Admittedly, I’m on a chocolate crazy run lately. But can you blame me? I thought so, ha. For all the cheeky monkeys out there, head over to my Banana Chocolate Muffins recipe.

Recipe created by: Jennifer Walter
  • 240 g pitted dates
  • 2 espresso shots
  • 100 g almond butter
  • 50 g raw cacao powder
  • 260 ml oat milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp. crdamom
  • 160 g ground hazelnuts
  • some tahini for greasing
Chocolate frosting
  • 200 g sweet potatoe
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • handful of chopped hazelnuts
  1. As usual, start with preheating your oven to 180 C and grease a round cake form (approx. 20cm in diameter) evenly with Tahini. Using an electrical food processor, chop the pitted dates together with the two espresso shots and the almond butter until you get a fine mousse. Stir in the cacao powder, cinnamon and cardamom and blitz through. Now, add your chocolate mush to an additional bowl and combine well with the oat milk. Stir in the ground hazelnuts. Pour everything into the prepared cake tin and bake for about 1 hour. Take the cake out and let cool off completely.


  2. Chocolate frosting

    Cut your sweet potatoe in half and it roast in the oven (same temperature) for about 40 minutes or until the potatoe is soft and tender. Let it cool off a bit. These roasted motherf*** can be super frigging hot, so watch it. Scoop out the soft content of your sweet potatoe and add it to your food processor. Add the maple syrup and cacao powder and blend it all until smooth. Spread the frosting evenly around the cake and finish off with some roughly chopped hazelnuts for decoration.
