There are few desserts in this world that hit the spot like chocolate cake. It’s just a classic that we want to enjoy any time of year! In this recipe we take the classic chocolate cake and give it a paleo twist, with a delicious chocolate coconut ganache frosting topped with freeze dried strawberries!
Unlike your normal cake, we baked ours in a square tin to make cake bars instead of slices, effectively turning cake from a silverware affair into a portable treat! We use 10 Pantry Keto Bites in this recipe, which shakes out to between 5-6mg THC and 5-6mg CBD per serving. Feel free to adjust the amount of keto bites to your comfort – it’s really easy to tailor this recipe to your personal tolerance level!
Enjoy these paleo chocolate cake bars for the perfect weekend treat, or even a delicious treat for your hunny or gal pals this Valentine’s Day!
