Cinnamon Rolls - Low Carb and Gluten Free

Hey all! So since April we have relaunched our brand and also been at various shows throughout the year. We have taken some of you down memory lane about the period before our rebranding and also talked about the story behind the company. By now many of our customers know that real food is paramount to us and that's why we always try to give fresh innovative recipes which incorporate protein powders without having to always make a shake! (but if that is what you prefer, we've got those recipes also)

Getting creative in the kitchen is a fun way to show you what you can do.

So let us show you the Whey.
