Healthy Chocolate-Beetroot Cake

Now this healthy and yummy chocolate beetroot cake is using the Moringa Powder as decoration that will add to flavor as well as giving the benefits:

(Mоrіngа Olіfеrа іѕ a соmmоnlу knоwn vеgеtаblе trее (the miracle tree) native tо the Hіmаlауаn fооthіllѕ, which has rеmаrkаblе nutrіеnt values fоr thе benefit оf human bеіngѕ: Vіtаmіnѕ, Cаlсіum, Irоn and Pоtаѕѕіum rісh leaves оf Mоrіngа Oleifera)

Recipe for the cake:

3 medium sized beetroots (slightly cooked and 2 of them put through a food processor, one grated for texture)

3 organic eggs

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup maple syrup (I used less, as I don’t like to too sweet)

1 tsp. Vanilla essence

1 tsp. bicarb soda

1 tsp. cinnamon or 5-spice powder

1/2 cup raw cacao

1/3 cup almond meal

1/4 cup coconut flour (or quinoa flour or tapioca flour)

I am currently sourcing all kind of Superfoods that are of high quality, preferably from Australia or consciously grown and farmed in other countries – and not only am I using them and testing their claims, but I am also incorporating them in the recipes or the edible decorations in my new cook book…next blog is an example.

I’ve bought a good-quality Nikon for food photography and it will be fun to come up with new healthy and delicious recipes that are  easy to follow by everyone.
