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.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs, divided
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil — where to find
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate — we like this kind
  • 1/2 cup honey — we use this kind
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar — where to find
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • Optional: 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.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and grease the whole thing with coconut oil
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces so they melt easier

  • Slowly add coconut sugar to egg-whites
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold egg-white mixture into melted chocolate, making sure not to work the batter too much
  • Transfer batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until set

  • 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
