Chocolate Pecan Self-Saucing Pudding

Chocolate Pecan Self-Saucing Pudding - Quirky Cooking
 

Yum!  I love chocolate self-saucing pudding, but I haven’t made it for ages because of the amount of sugar in it… so I was very happy to find a healthy version in Cyndi O’Meara’s cookbook, “Changing Habits Changing Lives“!  I’ve changed it slightly to make it dairy-free, and it’s also wheat free and naturally sweetened.  You could easily make it gluten free by using gluten free flour.  It’s rich and decadent, and I know you’ll love it!  Enjoy!

Note: You can find fine sea salt, Vanilla powder and Dutch processed cocoa powder for this recipe in my online store!

    Hi Jo. Was wondering if you think this would work without the egg as my son is allergic to egg? Thanks 🙂
