Made with ingredients like organic almond flour, light coconut milk, and GoodSam’s ethically sourced chocolate chips (which are sweetened with keto-friendly allulose), this holiday breakfast loaf cake recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, and low in sugar.

Yield: 1 8×8” cake

Preheat oven to 350℉. Line an 8×8” baking dish with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil.
