Decadent Healthy Chocolate Cake

So I baked a chocolate cake for Father’s Day. I got the recipe from and friend but tweaked it up a little! I’m all about indulging in healthy sweets with a less sugar as possible. The cake was both gluten and dairy free. Since the cake calls for coconut flour its more on the dry side, but there are other ingredients you can add to make it more moist.

Here’s my recipe:

(see links for where to purchase them)

1 cup coconut flour

114/ cup almond four

3/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder

2 tbsp baking soda

1 cup coconut oil melted

8 eggs

1/4 – 1/2 cup coconut flour or 1/4 cup maple or coconut nectar

pinch salt

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

mix all the dry ingredients together them fold in the oil, eggs, vanilla and maple or nectar if you are using that in place of the coconut sugar. Add in chocolate chunks last after everything is mixed well.

Bake in a bundt pan on 350 for 30-35 minutes, check it at 20 minutes

top with coconut whipped cream or organic chocolate syrup, or both!!

Xo,

Jodi
