Keto Spice Cake

The Keto Granola Bar recipe is altered to make a low-carb grain-free spice cake.

Thanks to IG friend @erika_marie72, the Keto Grain-Free Granola Bars have morphed into Spice Cake!!! Basically, I removed the nuts and nut butter and chocolate chips, added more coconut oil and spices, and topped with goat cream cheese frosting made with Powdered Swerve (I’m allergic to cow dairy). Erika uses butter instead of coconut oil, and I bet it tastes even more decadent that way.

I’m sure this recipe will evolve over time. I actually kinda miss the complexity and added sweetness the nut butter gave this, so I may add it back in next time. For now, here’s the spice cake recipe! Have fun with it!
