  1. “did I ever tell you you’re my heeeroooooo”

    😀

  2. I’m so excited to try this! I make the pumpkin version all the time, and I love it.

  3. What could I use if I didn’t have quinoa flakes?

  4. Would homemade quinoa flour work in place of flakes?

  5. What is Truvia? I don´t think i can get it in my country, can be replace with anything else?

    • Truvia is a healthy sweetener, made of erythritol and stevia. It is similar to Splenda, Equal and Sweet n Low, except it is ALL NATURAL and not dangerous to the human body. You can probably order it online (I like Amazon.com), but you can substitute it with a healthy dry sweetener (like pure cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, sucanat, date sugar, etc). Or, you can omit it and sweeten the microwave cake with toppings such as bananas, pure maple syrup, honey, etc.
      Hope you like the recipe!

  9. Just tried this, but a salicylate free version
    (sub: almond milk > normal
    truvia > sugar
    Applesauce > nothing
    Flaxseeds > nothing)
    but omitted the salt, and it exploded in the microwave in under a minute!
    Is the salt the trick to prevent it boiling over or does the thicker consistency stop it? If so, I could add cashew butter to try and fix it!

    • dessertswithbenefits

      With that many substitutions/eliminations the cake simply won’t work. The flax helps bind the batter together, the applesauce keeps it moist, the salt is required for flavor and could help raise the boiling temp. The cake should work perfectly fine if the recipe is kept the same, and you can definitely add some cashew butter if you like it 🙂

  10. Love this recipe – simple, delicious, and so healthy! I made a few single-servings before deciding to just triple the recipe and make a big cake. Yum 🙂

    Thanks for sharing all of your great recipes!5 stars

  11. The more the merrier…. 😀

  12. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! It’s perfect for satisfying my chocolate cravings without sending me into a sugar crash. I love that it has protein in it too.
