  1. Love all these recipe ideas. I just made your Sweet Potato Protein Cake for morning snack today. Made a few adjustments based on what I had in the house: used 30g oatbran (instead of oats) and MGN cake batter PP (instead of vanilla PP), and 1/4 c egg whites instead of a whole egg. The cake was really good though I think I overcooked it a little…); felt like I was eating carrot cake! Will definitely make this again.

  2. Hey Susan!! I’ve used egg whites in place of the egg before, that works fine too. :D

    Did you use a dark pan, or a light pan? Sometimes that can affect the way the texture comes out, especially if it was cooked in a lighter/glass pan. You could also cook it at a lower temperature for a little longer, and that will prevent it from drying out.

      • I guess it depends on your oven, too :) Remember as well that egg whites instead of the egg will give it a little bit of a different texture as well. So try different cooking times and things :D

        You’re welcome!

  6. The Frozen Cottage Cheese stuff can also be made with Cocoa of the Dark variety (awesome if you can get it) as well as some Peanut Butter. Delicious.
