High Fiber Chocolate Cake with a Protein Punch

Submitted by: JSIMMON1

Introduction

I know this is going to sound incredibly weird but this recipe makes a tasty cake using beans, eggs, chocolate and baking soda - you can add a little sweetener if you wish but as I have radically cut back processed sugars in my diet I find it perfect with just the sweetness of the semisweet chocolate. Sorry for the metric measurements - I got this from Pinterest and since the beans I used had started as dry beans, I used my food scale. I'm guessing that 200g is close to what you would get if you drained a can of beans.

Ingredients

    200 grams ** of beans, drained - see note
    100 grams ** semi-sweet chocolate (Baker's makes a version that is sold by the baking chocolate that is conveniently wrapped in 25 gram blocks)
    2 eggs
    1/2 tsp baking soda

    ** 100 grams is about 3.5 ounces or a little less than a cup.

Tips

The nutrition info is based on navy beans but other types of white beans (maybe others as well) would probably work.

Directions

Preheat oven to 325F. Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave in 15 second increments until smooth. Let cool while you preceed. Puree cooked or canned and drained beans in food processor with eggs until no chunks of "skins" are visible (you may have to add a tablespoon or two of water if your beans are not damp when you start). Add melted chocolate and baking soda and blend. Pour into 8 in round cake pan that has been sprayed with Pam or other baking spray and bake for ~30 minutes.

Serving Size: Nutrition info is for 1/8th of cake - I cut into 12 servings so that I can get a chocolate hit for 75 cals.
