Instant Pot Guilt Free Chocolate Cake

Servings: 6
Author: Brittany Williams


For the cake

  • 8 ounces cooked black beans rinsed and drained (I make mine in the Instant Pot)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 3 tablespoons Cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

For the glaze

  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil


  • Place all of the ingredients for the cake in a high powered blender or a food processor and process until everything is one smooth consistency.
  • Grease your stainless steel cake pan. Add the batter to your pan and place the lid on top.
  • Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot. Set your cake pan inside of the pot on top of the trivot. Using the display panel program your pot using the MANUAL setting, +/- 45 minutes.
  • When the time is up quickly release the pressure. While you wait make the glaze by microwaving the coconut oil and dairy free chocolate chips for 45 seconds. Stir.
  • Wait 5 minutes for the cake to cool, then transfer to a plate and pour glaze over the top. Enjoy!


Note: To make black beans in your Instant Pot soak for four hours or over night. Rinse and drain. Place beans in your Instant Pot and barely cover with water. MANUAL for 12 minutes. When the time is up let the pot naturally release the pressure, about 25 minutes.
