Krista Mountford shared this amazing gluten free chocolate cake recipe on our Facebook Healthy Mummy and Lose Baby Weight Support Group. With no refined ingredients, we’re throwing it in the guilt free basket making it the perfect dessert if you’re following a Healthy Eating Plan.


Chocolate cake with Coconut Cream Ganache


  • 300g (3 cups) almond meal
  • 30g (¼ cup) coconut flour
  • 90g (¾ cup) raw cacao powder
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and scraped or a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 200g (1 cup) coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 60ml (½ cup) coconut oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 250ml (1 cup) full cream coconut milk
  • 1 handful of raspberries-chopped finely
  • Raspberries for decorating

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 200ml coconut cream (in fridge overnight)
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup or rice malt syrup


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Lightly grease bottom and sides of 20cm springform tin with coconut oil.
  • Mix together almond meal, coconut flour, cacao powder, vanilla, coconut sugar and baking soda in a bowl.
  • Mix the melted coconut oil (make sure it’s not too hot), eggs and coconut milk. Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry and mix together really well (in a mixer for a few minutes until it’s smooth).
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If it needs longer, cover with foil to prevent it from burning.
  • Once cooked turn it out of the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, cut in half horizontally.

To make the ganache:

  • Beat coconut cream until smooth, add cacao and maple syrup until smooth and light.

Spread your chopped raspberries on the bottom layer of the cake, then add half of the ganache. Top with second half of cake and cover in ganache. Decorate with raspberries and enjoy!
