Chocolate Breakfast Cake


The hardest part of my weight loss journey is my sweet tooth. When I first started this journey. I didn’t educate myself and just really went in without any real plans. I thought that just because I was eating fruit that I was eating healthy and boy was I wrong. I quickly learned that eating a whole pineapple wasn’t as healthy as I thought and learned that all fruit is not created equal. Since I reached my weight loss journey. I’m slowly started back incorporating the food that I love but of course a healthier alternative. As you guys know, I love to bake and cook. I’m the cupcakes for breakfast type of person hence this recipe. As much as I love baking I know that all purchase regular flour isn’t the healthiest. So I researched and learned how to make oats flour at home which has truly been a life saver. I’ve made everything from vegan pancakes to crepes and the recipes come out amazing each time.
I was in my kitchen and I wanted to create a super moist chocolate cake that is a healthier alternative that I could have any time of the day. I researched and researched and finally developed this recipe. I so surprised at how moist this cake turned out. Did I mention that it has zucchini in it? It’s so good that you forget that it’s healthy for you.
