Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine coconut oil, cold brew, cacao powder, and cinnamon.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and monk fruit extract.
  4. In the small mixing bowl, whisk together the “buttermilk” (almond milk + apple cider vinegar), eggs, and vanilla extract, then add to the mixture in the large mixing bowl.
  5. Mix everything until completely combined. You may use an electric mixer, but this works just as well mixing by hand.
  6. Add the batter to a 9×13 baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Once finished, remove from the oven and allow to cool while you make the frosting.
  8. Combine all frosting ingredients together and mix with a mixer, blender/food processor, or by hand until completely smooth.
  9. Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the frosting, then cut into slices.
