Caramel Apple Protein Cake Recipe

Cake Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups oat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sweetener (we used stevia but cane sugar, coconut sugar, or regular sugar works too)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (regular milk, coconut milk works well too)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon + 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
6 tablespoons melted cashew butter (peanut butter or almond butter work well too)
apple, diced
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon butter flavored coconut oil (regular coconut oil works too)
Protein Cinnamon Frosting Recipe
Frosting Ingredients:
8 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature (fat free, low fat or regular works)
2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk (regular milk, coconut milk works well too)
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Protein Factory Micellar Casein Protein Powder
1/4 Cup Natural Granulated Sweetener (we used stevia but cane sugar, coconut sugar, or regular sugar works too)
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

Frosting Instructions:
Put cream cheese, agave nectar, almond milk & vanilla in a medium size mixing bowl. Mix with electric hand mixer until all wet ingredients are blended well. (You can blend this by hand with a fork but it’s gonna take some muscle!)
Pour in protein powder, granulated sweetener & cinnamon. Stir in with electric mixer, mixing until all ingredients are blended well and frosting is a creamy texture. Mixing until a VERY thick batter is formed. If your frosting is on the dry size add in 1/2 tablespoon of almond milk at a time, mixing well before adding in any more milk.

Cake Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9×9 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix together oat flour, baking powder, granulated sweetener & 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together applesauce, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla & egg. Mix well.
Stir in cashew butter. Set aside.
In a small pot put apples, agave nectar, 1 tablespoon vanilla & coconut oil. Cook on medium heat until apples are soft. Stirring often.
Pour apple mixture into cake mixture. Mix with fork well.
Pour cake mixture into greased cake pan.
Bake for 40-45min. Until golden brown on top and when you stick a fork in the center it comes out clean.
Let sit until cool.
Spread protein frosting over cake.
Slice and enjoy!
