Recipe: Moist Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Sauce

Love your heart with chocolate, which has a positive impact on mood, blood pressure and blood vessels. The chickpeas in this cake make it rich and moist. It’s also great for those who want to avoid wheat flour. The berry sauce seeps into the chocolate quickly. Delicious!
