Have you ever visited Chocolate Covered Katies website? She makes some fabulous stuff. Pre-THM I made many lovely things from her blog. Since THM I have found that many of her recipes are so close to being on plan, that with minimal changes, they can work for us! I especially LOVE that she’s vegan, that makes the EGG FREE part especially easy!
I wanted a yummy treat for my husband today, he has been recovering from an illness and lost a few pounds and could stand the extra calories. I found this lovely little peanut butter cake recipe on her site and with a few changes, it is now a delicious THM crossover! I also made her frosting that is linked in her post. So easy!! (Sadly I am allergic to peanuts, so this isn’t for me, however I think any nut or seed butter would work great in here!)
You can find the original recipe here: Frosted Peanut Butter Snack Cake
These are my changes
* I used oat flour for the flour called for, same measurements
* 1/2 cup of sweet blend was plenty to sub for the 1 cup of sweetener she calls for. If you use any other sweetener, I would recommend using the full cup.
* I used a single serving size cup of apple sauce in place of the yogurt. This keeps this one dairy free as well!
I made it in a 9×13 cake pan and it came out a little thin, but still great. Husband and daughter were VERY happy with it! Their review was that it was delicious and they would definitely want it again!
I might try using a square cake pan next time and see if that results in a little deeper cake. Either way, we are happy and this cake will be made regularly around here.
Thank you Chocolate Covered Katie for your hard work and great recipes!
