Hello there!

Warm, rich and enticing, dark chocolate is the ultimate superfood when it comes to sweet treats. Coupled with the wondrous almonds, this decadent slice is just right with a cup of hot tea any day of the week. All you need is:

100g of dark (72% minimum) chocolate, roughly chopped
1.5 cups of ground almonds
2 eggs
¼ cup of melted coconut oil
1.2 cup of coconut sugar
1 tablespoon of raw cocoa powder (or 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder)
½ cup of almond milk (if mixture is getting too thick)
1 teaspoon of baking powder

Preheat your oven to gas mark 4 (medium) and melt 70g of the dark chocolate, coconut oil and coconut sugar in a separate pan. Once cooled blend in the eggs one at a time and then simply fold in with the ground almonds and baking powder. Grease your pan generously with some more coconut oil and pop in the oven for no more than 15-20 minutes, it’s that quick! Decorate however you wish, I’ve simply drizzled my remaining chocolate on top and garnished with some almonds. Yummy!

Happy Baking!
