Bottom Layer: Chocolate “Oreo” Cake:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 glass pan with butter or coconut oil.
2. In a large mixing bowl combine together the butter, coconut oil, coconut palm sugar, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time until thoroughly mixed.
3. Stir in the coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, almond butter and coconut flour. Then stir in the cocoa, mixing until smooth. Lastly, fold in the zucchini and 1 cup of chocolate chips.
4. Spoon the batter into your greased 9 x 13 glass pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. While your cake is baking go ahead and prepare the center Paleo Chocolate Pudding layer and the top Paleo Whipped Cream Frosting layer. Let the cake completely cool before adding the other two layers.
Middle Layer: Paleo Chocolate Pudding:
1. Soften your dates by placing them in a bowl of warm water while you prepare your other ingredients.
2. Cut your avocados in half and remove the pits, then scoop them out with a spoon into a food processor, they should be soft and ripe so you won’t need to cut them, unless your food processor sucks and then you have bigger problems my friend.
3. Now remove the pits from your dates and tear them in half. Then add remaining ingredients and puree until you have a smooth pudding consistency. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times. Transfer from the food processor into a bowl and place in the fridge while you make your Paleo whipped cream topping.
Top Layer: Paleo Whipped Cream Frosting:
1. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor and mix until well combined.
2. Transfer whipped cream into a bowl and place in the fridge.
3. After your cake has completely cooled it’s time to make your Paleo Chocolate Lasagna! Take your Paleo Chocolate Pudding and spread a thick layer on top of the cake like frosting. I used a rubber spatula for this. Now take your Paleo Whipped Cream Frosting and spread a layer on top of your Paleo Chocolate Pudding layer. Since the cream is a little thicker than the pudding I used a combination of a knife, rubber spatula and my finger to get it across the top without mixing the chocolate pudding layer into it. Do whatever works best for you.
4. Lastly garnish by sprinkling the Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips all across the top of your Paleo Chocolate Lasagna. I also melted some of the chocolate in my handy dandy Zip-Lock bag and did a chocolate swirly decoration thingy (technical name) over the top.
