Here is what you will need:

– 3 cups chopped & cooled, steamed cauliflower (I SWEAR you do not taste it)
– 3 cups dates, pitted
– 1/2 cup almond milk (or other plant-based milk, unsweetened)
– 1/2 cup coconut flour (or other gluten-free flour)
– 1/2 cup raw cacao powder (or chocolate vegan protein powder)
– 4 tbsp all-natural peanut butter (I used chunky)
– 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence (or powder)
– 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt
– 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
– Extras: walnuts, raisins, vegan chocolate chips

How to make:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Blend the cooled cauliflower until smooth in a food processor. Add in the milk, the dates, peanut butter and vanilla, blending until completely mixed and creamy.

2. Stir dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth (approx 1 min). Scoop it out into a bowl, and fold in the extras (walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, WHATEVER you want).

3. Spread the batter into a lined (with parchment, or oiled with coconut oil) deep baking dish evenly. Cook for approximately 1.5 hours (OR until you can put in a fork without having dough on it).

4. Let it cool completely & then cut up and ENJOY!!!!

*This will last 3 days in the fridge.

ENJOY!!!! xo
