Raw Chocolate Peach Cake

Dessert | September 24, 2014 | By

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to quit sugar. The first step was to quit all and any kinds of desserts in order to stop my addiction (yes, you could say it was an addiction since to me lunch was not lunch if it wasn’t followed by some kind of dessert). I now allow myself to have some dessert but still try to avoid refined sugar whenever possible. One way to do this is through raw desserts. Yes, I know, they contain nuts which are full of calories, but they are still healthier than regular desserts. With loads of peaches in my pantry, I went on a hunt for a delicious raw peach cake recipe and came across this perfect one.
