We like making gainz like a fat kid loves cake. Actually, we love cake too. The good news is we can all finally have our cake and eat it too. With our Cookies ‘N Cream Crush It Cake, we can all continue pursuing our fitness goals without giving up one of the best desserts known to man—chocolate cake!
We experimented until we created a recipe that not only satisfied sweet teeth, but provided just under 100 grams each of muscle-building protein, complex carbohydrates, and less than 10 grams of fat. The entire cake is under 900 calories— less than one slice of the average cake from a restaurant chain!

In another bowl, whisk together Core PRO, Core MRP, wheat germ, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix in dry ingredients and Greek yogurt, alternating each until completely added into the wet mixture.

When finished baking, take out cake and let cool completely before adding the frosting. Serve and enjoy; store remaining cake in refrigerator.
