For some reason eating healthily and deprivation seem to be inextricably linked. But why should eating healthily involve removing one of the greatest foods from your diet? That’s right – we are HUGE advocates of the idea that you can have your cake and eat it; your Salted Caramel Chocolate Ganache Cake to be exact.

How? We hear you shouting. How can something that sounds so toe-tappingly sumptuous possibly be a healthy option? Let’s not forget that a cake is essentially the sum of its parts, and this one’s parts are all natural ingredients:

• The almond and coconut flours are naturally gluten-free
• The typically refined sugars are replaced with natural coconut sugar and maple syrup
• The fat comes from coconut oil.

OK, you concede, the cake does sound quite virtuous, but a ganache topping? Well, this thick, glistening layer of soft, sweet, chocolate heaven is simply made up of four ingredients: coconut oil, coconut mylk, raw cacao, and maple syrup.

Why is raw cacao so good for you?
It has 4 times the antioxidants compared to cocoa powder, and in fact it’s antioxidant levels are some of the highest of any food in the world. It’s kind of a big deal – we’d call it a superfood.

And let’s not forget the best bit of this cake: broken pieces of our Mylk + Salted Caramel chocolate bar for decoration. We thank our wonderful recipe creator, Kaja for this delicious recipe!
