Although it isn’t the prettiest cake I’ve ever made, this raw chocolate ginger frosted cake is really something to celebrate.  It is so healthy (high in protein, fiber, omega-3s, vitamins, and minerals) yet it doesn’t sacrifice any flavor.   I’d highly recommend this cake to any chocolate lover looking to satisfy their sweet tooth with a healthier alternative to the more traditional chocolate cake.

Raw Chocolate Ginger Frosted Cake:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • ¾ cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder
  • ¼ tsp high quality sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 3 Tbsp coconut nectar (can replace with maple syrup… NOT agave)
  • 5 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Grind the almonds, walnuts, and cacao in a food processor until it resembles bread crumbs. Add the sea salt, ginger, coconut nectar, dates and vanilla and mix again until you achieve a smooth texture. Press the mixture into a 9 x 5 inch rectangular glass baking dish.

Chocolate frosting:

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup avocado flesh
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup coconut nectar (can substitute with maple syrup… NOT agave)

Directions:

For the frosting, put all the ingredients for frosting in the food processor, or vitamix, and blend together.
