Peanut Buttah vs Chocolate Family reunion

So I ask you,

What goes better. Peanut Butter and Chocolate, or Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Is there a difference? I don’t fucking know, but the two together brings me more happiness than a clearance rack of doughnuts.

I had a can of beans left in the fridge and I wanted to get them used up. Been awhile since I made brownies, but I was thinking I wanted to give a cake a go, well trying to keep the carbs as low as possible. So, through countless hours SLAVING away in the kitchen I came up with little beauty.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Explosion Cake

IMG_20150914_212211

Things you will need for Chocolate Cake:

1/2 svg of chocolate protein(mine was 15g)

6g SF FF chocolate Pudding mix

60g Rinsed and processed cannellini beans into flour

5g Coco

1/8 tsp Baking soda

1 tsp Baking Powder

7 g Coconut Flour

30g Pumpkin Puree

70g Almond Milk*

10g Chocolate Syrup*

Mix above ingredients in a bowl and set to the side

Peanut Butter Cake ingredients:

.75 scoop of peanut butter protein(roughly 23g)

60g rinsed and processed cannellini beans into flour

6g PB2

60g Pumpkin

7g Coconut Flour

1/8th teaspoon Baking soda

1 tsp Baking Powder

60g Almond Milk*

10g Pancake Syrup*

Place batters into Sprayed and Lined Baking dishes and Bake at 375 for roughly 25 min. Chocolate took about 27 min.
Make sure to do the knife or toothpick test to tell if done or not. Once done, take out and leave to cool on a raised surface for 20-30 min

Well Those are Baking we will make the Frosting:

15g Chocolate Protein

5g Coco

6g SF FF Pudding mix

50g Almond Milk *

30g Chocolate Sauce*

Mix together and place in fridge to thicken.

Now a note to add. Items that have a * behind them may need to be adjusted to deal with your specific protein powder or likeness. Less liquid will be much thicker, more liquid will make it a bit more runny.

Now once the cakes have cooled, slice each cake in half. Now you can just layer the cakes, you can use a bit of frosting to help each layer stick, or you can just use a bit of chocolate syrup. I wanted to save all the frosting for the outside so I just spread a bit a chocolate syrup on each layer to help ‘hold’ it. If I wanted to increase the protein content a bit I would most likely add either another half scoop chocolate or pb protein to make more frosting and could place between each layer,,, but for this recipe I skipped it.

Okay, now at this point you should have a 4 layer cake. I did Chocolate layer, then a pb layer, then chocolate, then pb on top. Now take your frosting out of the fridge. Should be pretty thick, so feel free to add a shot of chocolate syrup or a bit of almond milk/water and remix it. Then, begin to cover your beautiful naked cake.

Now if you would like to add the PB Drizzle, just take 6g of PB2, mix with a bit of liquid then pour over the top.

Proceed to top with your favorite toppings if you would like. As soon as this is done, grab a eating utensil(I wont make ya use a fork if you don’t want to) and begin to instantly consume until you are forced to take a breathe.

Lets be Honest. Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fucking Rock.

What is up everyone! I decided to share some Reese cake recipes with you.
Will work on building these recipes into even better versions but until then let these satisfy your taste buds. First one I made ages ago, 2nd one made last night. Very similar, next time I will use regular flour.

Blend 90g cannelloni beans. Put half in one bowl and half in another(for two cakes if only one combine everything) then put half equal parts of each next ingredient in each bowl. 20g coconut flour, 90g pumpkin, 8g sf ff pudding, baking powder, vanilla or chocolate extract, sweetner of choice I used stevia and chocolate sauces, and a egg white in each. Then in the chocolate cake I put 5g coco and 1/2scoop chocolate pb casein. Almond milk to mix. Other bowl I put 12g pb2, 1/2scoop pb protein, and again almond milk to mix. There is the base, chocolate cake and pb cake. Put in oven at 350 and cook till done. 15-25min. Pb cooked way faster than chocolate. Take out and let sit till cool. Then take 5g coco, and 1/2scoop protein (chocolate pb for me) and a bit of almond milk and chocolate sauce if you have and mix into frosting. Can add more sweetener if needed. Cut both cakes in half. Place chocolate on bottom, take half of pb cake on top, take a thin layer of frosting and spread on top of pb cake. Then if wanted place desired goodies(pb cups and cereal for me) then place 2nd pb cake on top of filling. Place chocolate cake on top of that. Then use frosting to cover the cake. Top with desired goodies.
I hope I’m not missing anything.

