Sunflower Chocolate Cake

     Being the Kansas girl that I am, Sunflowers hold a special place in my heart.  In order to pay homage to my home state, I had no choice but to create a Sunflower Chocolate Cake.  And to make my people proud, I kept each of the 8 slices to a healthy 208 calories, 7.7g net carbs and 12.6g protein.  So join my celebration of the Mid West, and enjoy a piece of the Bible Belt and see how we do things in the land of Oz!  :)

Ingredients for 8 servings~
1/4 cup Betterbody Foods Chocolate Peanut Buter PB Fit Powder
2 Tablespoons Water
- - - - - - - - - - - -
4oz Kroger Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese, softened
7oz 2% Fage Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup Swerve Confectioners Erythritol
- - - - - - - - - - - -
1/4 cup Nutiva Buttery Coconut Oil, melted
1 scoop Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder
1/2 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1/2 cup Fat Free Half&Half (can sub with Almond Milk)
2 jumbo Eggs
1/4 cup Betterbody Foods Coconut Flour
1/4 cup Black Cocoa Powder (can sub with regular Cocoa Powder)
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Dash Betterbody Foods Vanilla
Dash Cinnamon

1 Tablespoon Lily's Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips
4-5 large Strawberries, stemmed and cut in half lengthwise

     Mix Peanut Butter powder and Water til smooth and spread into 6 inch circle on Pam sprayed Parchment paper and rest in fridge til solidified, if can do a day ahead it is best to give time to solidify.  Mix second set of ingredients til smooth and store in fridge to chill.  Mix third set of ingredients and divide in half (should yield 1 cup batter per cake), and pour into Pam sprayed 8" cake pans that have bottoms lined with Parchment Paper.  Bake each cake at 350 for 17-18 minutes, or just starting to set, may still be slightly soft in center, but no worries, Protein Powder baking will continue to cook after removed from oven, so best not to over bake.  Once each cake has cooled, turn cake upside down on cake platter and frost with half frosting, then set other cake face side up and stack on frosted cake and continue to finish frosting top layer.  Remove Peanut Butter circle from fridge, peel off Parchment Paper and place in center of cake, top with Chocoalate Chips and arrange sliced Strawberries around perimeter to create Sunflower effect.  Enjoy  :)
