I’m not going to lie. 

I got a little bit excited shooting today’s recipe. 

Before we get into the actual recipe, I want to give myself a round of applause (applause applause)

I have officially tried every single Udi’s Gluten Free product physically available to me! 

GIVE ME SOME APPLAUSE. 

(Omg, I wrote Applesauce first). 

Okay, fine. I might not deserve it because I’m a huge fan of their bread and bakery range. When my friends at Udi’s sent me a lovely package of bread, I literally turned into a human Bon Bon over excitement. When I first saw their Rye Bread hit my shelves, I greedily bought a loaf, along with a new package of butter and was a content Channing Tatum lookalike

Long term readers may remember from this post I’d mentioned how in Australia, all the gluten-free bread products I’d tried reminded me of cardboard or maybe if I was lucky- A soft brick. Udi’s, however, has been a favorite of mine ever since my time studying abroad in 2010. 

Now for today’s recipe. With a truckload of bread, I’d obviously need to be creative with the toppings. In this post, I shared some of my typical toppings. On any giving day, I’d snack on a slice with avocado (or packaged guacamole) or some peanut butter. However, I am a huge fan of sandwiches for meals. For a sandwich to qualify for a meal, it needs 2 key features-

Numero Uno- Protein

Numero Duo- Healthy fats

Saying that, I’ve always struggled with enjoying a sweet sandwich for a meal because I couldn’t for the life of me think of a protein component. I guess I could have done the jam and egg route but the thought of that kind of makes me want to pull my weave out in frustration. I know there are many out there who would scoff at the ‘need for protein’ statement, but I know my body and know what it needs to be satisfied. However, with just a few tweaks, I was able to create this amazing sandwich (or any vehicle!) spread which was packed full of protein, healthy fats and low carb. 

Low carb = Carb heavy vehicle. 

Enter- Healthy Low Carb Cake Batter Spread.

This spread is going to take your sandwiches, wraps, crackers, fruit and spoons to the next level- It’s that good and that easy. The taste of cake batter yet without all the typical ingredients found in it. This healthy low carb cake batter spread has a simple ingredient list and is packed full of protein, healthy fats and a dash of natural sweetness. I tried it out with this paleo protein powder (paleo friends, you covered!), this vegan protein powder (vegan friends, you covered!) and this casein protein powder (anyone else, you covered!). I really loved it with the casein as it added such a thickness to it, but all tasted great!

HACK! For those who want to make it even lower carb and completely sugar-free, simply omit the maple syrup and follow the notes below.

Ingredients
  1. 3 scoops vanilla protein powder of choice (30-35 grams each)
  2. Pinch sea salt
  3. Pinch cinnamon
  4. 1/3 cup nut butter of choice (I used smooth cashew)
  5. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup*
  6. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  7. 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice
  8. Sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add your protein powder, sea salt and cinnamon and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Melt your nut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract and pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Mix until a thick, crumbly mixture is formed.
  3. Using a tablespoon at a time, add dairy free milk until a VERY thick, spreadable batter is formed. Stir through sprinkles and transfer to a sealed container. Refrigerate for at least an hour to firm up.
Notes
  1. * Can omit, however, you'll need to add extra granulated sweetener and the texture will be more gritty.
  2. Spread is best kept refrigerated.

  1. Dear Arman, this spread looks fun and wonderful…I am so intrigued by how you made it. My kids would love this! I do applaud you! Have a wonderful day my friend, Catherine

  2. I absolutely love sammiches! They are one of my favorite meals actually. And for a meal to be satisfying? Hmmm…it needs to involve mac and cheese and chocolate. But not together. Why would I ever put those together? Well done on this one, mate! Also, I think you missed a sprinkle under the table. You should clean that up.

  3. Am I a fan of sandwiches? That’s like asking if I’m a fan of wine…I could eat a sandwich every day. In fact, I can’t wait for lunch so I can pull out the sandwich I packed. My cake batter is usually eaten prior to actually baking the cake. Guess this recipe reduces the whole salmonella issue 😉

      1. OMG!! I make killer Paleo chocolate waffles that taste like cake This would be soooooo good on top and in between! You ROCK!! and you are a little bit crazy. I like that.

          1. Okay, so I made this with chocolate protein powder. It does taste like cake batter! I did use it on my chocolate waffles. Delish!! Ate leftovers out of the container with a spoon. Had a caramel flavor. Now I make it to eat as a snack. Added nuts and chocolate chips.

  4. You actually are a god and i make shrines to you every night.. or at least my collage of channing tatum serves dual purpose right? and i totally feel you with the need for protein!!! as much as i could eat (well.. on hard gluten free bread) a PB&J for every meal, i would never be satisfied! and plus who needs that when you can have a cake batter sandwich..

    P.s. like what have your photos become!? They are so glorious and your batter whipping skills are insane.. check out that SWIRL. and do you need a roommate in LA? i’ll bring the nut butters. you bring the cake. we’ll find the tatum.

  5. LOOK AT THAT FAT SPREAD! I love big globs of spreads on toast! Anyways, I used to be such a fan of grilled cheese but then I stopped liking sandwiches for years! Now I’m trying to reminisce by using healthier ingredients! This is a great recipe for making frosting too!

  6. This tastes delicious! But mine turned out all gloppy and gooey, not fluffy and beautiful like yours. I ended up adding a bunch of almond flour and making them into balls instead. How did you get it so fluffy? Also, all the sprinkle colors ran together and turned it this fleshy pink color. So now I have what looks like little meatballs. Any tips? I love your site and your recipes!

    1. Hi Mimi- It really depends on the protein powder you use and if you go the coconut flour route or almond flour route- I added a tonne of dairy free milk because the protein powder and coconut flour was so think. Regarding the sprinkles, I leave stir them through at the end- I also use the higher quality ones which I’ve found to not run through it 🙂

  7. Have you ever tried it with chocolate protein powder? I LOVE the vanilla as a dip for g/f pretzels and animal crackers! I’m taking it to a family reunion this weekend and thought it would be nice to have chocolate and vanilla….

  8. I found your blog a long time ago but haven’t made many of the recipes because you use lots of protein powder and I had yet to find one that actually tastes good. Until now…oh man I just got a 6lb bag of vanilla yesterday & I’m on your site all day at work just dyinggggg at everythingggggg. I’m so excited I could just die D: lolol

  9. If you don’t want to use protein powder/don’t have any on hand, is there anything you could replace it with and still have a similar texture?

    1. Hi Hannah! I’m sorry, I haven’t tried it without protein powder but using a blend of oat flour, coconut flour, maple syrup, nut butter and some milk to loosen up will work well 🙂

  10. just tried this and I’m literally licking the bowl clean right now. You’ve made my one addiction healthy

  11. Do you think subbing Agave instead of Maple syrup would work? Im not a big fan of maple, but I love agave! Thanks! I cant wait to make this!

  12. I never comment on stuff but this stuff was so delicious. I used sunflower seed butter and erithitol powder (which I mixed with the milk so it would dissolve, and part of a vanilla bean. It came out super thick and sticky like caramel almost. I have been eating it off a spoon and mixing it with desicated coconut and rolling it into little cookie balls. MMM

  13. I made this and it turned into a caramel basically. Its still really good but i wanted the spread like you made in your pics lol. Any suggestions on why it did that? I used peanut butter for the nut butter.

  14. I just made this and it didn’t turn out anywhere near as light as your mixture. But it was very good. I’m definitely going to try this again. I made mine with almond butter and 1/8 cup of honey to lower the carbs.

  15. I just so happened to find this recipe because I was looking for a protein filled spread for my Udi’s bagels. Can’t wait to try this!