Macros without goodies but with frosting was 565cals 8f 64c 63p give or take a few.

1/2 scoop pb protein

1/2 scoop chocolate protein

1/2 c cannelloni beans

90g pumpkin

2 egg whites

6g pb2

5g coco

3 sweetner packets

7g reese chips

Almond milk

Baking powder

Syrup and Chocolate Syrup.

Make just like above cake mixing chocolates with chocolates, pb with pb. Bake same amount of time.

In the meantime Take

5g coco

1/2 scoop chocolate protein

11g SF FF Pudding mix

Chocolate syrup

Splash of almond milk and mix for frosting.

Take takes out to cool, once cool slice each in half and spread a thin layer of frosting on each. Stack the pb on each other with 1 layer of chocolate on the bottom, and one layer on the top. Cover with remaining frosting and top with Reese chips.

Macros for 1/4 of the cake before extra toppings: 144 cal , 2.2f/15.4c/15.3p and 5.1g of fiber

Macros for whole Cake before extra toppings: 574 cal, 8.8f/61.5c/61.3p and 20g of fiber

A light drizzle of peanut butter and the fats can still stay low, or even use a PB2 drizzle to keep it way down. I also recommend adding in at least one crushed up Reese =]

Not to shabby for eating a whole cake. I think just about anyone could fit a slice of that into their day. Served with ice cream is always best of course.

What flavor cakes would you guys like to see? Enjoy the cakes even or am I wasting my time eating all this dank ass food?haha

What’s going on guys??! Raining ass Friday and its slow as hell at work. I figured I would kill a bit of time and write up a full review on my thoughts about the company Enlightened and their product Roasted Broad Beans.

I like beans. Baked beans, Green beans, Bean Brownies, all sorts of beans. Good carb, good protein, good fiber. What else do you want.

Now, I want to say I am not affiliated, endorsed, or anything like that with this company. I was just lucky enough to win a giveaway and really enjoyed the product.

IMG_20150807_075820302

How nice =]

They also have ice cream which I would really like to try, but not stocked by me =[

So, What are Broad Beans?

“The best-kept secret in healthy snacking! Enjoyed around the world for their delicious flavor and satisfying crunch, broad beans are a nutritional powerhouse packed with protein and fiber.”

Then What are Enlightened Broad Beans?

ENLIGHTENED Crisps are also certified vegan, gluten free, non-GMO Project verified, OU kosher, and wheat free. So go ahead… spill the beans.”

Here is what a typical bag looks like, and my personal favorite flavor, Sriracha

Svg Size 1 oz : 100 cals, 2.5 fat , 15 carb, 7 protein with 3g of fiber.

Here was two reviews I did on some of the flavors.

IMG_20150804_173057

@eatenlightened roasted broad beans Garlic & Onion.
First of all I wanna say thank you to @eatenlightened and @lowcarbcooking for hooking me up with a nice little goodie package.
Secondly, I freaking love these. At 2.5f/15c/7p 3fiber I could eat these all day. Awesome change up if you like munching on sunflower seeds, nuts, etc. Awesome flavor, great crunch(made a good topping on my chicken lo mein) and leave a nice taste in your mouth. Cool that it’s beans to haha. So many flavors to try.
Overall: 9/10
Would I buy: yes
Would I recommend: yes

IMG_20150805_131529

Back with another review.
Today I’m doing 2 more flavors of the @eatenlightened beans.
Sriracha: first bit is sweet then come the heat in and gives you just the right amount of zing to know its Sriracha but not to hot where it looses flavor(like lots of Sriracha products) I could eat these for days, and threw some on my chicken Sammy which was a great idea.
Sea Salt. Perfect amount of salt flavor, and no to over powering. Threw these in my soup and they kept their crunch for some time. So much better than an oyster cracker.
No way to rate one over the other here cause it would just call to personal likings on flavor.
I would give them both a 9.5/10 just cause there is always room for improvement in anything.
Would I recommend: yes
So much you could do with these. Salads, chex mix, dish toppers, etc

They Also have BBQ and Wasabi flavor not pictured as well.

I highly recommend these to anyone and everyone! So much potential with these bad boys. I will be making these a staple in the diet. I wish I could get my hands on their ice cream to! Go check them out!
