Chia Seed Chocolate Cake

Chia Seed Chocolate Cake | Mr Vitamins
Here's a healthy recipe for a delicious chocolate cake. I borrowed the recipe from my friend's mother's book ‘gluten free grain free, food we love’ by Tania Hubbard. It’s so yummy and  not too sweet. The chia seeds give it a nice texture and a bit of fibre, and it’s super easy to make!
