Chocolate Cake - YUMMY - Flourless, Sugarless, Butterless

Lindsey sent this recipe to me and it is fantastic. The sweetness is from dates. It has no flour. Coconut oil , instead of butter,  cuts the cholesterol. It does have eggs. Give it a try. I frosted with a bit of no-sugar added peanut butter. LOL

I know the sugar from fruit will elevate blood sugar, but my doctor said not to worry about fruit during the 3 months leading up to my most recent A1C. I ate fruit  and snacks sweetened with fruit here and there, and my A1C still went down. I was grateful not to have to eliminate fruit. 


  • 7.5 oz  unsweetened baking chocolate or at 70% cocoa
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup pitted dates, or about 10 dates
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup  coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a food processor, pulse chocolate, cocoa and baking until until texture of coarse sand. 

Pulse pitted dates, then eggs, coconut oil and vanilla.
