Maybe make it with splenda and applesauce instead of sugar and butter or oil. Don't know for sure since I've never tried it!

I don't have a recipe for a healthy chocolate but if you used dark chocolate, that's actually suppose to be good for you - lol!

Christina Perillo is a vegan cook and here are some her chocolate cake recipes:

I havent' tried any though. I did make her mango upside down cake and it wasnt' so good. With the whole wheat flour and no eggs it was rather heavy.

there is a very good one in one of the Moosewood restaurant cookbooks that uses, I believe, no fat other than what is in the baking chocolate. Either Moosewood restaurant cooks at home or ...sorry, forgot the other title by them. But don't frost it or it's no longer healthy.

Secondly, a great cake I used to make frequently is in the cookbook called Professional Vegetarian Cooking. It uses buttermilk and some form of fat replacer but I don't recall it.

Finally, I have made several flourless chocolate cakes that use ground almonds or almond meal, no other added fat. The one I use most is from a Bon Appetit and is actually a passover cake, from a few to five years ago. It uses orange juice too....fabulous! Wish I had some right now.

:headscratch: You know, I don't know if Splenda is healthy or not. I just know that when I've searched for lower fat recipes, Splenda always seems to be substituted for sugar.
