Chocolate Olive Oil Cake
Dessert is often celebratory and we have a lot to celebrate—Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s, to name a few. And what is a dessert spread without chocolate? December’s Functional Food is cocoa. Fitting for this time of year, isn’t it?
Our recipe for Chocolate Olive Oil Cake is rich and indulgent and, at the same time, contributes some benefits from high-quality cocoa. Cocoa is rich in polyphenols and flavanols, antioxidants that may help to lower your risk of chronic disease. Stick to a small portion and we’re giving you the green light on this sweet treat.
