1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1.5 cups oat flour

3/4 cup almond flour (ground up fresh or from a bag)

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt (always love sea salt)

FROSTING

1 cup plain soymilk

1/3 cup coconut milk (may use lite coconut milk)

1 1/4 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water until smooth

2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

(optional) 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

In a medium saucepan, mix the milks, sugar, and vanilla together. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens.
