Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    5 eggs, separated
    cup agave nectar
    teaspoon celtic sea salt
    1 cup dark chocolate chips
    2 cups walnuts

Directions

From Elana's Pantry---http://www.elanaspantry.com/chocolate-walnut-torte/

In a cuisinart, pulse the chocolate until it becomes a coarse mixture, the consistency of gravel
Pulse in the walnuts, briefly, until they are coarsely chopped -bigger chunks than the chocolate
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks until pale in color, then gradually beat in the agave
In a separate large bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, then beat in the salt
Fold the chocolate-walnut mixture into the egg yolk mixture
Then fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture
Place in a well greased 9-inch springform pan
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, then turn the oven off and leave in for 10 more minutes, until firm to the touch and golden around the edges
Cool in the pan, then serve

Serving Size: I'm not sure exactly what the serving size is, but you can probably get 10-12 servings at least--go skimpy on it because it's rich and packed with good fats--not low fat of course!

Number of Servings: 12
