One thing I love about this healthy recipe is that it is so easy and single serving so you can enjoy it every night or just when you are craving chocolate without having to make an entire pan or huge amount. This is a great night time treat because when it comes to nutrition your body needs more protein before bed, but you also don’t want to load up on a lot of calories or sugar. The great thing about having protein before bed is it keeps your body and muscle fueled so that at night your body does not go into “starvation” mode. So instead of having to get your protein from a protein shake or something like egg whites and chicken, you can enjoy a delicious Chocolate Cake with this healthy recipe!
