A Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Paleo, AND Keto Chocolate Cake
I am 100% dairy-free. No butter, no ghee, no sheep’s milk, no goat’s cheese. Zero dairy.
At first, it was hard. I didn’t realize how much I relied on cheese, butter, yogurt, and milk to fill my body. Then, I found replacements and substitutes and it got easier.
Now? I rarely miss dairy.
So, when I created this keto coconut flour chocolate cake recipe, I had to make it dairy-free (no butter) and come up with a frosting that was also dairy-free (no butter, no cream cheese).
It’s also nut-free — so those of you with nut allergies or sensitivities can enjoy every bite of this nut-free keto chocolate cake without fear!
This keto coconut flour chocolate cake cake is also gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, and totally paleo, too!
I love making my recipes as allergy-friendly as possible for my readers. I sure hope you enjoy!

That’s right — this nut-free keto chocolate cake is made in the blender. You’ll have cakes baking within 10 minutes with this fast and easy method.
I highly recommend investing in a high-speed blender if you don’t have one — I looooooove my BlendTec and it makes the smooooothest cake batters.
I chose coconut flour for this keto chocolate cake because it’s low in carbs, high in fiber, and more allergy-friendly than other keto and paleo flours. (<– Save 10% on my favorite coconut flour with my discount code NOURISHING.)

Keto Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake + Avocado Chocolate Frosting FAQs
I can’t have coconut. Is there a substitute?
I’ve made this cake as allergy-friendly as possible. Because coconut flour requires more moisture than nut flours or gluten-free flours, I’ve worked with that for this recipe. It’s a coconut flour recipe; plain and simple.
Do I have to use a keto sweetener?
Nope! If you don’t like using keto sweeteners, replace the Dietz Sweet with an equal amount of another granulated sweetener. Coconut sugar is my pick!
What can I sub for the avocado in the frosting?
If you can handle dairy, feel free to make your favorite chocolate buttercream or cream cheese frosting. You could experiment with palm shortening, but I don’t have a specific recipe for that.
I don’t have 6-inch cake pans. What can I use instead?
If you’re not looking to make a layer cake, simply bake in a 9×13 glass pan and frost like a sheet cake. Two 9-inch round cake pans can also be used, but you may bake them longer.
