My life changed when I discovered raw deserts and raw cakes that were not only healthy but sugar free to. They have no added sugar, only natural unrefined sugars, so are far healthier for you than traditional sugar laden cakes. Not only that but they really are healthy cakes as they are made from ingredients that are good for you. Nutritious ingredients like nuts that are full of protein and as a vegan its not easy to find vegan protein recipes. Protein is so important not just for people who workout and go to the gym. These are eggless cakes that are full of protein. This is an eggless cake recipe how crazy is that. They are also glutenfree cakes too so they really do tick all the boxes. Oh and did I forget to say they taste delicious. You'l be amazing how good the white chocolate tastes. I love white chocolate but could never find a vegan white chocolate so now this is wonderful for me.
