You Can Eat Anything You Want.... but NOT THAT! {Low Everything & Something Free Chocolate Cake Recipe}

On our You Can Eat Anything You Want.... but NOT THAT Diet {as we like to call it} they offered up a diet "brownie" recipe made with ingredients that had to be imported from Mars.... my Gluten Free, Vegan, Health Conscious, Nutritionist friends out there are cringing I'm sure.... but this is new ground in Chez Webb.... We have an altar of butter we bow to every morning.... or at least we did until it started to bow under the pressure of our weight.  So, we are trying.  And what looked like the PERFECT diet is day by day removing any semblance of our former eating "style" but alas some changes needed to be made.  Now, don't get me wrong.... this isn't going to become Heidi's Diet Blog.  But, if I find a few yummy "diet" foods along the way, I will share them.  And I may tweak a few of my tried & true to see how the fare with no butter for instance.... so, don't get skerred.  I'm still here.  Anyhow, the "brownie" was NOT a brownie but it is pretty yummy cake :)

"Fat Loss" Chocolate Cake

1 cup evaporated cane juice
1 cup 100% whole wheat flour
1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 TBSP 60% cocoa semi-sweet chocolate chips {I used Ghirardelli}
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/3 cup egg whites
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 TBSP soy milk
1 tsp MADAGASCAR Vanilla

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside; put all the wet ingredients in your mixer bowl and mix well.  Once mixed add the dry ingredients and continue until mixed well.
Spray your 8 x 8 pan {I used Crisco butter flavored.... it smells like movie theater popcorn, yum} and pour your batter into prepared pan top with approximately 1 TBSP each of the chocolate chips and pecans :)

  3. Diet brownie is really awesome idea! They sound delicious too!

    1. I need to figure out how to tweak so it's more brownie-ish and less cak like.... although I'm not complainin' it is a yummy cake!

  4. Good call. Looking forward to any other good "diet" recipes that you find (particularly of the cakey bakey variety!). Dieting v cakes. Plain unfair!

    1. Just call me the whole wheat baker! Although next week is Easter.... there's no diet baking for THAT!
