Chocolate comes from cacao, cacao comes from a tree, which makes it a plant. Therefore chocolate counts as a salad. The end.
Yeh, I think we all read that one ever so often on various social media. Not an excuse to go all chocolate munchies though! There’s some truth to it However. Chocolate isn’t bad. At least, dark chocolate isn’t. I eat a chocolate a day. Every evening. No skipz. With my cup of tea. A 70% cacao (the absolute minimum percentage) and sugarfree piece from Galler. The. Best. Chocolate. I mean, I am a woman. And us girls need a little sweetness to keep us going.
Anyhow, if I do get to pick an absolute favorite chocolate cheat crave, it is moeulleux (chocolate fondant or chocolate lava cake). Ya know. That cake. Where chocolate runs out once you put your spoon inside. Delish! But it’s a chocolate BOMB that has got so many dang calories and sweetness in it you gain weight and lose teeth just by looking at it. It’s a fat-ass cake for sure, but I love it!

You’ll need (makes two cupcakes, 100kcal p/cake)

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Meanwhile combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Then pour the cake batter into your cupcake molds.
Bake in the oven for 12 to 14 minutes. Being super careful not to over bake them.
Now drizzle or top them with desired topping. Like melted chocolate, or like in the cupcakes pictured above: with blueberries. (and I may or may not drizzled some agave syrup on top afterwards) Njam.
