Vegan Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Here you have the ultimate chocolate and peanut butter combo in one yummy, healthy, rich and moist cake! The recipe is Vegan, Gluten Free and naturally high in protein!

I actually don’t have very many cake recipes on my blog as to be honest cake was never something I used to enjoy a lot as a child. I always found it too sweet and often very dry. This cake however is another level. Its so rich and moist with quite a dense texture its almost a bit like banana bread.

One of my favourite things about this cake is the amount of peanut butter in it!! As well as forming part of the cake its also whipped up with yoghurt to make a delicious frosting.

Unlike shop bought cake this cake is full of goodness with lots of healthy fats as well as being high in protein- this largely comes from the ground almonds, peanut butter and yoghurt.
