Dark Chocolate Cake (vegan)

Really easy and quick cake for dark chocolate lovers! It contains no sugar, but the famous agave syrup, a natural sweetener derived from the Agave plant which grows in Mexico. It is ideal for diabetics; it keeps the blood sugar levels normal. The combination of coconut oil and almond flour makes this a healthy and unique dessert that melts in the mouth!
