grain-free white bean & coconut flour vanilla bean cake
I'm so proud of myself. I created my very own recipe! I wanted to make a grain-free/paleo vanilla cake for my family and I couldn't find one online that used the ingredients I had on hand. So I thought about the chocolate bean cake recipe I had and decided I'd try a few things to make it a vanilla cake instead and in the process created my very own recipe because it actually worked!
I have to admit we were a little skeptical. But I am here to tell you that it works, and the result is a moist and delicious vanilla cake. You won't taste the beans I promise, but you will feel good about yourself for making a healthier cake.
Here's the recipe!
