I was in the mood for Chocolate Cake, but I was also kinda in the mood for peanut butter…  just like every other day.  So I made my favorite Chocolate Cake recipe.

And it’s the bomb.

This isn’t like any other Chocolate Cake, this is a Healthy Chocolate Cake!  It’s super chocolatey, moist and decadent like those storebought mixes.

And the frosting?  OH. MY. GOODNESS. GRACIOUS.

It’s like heaven.  Wait no, it’s not “like” heaven, it IS heaven.  And that’s a fact.

I’ll let you in on a little secret here too:  When I was about to make the peanut butter frosting, I remembered I had run out of peanut butter the day before (crying and screaming occurred here, obviously).

And then I remembered my Peanut Butter Frosting made without peanut butter.  Peanut flour literally saved my life this cake.  Peanut flour is like peanut butter in powder form.  You can use it in baked goods and frostings, you can even reconstitute it with water or milk to make “instant peanut butter.”  I use peanut flour quite often in my recipes and I used it in my cookbook, DIY Protein Bars.  The company who makes the peanut flour contacted me and asked if I’d like to do a giveaway and I said yes (it seemed only right to share the peanut flour love).  To sign up for the giveaway, scroll down to the bottom of the post!  :)
