This is delightfully light and perfectly chocolatey! And with a high amount of eggs, it can even be snuck in as breakfast (or at least part of breakfast.)

Chocolate-Coconut Cake

(adapted from Detoxinista)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is heating, oil a 11×13 inch pan. The cake is purposely thin because I prefer a more moist dense cake than a big fluffy dry one…This can probably be done in an 8×8 I imagine but with fluffier thicker results.

Mix in bowl:

1/2 C coconut flour (shredded unsweetened coconut that’s been ground to an almost powder using the mason jar method:  https://sustainablynourished.wordpress.com/?s=mason)
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda

Whisk in these next ingredients until smooth:
6 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup agave, maple syrup, honey
2 TBSP vanilla extract

Pour into 11×13 cake pan, place in over for about 20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, and cake is firm to the touch.

Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

Prepare the glaze: Melt about a half bag of chocolate chips of choice on low in saucepan with 1-2 TBS coconut oil until completely smooth.

Spread icing on cake when cool and eat up! I like to store mine covered in the fridge, it keeps it fresher and somehow seems to bring out the flavor even more!
