Bump! Anyone know Cal's/serving?

And carbs?? Wish when people post recipies they would post nutritional values... No sense getting excited only to find out too much of something.

All you have to do is make it a "recipe" by scanning each individual item and creating a serving size to have the app break it down for you.... I have been making this for years - everyone loves it - but I have not made it since I have been using the app.

What SIZE serving? I am REALLY trying to use integrity and discipline with this calorie count!!!

I used MFP and plugged in recipe:

133 calories, 18 carbs, 6 fat, 3 protein, 2 fiber and 11 sugar

12 servings

Hope this helps.

thank you thank you! sorry - I was just sharing a recipe. I will include more information on the next one ohwell

This sounds interesting and being gluten-free means I can eat it too happy

I think I will have to make it when hubby isn't around, if he sees chickpeas going in it I am not sure he will try it.

Very interesting...will keep this one in mind and maybe make for Thanksgiving just see everyone's reaction. Of course I will do it before then to make sure it looks and taste so!! Thanks for sharing!!

After reading about so many delicious recipes on here - I thought I would share my go-to chocolate cake recipe :)


1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup of chocolate chips (I personally use the reeeeally dark chocolate because I like the way it tastes and you can use way less than say milk chocolate and have a much more chocolaty flavor
3 egg whites - 1 yolk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder


-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with Pam or some alternative.
-Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds after the first minute, until chocolate is melted and smooth. If you have a powerful microwave, reduce the power to 50 percent.
-Combine the beans and eggs in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Add the baking powder, and pulse to blend.
-Pour in the melted chocolate and blend until smooth, scraping down the corners to make sure chocolate is completely mixed. -Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan.
-Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.

*I like to top mine with sliced strawberries or raspberries and dust with a little bit of organic confectioners sugar

OH - and don't TELL anyone that it's made with garbanzo beans and I am willing to bet you MONEY not a single person will question it. I've put this cake in front of some of the toughest critics and I have yet to have one last longer than a few hours... Enjoy!

No sugar, or sugar substitute? Or, did I miss it somewhere?? Or, does the organic sugar dusting flavor it?
