This Black Forest Cake from Lucie Javorska is completely vegan, whole grain, and can be made sugar-free.

Just one slice contains almost a half of the daily recommended intake for fiber and around 25 percent of your iron, magnesium, and phosphorus needs per day! The cake is also a source of high quality carbohydrates and healthy fats from the avocado and chia seeds, as well as a surprisingly high amount of protein. You can even eat a slice for breakfast and feel good about it. And the best part? It doesn’t taste healthy at all!
