Raspberries Stevia Coconut Or Almond Meal Chocolate Cake Torte Recipe

This recipe is delicious and wholesome and naturally sweetened

This deliciously rich and decadent raspberry and coconut chocolate torte contains only nourishing and nutrient rich ingredients. Its also incredibly moist in texture. Naturally sweetened with a little honey and raspberries, its base is made of coconut flour, (you can substitute almond flour for this recipe) making it free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar.

Coconut flour is very well priced and works fantastically as a flour alternative. This torte is fibre rich and so needs plenty of moisture, which is the reason for the copious amounts of eggs and fruit. Coconut and almond flour is available to buy at all good whole food and organic stores.

You can also use soaked pureed dates and applesauce mixed instead of raspberries for an extra sweet cake.

Be decadent and body will love you for it.
