If you are looking for a low sugar, grain-free dessert this is for you!
We used our homemade coconut butter but you can use store bought too. We recommend softening it to make it easier to whip.
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.Print
