When I was going to nutrition school in New York, I ate my first piece of flourless chocolate cake. I can’t even find words to describe how amazing it was. It was like eating rainbows and magic. I have never found it at another restaurant again, not one that tasted that good anyway! I have been putting off making it in my own kitchen because I was a bit intimidated to make one. Well, turns out they are not hard to make….and I even came up with a version that has healthy ingredients. You can thank me later.

Paleo Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless cakes are not hard to make. I came up with my own version that has healthy ingredients so you can feel good about eating this decadent chocolate treat. You can thank me later.

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and grease the whole thing with coconut oil.
    3. Chop the chocolate into small pieces so they melt easier.
    4. In a double boiler (or two saucepans, one inside the other), melt the chocolate and coconut oil.
    5. Remove double boiler from heat and set aside.
    6. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and honey until liquefied.
    7. Combine egg yolks, vanilla, and melted chocolate.
    8. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
    9. Slowly add coconut sugar to egg whites.
    10. Using a rubber spatula, fold the egg white mixture into melted chocolate, making sure not to work the batter too much.
    11. Transfer batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until set.

    12. Allow the cake to cool completely and transfer to a serving plate, the cake will settle once it is cooled and the center will sink a bit.
    13. Serve with a dusting of cocoa powder, whipped cream (or coconut whipped cream), or chocolate ganache.


Notes

Sometimes, I like to give my chocolate treats a mocha flavor. When I do this, I just add one packet of my favorite coffee to the mix. This stuff is a super healthy mushroom coffee, so it makes the chocolate treat a healthy mocha treat! You can find it HERE and you can use the coupon code “REALFOODRN” to get 10% off your order.
