1 1/2 Cups packed almond meal
1/2 Cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1T coconut flour
1 1/2 Cups packed pitted dates
1/2 Cup water
3 eggs- separate yolks from whites
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees .
Mix together all dry ingredients (almond meal, cocoa powder, baking soda, coconut flour and salt) in a bowl and set aside.
Place the dates and water in a food processor or strong blender and blend until it forms a smooth paste.
Mix the date paste with the wet ingredients (egg yolks, coconut oil, vanilla), and mix until smooth.
Add the wet to the dry and stir until smooth. Fold in egg whites.
Grease an 8″ round cake pan, and pour in batter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for at least 10-15 minutes before serving so that it has time to set.
Serve plain or with fresh fruit and/or coconut whipped cream. May also be served chilled from fridge.
