Take Heart!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cake

Makes 9 to 12 squares, or 8 wedges 


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup natural granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup plain rice milk or soymilk

1/2 cup natural style peanut butter, at room temperature

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (preferably a natural brand)

1/3 cup chopped peanuts, optional  


- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

- Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl and stir together.

- Combine the applesauce, rice milk, and peanut butter in another bowl and whisk together until smooth. Pour into the flour mixture and stir together until fairly well blended, then use a whisk until the mixture is smooth.

- Stir in the chocolate chips and optional peanuts. Pour into a lightly oiled 9-inch round or square cake pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden on top, and a knife inserted into the center comes out with chocolate, but no batter.

- Allow to cool to room temperature or just warm, then cut into squares or wedges to serve.
