Last night after a taco salad for dinner, I was having a major craving for chocolate. Having struggled through 40 minutes on the airdyne bike at the gym, I didn’t want to totally negate my workout.
Blogger recipes to the rescue! I was hoping for a microwaveable, molten-type chocolate cake recipe. I know I’ve seen one before. After checking out Katie’s single lady cupcakes and Deb’s protein muffins, I decided on trying the combination below.
As you can see, I always end up changing the original recipes depending on what I find in the pantry or what I think the recipe needs once I start. It was also my first experience using liquid stevia – I tried 3 drops. Peanut flour was one of the substitutions listed on Deb’s recipe, so I used chocolate PB2.
All mixed up and ready to go!
After 3 minutes in the microwave I added a few chocolate chips on top.
Although it puffed 3/4 of the way up the bowl, once it cooled it flattened back down again.
I think I changed too many components. Maybe more stevia next time. Maybe a different flour (oat or pastry). It definitely had some chocolate flavor and was filling enough to satisfy my craving.
Didn’t someone post a healthy molten cake recipe? I’m on the hunt for it!
