Fitness Chocolate Cake: Healthy Sugar-free and Gluten-free Sweet Recipe With Extra Protein

Listen to this article

We can play with the recipe by changing the “flours” so that it is completely grain-free, replacing the oats with the same amount of the chosen ground nut, although we recommend combining the almond and hazelnut to give it that tastier flavor that combines so well with cocoa. Instead of sugar-free dark chocolate we could add walnuts or another dried fruit in pieces, or replace the beans with another cooked legume.

How to make fitness chocolate cake?

Difficulty: Easy

  • Total time- 1 hour.
  • Elaboration- 15m.
  • Cooking- 45m.

Preheat the oven to 170º C with air or 180º C with heat up and down. Line a rectangular mold about 20-23 cm long with non-stick paper. The smaller it is, the higher it will be, and vice versa.

Add the rest of the dry ingredients and stir with a whisk until well integrated and there are no dry lumps. Add a portion of unsweetened dark chocolate chips or chopped chocolate, optional, and pour into the mold. If you want, add more chocolate on top, or organic fruits.

Bake for 40-45 minutes , until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean. Wait a little before unmolding and cooling completely on a rack.

What to Accompany the Fitness Chocolate Cake With?

We recommend accompanying this chocolate cake with a coffee, infusion or tea, a glass of fresh milk or vegetable drink, and you can complete your intake with a portion of thick and creamy natural yogurt and berries, mango, orange or tangerine, which combine very well with the intensity of the cocoa.

Bottom Line.

Fitness chocolate cake offers a delicious and guilt-free alternative for indulging in a sweet treat while staying on track with health and fitness goals. By incorporating healthier ingredients and reducing the amount of sugar and fat, this dessert option provides a satisfying way to satisfy cravings without derailing progress. With a balance of flavor and nutrition, fitness chocolate cake proves that enjoying dessert can still align with a healthy lifestyle.
