A couple of days ago we received a question from Jenni (chocolate lover) on how to mix living a healthy lifestyle with loving chocolate and sweets. She confessed falling into temptation for not only chocolate but also donuts and ice-cream or frozen yoghurt. We get it! Which is why we’ve looked up 5 tastes of guilt free chocolate heaven to share with her and all you Fit Girls looking to spoil yourself with a healthy treat!
1. Flour-less chocolate cake
-6 ounces 70-percent dark chocolate
-1 tablespoon orange zest
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 overripe bananas
-1/4 cup roasted sweet potato
-1/4 cup honey
-1 whole egg
-3 egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place 8 (4-ounce) custard cups on a large baking sheet. Spray each with cooking spray and set aside.
Combine chocolate, orange zest, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl over hot boiling water. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted.
Puree bananas, sweet potato, and honey until smooth.
Remove the melted chocolate from heat and fold it over banana puree and egg. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until a soft peak.
Slowly fold egg whites into chocolate mixture.
Spoon mix into ramekins, filling them almost to the top.
Bake for approximately 6 to 7 minutes, remove, and serve. The center of each cake should be soft and warm. Garnish with extra orange zest if you like.
