*Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
Combine the following ingredients into a bowl and mix by hand:
- 1/4 cup Almond Flour
- 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed Meal
- 3/4 Scoop BSN Syntha-6 Whey (Cinnamon Bun Flavour)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 cup Egg Whites
- 1 jar (~1/3 cup) baby carrot food - I used Earth's Best Organic strained carrots (this makes the cake moist… if you omit this, it will be DRY).
- 1/4 cup grated carrots
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 3 TBSP erythritol
- 3 TBSP Walden Farms Calorie Free/Sugar Free Pancake syrup
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla)
- add last:
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes (use a toothpick to verify the cake is cooked).
Cool completely before proceeding to the next step...
Add the following to a bowl and mix to create the icing:
- 1 TBSP Daiya Dairy Free Cream Cheese Style Spread
- 1/3 scoop BSN Syntha-6 (Cinnamon Bun Flavour)
- 1 TBSP erythritol
- 1 tsp water (if necessary)
Make into Cake Pops:
- After the cake has completely cooled, break it apart with your hands until the cake is just a large pile of crumbs.
- Take your cream cheese frosting and mix it in to the crumbs.
- Grab a chunk of the mixture and roll it into balls using your hands.
- Place on a plate (I used plastic wrap to line the plate - to make clean up easier) and poke them with a lollipop stick!
- Stick the cake balls in the fridge for an hour before serving.
