Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte


My friend Vikki Ann from over at lowcarbdiets.com forum came up with this recipe. I finally had a chance to give it a try tonight and it was FABULOUOS! I just had to share it with you. If you've ever made a 1 minute muffin this is very similar but very much a dessert.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER MICRO TORTE

1 Servingapprox 2 carbs depending on how much and what brand of the toppings you use.
cake:

2 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil

1 egg or 1/4 cup of egg beaters

1/4 cup of flax seed meal

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of baking powder

2 tablespoons of WF chocolate syrup

1-2 teaspoons of water
topping:

1-2 teaspoons of s/f peanut butter

2-4 tablespoons of WF chocolate syrup

Dab of whip cream
In microwave safe small bowl or tall cup works great; melt oil for 15-20 sec in mirco; add the remainder of ingredents mix well, I let mine set for a minute and had to add a teaspoon of water-you want a batter consistency; put plastic wrap over the top and poke a whole in it; micro on high for 1 minute.
You can put it in a bowl or just left it in the cup and spread the peanut butter, chocolate syrup and whip cream.
If you try it hope you enjoy, I am already thinking of variations; nuts, coconut. We are only limited by our imaginations.
** For my version I used cream instead of water. I added a little sweetzfree to make it a little sweeter. I added a tsp. crunchy peanut butter and cut the chocolate syrup to 1 tbsp.
My frosting was 1 oz cream cheese, 1 tsp peanut butter (crunchy) and 1 tsp. chocolate syrup.

Funny, I discovered the minute muffin again recently and have been trying out variations of it. Recently, I put a square of homemade chocolate in the middle and then nuke it - yummy! Lindt chocolate would work as well.

Oh man I'd never get over that melting chocolate in the middle. I'd just skip dinner and go straight for dessert...giggle

Hi Maureen,
Thanks for dropping in. Your not the least bit dense, forgive me for taking that short cut. WF is Walden Farms(http://www6.netrition.com/waldenfarms_syrup_page.html). I used there chocolate syrup, but any sugar-free low carb syrup you like will work.
I hope you get a chance to give this a try. It's quick and delicious.
