Its now January, the month where nearly everyone tries to turn over a new leaf and become fit and healthy. By coincidence we are falling in line with this tradition this year and joining a transformation class with John Neill Dedicated Fitness. We love cake and baked treats so in order to help both ourselves, and our readers if you’re also trying to eat a bit healthier this year we are going to write some healthier alternatives to some treats. We are being sensible with our recipes, we’re not going to suggest you eat anything which tastes similar to hamster food and we’re not writing recipes for anything we wouldn’t happily eat ourselves. If you’re not on any kind of diet this year fear not, we’re not going to stop writing our normal recipes too. We loved writing this recipe for No-Bake Skinny Chocolate Fudge Cake.
The best bit of this recipe is that its low sugar, low in bad fats AND no-bake! What could be simpler! Not to be eaten every day if you’re on a specific fitness programme or diet but great for those chocolate cravings. Its main ingredient is coconut butter which has countless benefits. We recommend using virgin coconut butter as it retains its wonderful coconut flavour and scent. We have also added an optional ingredient of protein powder. Its a great recipe to combine your protein powder in if you are working out.
