I have been on a health and fitness journey for more than two years now, and it’s not easy. It’s specially hard because I love eating yummy food. Who doesn’t? But I don’t like to deny myself every single craving. Why should I? Instead, I look for a healthy alternative, like this heavenly chocolate cake.

Most of my cravings have to do with chocolate, nothing new here. But the problem is that store-bought candy bars, cookies, cakes, and muffins are anything but healthy. Those are all processed food full of sugar, trans fats and additives. My body doesn’t need that!
So what I do is cook up something sweet, yummy, and nutritious at home. This way, I make sure it contains only wholesome ingredients and the least amount of sugar possible. Believe me, you won’t be missing those store-bought muffins.
Let’s get cooking!
Easy Healthy Quick And Yummy Chocolate Cake
I have to confess I don’t like spending too much time in the kitchen, and I also can’t bake to save my life. That means I had to find a chocolate cake recipe that didn’t take too long and that didn’t involve an oven. Luckily for me, such a thing really does exist!
I found several versions of this recipe, so I played around with it until I came up with one that I liked.
- 1 banana (the spottier, the better)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of milk or almond milk
- 1/4 oatmeal flour
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
Throw all the ingredients into the blender, except the butter. Blend everything until it’s nice and smooth. Grease a mold. It could be a bowl, a cup, or any deep microwable dish. Then, pour the mixture into the mold and pop it in the microwave. Depending on the power, it could take from a minute to three minutes to cook. What I do is cook it for a minute, take it out, check it, and cook it for another minute or so. When the mixture is all cooked, that’s it. You’ve got yourself your very own little chocolate cake!
Isn’t that easy? The best thing of all is that you can eat without feeling guilty because it’s made of nutritious ingredients. What’s more, you could make this cake in the time it takes you to read this post. How about that? It’s true that you can have your cake and eat it too.
