Sweet buttery iced cake goodness! With only 36 calories and 4g protein in each ball, there is surely no guilt to be had at this party!
It’s no secret that I’ve been a tad bit obsessed finding different ways to use Pescience’s new flavor of cake pop protein powder.
If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend. The smell is pretty mild when you open the container, but when you mix it with stuff (whether in a recipe or just a tbsp of water to get a protein frosting) the smell is 100% like that of yellow cake mix matter!
Hence, why I have been low-key obsessed with this flavor.
And of course, you know an actual cake pop recipe had to be coming eventually 😉
I spent days browsing recipes, but ended up loving the idea that one of my instagram friends, @healthybigeaters, did to make them.
She actually made cake batter flavored poverty cookies (if you haven’t seen these on instagram, they are basically a very macro friendly recipe that makes these amazing cake-like texture cookies).
I’ve had poverty cookies many times before, so I just KNEW how amazing they would be in this recipe.
I did switch things up a bit, using both unsweetened applesauce and canned pumpkin, as opposed to just one or the other. I’ve just found that I like the cookies better this way. But feel free to use all of one or the other!
These have been AMAZING to eat as a snack, pre-workout, and top on all my yogurt and dessert bowls.
Seriously, MELT-in-your-mouth AMAZING.
Enough with me yapping, here is the recipe!
