I love cake. Who doesn’t really? I could live off cake. Literally! But these days I’m becoming more and more reluctant to waste precious ‘cheat meal allowance’ on a slice of cake. And as always, that was just the push I needed to get creative.


My collection of protein powder flavors offer an unbelievable palate to experiment and create and this prOat (protein-oat) cake #RYEcipe is a wonderful blend of vanilla cake and chocolate frosting (mmmmm….)
