You guys. 

It’s been a tough couple of weeks in these neck of the woods but let’s celebrate something light hearted today- It’s Niki’s birthday! As many of you know, Niki is my fourth sister. First there was Kim, then there was Kourtney and then there was Kitty Khloe.

 

I thought today, besides sharing a stereotypical recipe featuring sprinkles (because sprinkles = birthdays in blog land), I’d also embarrass Niki.

Dear Niki.

I’ll never forget the time when you were misbehaving and mum threatened to feed you chilli. She went to grab the chilli paste and you were squirming and crying and making a fuss. I came to your defence and what happened? Mum chased ME with the chilli and made me eat it. 

I’ll never forget the time when our neighbours gifted you the video of ‘Lady Lovely Locks.’ You watched on at least 12 times a day for 6 months straight. 

I’ll never forget the time we went to Iran when you were 5 years old and you were so antisocial, you refused to eat meals with the whole family. Up until the very last day, you’d demand your meals to be eaten in the family room. It’s probably where your Kardashian trait came into the picture.

Dear Niki.

I’m sorry when I was 10, I convinced you that Pokemon were real and that I had a ‘Pikachu’ who was invincible and caused thunderstorms.

I’m sorry I once hid your Furby for an entire day. I just could not deal with it whinging. I’m sorry for hiding it again the next day because it woke me up at 3am. 

I’m sorry I restarted the Simpsons computer game when you were to close to completing it. I was just jealous that I couldn’t get past the third stage.

Dear Niki.

I can’t believe you thought I was dumb enough to believe you weren’t speaking to boys in the middle of the night. When I came into your room to catch you, your phone was shining next to your ear. You also were smirking. No one smirks like a Cheshire cat in their sleep.

I can’t believe that one time you tried to convince me you were adopted. You didn’t need to convince me. It’s probably true.

I can’t believe you like tidying up and reorganising your room when you’re bored. Why couldn’t you wash dishes, mow the lawn or vacuum instead? 

me and niki

In honour of your birthday, I have a recipe which you’d probably not eat. The sprinkles aren’t gold plated and this wouldn’t be served to you on a silver platter. You won’t be fanned by one of NBA’s greatest and North will only be a direction for you. However, there are sprinkles, it’s delicious and I like it. It’s not ALL about you, Nikardashian Niki.

So here we have Healthy Cake Batter dip for one.

This healthy cake batter dip for one tastes exactly like cake batter in terms of taste, texture and deliciousness. Unlike traditional cake batter, this healthy version is packed full of the good stuff without sacrificing on taste and only takes five minutes to whip up! It’s creamy, thick and eating it every day is like celebrating your birthday every day. It’s packed full of protein, thanks to the protein powder used in the batter. It’s also got a healthy dose of those healthy fats and fiber so pretty much, yes. You may call this ‘breakfast.’ Naturally gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free, there is also an option for my paleo friends out there. 

I often get questions regarding which protein powder to use. I trialled this using my main three staples-My favorite paleo protein powder, my favorite vegan protein powder and my favorite casein protein powder. I don’t recommend using whey protein as my experiences with it have turned my recipes into pancakes….When my intention was a waffle/cake or ball gown.

Make this healthy cake batter dip for one and toast Niki as you do.

Just kidding, unless your name is Kanye.

Ingredients
  1. 1 small-medium overripe banana, mashed
  2. 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice (I tried a paleo blend, a vegan blend and a casein blend)*
  3. 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice**
  4. 1 T oat flour (sub for coconut flour for paleo option)
  5. 1 T gluten free cake flour (omit for paleo version)
  6. Pinch sea salt
  7. 2 T nut butter of choice (I used almond butter)
  8. 1 T pure maple syrup (can sub for another sticky sweetener)
  9. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  10. Dairy free milk***
  11. Sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine your mashed banana with the protein powder, flours, granulated sweetener of choice, sea salt, sprinkles and mix well.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with maple syrup until combined. Stir in the vanilla extract and pour into the dry mixture and mix well until fully combined. If batter is still too crumbly, using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a very firm batter is formed. If batter is too thin, add a dash more flour.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and top with more sprinkles and enjoy!
Notes
  1. * Protein powder is optional but if you do omit, add an extra tablespoon or two of flour.
  2. ** I didn't use any sweetener as my protein powder was sweetened and my banana was sweet enough.
  3. If you freeze the recipe, it's best to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

