  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup canola oil or light tasting olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cups toasted hazelnuts and pecans
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate pieces or dark chocolate chips
  • Chocolate-Hazelnut Frosting

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch square metal pan with foil and spray with flour-added cooking spray.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a large mixing bow; set aside.
  • In medium bowl whisk together egg whites, maple syrup, oil, milk and vanilla; add to flour mixture. Stir to combine. Stir in the cooled toasted nuts and the chocolate. Spread in prepared pan.

Notes

I didn't use all the frosting.
