Chocolate cake is a delicious dessert that transforms any occasion into a heaven-sent celebration. Unfortunately, a traditional cake recipe includes butter, milk, eggs, flour, and sugar. For many of us, this can lead to inflammation and digestive discomfort, making it a recipe for disaster.

With that in mind, my Chocolate Heaven Cake is perfect for those of you who want to make your cake and eat it too. This recipe calls for coconut flour and avocado oil to replace regular flour and butter. It also uses applesauce and maple syrup instead of the usual cupfuls of granulated sugar.

To smooth over the top of my cake I made chocolate frosting with creamy avocado and banana. This decadent spread can be adjusted easily to suit your tastes. Add more cocoa powder for a deeper chocolate flavor, stevia to make it sweeter, or a spoonful of coconut butter for a richer texture.

This chocolate cake is great for any celebration—even if all you want to celebrate is being able to eat a heavenly slice chocolate cake.
