    Ingredients

    Cake

    • 3 Cups Oat Flour
    • ½ Cup Coconut Sugar
    • ½ Cup Cocoa
    • 1 ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
    • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
    • ¼ Cup Chocolate Chips or Cacao Nibs
    • 1 Cup Water
    • 1 Squirt Lime Juice
    • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil or Vegan Butter, Softened

    Frosting

    • 1 Cup Silken tofu, pressed
    • ¼ Cup Powdered Sugar
    • ½ Teaspoon Mint Extract
    • Natural Green Food Coloring (if desired)

    Directions

    Mix dry ingredients first.  Add in wet ingredients. Mix well with whisk or electric mixer. If batter is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of water until you reach the desired consistency. Line 9” X 9” pan with olive oil (or your choice oil).  Pour in cake batter. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. To make the frosting, place the pressed silken tofu into a bowl with powdered sugar, mint extract, and coloring if desired. Blend together with a whisk or electric mixer until smooth. Depending on the water of the tofu, you may need to add more powdered sugar, or oat flour, to achieve the desired consistency. Once the cake is done, allow to cool, and top with icing.

    Enjoy!
