Skinny Chocolate Banana Souffle

Skinny Chocolate Banana SouffleI love it when I come across a chocolate dessert recipe that is not only easy, but low fat and low calorie! It's a dream come true! This dessert is so light, airy and creamy with just the right amount of chocolate/banana flavor!

I found this recipe here on a cooking blog called Skinny Taste! I made it as written except I baked my soufflés in 2 larger ramekins instead of 4 smaller ones. I sprinkled my soufflés with coconut powder instead of powdered sugar because I love anything that includes coconut, plus it was perfect with this dessert! This is a 'must try' recipe!

2 ripe bananas peeled and mashed
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
3 Tbls. sugar
powdered sugar or powdered coconut for garnish - optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease 4 - 6oz. ramekins or 2 - 12oz. and place on a baking sheet.
In a medium bowl mix together mashed bananas and vanilla extract.
Then sift in the cornstarch and cocoa powder. Stir to combine.
In a separate bowl beat the egg white with the sugar using an electric hand mixer set on the highest setting. Keep beating until soft peaks form. This should take a few minutes.
After you reach the soft peaks stage, gently fold 1/3 of the whipped egg whites/sugar mixture into the banana mixture. Then do the same thing with the remaining egg white mixture, gently folding until well incorporated.
Pour this mixture into the greased ramekins in equal amounts.
Wipe the edge of the ramekins if any of the mixture dripped on the insides because this will keep the soufflé from rising properly.
Bake for 15 minutes if using the smaller ramekins,
or 18 minutes if using the larger ones.
When done baking remove immediately from the oven and
 garnish with powdered sugar or powdered coconut if desired.
This must be served quickly before it starts to deflate.
Serves 2-4
