Dense Chocolate Cake

Black Bean Chocolate Cake recipe - dense and delicious

Our Chocolate cake is a breeze to make. It’s gluten free and dairy free, too. Use a cookie cutter to cut out a shape from a sliced piece of the cake and garnish with sauce and berries for a special Valentine’s Day dessert.

“Talk about cake with benefits! Packed with protein and fiber this recipe is sure to satisfy your taste buds and your body. Using coconut sugar is an amazing alternative to conventional sugar, it’s mineral rich and lower on the glycemic index.”  Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
