We used our homemade coconut butter but you can use store bought too. We recommend softening it to make it easier to whip.

If you have questions about plantains check out this post.

We used protein powder in the cake and fudge, but you can use any flour you like.

Please note this cake is not sweet like most of our recipes here on the blog. If you desire more sweetness add in some stevia or you can reduce coconut oil in cake to add in some maple syrup.

  4. Would there be a substitute for the protein powder? Could I use coconut flour?

    Posted on November 11, 2015 at 5:22 pm
    1. you can use any flour, you can use coconut flour you might need to add in more pumpkin puree as coconut flour absorbs differently

  5. which protein powder did you use?
    do you think whey would work?

    not rice protein, right? cause that would make it chalky?
    what about sunwarrior blend? too strong?


    almond flour?

    Posted on November 25, 2015 at 10:41 am
    1. we use pea protein in this recipe, yes whey should be fine. Sunwarrior blend might be okay, we haven’t had that in a long time so unsure of the flavor.
      yes Hemp protein would be great option too.
      Almond flour should be ok too.
