Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe

If you want to be my best friend, send me chocolate. Not for special occasions, not for a certain time of the month. Nope. It’s good any day of the week. Of course it has to be clean, and the darker the better.

Besides eating it straight from an awesome bar (I love you Amano!), the next best thing I love to do with chocolate is to bake with it. Cakes, brownies, puddings…yeah, I LOVE chocolate. We know that gluten is rough on the body (that goes for everyone), so creating a gluten free chocolate cake recipe that still makes you go “mmmmm” is incredibly satisfying. (There have certainly been a few attempts at gluten free cake recipes that sounded more like “ughhh.” 🙂

The secret ingredient in this recipe is garbanzo beans. Just like with our chocolate avocado pudding, depending on who you’re feeding this to you may not want to disclose that bit of info until they’re a couple bites in!

This is a very simple chocolate cake that can be in the oven in a matter of minutes. Experiment with replacing the sugar with stevia or lacanto, and then you’ve removed every ounce of downside and are left with only a clean, protein packed energy snack. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with real food?!
