Anyone who knows me knows I have a sweet tooth. However, I still want to eat a healthy diet, which is why I enjoy experimenting with typical dessert foods and making them healthier at home. That is how this healthy flourless chocolate loaf came to be. It is quick to make, uses just four ingredients, and barely requires any dishes. Suitable for nearly all diets, this rich and fudgy loaf is gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, naturally sweetened, and packed with 71 g of protein in the entire loaf.
I used Pure Goodness chocolate pumpkin seed protein powder for its delicious flavour and added nutrition. I had never seen a protein powder made of pumpkin seeds before, and this one blew me away. Pure Goodness cold presses their non-GMO pumpkin seeds to maximize the nutrient preservation which results in a plant-based protein powder that also contains 18 different amino acids. Their product is gluten-free, soy-free, vegan, paleo, and raw meaning it is safe and healthy for all different dietary restrictions.
Pure Goodness is also a company with a conscience. I was thrilled to find that their chocolate flavoured protein powder uses fair trade cocoa powder. They also donate 1% of sales to Children’s Hunger Fund to provide nutritious food to struggling families in the U.S. You can find out more of what Pure Goodness is up to on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
