A healthy and low fat chocolate cake recipe with no eggs, dairy, or oil required.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 25 minutes
Yield 8 - 9 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spelt, white, or gf ap flour
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp each: baking soda and salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar of choice or xylitol
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional
  • 1/4 cup yogurt (I like nondairy)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup almond butter, peanut butter, OR allergy-friendly sub - For a nut-free cake, try my Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease an 8-in square or round pan. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, optional chips, and sweetener, and stir very well. (If your nut butter is not stir-able, gently heat it until stir-able.) In a new bowl, whisk together the nut butter, yogurt, water, and vanilla. Pour wet into dry and stir until just combined (don’t over-mix), then pour into the greased pan. Bake 25 minutes or until batter has risen and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out mostly clean. (I like to take it out when it’s still a little undercooked, let it cool, and then set in the fridge overnight. This prevents overcooking, and the cake will still firm up nicely as it sits.) If you can wait, I highly recommend not taking a taste until the next day… this cake is so much richer and sweeter after sitting for a day. Trust me!
