Raw Cake is one of our favourite kinds of protein recipes to make. It’s easy, tasty and you don’t need an oven to make this great and filling snack. All of these reasons made it the perfect choice for Wanderlust 108 2019.
We had the best time at Wanderlust this year in London’s Battersea Park! It was great to meet so many of you and share some of our favourite protein recipes with you.
We had so many people ask for this particular recipe on the day that we just had to share it. This vegan Avocado and Banana Raw Protein Cake is so tasty, we had to make more as soon as we served up a batch (it went so quick!) so we hope you enjoy the recipe as much as our Wanderlust friends did!
