Too often, we mistakenly think that something sweet and delicious cannot possibly be good for us. It is hard to argue that sweets almost always contain more butter and sugar than we want to eat every day, but that does not mean there are not plenty of offsetting good things and great nutrition to be also found. This becomes especially true when you bake from scratch, as you do with this recipe. Just adding the eggs is a great addition of protein, and here, there are three eggs in the recipe. That adds loads of protein and plenty of great vitamins and minerals to this cake. There are so many ways to make this recipe better for you and your kids and family. First, choose organic, unbleached flour. Substitute a small amount of finely ground whole oats in to the flour to bump up the fiber and improve the flavor without altering the overall taste of the cake. Use real vanilla, not the stuff made with sugar and dyes. And buy organic chocolate chips. They taste much better and are cost competitive, even with some of the very cheap varieties.
There are plenty of ways to make a special dessert that also has goodness in it. Try this recipe today, and be glad that you have made something using great home ingredients that your family will love. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Po' Man Meals.
