This recipe started off as a peanut butter chocolate lava cake.
Unfortunately, I am a very impatient person. Meaning, even though I knew I would only have to wait 10 minutes for the coconut oil and peanut butter mixture to freeze in the freezer, for me this was way too long.
So, instead, I decided to completely change the recipe… And make a peanut butter chocolate fudge cake instead!
Because life is short, so who really has time to wait around for cake any longer than the necessary baking time?
Even though this cake happened by accident, it’s still quite delicious and extremely decadent! The coconut oil and peanut butter included in the recipe make the cake extremely rich, so while these may seem like relatively small portions trust me when I tell you that is all you will want!
Additionally, the use of melted chocolate chips in the recipe add a dimension of dark chocolate-y goodness that’s absolutely out of this world!!
So let’s be honest here. This recipe makes two portions… but given how absolutely decadent the cakes are, it’s a safe bet that you’ll be eating both of them tonight!
Enjoy! (I know I will! :))
Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Cake
- 8 dark chocolate chips (about 2 tsp)
- 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tbs gluten free flour
- 2 tbs almond milk
- 1 tbs egg whites
- 1-2 tbs sweetener of choice (I used stevia)
- 2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tbs peanut butter
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips and 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil. Microwave on high for 15 seconds, then stir until fully melted. Add flour, milk, egg whites, sweetener of choice, and cocoa powder and stir until smooth. Pour a spoonful of batter into each of two greased ramekins. Melt coconut oil and peanut butter in the microwave for 15 seconds. Pour over batter in each ramekin. Top with additional batter. Stir together slightly with a spoon. Bake for 8 minutes, or until edges are firm and center is still a bit liquidy. Remove and flip over on a plate. Enjoy!
