Time to Eat Some Chocolate Cake and NOT Gain Weight!

I am reposting a great, quick and easy LOW carb chocolate cake  that I had put up before.  I made these again tonight (makes for 4 small chocolate cakes in mugs).

Dr. Oz had a guest, who spoke about the importance of low sugar in a diet.  Jorge Cruise has great recipes on his site, Jorgecruise.com.  But, he has a recipe for no-sugar, low-calorie chocolate cake.  It is small, it is quick and you cook it in the microwave for 60 seconds.  So, I tried it and even my husband liked it.  I recommend it for those with a sweet or chocolate tooth!

1 minute chocolate cake recipe:

1/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend

1.2 cup almond flour

3 tablespoons unsweetend cocoa powder

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

1/2  teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 egg

2 tablespoons half and half

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, mix, pour 1/4 of mixture into a mug (can make 4 mugs, filled up about 1/5 of each cup because it expands).  Cook mug  in microwave for 60 seconds.

trim a little around the edge of the mug and then pour out onto a plate.  Then put whip cream on top.

Here are pictures of the process.  I would say there is about 2-3g of carbs in this little delicacy for the day!

The pics are posted on my blog:  https://skinny-rules.com/2013/05/28/you-can-have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too/

Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites, Low Carb

My sister in law sent me this recipe for Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites.  They sound delish and perhaps with the Deviled Egg Recipe, could be an addition to the snack items for parties!  When I make them, I will report it.  Just made my regular Cauliflower Based Pizza for my husband and I to eat for lunch and it was delish!  http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/08/the-astonishing-cauliflower-pizza-crust-you-have-to-taste-it-to-believe-it.html

However:  Here is the Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites:  Low in Carbs!!!!!!!!
