Not much is better than chocolate souffles and this guilt free option is perfect. It’s only 6 SmartPoints and is similar to a molten cake.
My husband, who is a huge supporter of my passions and food – more on that another day – has a love of all things chocolate.
He loves sweets and desserts, in general, actually. And to be fair, so do I. Since joining Weight Watchers, however, it’s been hard to enjoy a chocolate dessert that isn’t tons of SmartPoints.
We were at my sister’s house the other weekend and I was mentioning trying to lighten up a chocolate dish for Valentine’s Day.
She then dropped her trusty cookbook (she has a few that are must haves) on the table and pointed to what she lovingly refers to as Sexual Chocolate (the inspiration for this recipe).
I knew right then and there that I had to find a way to lighten that recipe up. It could be done – I just had to figure out how. If you are interested in a fudge brownie, this recipe is fabulous.
Luckily, changing out a few key ingredients (using Stevia for sugar and cutting the butter in half), I think I have created a healthier alternative to her Sexual Chocolate. I loved how these turned out.
They are gooey, and chocolatey, and just about perfect. One note…I cooked mine a bit too long so they aren’t as molten in the middle as I wanted, but they still tasted amazing.
Now, I know that these are 6 SmartPoints (the original recipe was 11), but they are worth it. And just think – you indulge on the day of love. It’s ok to do that.
What is your favorite chocolate dessert?
- 4 Tablespoons light butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 9 packets Stevia leaf herbal extract
- 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Melt the chocolate and butter
- Microwave the chocolate alone on 50% for 2 minutes. Stir and add in the butter. Microwave an additional 1 minute on 50%.
Make the batter
- Beat the eggs, vanilla, sat, and stevia in a stand mixer, about 5 minutes. Combine the chocolate and butter mixture with the egg mixture. Stir to combine. Sprinkle the flour over the combined mixture. Fold to combine completely.
- Pour the batter into 8 prepared ramekins and bake for about 12 to 13 minutes, until the cakes have puffed about an inch above the ramekins.
