It's a sugar, oil and gluten-free snack. All that's needed is mixing for these super-easy treats. Although it's only 55 kcal per serving, they are filling. It's full of fiber and polyphenol. It looks like Ohagi (sticky rice cakes), but it's not!
Put all ingredients into a bowl to mix together. (If there are some lumps in the cocoa powder, put through a sieve in advance.)
Place microwave-safe paper cups on a tray. Divide the batter into 4 portions and fill each cups with a spoon.
Microwave for about 3 minutes at 500 W. It's done. It's delicious chilled, too.
During Step 2, you could use microwave-safe muffin cups, too. They'll become more like muffins.
Story Behind this Recipe
I am on an okara diet now! I created this recipe without sugar, oil or flour. You can bake these in the oven, but it is easier and quicker to use a microwave, which doesn't require a mold either. There are good detoxing properties in cocoa that might help you lose weight!
Adjust the amount of sweetness as these are rather bitter. I used the artificial sweetener called "Equal". I get mind at Costco (1 pack: same amount as 2 teaspoons of sugar). Adjust the cooking time depending on your microwave. (It's done when the surface dries out.) You can add your favorite nuts, dried fruits or bananas!
