Almond Chocolate Cake – Naturally Sweetened with Dried Fig Paste

This almond chocolate cake is a refined sugar-free cake sweetened with a dried-fig paste. I really love the mix of almond and fig. It goes perfectly together.

The GL of white sugar is 70 so it means that dried-fig release glucose two times slower than sugar in your body. For diabetic it means that the release is more gradual avoiding high sugar peek that you can have after eating sugar. It does not mean that you can eat lots of dried fig ever. Of course with diabetes, moderation on dried fruits is recommended but using them as an alternative to white sugar for your monthly cake treat is a smart choices.
