Kidney Bean Chocolate Cake Recipe – Healthy Chocolate Cake

Healthy kidney bean chocolate cake? That might sound a little weird, but actually tastes super delicious! This healthy chocolate cake will convince everybody.

Who doesn’t like chocolate cake? Generally the only problem with the conventional chocolate cake is the extremely high fat content, which makes it really high in calories. Clearly chocolate is also healthy but not in such large quantities. So today I want to introduce you to one of my absolute favorite recipes: my kidney bean cake.

  1. This sounds good. I have all ingredients but the almond milk. Can I substitute with semi skimmed milk? I also have some kefir in the freezer. Thanks.
