Oatmeal Chocolate Cake Recipe (completely GUILT-FREE)
Oatmeal Chocolate Cake Recipe
Today I'm going to show you how to make healthy oatmeal cake with chocolate.
This guilt-free cake is full good for you ingredients, such as honey and cocoa powder. Also, this healthy chocolate cake is so easy to make, it's gluten-free and sugar-free.
Here's what I cover in this video:
First, we're going to make the cake batter. Instead of sugar and plain flour, we're using honey and oatmeal.
Next, I'm going to show you how to make dark chocolate ganache. All you have to do is to pour the hot cream over the chocolate, and gently stir until it melts.
At the end you'll have oatmeal cake covered with rich and smooth chocolate ganache.
This healthy cake is so delicious and still it's guilt free dessert you can eat even for breakfast.
As usual I suggest you 3 different ways how you can serve this cake and bring it to a next level. First, and definitely my favorite, is mixed berry sauce. It tastes so good with the chocolate ganache. Next, is honey glazed walnuts. You can have these bad boys as a healthy snack too. And last, peanut butter whipped cream. It's light, but still has that peanut butter flavor, which works so good with the chocolate.
