Chocolate and Raspberry Torte

Paleo Chocolate Raspberry TorteA few weeks ago we celebrated my Aunt Justine’s birthday. My Aunt Justi and I are extremely close. She had her first baby when I was eleven, and I spent every moment I could at her house helping her with her kids (great practice for when I have a baby one day!) My Aunt Justi has always been there for me to help guide me along the way when I was younger. I credit her for inspiring me to awaken my passion for healthy food, and she always tried to set a good example for me in the ways of healthy eating.

For my Aunt’s birthday, I really wanted to make her a special treat. She was avoiding certain foods due to some allergies, so I made sure that her birthday treat was free of refined sugar, dairy, and gluten – that’s not so hard in my kitchen! She reminded me that chocolate and raspberry is one of her favorite dessert combinations, and immediately I knew what I wanted to make for her. A simple, yet decadent dark chocolate dessert filled with fresh raspberries. I added a bit of coconut milk to the batter because coconut flour can be pretty dry, and adding more moisture seems to really help with that.

This dessert was a smash hit. My Aunt loved every bite, and best of all, she got to enjoy something sweet that fit with her allergy protocol on her birthday.

I love you Aunt Justi!
