Mini Chocolate Fudge Protein Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Icing


Mmmm! This cake is chocolatey, fudgey, & yummy!!! With a peanut butter cream icing that is smooth and silky. I can't even describe how delicious this cake is, mainly thanks to Lean Body for Her - their whey protein powders bake phenomenally and the peanut powder is perfect :) Enjoy!

Ingredients

Cake
2/3 cup oat flour
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ cup baking stevia or xylitol
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg
2 egg whites

Icing
¼ cup low fat cream cheese
¼ cup plain greek yogurt
¼ cup baking stevia or xylitol

Method

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 6” mini cake pan non-stick spray  and set aside.

2.  Place applesauce, egg, and egg whites in a mixing bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add in the remainder of the cake ingredients and whisk together until smooth and well combined.

3.  Pour cake batter into mini cake pan and bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes, or until cake is cooked throughout. Remove from oven and let cool for about 1 hour. Once the cake is cooled, slice it in half horizontally with a serrated knife.

4. To make the icing, heat the cream cheese up in the microwave for 10 seconds. Whisk until smooth then add in the remainder of the icing ingredients. Whisk together until blended then evenly spoon the icing on top of each cake layer. Stack the cake layers on top of each other then slice into 8 even pieces. Add some shaved chocolate, if desired. Enjoy!

Nicolette’s Tips
* You may substitute unsweetened applesauce with plain greek yogurt.
* You may substitute oat flour with whole wheat flour or regular flour.
* You may omit the liquid stevia in the icing if you do not have any. Or you can use another flavor, such as vanilla. If you omit it completely, add a little more stevia to taste.
