I remember when I was a kid and my birthday rolled around and my mom would always ask me what type of cake I wanted. Well, my answer was always the same- yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I was simple. I was also a chunky little kid who had that cake for breakfast the next morning! Yikes! Anywho, once I began eating healthier and experimenting with paleo goodies, I was looking for a way to replicate that beloved cake. This cake comes pretty darn close to that. It’s chocolaty and moist and makes for a perfect birthday cake! You can even try experimenting with different berries to put in it and perhaps even use some coconut butter as frosting- LET”S GET CRAZY!

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup blueberries
2 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup nutbutter of your choice (I like almond)
1-2 Tbs raw honey
¼ cup raw cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut flour (You can also add in a scoop of protein powder!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt

 

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Place dry ingredients in one bowl and mix. Place wet ingredients in another bowl and mix. Keep blueberries set aside.
  3. Add the wet and dry mix together and mix well, then carefully add the blueberries and mix- you don’t want them to mush!
  4. Spray a loaf pan with some coconut oil and pour in the batter.
  5. Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until you poke the middle with a toothpick and it comes out clean!

Tips and Tricks: I also added some extra dark chocolate chips to the top of the loaf before I put it in the oven because I made this for AJ’s birthday. With the leftovers the next day, we warmed up a couple pieces and spread some ghee on top- it was delicious!
