Who doesn’t like cake?  Wholesome Cravings combines protein and cake, which is a definite win-win in my book.

There are five varieties of the protein cake mix: Banana Chocolate Chip, Decadent Chocolate, Pumpkin Spice, Caramel Apple, and Apple Ginger.  I was able to sample the Banana Chocolate Chip.  The protein cake is super easy to make – I just had to add 2.5 bananas, 3 eggs and a sweetener of my choice.  The box recommended agave nectar, but I am out, so I used maple syrup.  I had a hard time letting these cool down before I cut into the pan to sample them.

INGREDIENTS:

Whey protein, flaxseed, oat flour, chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, and vanilla extract), pure vanilla powder (dextrose and vanilla bean extractives), baking powder (sodium aluminum sulfate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch, monocalcium phosphate), baking soda, salt. Contains: milk/dairy and soy.

Each bar (when cut into 7 servings) contains 190 calories and 11 grams of protein.  I was very impressed with the flavor and texture of this cake!  As I have said in the past, I am always looking for a good way to refuel after my runs and/or workouts and what better way then with a piece of cake?  The protein cake mixes are certified gluten-free, but while the premade bars are gluten-free, they are not made in a dedicated facility.
