Healthy Chocolate Chip Marble Cake

 

Healthy High Protein Chocolate Chip Marble Cake Bars made using whole food ingredients and PEScience protein powder.

 


 

After a long Sunday, my boyfriend and I decided to take it easy and order a pizza for dinner. I know, I know, it goes against like everything I stand for. But pizza is life and everyone deserves it every now and then! ­čśë

 

So I’m ordering pizza online from Dominos when I see the most delicious looking marble cookie brownies being advertised for dessert. I knew instantly what my next baking venture would be. Today I set out to make a healthy version of those brownies. Instead, my “brownies” came out looking more like “cake” which is totally fine because who doesn’t love cake??

 

 

I used PEScience Frosted Chocolate Cupcake in this recipe and it made these cake bars extra sweet without adding all the extra sugar! Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at www.pescience.com

Healthy Chocolate Chip Marble Cake Bars

A healthy decadent chocolate chip marble cake made using whole food ingredients and protein powder!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c brown rice flour or gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 c finely ground almond flour
  • 2 tbsp Truvia or coconut sugar
  • 32g protein powder (I used PEScience Frosted Chocolate Cupcake 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare an 8x8" pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the flours, Truvia, baking soda and powder into a mixing bowl and stir until combined. Pour the flour mix into a mixer. Add the egg, egg yolk, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and 1/4 cup applesauce. Beat until everything is incorporated and you have a thick batter. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the batter, fold in chocolate chips and set a side.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, protein powder and 1/4 cup applesauce to the remaining batter and beat until smooth. Spread chocolate batter into the bottom of the prepared pan using a rubber spatula (it helps if you wet it slightly first to prevent sticking).
  4. Use a cookie scoop to drop dollops of the chocolate chip batter over the chocolate layer until you have used it all. Mine was 5 scoops. Use a knife to swirl the batters together.
  5. Bake for 17-19 minutes.
  6. Let cool before cutting into 9 bars and serving.

Healthy Triple Peanut Butter Cake

I just wish everyday could be Sunday. It’s always so peaceful–a perfect day for baking and lounging around and eating what you’ve baked. I’ve probably done more of the lounging around and eating part.

 

My boyfriend often asks me if I get sick of always making peanut butter flavored desserts and I reply with “What are you crazy man? Peanut Butter is life!” And then I don’t talk to him for the rest of the day! He clearly doesn’t know me at all. I never get sick of peanut butter. ­čśŤ


 

To show my boyfriend how not sick of peanut butter I am, I made a Triple Peanut Butter Cake using the Peanut Butter Frosting I posted yesterday.

 

 

Peanut butter cake layered with peanut butter Greek yogurt frosting and then topped with more frosting and peanut butter and chocolate chips.

 

I used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup protein powder. You can get 30% OFF using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website.

Batter should be very thick. Press 3/4 of the batter evenly into the bottom of the pan using your fingertips. NOTE: Wet your fingertips first to prevent sticking.

  4. Using a blender or food processor, blend together all cheesecake filling ingredients until smooth. Pour cheesecake filling over cinnamon filing layer. Press remaining cinnamon roll dough over cheesecake layer (there won't be enough dough to completely cover the cheesecake and that's okay).

Hello November. The news on the street is that pumpkin is out and peppermint is in. Well, forget that! I’m still not over pumpkin.

 

PUMPKIN is LIFE!

Healthy Banana Gingerbread Cake

Before using up your extra ripe bananas on plain old banana bread, try adding a little spice and a little molasses to have the ultimate banana-gingerbread experience!

 

Molasses is one of my favorite┬ásugars to work with because of┬áhow distinct the flavor is. Unlike honey or agave, molasses is very potent and can always be detected when used in a recipe. It’s mid-October so it’s totally cool that I’m transitioning from pumpkin to gingerbread flavored desserts, right? I just couldn’t wait! I love the Holiday Season and I believe it Starts October 1st!

The Best Ever Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Cake

Although it’s still August, I’m considering today my own official first day of Fall for a┬ácouple of┬áreasons:

  1. The weather made a drastic change today. There was a crisp chill in the air with a light breeze and a few clouds (A.K.A. Fall in Los Angeles).
  2. I made my first pumpkin treat of the season so if that doesn’t qualify, then I don’t know what does.

Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache

I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to figure out┬ánew ways to use up my ripe bananas. Like any normal┬áperson, I go to the grocery store every single day and I almost never leave┬áthere without a handle of bananas; thus creating an over whelming amount of yellow fruit in my kitchen.

Instead of making banana bread with those spotted bananas, try making this super moist {but not too dense} peanut butter banana cake with chocolate ganache.
