  1. I love all your blog posts/recipes Rachel! I find them to be so insightful and easy to understand :). With this recipe though, what could I sub the protein for? I’d put in maybe a scoop but that’s it ! Thanks! xo

    1. Hi Bec, thank you! You could use 1 scoop of protein and then 1/4 cup almond meal, coconut flour or oat flour. Or you could use 1/4 cup of whatever flour you choose and then 1/4 cup cacao powder :) xx
