Healthy Triple Peanut Butter Cake

I just wish everyday could be Sunday. It’s always so peaceful–a perfect day for baking and lounging around and eating what you’ve baked. I’ve probably done more of the lounging around and eating part.

 

My boyfriend often asks me if I get sick of always making peanut butter flavored desserts and I reply with “What are you crazy man? Peanut Butter is life!” And then I don’t talk to him for the rest of the day! He clearly doesn’t know me at all. I never get sick of peanut butter. ūüėõ


 

To show my boyfriend how not sick of peanut butter I am, I made a Triple Peanut Butter Cake using the Peanut Butter Frosting I posted yesterday.

 

 

Peanut butter cake layered with peanut butter Greek yogurt frosting and then topped with more frosting and peanut butter and chocolate chips.

 

I used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup protein powder. You can get 30% OFF using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website.

It happened again! Today I was at the grocery store when I was stopped on my way out by Girl Scouts and their devil cookies! And by devil cookies I mean the world’s most delicious mass produced shortbread cookie with peanut butter and chocolate on top! Ugh, how are they so good?


 

I couldn’t stop thinking about these cookies so I decided to make my own healthy version of these addicting treats.

 

 

Unlike the traditional Tagalongs, mine are made using only healthy, whole food ingredients and protein powder. I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla. Get 30% off by using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website www.pescience.com
