Cocoa is an excellent source of antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation that leads to many chronic conditions, including autoimmunity, heart disease, and cancer.
Be sure to purchase raw, unprocessed cocoa that has not been heated to high temperatures as it kills many of these beneficial compounds.
It’s also a good idea to make sure your dairy products and eggs come from organic, grass-fed, and pasture-raised sources as these will have fewer toxic chemicals and antibiotics.
Let’s Do It!
Let the oven preheat at 300F while preparing the cake.
Start by making the crust. Combine all of the crust ingredients in a bowl and stir well with a spoon to obtain a uniform mixture.
Transfer evenly on all sides of a springform pan. Flatten using a spoon to make the crust of the cake. Let the crust bake in the oven for around 10 minutes. Remove from the oven once the top turns lightly golden brown. Allow to cool.
Make the filling for the cake. Whisk all the filling ingredients together to make a soft, creamy mix. You can use a blender or a hand whisk for this.
Pour the filling on the baked crust. Rebake for another 30 minutes at 350 F. Once cooked, move the cake to the fridge and chill for 6 hours.
Decorate with berries and the rest of the toppings on the surface if desired. Slice into wedges and enjoy!
