Jaffa Fudge Mudcake

This delicious and rich cake is bursting with vibrant flavours and is packed with easily digestible plant-based protein. That makes this tasty thang breakfast and post-workout appropriate! It uses one of my favourite nut butters from Yummee Gluten Free: Cacao & Orange Peanut Butter (FYI this is not a sponsored post, I just really LOVE the stuff). It's moist, decadent and as always, vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, keto friendly, low-carb and diabetic friendly. Go ahead and bake your day!
