Who doesn’t love chocolate and cake? I sure do. While I’m enjoying my time with baby number four before my husband returns to work next week (eek!), I’m excited to have Emily share her delicious low-fat chocolate chip cake recipe with us.

She says, “This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. It’s a great dessert AND even a great breakfast treat. The best part? It’s less than 200 calories per serving!”

Let me know if you try this, and what you think!
