I had to sneak one more QUICK Valentine’s Day goody in!!!  Short, sweet, and to the point today because I have two kids home from school, a husband who just to home from a brutal work week, and a long to do list to power through!  This recipe really is a no brainer though and absolutely irresistible!  I intended on making these for my husband but this little batch barely made it out of the oven before I attacked them myself.  One bite to taste test it and the next thing I knew all three were gone.  However, I was gracious enough to give my husband a teeny tiny little nibble and he requested another batch to be made immediately, for HIM!!!  That convinced me my tastebuds weren’t deceiving me.  No problem, I got another 20 minutes for ya babe… I even kept my hands off of his batch to take a few pics…

Here is the real magic behind these sweet little love cakes.  Words can’t describe how in love I am with these nut butters…

I added a teeny tiny bit of protein powder to the batches I made but it’s not entirely necessary… it will add some good flavor, a bit of extra sweetness, and of course more protein!  If you choose to omit it, no problem!  You can simply use a little less milk OR add more Kodiak mix.  Batter should be similar to regular cake or pancake batter!!!  Easy peasy baking with Kodiak 🙂
