Makes 16 servings. Macros per serving (1 piece of cake):
Calories: 267 | Fat: 22.8g | Net Carbs: 3.9g | Protein: 7.9g
- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- ⅔ cup granular sugar substitute
- ⅓ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ cup unflavored whey protein powder
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 6 tbsp butter, melted
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup unsweetened nut milk
- 1 oz unsweetened chocolate chopped
- ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup powdered sugar substitute
- ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup butter softened
- ⅓ cup powdered sugar substitute
- ½ cup plus 2 tbsp whipping cream, divided
- ChocZero Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
- Preheat the oven to 325°F and grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, protein powder, baking powder, and salt.
- Stir in the eggs and melted butter, then stir in the water and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until risen and the top is firm to the touch. Remove and let cool completely.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the nut milk to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let sit a few minutes to melt, then whisk until smooth.
- Add the peanut butter and the powdered sweetener and whisk until well combined. Set aside about 3 tablespoons of the filling (for drizzling over the cake when it's frosted).
- Use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake. Pour the remaining filling over the cake, allowing it to seep into the holes. Refrigerate 30 minutes to set.
- In a large bowl, beat together the peanut butter and butter until smooth. Beat in the powdered sweetener.
- Add two tablespoons of the cream and beat in to lighten.
- In another bowl, beat the remaining cream until it holds stiff peaks. Add the whipped cream to the peanut butter mixture and beat on low until just combined.
- Spread the frosting over the chilled cake.
- Sprinkle the top of the cake with the chopped ChocZero Peanut Butter Cups and drizzle with the remaining filling. (Rewarm the filling gently and add a few teaspoons of liquid if it's too thick).
- Refrigerate another 30 minutes to firm up the frosting.
