Healthy Black Forest Cake

Healthy Black Forest Cake

Black forest cake is one of my favorite desserts and I’ve been constantly craving it, no thanks to my best friend. Here is a recipe for a healthy black forest cake I made the other night and it’s filled with lots of protein from… black beans!

Healthy Black Forest Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2tbsp almond flour
  • 2tbsp almond milk
  • agave nectar (or other sweetener) to taste
  • a pinch of salt
  • pinch of baking soda

Directions:

  1. Blend all together until batter is smooth.
  2. Pour into a greased mug
  3. Cover with saran wrap (if you don’t, watch out for an explosion in your microwave!).
  4. Microwave for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Take out of mug and cut the cake into thin layers.
  6. Layer with cherry filling, whipped cream and enjoy!

For the filling:

You can either use fresh or frozen cherries and heat up in a small pot with sweetener of your choice OR use canned cherry filling (although this will probably be high in sugar and add extra calories).

For the whipped cream:

Beat your own with full-fat cream or you can be lazy like me and use full-fat whipped cream from the spray cans. Do not use fat-free because it’s filled with sugars and chemicals to make up for all that fat.
