– Deedee (@eatswithdeedee )

  • 3/4 C Almond flour
  • 1/4 C MariGold Creamy Vanilla Whey Isolate Protein Powder
  • 1/3 C Granulated sweetener (I used @rxsugar)
  • 1/4 C Butter, softened
  • 1/4 C Plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 C Unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 TSP Baking powder
  • 1 TSP Vanilla extract
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • Sugar-free Chocolate for drizzling (optional – I used @choczero)
  1. Combine all dry ingredients and set aside.
  2. Mix together wet ingredients until combined, then add dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  3. Bake in a parchment lined 9×9 cake pan at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Combine 1/2 C granulated sweetener and 2 TSP cinnamon in a bowl. Once cake is cooled, cut into bite size squares. Roll squares in the boll of cinnamon sugar mixture, a few at a time, until coated.
  5. OPTIONAL: I drizzled mine with @choczero Chocolate hazelnut spread but they would be delicious with a caramel or chocolate sauce too.
