I actually saw this mentioned on a Weight Watchers board and found the recipe online. I didn't find it on RecipeZarr, so I thought I would add it. My friend calls it Chocolate F*rt Cake! It is different and one way to get some fiber in your diet. I am sure you could play around with an egg substitute and Splenda.

I have a friend who is GF, so I'm always looking for GF things to bake and when I saw this recipe, I had to try it! I only made half a batch as I had some leftover chickpeas to use, and following the advice of some of the other reviews, I added some vanilla extract. I made about 5 large cupcakes, and they were sooo good. Moist, dense, chocolatey, and best of all, a much healthier version of chocolate cake/cupcakes. They were a bit soft though, and kind of fell apart when I bit into one, but still they were amazing. Definitely going to make this again and again, and not just for my GF friend!
