For the love of chocolate: Waist-watcher’s molten chocolate cake. Valentine’s special.

Re-blogging one of my posts in honor of Valentine’s day-chocoholics can rejoice knowing that polyphenols, powerful antioxidants in dark chocolate have been linked with improved cognitive function, among other health benefits- so you can eat your chocolate and have it too!!!

For the love of chocolate! With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I have had visions of chocolate laden desserts dancing in my head for several days now. Yes, I may be a dietitian, but that does not make me immune to the allure of chocolate, especially the molten variety such as a chocolate sauce or ganache. There is something about the rich, silken, texture of chocolate that makes it irresistible, but such desserts are inevitably as rich in calories as they are in appearance, so the Registered Dietitian in me has been hard at work creating a dessert that simply looks decadent, but is not! The featured recipe has less than half the butter, and two-thirds of the sugar in the original recipe, but tastes just as sinfully delicious. Warning: The batter may get consumed before it makes its way into the oven!
