This flourless chocolate cake requires very little effort and is a perfect treat for two to share (or just for one if you’ve got a serious sweet craving going on!) It’s gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. If you aren’t using chocolate in its natural state (raw cacao) it’s best to try and use a dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids as that’s where you’ll find the healthy antioxidants that chocolate contains.
This is best served warm, a few minutes after coming out of the oven. Alternatively, if you have any leftovers you can pop it in the fridge and enjoy it as a fudgier treat the next day!
100g dark chocolate
4 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup

- Break the chocolate into pieces and add with coconut oil in a double boiler over a simmering saucepan of water until melted. Set aside to cool.
- Preheat oven to 325 °F. Combine the rest of the ingredients into a food processor until combined. Add the melted chocolate and coconut oil.
- Grease a baking dish (with coconut oil) and pour the mixture in. Bake for 15 minutes and enjoy!
