Quinoa gives this dark chocolate cake texture without the sugary sweetness
If you are a dark chocoholic, this is your cake! Quinoa gives it a great taste and texture and won’t spike blood sugar levels. I omitted the oil in this recipe by mistake once and it still tasted moist, rich, and chocolaty—great for Kapha.
Makes 8 servings
Variation 1: Omit oil.
Variation 2: Add 30 ml (1 tbsp) grated orange rind and omit oil.
Raw unadulterated cocoa powder is what foodies call cacao, as chocolate is from the seed of the cacao tree. Cocoa is high in magnesium, which helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function (and thus prevents cramping), keeps our heart rhythms steady, and our bones strong, and supports a healthy immune system. Chocolate contains caffeine, so if you’re eating it at night, go easy!
