Absolute Best Flourless Chocolate Cake

I have been on a bit of a quest of late to find healthier dessert options.  You see, I heart everything chocolate. I am a certified chocoholic.

Treats like the chocolate-raspberry mini-turnovers I made for Mother's Day last year are my downfall.

I figure I could at least try to use healthier dessert recipes. Like this flourless chocolate cake recipe from RecipeTin Eats.

(Not a chocoholic? No worries. I have this flourless Carrot Cake here for you to try.)

Valentine's Day is the perfect holiday to try out this recipe. Since this cake is made with Almond flour and is a healthier version of regular chocolate cake, I won't feel so guilty eating it.

I  am bringing my son's third grade class donuts for Valentine's Day (29 decadent donuts.) And let's not forget my kindergartner. His class will be enjoying gooey red cupcakes that I will be buying making from boxes of mix scratch.

Then there are those candies. You know, the ones that the kids have to have to go along with their Valentine cards they pass out to their friends. ( Is it just me, by the way,  or does it seem that every year there is a competition of some kind at school where each kid will try to bring the biggest and the best-est candy to school to give to their classmates? It's like those little boxes of mini heart-shaped candy with the cute little 'be mine' sayings on them just do not cut it anymore.)

 And lest we forget, the big fancy red and pink heart-shaped boxes of chocolate candy boys want to give to their teachers. I will need to buy 3 of those boxes this year.

All that chocolaty goodness in my house. My will power will never last. And my thighs will pay the price. My only hope is to try this flourless and gluten free chocolate cake recipe and hope it satisfies my sweet tooth.

Somehow, I think it will.

And if that doesn't work, well, one of those heart-shaped boxes of candy for the teachers just might be missing a candy or two.
