If you are trying to find whole grain dessert recipes, this quinoa cake is a game changer. From the blog Barefeet in the Kitchen, the "unforgettable" flour-less chocolate cake is perfectly moist, rich and chocolaty. It maintains the tender texture of a regular chocolate cake, but without having to add any specialty flours -- just cooked quinoa.

The layered dessert also has a healthy dose of frosting made from heavy whipping cream and semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips. The quinoa cake recipe is adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe and Quinoa 365. The quinoa also gives you a little protein boost.

While it isn't vegan, it is still great for people trying to cut white flour out of their diets.
