A healthier chocolate cake made from quinoa and entirely flourless!




Coconut whipped cream 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line 2 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper and grease the pan.
  3. Add the quinoa, coconut oil, eggs, almond milk, espresso and vanilla in a high-speed blender until smooth.
  4. Next add the coconut sugar, xylitol, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the blender and mix just until combined.
  5. Pour half the mixture into each pan.
  6. Bake for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
  7. To make the coconut whipped cream, open the cans of coconut milk and scoop out the cream on top. (it should be separated from the liquid)
  8. Place in a chilled mixing bowl and beat on high until it forms stiff peaks
  9. Spread evenly onto the cake
  10. Top the cake with fresh fruit


No blender? You can make this cake in an electric mixer, or even a food processor.

I haven’t tried this recipe with flax-eggs, but I’m confident it will work well for a vegan substitution!
