Protein Birthday Cake (for breakfast)

If I told you right now that I ate a birthday cake for breakfast, would you believe me?

More than likely, you wouldn’t think it would be possible.

Well feast your eyes because I’m about to turn it into reality.

Dessert just became my breakfast.

Don’t be fooled by the frosting and sprinkles though, because this is no ordinary birthday cake.

This cake tastes indulgent but it is indeed healthy. The cake is made with MyOatmeal “Muscle Maker Cake” oatmeal blend which I customized myself using instant rolled oats, cake batter flavor, pea protein and white cane sugar. The frosting was made with So Delicious brand Plain Greek Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt and Cake Batter PB Lean from MyOatmeal.

Everything in this “birthday cake” is indeed good for you, but you would never know it because it tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast.

So without further ado…the recipe.
