3 tablespoons walnuts, roughly chopped

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 170 °C. Grease the inside of the slice tin or line it with parchment paper.

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk with a spoon. Add coconut oil and almond milk. Stir the batter until smooth with an electric whisk or an eggbeater. Add a bit more almond milk if too doughy and stir again.

Add walnuts and pieces of chocolate and stir the batter with a spoon or a dough scraper. 

Pour the batter into the prepared slice tin and smooth down the top. 

Bake for 22-28 minutes or until there is no batter sticking to a toothpick that’s inserted in the centre of the cake. 

 

Let the cake cool in the pan before slicing.
