Oh my god, I can't wait to share this amazing recipe with you guys! It contains no added sugar, butter or oil!
If you love chocolate cakes - who doesn't, duh - but recently had to ban them from your diet, because they usually contain way too many calories, this is the perfect alternative for you. Whaaat? Is it even possible to make a baked recipe with no added sugar? Of course! There are lots of natural ways to sweeten your dish.
The best way to describe this cake, is that it tastes like a fudgy chocolate muffin with a hint of banana. Whenever the craving for something chocolatey is taking over, I bust out this recipe. And my husband absolutely loves it. Literally 10 minutes after I shot the video for the recipe, the cake was gone. I'm not joking.
The thing I love most about this cake, is that it tastes so "naughty", but it's actually a healthier alternative.
Enough of the bla-bla. Here's the recipe!
- 3 overripe bananas
- 100g yogurt (I used low fat yogurt, but you don't have to)
- 90g honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 15g smooth peanut butter
- 1 whole egg
- 150g white flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- a pinch of baking powder
- 70g chocolate chips
- optional: 25g chocolate protein powder
Macros per slice (1/8)
Start by preheating the oven to 350F/180C. Then mash the bananas. In a large mixing bowl, mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, honey, vanilla extract and peanut butter together, until smooth (for about 5 minutes).
Add the egg and mix again. Now add flour, protein powder, cocoa powder and baking soda to the mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
Finally add the chocolate chips and fold them in. Pour the cake batter into a cake tin. Top the cake, if you like, with whatever you fancy.
Bake for approximately 35 minutes and let it cool down for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy this fudgyness.
