A moist cake loaded with protein and berries!

We're big fans of carrot cake here at Bulk HQ... Especially this week's fully loaded High Protein Carrot Cake from Clean Treats!

Featuring 14 grams of protein per serve and the goodness of healthy fats from coconut oil and our optional toppings, this cake is hard to say no to.

And if you love chai you'll love the tasty blend of spices in this treat. We're talking cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Our High Protein Carrot Cake makes the perfect morning tea and is big enough to share around the whole office.
