Oh goodness me. If you had told me when I first started eating clean, that I would be able to occasionally enjoy a chocolate molten cake, I would have looked at you with my eyes crossed. I just won’t have believed it. But here it is! In living color. And I can sum it up on one word…. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!
I found the recipe a clean eating web site that has since closed down. However, with a little research, I found that it’s also possible that this recipe originally came from Clean Eating Magazine. So I’m not sure who to give the credit to.
I did make a few minor changes though (don’t I always?). So here’s my version. I cut down on the fat and calories, and added some extra vanilla for flavor. I also substituted honey for the sugar.
