Lately I have been trying to cut back on my carbohydrate intake. I wanted to create a dessert that I could eat without feeling guilty, and this is the one I came up with. It really does have lots of flavor from the Almond Extract & butter flavor. I added the Chia Seeds to add an extra boost of fiber to the cake, although there is already 14 grams of fiber in a one third cup serving. Using Splenda instead of Sugar also helped to keep the carbs low.

We loved this simple and easy dessert, & were pleasantly surprised at the taste of it, knowing there is much less guilt than a regular cake.
