1/2 cup vanilla vegan blend
1/2 cup goji berries
1 cup carton coconut milk
1 teaspoon toffee flavdrops (again, optional but nice)
1. Blend all the cake ingredients together and bake inside three little cake molds or giant-muffin molds.
2. Bake this at 170 C (320 F) for about 35 minutes or until when poked with a knife, your knife comes out clean. Once baked, allow them to cool and slice them in half. T

The end-product is shockingly caramelish and super crunchy from the coconut and gojis. It’s delicious, seriously, try it. Try it to enjoy it. Try it and convert any and all your protein-skeptic friends too! It’s a wonderful thing to witness!

Where do you get Toffee Flavdrops (or equivalent) in America? You use them all the time and I always feel like I’m missing out.
I don’t have banana whey. Could I sub for vanilla or other flavor whey? I really want to make this and don’t want to wait to order new POW. Please help!
Goji berries and I don’t get along. Are they necessary? Is there a sub?
I don’t think you can get toffee flavdrops in the US BUT!!! there’s LOTS of flavoring syrups available for example at amazon (sugar-free stuff). If you can’t or don’t wanna get any that’s fine though, just use some stevia instead or leave that bit out.
Definitely use vanilla whey 🙂
Instead of the gojis you could use some dates?
Almond toffee liquid stevia may be an option as well.
I’m a little bit confused.. with 2 cooked beets as ingredients of the recipe, I would expect the cake to be.. of a purple color?
Yup, I know, but the rice protein and toffee took over as you can see!
