Coconut Chocolate Cake

Nothing like a good piece of chocolate cake!

My mum found this recipe and like usual we just slightly adapted it to suit our gluten and dairy free needs. It isn’t overly sweet but perfect to still satisfy the cravings with a low sugar option. It is delicious and perfect for a lunch box treat for the kids or yourself.

Enjoy.
