This frosting is so so delicious. I made this up, scooped up a large spoonful, walked through my house to find my husband. As he saw me coming with a spoon I told him to close his eyes and open his mouth. I had him taste this frosting ….he opened his eyes and they widened, he smiled largely swallowing than he blurted “Wow! That tastes better than a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup”. Yes!!! I love making food, the person I love making it for the most is my husband, when he loves it I do a little victory dance. If you like this frosting as much as my hubby and kids do than I’ll do another victory dance just for you too!! <3
I’ve had a couple of people tell me that when they’ve made this it’s been too runny, this NEVER happens when I make this recipes. The only thing I can think is that they are using a different cocoa powder and Peanut flour which aren’t as absorbent as the brand I use.
Let me suggest a way around getting a runny outcome as opposed to a nice thick frosting. Only add the almond milk if needed after all ingredients have been added. Add a TBSP at a time, and use your best judgement with how thick you want it to turn out. 🙂
This is still one of my favorite frosting to add to a cake, it always comes out exactly the way I want it to and the flavor is perfect for my tastes. Like everything when using natural sweeteners personal tastes vary, so taste test to achieve your perfect sweetness level and flavor.
1/2 Cup Softened Butter
1 cup De-fatted Peanut Flour (I use the Protein Plus Brand)
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (buy here)
1/4 tsp Mineral Salts (buy here)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (some have found this not necessary to add, it really depends on your cocoa, and peanut flour, so mix all ingredients and use your judgement to add all or just some)
Place ingredients in a deep bowl and mix with beaters, scrap sides of bowl to insure frosting is thoroughly blended and fluffy.
This makes the perfect amount of frosting for my One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Cake, or on whatever suits your fancy.
