Totally Epic Raspberry Reishi Chocolate Cake
This recipe is inspired by a chocolate cake recipe that’s been in my family for as long as I can remember. It was my birthday cake every year growing up, I even remember my parents sent me a whole chocolate cake IN THE F’ING MAIL (identically looking to this one, minus the raspberries) all the way to Montréal for my birthday during my first year of university. I unwrapped a box, and a freshly baked (slightly smooshed) cake was sitting inside (#parentinggoals).
Here is my healthier version of that cake, and also the most insane-looking, epic, drool-worthy chocolate cake you’ve ever seen.
2/3 cup organic cocoa pow (or raw cacao)
2 1/4 organic GF flour (bob red mills is the business)
2 cups organic maple (or coconut) sugar
1 1/2 tsp aluminium free baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cup freshly squeezed organic orange juice (or coconut milk, milk, or water - I recommend the OJ)
3 organic, pasture raised eggs
1 1/4 cup organic coconut oil (melted)
1 tbsp wild-crafted reishi powder (optional)
FOR THE CAKE:
Mix all dry ingredients in food processor, add juice + eggs and mix again, then add in coconut oil slowly while the machine is running
Bake for 55 mins in oiled bunt cake pan
FOR THE GANACHE ICING:
Chop in food processor 8 oz. of raw organic 100% cacao mass until finely ground
On the stove, warm up 3/4 cup of raw, organic cream (35%), and then whisk in the caco mass *optional: a few tbsp of maple syrup if you like your stuff sweeter*,
Refrigerate for at least 30 mins until it thickens before frosting the (cooled) cake (this is imperative for ganache icing to stick to the cake)
And finally, top with organic raspberries.
(Dairy free) white chocolate bark with macadamia nuts and wild rose bee pollen.
Gorgeous, buttery, apple and apricot tart.
Nighttime gummies to help you get into a deep, restful sleep.
Organic pumpkin spiced brownies full of warming and nourishing cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, cacao, pumpkin and pumpkin seeds!
One of my favourite recipes that highlights the incredible subtle flavour of pine pollen!
Chewy-gooey sweet potato brownies that are so healthy you can eat them for breakfast!
A white chocolate peppermint matcha swirled into a chaga laced chocolate, spiked with psilocybin. #chocolategoals
I recently discovered how easy it is to make homemade toasted coconut butter, and this is the first (of many) recipes incorporating this delicious coconut butter. Homemade chocolate FTW!
Fudgesicles were my fav as a kid, and this recipe is all the mouth pleasure without any of the regret. Full of healthy fats, adaptogens, collagen- and no added sugar!
Bone broth-based popsicles.. need I say more? These are without a doubt the most nutrient dense frozen treat to grace the depths of your freezer. Not only are they delicious, but full of healthy fats, minerals, vitamins, collagen, and adaptogens!
Homemade white chocolate, with a delicious pumpkin pie filling. These are seriously insane.
Homemade pumpkin pie... is there anything better? Homemade crust full of brain-boosting walnuts, powerful pine pollen, and a hint of cardamom, and the pie itself tastes just like the regular thing but contains no nasties... and I even snuck some collagen in there.
These cups are divine. There is just something about reishi, chaga, and chocolate that go together like nobody’s business. Oh and almond butter… game over.
Here is a healthier version of a chocolate cake recipe that’s been in my family for as long as I can remember. It was my birthday cake every year growing up, and is still a fam favourite.
Despite being more of a chocolate (cake, cookie, brownie) kinda gal, blueberry pie is my dad’s absolute favourite. I devised this healthier recipe for his past birthday, and although he generally eats pies filled with the regular demons (refined sugar, gluten, etc), this pie was a total hit. Is there anything better than nourishing someone you love? I don't think so.
These cookies were born out of the no-added-sugar motto that is my life. Instead of sugar or dates, I have harnessed the natural sweetness of the mighty sweet potato (it’s right there in it’s name!) and made cookies so healthy that I LITERALLY only eat them for breakfast.
