Paleo Chocolate Cake



  • 10 fresh dates, seeds removed
  • 1 ripe banana (the riper the sweeter)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 vanilla bean, cut in half and scraped
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup 100% cocoa powder (no added sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 can coconut cream – left in the fridge overnight
  • Handfull of your favourite berries or a fruit of your choice (I’ve used strawberries)


  • Put dates and banana into a mix master and pulse until combined
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the eggs, vanilla, coconut oil and coffee and mix on low speed until well combined
  • Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter
  • Grease a pan with coconut oil, pour in the batter and bake at 180 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean
  • Whip some cold coconut cream with berries and serve with warm cake – this will definitely fix any sugar craving – who thought you’d be eating chocolate cake on the paleo challenge!!
