As always, we aim to give you recipes that help to boost your magnesium levels!

This cake contains flaxseeds, almond meal and cocoa powder - all containing naturally high levels of magnesium.



Zucchini is rich in several vitamins, minerals, and is high in antioxidants!


Gluten Free, Vegan


  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup coconut yoghurt (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup plant based milk
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (squeezed dry)
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or meal)
  • 1/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 190 C
  • Line your cake tin with baking paper
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flaxseed meal with water and let rest for 5 minutes. Then add yoghurt, maple syrup, coconut sugar, bi carb soda, baking powder, sea salt, and cocoa powder, and whisk again.
  • Next add the plant milk and melted coconut oil and whisk to combine. Add grated zucchini (make sure it has been squeezed of excess liquid) and stir to combine.
  • Add gluten-free flour, almond flour and whisk until just combined. If mixture seems too thick add a bit more plant milk. (The batter should be thick and scoopable.)
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and then transfer to lined cake tin.
  • Top with more chocolate chips (optional)
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool for 5 minutes in the pan before lifting out using the parchment paper.
  • The texture is best when cooled completely. The longer this cake cools, the fluffier and more tender it becomes.
  • Slice, and eat as is, or top with your favourite nut butter. Enjoy!

We hope you love this recipe as much as we did.
