Lentil Chocolate Cake

Yes, Chocolate Cake!  Who would have thought...lentils for dessert?  At first I was going to say that this wouldn't fall into the "healthy eating" category, but the ingredients don't look too bad.  Enjoy this one all you chocolate lovers!  We loved it and will definitely be making it again...a fun way to sneak in some healthy foods!

  • 1/2 c Joseph's Grainery Lentils, cooked
  • 3/4 c oatmeal
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
