Trying to eat healthily but still missing chocolate and cake? This healthy flourless chocolate cake is a nice go-to recipe to have around for when you just have to have chocolate cake.
Healthy Flourless Chocolate Cake
Are you someone that is eating sugar-free? Or maybe you eat dairy and gluten-free? Well, I have a great recipe you HAVE to try! It is for a healthy flourless chocolate cake! It only takes 3 ingredients to make!
This cake is really easy to make. It cooks in the microwave in one minute and 30 seconds. Or in the oven for about 10 minutes. What gives this cake its slightly sweet flavor is the ripe banana. So be sure to use a really ripe one and not one that is more on the green side.
It is super moist too and not at all dry like some other cakes. While I find this cake is sweet enough on its own, if you are someone that needs things a little sweeter and don’t mind a little sugar, I also have the chocolate glaze recipe included.
Other than the ingredients it takes to make this flourless chocolate cake, you will also need a blender, coffee mug or 4-inch ramekin and oil. The oil is simply for lightly greasing the dish you will cook the cake in. I used coconut oil.
