This recipe was born of a brownie craving. After perusing various paleo brownie recipes online, I decided to make up my own using a mix of what I had read. My trick was to swap out a few ingredients and add in protein powder to make it a healthier version, while still satisfying that chocolate craving.

What I ended up with was the moistest, fluffy and amazing paleo chocolate cake — not brownies! WOW! This one is going to be made for every birthday cake at our house. This recipe will make one 8×8″ cake. If you want to do a layer cake, I suggest doubling the recipe and using two round pans.

Paleo Chocolate Cake

This recipe was born of a brownie craving. What I ended up with was a moist, fluffy and amazing paleo chocolate cake -- not brownies! WOW!

Ingredients

  • 2 plantains
  • 3 pastured eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup chocolate protein powder (you can also substitute hemp protein or cocoa powder)*
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 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!

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a food processor, combine everything but the chocolate chips and process until smooth.

3. Grease a glass baking dish, or brownie pan.

4. Add chocolate chips to the batter and stir until combined.

5. Pour into a baking dish and sprinkle with more chocolate chips.

6. Eat the leftover chocolate chips, it's okay I gave you permission!

7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the center is not jiggly when you shake the pan.

8. Enjoy topped with homemade whipped cream, dusted with cocoa, or drizzled with Paleo Ganache.
