Dense & full of flavour, you will never know it is ‘better’ for you!
One of my mom’s favourite holiday flavour combinations is lemon & cranberry! She loves it in all forms (cookies, scones, loaves, etc.). I wanted to create a healthier version of this classic favourite that was low in sugar, & higher in protein & fiber.

Protein Powder Recommendations
For this recipe, I used F-Factor’s grass-fed vanilla whey protein powder. This stuff is a game changer when it comes to ‘healthier baking’. If you have checked out some of my latest recipes you will know how much of a fan I am. It is also FULL of fiber, which is wonderful for this time of year as getting enough fiber is crucial for feeling full & satisfied.
With all that being said I have only tested this recipe with the grass-fed whey protein I shared above & the ingredients I have listed in the recipe below. I am happy to offer alternative substitutions for the ingredients used if you don’t have something. However, I cannot say for sure how it will affect the final outcome as I have only tested it with the specific ingredients outlined below.
I hope you all love the recipe as much as I do, & be sure to tag me on Instagram in your re-creations so I can share them on there!
