Fresh Start 2013 #CooksNetwork

Looking for a romantic evening? Or maybe a fresh and healthy start to 2013? How about both?
It's John's birthday this week and I like to celebrate in both delicious and healthy ways. Remember he's the reason this whole healthy blog started! So I wanted to take a classic William Sonoma Recipe for Molten Chocolate Cakes and health it up a bit! (Click on the image at the bottom of the post to go to the original recipe: since I know a lot of you love the full fat and sugar versions too!)

Skinny Chocolate Cakes
recipe by steph chows

1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup splenda blend for baking or 1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
dash salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or in this case chopped up mini eggs!)

Preheat over to 350 F
Mix apple sauce, sugar, vanilla, and beat in egg
In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
Add flour mixture to wet mixture a little at a time, stir in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into 6 lightly greased ramekins
Bake for about 20 minutes or until tops are firm to touch. (don't over bake!)

Now for a delicious but less skinny version head over here:
