WW Chocolate Chickpea Cake

September 25, 2022

This recipe was suggested by Danielle Takoko at the Healthy Lifestyle Awards and she said it was her “go to” sweet thing. I got her permission to post this recipe. She said it used to be on the WW App but she can no longer find it either.

Oh my. I tried making the Dark Chocolate Chickpea Cookies yesterday and they were delicious. Just wish they would have stayed crunchy, but I gather thats the chickpeas themselves.

Anyway, she posted the recipe with the cake today and I knew instantly that I had to try this.

What can I say – WOW WOW WOW! This is so good I had to walk away from it. Super moist – almost like a brownie and yet so tasty. My first mouthful I thought, hmmm nice, then the second, yes I think I like it. By the third, I was done for! YUM!

To make it even better, it is GLUTEN FREE too!
