This rich, fudgy gluten free chocolate cake is a breeze to make and high in protein (thanks, black beans!) It's not overly sweet and boasts a beautiful dark-chocolate flavour. If you're looking to make it fancy, add some orange and BAM!
"Talk about a cake with benefits! It’s packed with protein and fiber to satisfy your taste buds and your body. And using coconut sugar, which is mineral-rich and lower on the glycemic index, is a fantastic alternative to conventional sugar.” Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
SERVINGS: 12 Slices
🍫 ¼ cup water
🍫 2 Tbsp Holy Crap Natural Superseed Blend
🍫 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
🍫 2 large eggs
🍫 ½ cup sugar (coconut sugar, brown sugar or white sugar)
🍫 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
🍫 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

▶︎ Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
▶︎ Pour the water into a bowl, stir in the Natural Superseed Blend cereal and let sit for 5 minutes.
▶︎ Place all the ingredients, except the chopped chocolate and blackberries, in a blender and process until smooth. Pour the batter into the loaf pan, sprinkle the chopped chocolate evenly across the surface and use the back of a spoon to push it all into the batter. Bake for 35 minutes.
