High-protein Low sugar Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Snack Cake!


3/4 c almond flour

6 tbsp Aloha chocolate protein powder

2 1/2 tbsp sifted coconut flour

1/4 c dutch cocoa powder 

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 c peanut butter

1/4 c coconut sugar (or 3 tbsp monkfruit)

1/4 c pumpkin puree (or sub applesauce)

1/2 c non-dairy milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Aloha PB Chocolate Chip or PB Cup bar (See link in my bio for a discount!)  

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and stir well.

Add the wet to the dry to form a batter (It will be thicker than traditional cake batter).

Transfer to a parchment lined pan (such as 4X6).

Cut the bar into small pieces and gently press on top of the batter. 

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until center is springy.

Cool completely then drizzle with melted dark chocolate or chocolate ganache (I melted 1/4 c Paleo dark chocolate chips with 1 tbsp PB + 2 tbsp nut milk)

Slice and enjoy warm or chilled!
