Warning: The following is for hard-core chocolate lovers.
My Grain-Free Bitter Chocolate for One was a hit. Who knew that so many people enjoyed bitter chocolate?
The only problem is, how can I make and eat a cake when I am in hurry or need a snack traveling?
Solution: make mini cakes (aka cookies) ahead of time!
~These pillowy clouds of chocolate are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, oil-free, and, of course, sugar-free!
Serves 1, but feel free to double, triple or quadruple the recipe as needed.
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 Tablespoons of squash puree, like pumpkin, sweet potato, or butternut squash
- splash of vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- Optional: unsweetened chocolate chunks, nuts, coconut, mint extract, fruit pieces
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Do you ever get intense chocolate cravings?
I find that I always crave straight-up unsweetened chocolate when I am out of town. These cookies would be a great thing to pack for trips!
