Warning: This is an addictive substance! And it's all Frieda's fault for sharing! This however is probably one of my best healthified chocolate recipes. It works so well and you won't believe that you can add that much flax and not tell a difference, but you can! It's amazing! The original recipe is from Nigella Lawson on Food Network (fancy, huh?), but I got it from Frieda Loves Bread. My alterations cut out 250 calories, 20 g fat, and 20 g sugar, and add 3 g fiber and 2 g protein per serving--not too shabby!


3 T butter or margarine
2/3 c semisweet chocolate chips
5 T ground flax seed meal
1/3 c white sugar
2 eggs
3 T whole wheat flour

Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave until just melted (cook for 30 seconds at a time, stirring a lot between each 30 seconds). In a separate bowl, mix sugar, flax, and eggs. Add melted chocolate mixture. Add flour. Pour into four greased 3-4" ramekins or custard dishes. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 400 degrees until pots are shiny and crispy on top (they will still be gooey in the middle, that's part of the beauty of it all).
