In Pittsburgh there is a bakery known for its Burnt Almond Torte cake. This is a light and fluffy two-layer cake with a middle layer of creamy custard. The frosting is a lightly whipped vanilla frosting, all topped with toasted almonds. We recreated that amazing dessert by filling vanilla coconut flour cupcakes with coconut vanilla custard, topped with vanilla frosting and toasted almonds.
We both shared a love for the classic pairing of chocolate and peanut butter before we began the paleo diet. To satisfy our flavor fix of M&M’s or Reese’s cups, we created these tasty little dark chocolate–covered almond butter bites. With only two ingredients, you really can’t go wrong with these!
