Chocolate Cake:

• 2 cups of Randall Pinto Beans, drained and rinsed

• ½ cup cocoa powder

• 4 oz of dark chocolate

• 1 cup of pitted dates

• 2 Tbsp of maple syrup

• A pinch of salt

• ½ cup of milk

• ⅕ cup of oil

• 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Whipped Cream:

• 1 13.5 oz can of full-fat coconut milk refrigerated for at least an hour (scoop only the top of the cream and keep the liquid for a smoothie)

• 1 tsp of vanilla extract

• 2 Tbsp of maple syrup


Place the Randall Pinto Beans, pitted dates, and milk into a blender/food processor and blend until smooth.

Add the dark chocolate and oil to a small bowl. Melt over the stove or in the microwave, stirring to combine.

Pour the melted chocolate and oil into the blender/processor, then add the vanilla extract, cacao powder, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.

Mix to combine. Add maple syrup until you’ve achieved your desired sweetness.

Place the dough into a springform pan and refrigerate for at least an hour to thicken.

Meanwhile, prepare the whipped cream by placing the coconut cream (scooped from the top of the can) in a medium-sized bowl. Add the vanilla extract and maple syrup. Whip the cream and set aside in the fridge until the dough is ready.

Once the dough is chilled and solid, take it out of the springform pan and slice it into two layers.

Spread half of the whipped cream onto the bottom layer, then place the other layer on top and spread the rest of the cream. Decorate optionally with crumbled dark chocolate or nuts.

Enjoy right away or keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
