Flourless "sugarless" chocolate cake- a baking success

Getting back into the swing of healthy eating, slowly easing back into running, and embracing a routine one again.

Today I give you cake. Chocolate cake. Flourless sugarless chocolate cake. You could make this cake much healthier by swapping out the butter for bananas or applesauce - but with my baking skills (or lack there of) I decided to follow the recipe step by step. Next week i will sub out all that butter for bananas and see what we get !

I found this recipe when i was looking up sugar free baking for a friend with diabetes. It has nine ingredients you throw them all into the food processor, turn it on, throw it in a cake pan (or muffin tin) and pop it in the oven- does it get any easier?

Instead of flour you use ground pecans, and instead of sugar I used truvia.

It was light- great texture- and just a touch of sweet. I paired it with some whipped cream and strawberries for a little extra sweetness and it was chocolate sweet heaven.

If I can bake it.... So can you!
Chocolate cake for the win!

Don't worry I've been doing some running to balance out the eating - three humid miles this morning and felt better than last week. No swelling or ankle pain either.
