I bet you never thought you would hear the words Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake and “healthy” and “light” in the same sentence. But that’s what the very clever Jen at The Fit Housewife has managed to achieve here with this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake recipe.

Miracle worker or what? Just look at all that chocolatey lushness with chewy pieces of cookie dough.

OK – maybe this isn’t “health” food in the strictest sense, but it’s definitely a lighter, healthier version of the much-loved Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake recipe, which tastes absolutely fantastic.

Essentially, the recipe weaves its magic by using unsweetened apple sauce plus dates and honey for sweetness. There’s also a generous amount of non-fat Greek yogurt and a massive 12 egg-whites for it’s light mousse-like texture.

Sure there’s a little butter and whole cane sugar in the cookie dough, and dark chocolate chips but I think that can be forgiven from time to time – can’t it?
