4 Ingredient Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Soy-Free Chocolate Cake

June 21, 2016|Posted in: Health, Recipes

My name is Saarah and I am a chocoholic.  Like seriously.  I have to have chocolate once a day.  But it’s from a plant, so it must be healthy, right?

There are so many health benefits from cocoa such as decreased cholesterol, improved blood vessel health, high in antioxidants, and much more.  However finding the right chocolate that isn’t just going to clog up your arteries can sometimes be difficult to come by.  Particularly when chocolate can be laced with so many additives, preservatives, and even waaaay too much sugar.

So I decided to go on a hunt for a recipe, and I found one.  I made one slight change to it to ensure I knew what was going into it.  This recipe is super simple, requires only 4 ingredients, and cooks quickly.  Most of the time when I make this, I slice it up into cubes and put it in the fridge so that I can just eat a few cubes a day.
