If your a fan of Reese’s Pieces peanut butter cups…..then GUESS WHAT??? We have the perfect cake for you!! Rich chocolate cake with a peanut butter filling and chocolate sauce…simply heavenly. This recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, low in sugar and with Paleo and vegan options.
Do you struggle with having dessert, like chocolate cake, and still liking yourself afterwards?
We did for years. We won’t go into too much detail about our restricting eating patterns, but we used to eat desserts behind closed door. We felt guilty if people knew we ate this or that, or felt like we were doing something wrong for eating chocolate. We fought this food labeling of good vs bad for years. It created so much chaos in our heads.
Until one day we just accepted that we love desserts. They will always be in our lives. Why should we feel bad for that? Now we eat cookies, chocolate cake , etc and still like ourselves afterwards. No more running to the gym to burn off what we ate.
This is why we make the recipes we do – keep the ingredient list short and use real foods as much as possible. This keeps our skin and digestion happy and our emotions happy. And honestly we just love cooking with these ingredients. It’s fun and they taste good. It’s about finding balance. Your moderation.
Okay enough food talk let’s get to baking.

We love the texture arrowroot mixed with tigernut provided this cake – a mix of light and rich.
Don’t have tigernut on hand, check out our other single serving chocolate cake recipes here.
You can also you any flour for the tigernut flour.
This cake is not a sweet cake, so add in stevia if your desire more sweetness.
We personally love rich chocolate that has just a hint of sweetness.
Enjoy your single serving chocolate peanut butter Reese’s inspired cake.
