The Ultimate Black Bean Chocolate Cake

Iron plays an important role in the body and is essential to human development and overall health. To make sure you’re getting enough, you should eat a variety of iron-rich foods every day. Here’s the recipe for a yummy iron-rich chocolate cake with black beans, shipped directly from a friend’s summer house on the Swedish west coast.

The Ultimate Black Bean Chocolate Cake
(a fairly large cake)

9 oz. (250 g) black beans
3 oz. (80 g or 7-8) dates
3 Tbsp coconut oil
4 1/2 Tbsp peanut butter
3 1/2 Tbsp cacao powder

Drain and rinse the beans, and pit the dates. Gently melt the coconut oil and the peanut butter over low heat, then process beans, dates, coconut oil and peanut butter in a powerful blender. Add cacao powder and mix until smooth. Evenly distribute the batter into a dish lined with parchment paper, and place in the freezer for around two hours. Remove from the freezer a short while before serving.

Tip!
There are so many ways to boost your iron levels. You can also eat spinach and bell pepper, or make a kale and orange smoothie. Both spinach and kale are high in iron, and to improve your absorption of iron, you should eat it along with a good source of vitamin C.
