Dark Chocolate Oat Cake Slices

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Today’s post is all about these delicious cake slices. I’m trying to create recipes that are slightly healthier but still taste good. I decided to use a dark chocolate with a cocoa percentage higher than 70% because it contains less sugar and is much healthier. Dark chocolate is also a great source of antioxidants providing health benefits to the body. It is important to check the ingredients when buying dark chocolate because most products sold are not what they claim. Oats are linked to a feeling of fullness and provide digestive benefits. Oats are also nutrient dense and contain good sources of fibre, carbohydrates and manganese. These cake slices tasted so good and I would recommend eating it freshly baked and warm straight from the oven.
