Yes, it exists. Seriously.
Wait, it gets better.
It's only FOUR ingredients.
I know, I dove in not knowing what the results would be, but they were SO good I had to share with you.
You know I love finding healthy but delicious snack and meal options, and my go-to fruit and protein mixes are made by me daily, but a dessert I can bring to a gathering that doesn't have SUGAR added? This is gold.
I was charged with bringing a 'chocolate-y dessert' to yesterday's Thanksgiving gathering, so I went on the hunt to find a healthy alternative. The result was beyond what I could have hoped for.
Even the gourmet chef at the table complimented it! (Not tooting my own horn, all the kudos goes to the person who came up with the recipe-- link below.)
1. Dates 2cups, blended into a paste (the only challenge-- you could also buy date paste-- link below)
2. Cocoa powder 6Tbsp
3. Baking powder 2tsp
4. Eggs 3 large
Blend it all together, pour in springform pan, back 30min at 350. THAT'S IT.
Optional frosting made with maple syrup (the only added sugar, and it is optional and only 3Tbsp for the whole topping-- you could use less, too), cacao powder (filled with nutrients), and coconut oil.
Full tasted like a fudge-y flourless chocolate cake. Amazing.
This is the recipe here.
If you make it, let me know here or tag me in a post @be.bykate!
Photo? No. I was so excited to bring it to the gathering, I completely forgot! But here's the gorgeous table setting at our dear friend's home. See more about her stunning styling here.
