Most of us pass on cake due to its poor nutritional value, plus all of the calories and carbs hiding in each slice. This macadamia-coconut cake, on the other hand, is packed with protein and good-for-you ingredients. The recipe comes together quickly—just mix everything together and bake, and in 25 minutes, you get an impossible-to-resist dessert without any guilt. It’s much easier than avoiding the dessert table at your sister’s birthday party this weekend–that’s for sure!
