Foodie Friday - Flourless Chocolate Cake
Celebrate #ValentinesDay and the 50th anniversary of the American #HeartMonth with something chocolate! Our Flourless Chocolate Cake combines two heart-healthy powerhouses: oranges and chocolate. This easy recipe will not only impress your Valentine, it’ll keep him/her healthy at the same time. #foodiefriday
When picking up your ingredients, look for dark chocolate that is 70% (or higher) cacao solids. A high percentage of cacao solids gives antioxidants, improves cholesterol and lowers blood pressure without adding sugar and fat.
