My healthy version comes in at 80 calories per portion including the frosting! Coconut oil and yogurt make this fantastically moist and soft. I used buckwheat flour as a gluten free alternative to white flour, guaranteed to not cause bloating!

Although this is a healthy recipe, it tastes anything but! With a dense and rich chocolate taste, that melts in your mouth, this is a perfect recipe for any occasion!
