Flourless Chocolate Cake


I recently visited New York City with my parents and we ate dinner at The Green Table restaurant located in Chelsea Market. My dad ordered a flourless chocolate cake for dessert and it was delicious (I of course asked for a bite).

I decided that for my grandfather's 87th birthday I would bake a flourless chocolate cake. This cake is loaded with healthy fats from almond flour and coconut oil and also protein from eggs. This recipe is a perfect one to bake for a friend that has a gluten or dairy allergy, or both.

You should also prepare some vanilla coconut milk ice cream or regular vanilla ice cream to serve with the cake because it is extremely rich.
