Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake for One

Sometimes you just need a lazy day. And that's exactly what I had all day yesterday. A nap. A TV show binge. It was so badly needed. I actually feel refreshed for once on a Monday morning.

When I woke up from my evening nap, I decided to treat myself. Wine and chocolate, obviously. The best part? The chocolate cake I threw together is completely clean, so I could enjoy it guilt-free! What's even better? It's a lava cake. Because the only thing more awesome than chocolate is chocolate with an ooey gooey peanut butter center.

Oh my goodness, this cake was to die for.

~ Directions ~

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a small ramekin.

In a small bowl, combine the oat flour, cacao powder, salt, baking powder and stevia. Add the pumpkin and almond milk, and stir until it forms a batter. Spoon half of the batter into the ramekin. Scoop the peanut butter into the ramekins into the middle of the batter. Then top with the remaining chocolate batter. Sprinkle with a few cacao nibs.

Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until fork inserted into the cake come out clean. Remove from oven and let cool.




A Sunday in with a glass of vino, this delicious cake and a Sex and the City binge session.
Enjoy warm. The gooey peanut butter center melts out when you stick your spoon in.
