Disclaimer: This has Cacao powder which is not a food on the strict diet. Cacao has no caffeine in it and has a lot of antioxidants. I do not see anything wrong with this product, but it should be a test food and you should make your own decision if you want to add it. I personally use it because I have not found anything wrong with it. There is nothing bad in it for candida and can only help you immune system. Here is a website about this product : http://integrative-living.com/page.php?htmlID=Raw%20Cacao%20Powder.

I made a cake that turned out more like a brownie but it is still yummy. I used this recipe. http://www.comfytummy.com/2010/12/08/gluten-free-almond-flour-chocolate-cake/
But I did not add the honey. I instead added 1/2 cup of xylitol and also 1/4 cup of ghee (you could add more if you want). I also used cacao powder instead of cocoa powder. Cacao has no caffeine in it.

So here is my recipe that I changed for the diet:

Gluten Free Almond Flour Chocolate Cake from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
Ingredients
2 cups blanched almond meal (Red Bob’s mill)
1/4 cup unsweetened cacao powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp aluminum free baking soda
1/2 cup xylitol
2 large eggs
1 TB vanilla sweetleaf liquid vanilla creme stevia (Or you could use alchol free vanialla extract though you might want to add more xylitol to it then.)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 inch cake pan and dust with almond flour. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined. Pour into cake pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 1 hour. Serve.

Love,
Lauren
