Every now and again I like to pretend I’m @tumblinbumblincrumblincookie. It’s a good life. I like to imagine my days filled with huge dollops of peanut butter, fancy never ending oatmeal bowls, and fruit galore. Today, I couldn’t stop thinking about her magical cakes – so I made my own. Chocolate protein cake filled with my go-to cookie dough topped with a chocolate sauce (unsweetened cocoa, stevia, & water), a caramel sauce (1/4 cup juicy dates mashed with water – so simple and SO yum), and more cookie dough balls. This is incredible. Please make it. I documented the entire thing on snapchat XD because I was so amazed. Snapchat username: pbeechie1. Because somehow pbeechie got taken by someone ._. If you’re the culprit, FESS UP! D;
Also note, I’m still slowly transitioning to veganism. Pretty proud this recipe is vegan and still so so yummy. Dairy – gone. Meat – long gone (Except sometimes I get fish sushi shhh). Eggs – gone. Now I’m just phasing out my products that have whey protein. I don’t want to toss it out, but I have sooo much stufffffff. Protein powder, pancake mixes, protein bars, even a ton of my nut butters have it. Eventually..

In a bowl, toss in all the ingredients!! Mix until even. Pour in a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray – I used two mini springform pans. Bake at 350 F for 16-17 minutes. Cut into 4 pieces. Eaaattttt.
