Secret Ingredient: Beans! Yup. You’ve probably heard of black bean brownies, well this cake is inspired by white bean blondies.
I recently made some amazing (husband approved!) s’mores peanut butter cake bars for my blog, Healthy. Happy. Life. – using white beans – so this peanut butter cake was a natural try as well.
The creamy beans are not even noticed in the cake – they act as a sort of egg replacer. And add some nice protein, fiber and vitamins.
I drizzled this simple cake with some dairy-free chocolate sauce for a lovely vegan dessert.
