Recipe - Chocolate Hazelnut Dessert

I love the things I've figured out how to make with flaxseed-meal. This in particular. It gives me the taste of chocolate I crave while giving me a great dose of fiber. It's cholesterol free, low in calories, and best of all (for me) it's gluten-free!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup ground flaxseed-meal
1 Tbsp powdered cocoa (I use Nestle/Toll House)
2 Tbsp hazelnut flour/meal (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 packet Stevia Extract (I use NOW brand)
dash of cinnamon
1/3 cup warm-to-hot water
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, defrosted

Directions:
In a large wide shallow microwave-safe bowl,add 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal, mix in the cocoa, hazelnut flour, packet of stevia and a dash of cinnamon. Combine well. Add warm water and combine until gloppy. That's ok. It's supposed to be like that. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then use a spatula to gently loosen the sides and edges. Microwave another minute, loosen, scrape and turn over. Microwave another 30 seconds. Place on serving plate and top with strawberries. Makes 1 serving.
