Pam's Chocolate Cake/Muffin/Bar Substitute
Pam says "Believe me when I say you will feel like you're really cheating with this recipe. It can be sliced into bars for protein bars for a snack or breakfast quickie, made into muffins or made in a loaf pan for chocolate cake."
2/3 cup 100% soy protein isolate
3 tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon melted peanut butter
4 packets artificial sweetener
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Put dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix oil and eggs in separate bowl. Melt the peanut butter and drizzle over dry ingredients. Add oil & eggs and stir with a fork until blended. Add water a couple tablespoons at a time and fold with rubber spatula until you have a smooth but thick pasty consistency. Pour into either a loaf pan or muffin tins and bake for approximately 15 minutes.
**Important: the amount of water can vary for a number of reasons...humidity in your area, consistency of your soy powder, etc. If you need more water or less water, it doesn't matter as long as you get the results you want.
For variations, try adding some walnuts, almond extract or melt a combination of peanut butter and cream cheese for icing!! Or drizzle some Howard’s pancake syrup on top.
