Chocolate Cake and Cookies - Food-Nutrition-Health Seminar Series - Dessert Powerhouses


This week we are creating a WHOLE PLANT CHOCOLATE CAKE! Oh, and some cookies too - one recipe to make it all! Enjoy chocolate cake and cookies for break-fast or as snacks throughout the day, knowing that you sweet tooth is being satisfied with whole plants, with plenty of fiber and plenty of nutrients.


Crunchy on the outside - Ooey-Gooey on the inside!


The recipe below uses our dark chocolate sauce ingredients, but you could easily use the apricot/ginger sauce or the tart vanilla sauce for flavor - get creative with your Sweet Sauces and enjoy dessert any time, without dangerous processed sugars or fats.
