    I rlly dont like the new background music- dont add it. BA videos was so much more relaxing and authentic without some acoustics behind it

    Unless you have life threatening allergy to dairy and/or gluten; otherwise sugar does a lot more harm than those ingredients. This cake is as unhealthy as any other typical cakes.

            What I find odd about using coconut oil instead of butter in baking is that the coconut oil ends up making a more buttery baked good than butter does. I make cookies that use coconut oil and they’re insanely buttery. More so than if I’d used butter.

                                If you use chocolate that has corn syrup, then it's not kosher for passover, right?

                                        RoseVampireGirl4 You could look for a flourless chocolate cake recipe instead. It’s similar to this, but without coconuts.

                                                  Archana Yadav you could possibly swap the eggs for aquafaba and then increase the coconut oil a bit to compensate for the loss of fat in the egg yolk? The egg is acting as a binder and volumizer here, so I don’t think a flax egg would work.

                                                            Can you use almond flour or almond meal instead of the ground up almonds?

                                                              The measurements would be different, but it should work if you measure by weight. Essentially you're creating a coarse almond flour by grinding the almonds; I'd recommend almond meal over almond flour since flour won't have the right mouth-feel in the finished product. I tested this recipe on my channel a few weeks ago and included measurements by weight in case it's helpful!

You have an audience outside of the US that doesn't use ounces or Fahrenheit (I'm from Australia).
