Now, I don’t know if you consider chocolate as Paleo, but we believe that it is OK – as long as you get the dark chocolate, organic, that contains no milk or refined sugars, etc etc and so forth and so on.
The kind I like (just for eating) is one from World Market with sea salt (ssoooo good!!!), but for making an actual cake, I didn’t use any already bought chocolate – just cocoa.
Again, I’m not really into sweets, but Angel really likes dessert after dinner, so I’m going to make him this cake for Valentine’s Day (maybe even in the shape of a heart)…even though we really don’t celebrate it. Why not say I Love You with some decadent Paleo Chocolate Cake, right??!
Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Cake
- ½ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
- ½ tsp Baking Soda
- 1/3 cup ground, raw Cashews
- ¼ cup Cacao Powder
- 5 Eggs
- ½ cup Honey
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ cup Coconut Oil
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
