This recipe honestly couldn’t be easier. Two bowls, 1 bread pan, and 35 minutes in the oven.  I love the way this comes together super fast and has your house smelling like cake within minutes!

I had thought about adding a peanut butter swirl throughout the cake but decided to keep the Oreo flavor strong by using both Cookies and Cream protein powder and a crumbled Oreo on top.

These are super high in fiber due to the coconut flour and takes on an angel food cake consistency when eaten cold.

I love eating it in frozen greek yogurt as an ‘angel food cake parfait’, topping it with Greek yogurt, or eating as a dessert with peanut butter or original Essentially Coconut coconut butter on top!
