I based this healthy chocolate cake recipe on one from Teresa Cutter. It was so moist and yum! I didn’t wait long enough for the cake to cool before adding the icing because I’m impatient, so the icing ran everywhere. But it still tasted good! :)

Ingredients (cake)

  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 3 eggs (or egg substitute if vegan)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple

Ingredients (icing)

  • 5 tbsp softened coconut oil
  • 5 tbsp coconut sugar (or sweetener)
  • 1-2 tsp cacao powder


  1. Preheat oven to 160C (320F).
  2. Combine dry cake ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients and mix well with a hand held blender.
  4. Bake for 50-55 minutes.
  5. Combine icing ingredients in a bowl. Wait for cake to cool completely before icing.
