The perfect healthy High Protein Gingerbread Cake topped with a Protein Powder Greek Yogurt Frosting; An sugar free gingerbread cake recipe made with whole wheat flour, unflavored protein powder and no oil. A great healthy ginger dessert for snacking too.
I really had quite a big dilemma here with where I wanted to go with this recipe. A low fat whole wheat gingerbread cake was always the plan, but the protein or no was a whole other question.
I’ve done a bunch of these protein powder desserts - especially cakes - recently, but I’m still now sure how many people coming here are here for the protein or just the healthy aspect.
Put a poll on my Instagram stories for a protein vs regular, and it was without a doubt the most useless poll ever! A split 50-50.
So since neither of us could decide what to go for, I made an adaptable ginger cake recipe where an unflavored protein powder replaces some of the flour; As opposed to one with vanilla protein powder replacing sugar.
Now all that’s needed for a regular ginger spice cake is switching that protein powder back to flour!
I still went for a vanilla protein frosting though because no way am I putting that sugar in.
