So sorry for the delay, but here are some of the featured recipes from last months cooking class (also I apologize for the lack of picutres, I didn’t think about it until after class was over).

Cake Pops

What’s in It:

Chocolate cake

  • 4 tbsp coconut flour
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp macadamia nut oil
  • 1/2 cup agave
  • 2 cups 100% chocolate melted
  • 1/2 cup crushed almonds

How to make it: For the chocolate batter blend flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. In another bowl mix eggs, oil, and agave. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Bake at 350 in a greased pan for 20 minutes or so or until a toothpick comes out smoothly. Cool cake completely.Once cooled, crumble cake into a big bowl, making sure there are no large pieces. Massage cake mixture with hands. Mold into balls or place in a mold. Transfer to a parchment lined plate. Place plate in the freezer for 1-2 hours until very solid. Remove one ball at a time from freezer. Dip about ½ inch of the tip of a lollipop stick into melted chocolate. Insert the lollipop stick straight into the bottom of the heart, pushing about ⅓ of an inch deep. Holding stick with ball attached, dip entirely into melted chocolate, until covered Make sure chocolate coating meets at base of lollipop stick; this helps secure balls to the stick. Twirl any excess chocolate coating off the cake pop so it is evenly coated. Sprinkle with crushed nuts. Place the stick into a Styrofoam block. Make the remaining balls and allow to set completely.
