Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and position the oven rack to the middle position. Grease an 18×13-inch rimmed baking sheet. In a mixing bowl combine the oat flour, protein powder, baking soda and salt. In another mixing bowl combine the eggs, yolks, yogurt and vanilla and mix until smooth.

 

2. In a small pot melt the chocolate chips, coconut oil, water, cocoa powder and butter over low heat. Mix the melted chocolate mixture into the flour mixture until fully combined. Mix the egg-yogurt mixture into the batter until fully combined. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.

 

3. For the Icing: While the cake bakes, melt the butter, almond milk, cocoa powder and honey over low heat. Mix until smooth. Off heat, mix in the confectioner’s Swerve and vanilla extract until smooth. Spread warm icing evenly over the hot cake and sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Let the cake cool completely on a wire rack for about an hour, then move into the fridge to chill for an hour, until the icing is set. Cut into 35 squares, serve and enjoy!
