During the holidays we all want to feel cozy and enjoy some quality time with our families sharing a home cooked meal. The problem is that most of the times, we get a little carried away with our favorite Christmas treats…
Trust me, I know what that feels like! I used to spend my holidays in Italy feeding myself with Panettone and mascarpone cream, ending up feeling sick and munching on carrot sticks to get back in shape :/
To give this healthy chocolate cake a bit of a festive twist, I decided to bake it in a gingerbread man mold and to give it a snowy effect by dusting the mold (previously greased with coconut oil) with a sprinkle of rice flour.
Whether you are on a gluten free diet or you simply want to eat gluten free, this little guy will make you drool.
He has a dark chocolate body, an apricot jam heart and some delicious matcha green tea buttons…
What more can you ask for??!!
