Finally I got myself a bundt cake pan! It’s about time haha! So my for my first cake I wanted to try an oat flour cake plus I had some really ripe bananas so added those too and of course I added cacao powder for the chocolate! I also used VitaFiber powder for extra fiber, if you haven’t tried check it out here VitaFiber
Banana Bundt Cake
• 3 medium ripe bananas (appx. 2-1/2 to 3 Cups mashed)
• 2 Tbsp Honey
• 1/3 Cup plain greek yogurt
• ¾ Cup Almond milk or milk of choice
• 2 Eggs
• 2 Egg Whites
• 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 3 Cups Oat flour
• ½ Cup Cacao Powder
• ¼ Cup VitaFiber Powder (Sub for granulated sweetener)
• 2 Tbsp baking powder
• 2 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease/flour bundt pan (I used cacao powder after greasing with coconut oil – do not skip this step!).
2. Mash Bananas in bowl then whisk in honey, greek yogurt, almond milk,
eggs and vanilla until well combined.
3. Mix together flour, cacao powder, sweetener, baking powder and
cinnamon. Add dry to wet ingredients and stir until no clumps left.
4. Pour into greased bundt pan and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.
5. Let cake cool and turn onto serving dish and drizzle with chocolate and fruit if desired (My chocolate drizzle is 1/4C of heated almond milk poured over 1/4C chocolate chips and stirred until melted, for a thicker ganache use 1/3C chocolate chips).
Notes: Nuts, chocolate chips or dried fruit would work well stirred into
Make sure you grease your pan and dust with flour or cacao powder.
And it will pop out nice and easy!
Drizzle with chocolate!
Hope you enjoy!

Topped with greek yogurt mixed with vanilla whey protein and fresh strawberry slices.

Preheat oven to 375ºF. In a glass baking dish (at least 1.5 litres or 8×8)
line half of sliced strawberries on bottom, top with blueberries and then
remaining sliced strawberries. Sprinkle cinnamon, Xylitol and chia seeds over berries (alternatively you can toss all in bowl with some freshly squeezed lemon). In bowl combine all dry ingredients, pouring coconut oil in once all dry incorporated then mash together with fork until you get crumbly texture.

These are super delicious! I used blood orange and beet powder to get the pink hue of these protein treats. I adapted the recipe from my Lemon Protein Blondies I made a while back. They are super moist, low in fat and high in protein. Perfect for Valentines Day too ❤ Recipe below.
Orange Red Velvet Protein Blondies
• 1 Cup oat flour
• ½ Cup (52g) vanilla whey protein powder (I used Kaizen Naturals Isolate)
• ¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt
• 1 tsp baking powder
• ½ tsp Cinnamon
• 2 tsp beet powder
• ½ Cup freshly squeezed orange juice (I used blood orange)
• 6 egg whites
• 2 tsp xylitol
• 1 Cup unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease 8×8 glass dish with coconut oil (or use parchment paper). In large bowl sift oat flour, whey, salt, beet powder and baking powder together. In separate medium bowl mix together orange juice, egg whites, xylitol and applesauce. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Pour into prepared dish and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Cool and slice into 12 squares.
For the chocolate drizzle i took a couple tablespoons of Enjoy Life chocolate chips, melted then stirred in 1tsp coconut oil and 1Tbsp warm almond milk, stir until smooth. Drizzle over cooled blondies.

These homemade protein bars are very easy to make, full of nutrients, peanut butter and chocolate! Of course you could omit the chocolate but I don’t recommend 😉
They are gluten free, high in protein and vegan when using plant based protein powder. You can also use whey protein if desired.
Here is the recipe:
Superfood Protein Bars
•2 Cups large flake oats (divided)
•½ Cup protein powder (I used Vega vanilla)
•½ Cup mini chocolate chips (enjoy life foods)
•½ Cup chia seeds or ground flax (I used ¼ cup of each)
•½ Cup chopped dried fruit or raisins (I used chopped dates)
•1 Cup natural peanut butter
•½ Cup Almond / Coconut milk
•¼ Cup Maple syrup or VitaFiber
Pulse 1½ cups of oats in food processor until flour consistency (if you have oats ground yield about 1¼ cup grounded). Add all ingredients in bowl and mix with a hand mixer until well combined. Line 8×8 dish with parchment paper and press down evenly. Place in fridge to harden up for about 1 hour. Slice into 18 bars. Drizzle with extra chocolate if desired.
