Single serve, cinnamon banana cake. This delicious, very large, banana cake, is for one. High in protein, filled with white chocolate chips, topped with cream cheese frosting.
Protein baking time! My protein baking has definitely been a hit or miss lately. Sometimes I just throw too many random ingredients together, and sometimes I try to go the quick route and microwave it when I should really be baking it. However, this cake was very much a hit!
So many perks to this cake, high in protein. There are 41 grams, per one single serving, it has white chocolate chips in it, cream cheese icingâ€¦. and delicious obviously :).
A few things I used in this cake that I never had before and safe to say I loved them all. My friend Lex was sweet enough to send me some protein samples, the 1st Phorm Cookie Batter being one of them. I have been wanting to try their products for a while now but I am SUPER picky with protein powder and could not get myself to buy a whole tub..because usually when I do that I end up not liking them lol. Not the case here!
The other product that I used for the first time was the Swerve Confectioners Sugar a lower cal, lower carb option for your baking needs! I never could get my cream cheese icing right but I think this is just what I was missing! If you spread the icing on the cake when it is still warm it melts a little bit which I love!
The little bit of banana is the perfect amount! It isnâ€™t overpowering but it gives the cake a great consistency and who doesnâ€™t love a classic banana bread! If you follow my Instagram page you know I am a huge advocate for all things white chocolate! If you donâ€™t feel the same feel free to use semi sweet morsels or just leave them out all together!
If you want to make a lower carb option swap the banana out for pumpkin or applesauce! It will taste a little different but will still be yummy nummy.
Tag me or message me if you make this 🙂 The perfect macro cap to end the night.
