Low Fat Chocolate Dessert Bars

18 servings

We love this low fat chocolate dessert because it is totally healthy. What could be better for you than oats, fruit, and cocoa powder?

low fat chocolate dessert

7 oz quick-cooking rolled oats
2 oz cocoa powder

10 oz pitted sweet cherries, fresh or frozen
10 oz ripe banana chunks
6 oz pitted dates

Line the bottom of an 8 x 8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Lightly oil the uncovered sides of the dish. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium straight-sided bowl, weigh quick oats and cocoa powder. Remove from scale and stir together well. Set aside.

Thaw cherries if frozen, then put them in the blender and blend. Add banana chunks and blend again. With the blender running, drop the dates through the hole in the blender lid, one date at a time. Blend until smooth.

Pour blended fruit into a large straight-sided bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir until mixed.

Spread the mixture evenly in the parchment-lined baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Cool in the dish for 10 minutes, then use a knife to loosen the sides. Turn the sheet of baked mixture upside down on a small cutting board and remove the parchment paper. Cool for 10 more minutes, then cut into 18 small rectangles (3 x 6). Rinse your knife between cuts if it seems sticky.

Put the individual bars on a cooling rack. When they are completely cool, wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate or freeze.

Comments: These healthy chocolate bars are delicious, with a rich chocolate taste. We wrap them in plastic wrap to keep them moist and to reduce the temptation to eat more than one at a time! 

If you are looking for a low calorie chocolate dessert, look no further. Even if you eat two of them, you will take in only 200 calories. For an elegant touch, garnish them with a few cherries or sliced bananas.
