Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, GAPS Chocolate Cake Recipe

Before going on the GAPS diet this past January, we were on a Gluten-Free diet for about two years.  One of my favorite recipes I discovered during that time was Gluten Free Goddesses Flourless Chocolate Cake.!  This stuff is delicious!  I dare say it's the best cake I've ever had.  Moist, delicious, yummyness! 

But, it does have sugar.  And since GAPS is a sugar-free diet, I had to figure out a way to adapt the recipe.  So, here's what I came up with:

Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, GAPS Chocolate Cake:

8 pastured eggs
1 C butter (room temp, preferably cut up into pieces)
1/4 C cocoa powder
1 T vanilla extract
3/4 C hot coffee
1 1/2 C raw, local honey

Put the above ingredients in your blender, and mix.

Pour into a greased 9" square or round pan.  I grease mine with coconut oil, but you could also use pastured butter. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until a knife comes out clean. It will be really puffy when you pull it out of the oven, but will soon shrink down to a dense, moist, delicious cake. 



  1. Is there really NO flour at all in this? Does the cocoa powder act as the flour?

    I was hoping to find a chocolate cake recipe that uses coconut flour!

    1. There is really no flour! The eggs make it cake-like. :) Hope you like it!

  2. So this definitely turned out to be more of a custard than cake for us. My children didn't care for it (although they usually love custard), but I thought it was good, although a little too sweet for my taste. Thank you for the GAPS friendly recipe!
