Chocolate Peanut butter Brownie Cake (GF, DF)
Yes, I said it... "Brownie Cake". This recipe turned out to be a happy accident, but i'm definitely not mad about it because it also turned out to be one of the best things I've made so far! It's also gluten-free, dairy-free, AND refined sugar-free. Details below...
For the cake: 1.5 cups almond flour 1/4 cup cacao powder 1/4 cup peanut butter powder or regular PB 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/4 tsp baking soda 3 Tbs coconut oil melted, cooled 1 large egg 1 egg yolk 1 tsp vanilla extract 3/4 cup maple syrup Cream cheese icing: 4 oz kite hill plain cream cheese 1 Tbs peanut butter or peanut butter powder 1-2 Tbs maple syrup 1 Tbs coconut flour or arrowroot starch Preheat oven to 350.
