Grain-Free Dark Chocolate Cake | Let's get real about chocolate cake. All that sugar and all those heavy carbs are not healthy. We all know that, right? Skip the wheat, grains, and gluten and try this Paleo-friendly grain-free dark chocolate cake instead! It's light, moist, and oh so chocolate-y! | WildernessFamilyNaturals.com

“Hi, my name is Heather, and I am a choco-holic.”

Or so it would seem. I love chocolate cake especially, and I finally figured out that adults can eat chocolate cake for breakfast…

There’s no one policing this! 😉

So, let’s get real about chocolate cake. All that sugar and all those heavy carbs are not healthy. We all know that, right?

One piece, once in a while, isn’t a terrible thing. But let’s be honest… how many of us are really able to do that? In our family, we have no less than 2 birthdays a month. That leads to a lot of “once in a whiles”.

Fortunately, there are options. Delicious and nutritious options!

This cake is one of those options — a delicious, nutritious option to the carb- and sugar-laden classic chocolate cake. It still has the texture and flavor of the classic and none of the guilt or blood sugar crashes.

Grain-Free Dark Chocolate Cake

What makes this grain-free dark chocolate cake so good? Clean, wholesome ingredients, of course.

Almond flour is a great replacement for wheat flour. It’s light, moist, and easy to work with. WFN’s coconut syrup is easy on the blood sugar, while adding a rich, caramel-y flavor that makes this cake shine.

This cake is even Paleo, making it even more of a win-win! Protein from eggs and the almond flour combine with the gentle sweetness of coconut syrup and the richness of WFN’s raw cacao powder for a cake that is out of this world. It will fill you up without filling you out (in moderation, of course!). 😉

It’s a grain-free dark chocolate cake that’s so good, you may even want to eat a piece for breakfast! Or lunch. Or both. I certainly won’t tell. 😉

Will this be your new go-to chocolate cake recipe?

    oh, this looks delectable! i am wondering what your suggestion would be as a substitute for the coconut syrup, since i don’t have it? OR is coconut nectar the same thing as coconut syrup? just thought of that…will look forward to your thoughts!

    Hi Joanna!!
    A great alternative to the coconut syrup would be honey. it won’t have the exact same flavor, but it’ll still taste great. If you have coconut nectar, that would be the same as the coconut syrup as well.
