High Protein Pumpkin Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Macro-Friendly Pumpkin Cake

pumpkin cake 3

This cake is much higher in protein, and much lower in carbohydrates and fat, than a typical cake. It’s dense, moist, and not overly sweet: leftovers keep very well in the refrigerator, or cut unfrosted cake into slices, wrap tightly, and freeze for later.

Serving size: 1/9th of an 8×8 inch cake
Per serving:
Calories: 188
Protein: 13.6 g
Carbohydrates: 16.2 g
Fat: 7.8 g

(If you bake your cake in a different size pan and cut it into more or fewer slices, the macros will be different!)

It’s been more than two years since I last wrote anything here at Healthy Green Kitchen. Did you miss me? (If you didn’t notice I was gone, I’m not the least bit offended lol.)

For me, the time really flew: I found lots and lots of things to do. I got certified as a nutrition coach, then a strength coach, and I’ve been working with clients in both capacities for some time now. Also: I’ve been running an Airbnb at a family-owned property in partnership with my dad, and I just packed my oldest child up to go to college.

My decision to stop blogging wasn’t a spur of the moment thing: I’d thought long and hard about it. And I remained certain I’d make the right decision about until just recently, when I realized that I miss creating and sharing recipes here. I’d never gotten around to taking the site down…so I’ve decided to give it another go.

To long-time (long ago?) readers of this blog: I really cannot thank you enough for sticking around. That said, I do want to give you a heads up that things are going to be a little different this time around (I’ve listed 3 new things you may notice below). Two years is a long time: I’m not the same and the way I cook and plan to run this blog isn’t going to be exactly the same.
