happy fathers day!

My gift to my dad was a raw chocolate cake. He is new to the whole healthy lifestyle and it has truly turned his life around. I kind of gave him quite the nudge to go to the living foods institute. It changed his attitude, allowed him to drop 20+ lbs, and it just amazed all of those around him watching those changes. He has a HUGE HUGE HUGE sweet tooth and loved eating ice cream in bed, cookies, and so I always try to make him a few sweet treats. This is the recipe I used, but it was quite a lot...made two pie pans full! This is super super rich and satisfying.


1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup carob 
1/2 cup finely ground almonds (soaked)
1/4 cup brazil nuts
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut or cacoa butter
Pinch of sea salt (I added more than this because the salt really brings out the flavor and is just so                           delicious)

FILLING: (this is the best chocolate "syrup/frosting" you will ever have)
1 1/2 cups cacao powder
1/4 cup mesquite powder
1/4 cup carob powder
1 1/2 cups honey
1 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon Vanilla 

1 tablespoon Maca

This was so delicious when i first made it...creamy and luscious, but we also then froze it and it turned into the best chocolates ever. it's like a chocolate bar. so you can do that and pop off bites for a chocolate fix.
