Paleo Chocolate Protein Nut Cup Cake

The beautiful Brianna was lucky it was her birthday or I never would've made this complicated cake.  But I tell you what it's worth every bite!!!

There's a great debate in our house Sunbutter butter versus Almond butter.  I like both but Joe says he doesn't like Sunbutter (Little does he know I put it in everything!).  This recipe was a compromise and I use both.

Ingredients Nut Cups:

Chocolate Layer:
Enjoy Life Chips 1 & 1/2 cups
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Coconut Oil 1/4 cup

Melt all ingredients together slowly until smooth.  Drop about a teaspoon on bottom of lined mini cup tin.  Place in freezer until it hardens.  Reserve the remaining half for the top layer.

Ingredients Nut Layer:
Nut Butter 1 cup (used half Sunbutter and half Almond butter)
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Vanilla Protein Powder 1/4 cup
Coconut Oil 2 teaspoons organic
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon (or some of that Bad Ass Expresso Vanilla Sea Salt)

Mix all ingredients together until smooth.  Add about a teaspoon on top of the chocolate layer.  Place back in freezer until hardens.  Then add final teaspoon of chocolate in place back in freezer.

Ingredients Chocolate Protein Cake:
Almond Flour 1 cup
Sweet Potato 1 cup
Almond Milk 1 cup
Cocoa Powder 1/2 cup
Chocolate Protein Powder 1/4 cup
Coconut Flour 1/4 cup
Coconut Oil 1/4 cup organic melted
Eggs 2 large
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Baking Powder 1 teaspoon 
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon 

Close all ingredients in food processor until smooth batter forms.  Pour into 9 inch round pans lined with waxed paper. Bake at 325° for 20 to 25 minutes.

Ingredients Nut Butter Frosting:
Nut Butter 1 cup (used half Sunbutter and half Almond butter)
Coconut Oil 1/2 cup organic
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon (or some of that Bad Ass Expresso Vanilla Sea Salt)

Using a standing or hand held mixer whip sll Frosting ingredients until light and fluffy.  This will take about 10 minutes be patent.  Frost cooled cake.  Top with chopped Nut Cups and drizzle with more Nut Butter and Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips.  Serve at room temperature but store in refrigerator.
