Here’s a fun fact about me: my family is from Louisana!
So even though I’ve lived in Houston most of my life, I always celebrated Mardi Gras every year.
Then as a French student we even celebrated in school as the teacher brought king cake for us on Mardi Gras–when I became a French teacher myself I got to continue on the tradition.
If you’ve never had king cake before, here’s a link to the king cake mix my mom uses to make our real king cake every year!
To create this protein king cake, I used the dough from Laurenfitfoodie’s protein cinnamon roll recipe. It wouldn’t be fair of me to repost her recipe here–did you know food bloggers make money just from people visiting their blogs?? You don’t have to do or click anything, just visit the website 🙂
So you’ll have to head over to Lauren’s blog for the directions on how to make the cinnamon roll dough, but I list the ingredients and the rest of the instructions here:
Lauren Fit Foodie’s recipe for protein cinnamon rolls can be found here.
