Organic Mayan Cacao Chocolate Cake (Vegan)

“What is that amazing smell? Mmm! Chocolate!” – Disney’s Frozen

This is honestly one of my favorite scenes from the Disney movie, Frozen. In fact, my little one and I always reenact the scene. As you can probably tell, my mini me is also obsessed with chocolate. What can I say, it’s addicting. Who’s with me on this one?

A couple months ago, I purchased a Navitas Natural product I simply can not live without. Rest assured this is not a blog post ad. This is something I’ve been wanted to share with all of you for quite some time but summer 2014 got in the way. 🙂  It’s a Mayan Superfood. An organic cacao powder to be exact. I’ve used this in cakes, shakes, breakfast food and even to make chocolate truffles. Post on truffles coming soon!
