Chocolate & peanut butter molten lava cakes

DSC_0037I know what you’re thinking. How on Earth can something so sinful be healthy and vegan? I know, I thought the same thing when I took by first spoonful. Complete and utter heaven in my mouth.

I didn’t really expect the recipe to work. It was one of those “you know I’m not really bothered to measure or to whip out my recipe book but I’ll just mix some stuff together and pray to the baking god’s that it works” And boy, did it work!

DSC_0011Best of all, this recipe is simple and it’s only made of 7 staple pantry ingredients.

Oozy chocolate and peanut butter lava wrapped in a moist and fluffy chocolate cake. Need I say more?

So what are you waiting for?! Get up, get out and get this thing cooking!
