This recipe is different and fun! I wanted to make a fun Strawberry Cake using Chickpeas. This cake is loaded with fiber and is higher in protein.

The only sugar in this cake is from natural sources so this also makes this cake a really healthy option! If you want cake but want to look tight and toned for summer this is a great way to have your cake and eat it too!

The icing is my Vegan Strawberry Cream Cheese Recipe found here! You could also use the Blueberry if you wish!

This recipe is gluten free, high in fiber, clean, lean, sweet and delicious!
