Healthy, High-Protein Carrot Cake

This protein-packed, carrot cake is full of healthy ingredients and cozy spices.

Carrot cake often comes across as a healthy dessert option (it includes carrots, so it has to be healthy, right?).  But what many people don’t realize is that this carrot cake isn’t exactly packed with nutrients… unless it’s made with the right ingredients. 

We put together a carrot cake recipe made with all natural ingredients, to make this dessert a real healthy choice.  This cake is naturally sweet and has an added scoop of SPIRU-TEIN Chai Latte to give it that extra sweet, spicy flavor and a great dose of protein. 

This recipe is perfect for fall!