  1. Happy B-day to Niki! It’s fun. It’s my sister’s birthday on Saturday and I am going to post a brithday recipe for her tomorrow. But I haven’t found decent sprinkles yet 😉

  2. Happy Birthday to Niki! What a fun recipe and how sweet that you posted a recipe idea for her birthday! I probably wasn’t the best of siblings. However, I do seem to remember my brother handcuffing my doll to the swing set and then throwing the key over the fence… My favorite birthday cake? Cheesecake maybe or a molten chocolate lava cake perhaps…

  3. HAHAHAHA can i be the third kardashian to you two!? I’m obsessed with your family and still have never met them. this is every reason why i am disappointed in being an only child. will you adopt me?

    AND is this the recipe that you were telling me i would be excited for!??! because YOU WERE RIGHT and even though you don’t recommend the whey, i just feel like the Cellucor Corfetti would be a crime not to use in this.. i might need to test it out tomorrow.. with cake batter cashew butter =l good heavens. I’m turning into Tim Gunn #projectrunway (would Niki approve of that show?)

  4. I was the best sibling! My brother would say “OW! Mom, Mandy hit me!” when I was nowhere near him, like in another room and I always got in trouble for it. So my brother better make this for me on my birthday and toast the heck out of me. Happy birthday, Niki!

  5. Hahaha…what a great post! My sister and I fought like cats and dogs when we were little…but now we are bestest friends. I never would have imagined that! Happy birthday to Niki…and happy birthday to me with this delicious cake batter for one idea!

  6. Dear Arman, I always get a kick out of you and Niki. So many things you mentions brought back memories from when my kids were young…like pokemon and the furby. Although, I must admit I loved the furbies more than my kids! I still have them…but I took the batteries out. I wish Niki a wonderful day! Adorable post and what a fun birthday dip. Take care my friend, Catherine

  7. Happy birthday Niki!
    Ohhh, I have to think about the ideal birthday cake thing, considering that my birthday is in 9 days. I usually ask for ice cream cake or something with a lot of chocolate.

    I feel like Craig and I were typical siblings as kids…sometimes we got along, most of the time we didn’t. It did get better as we got older though.

  8. Happy birthday to Niki! What a fun tribute post, hope her day was great! This recipe looks amazing, I’m totally trying it! I’m one of 5, we all have our moments of niceness 🙂 Even if we don’t live together anymore, we’ve still remained so close! My ideal birthday cake is ice cream cake. All of the ice cream cake!

  9. Happy Birthday Niki! You can tell you are one proud brother… even if you tease her so much! 😛
    Oh I used why protein to make your banana bread cake batter and it turned out fantastic! Must just depend on what one you use.
    Reading this has made me want to message my brother right now 😀

  10. I just made this… I was drawn to it because it was a single serve. Although I will say it is a LARGE serving…. I liked it, but it was very rich. I used coconut flour, wasn’t sure if I should use 2 TBSP if I was omitting the cake mix. Mine was very soft not like the picture. I didn’t add any additional milk. Still loved the taste. Thanks!

  11. I just made this and it tastes great!! The only thing I’m wondering is how you got it to be so pretty and white? Mine is the ugliest color of brown haha. Thank you!

    1. Hi Cassie! So glad you enjoyed it! Oh gosh, haha it totally depends on your protein powder- I found casein ones came out beautifully white (Optimum nutrition and also Tech brand) however the vegan one was the WORST color haha!

  12. I just stumbled upon your page and I love all of your recipes!! I have a few questions about this one though so sorry if I sound annoying ?. I am on keto so this is why I would wanna switch it around to make it perfect!

    1. Milk was optional if it became too dry correct? If so would heavy cream work instead of milk? (I don’t drink milk?)

    and this is the only place where milk was needed right??

    2. Could I leave the banana out?

    3. Could I leave the protein powder out?

    4. With leaving the protein powder out and having to substitute flour… would you recommend the 1 tablespoon or the 2 tablespoons?

    5. What is the best sticky sweetener for keto do you recommend instead of the syrup?

    6. How long will this last in the freezer?

    Thank you for answering all of this!!

    1. Hi there- Yes, that is correct, heavy cream should be fine.

      You need to swap out the banana for something else, applesauce or pumpkin.

      Yes, you can, sub it with extra flour, adjust accordingly. I used monk fruit sweetened maple syrup.

      No idea for the freezer, feel free to experiment and see.
