High protein marble cake

Today’s high protein marble cake recipe is brought to us by omnomnom_knusper

For me, this is the best protein cake recipe I know!

I decided to create a version with vanilla and chocolate dough and added cherries to this. It is however so easy to adjust the ingredients and come up with a very different cake. If you prefer not to use cherries, you can add nuts, apple bites, chocolate chips or really anything else you prefer. Of course you can also make a cake with 100% chocolate dough,  or 100% vanilla dough.  You can use peanut butter or cashew butter instead of almond butter. You can make a vegan version with sweet lupin or almond yogurt instead of natural yogurt, bananas instead of eggs and a vegan protein powder (I personally prefer to use almond flour, which is also high in protein and not rice protein, because rice protein can change the consistency).

Feel free to be creative with this recipe and no matter what it will taste amazing and will be packed with protein!
