q Directions

Healthy quest protein cake pops
Cake
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (for gf version, sub with oat flour and 1 tbsp coconut flour)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup pumpkin purée (or baked sweet potato)

Combine all ingredients and mix well with hands until a Dough forms. Pinch off pieces of dough, roll into a thin rope, and form into a donut shape. I was able to make 6. Arrange
On a plate and microwave 2-3 min until fully cooked all the way through. Let cool on a plate while you prepare your protein frosting.

Protein frosting
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 scoop quest vanilla protein powder

In a small bowl, combine both ingredients until fully mixed. Set aside. Crumble up your donuts in a mixer and add the protein frosting. Mix until mixture is just moistened and mixed together. Scoop out mixture and form into small bite sized cake pops. I was able to make 12. Place on a plate, stick lollipop sticks on the center, and set in freezer for about 15 min to allow them to "set". Meanwhile, prepare the coatings for the cake pops:

Vanilla coating
- 1/4 scoop quest vanilla protein
- 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- splash milk

Chocolate coating
- 1/4 scoop quest vanilla protein
- 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp baking cocoa
- splash milk

Get out two small bowls, one for the vanilla coating and one for the chocolate. Mix ingredients, adding just enough milk until mixture is smooth and creamy. Coating should not be thick otherwise it will be difficult to cover the cake pops with. Spoon desired coatings on top of cake pops then Top with desired toppings (I used unsweetened organic coconut shreds) then set back in freezer to allow coatings to "set". Store leftovers in a freezer safe container.
