1. I still have cravings for chocolate.
2. They get bigger the more I ignore them.
3. I WILL give in to them.
4. When I do, I'll overindulge and blow my morale and any advances I've made.
So today (after a day tainted with some really bad emotions), I really wanted some chocolate. But I wanted something small. After searching the internet for a bit, I came across the following recipe for the Improved 5-Minute Chocolate Cake. I played around with it a little and ended up with this:
In a large, microwavable coffee mug, mix:
- 5 tbs flour
- 3 tbs cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 tbs sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 5 tbs milk
- 1 tbs oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
It was the perfect amount to satisfy my sweet tooth. It's certainly not healthy, but it's better than the kind of splurge I have usually.
What small (healthyish) snacks do you use as your standby?
So the other night, I went to make this, only to find out we had no milk. But we had heavy whipping cream...which made this 10 million times better. Seriously. You might need to add a little water, because it makes the batter super thick.
