This recipe contains only four ingredients and man if you love dark chocolate it will set your tastebuds on fire. It’s the kind of thing that you’d expect to be served in a restaurant after ordering the A Chocolate Lover’s Dream! A Moist and Rich Dark Chocolate Cake with a Luxuriously Smooth Dark Chocolate Center… or something of the sort 😉 especially if you accompany it with vanilla (protein) ice cream! It’s seemingly Indulgent, but, when you look at its ingredients, you realize it’s actually pretty magical, packed as it is with chocolate antioxidants, phytosterols, and protein!
3/4 cup (pasteurized) liquid egg whites
1/2 cup chocolate vegan protein powder
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons 100% cocoa powder
1. Blend together
2. One thing we want you to take in when you make this recipe is that cooking times matter. If you overcook the batter, you cakes will turn dry and not very nice. If you undercook the batter, inside coffee mugs (heat resistant ones) in the oven for, say, 8-10 minutes at 180 C (356 F), you’ll end up with the world’s most delicious protein hot chocolate!

I’m trying it now! Lets see how this comes out 🙂
Put mine in muffin tin. We shall see…..
Awesome! Just keep an eye on it so it doesn’t overcook! Take it out while it’s still slightly wet in the center to allow for a consistency like mine (mushy and kind of creamy) 🙂
Hey, Anna, what is the best sub for vegan protein? Can we use casein instead?
Casein would be the best suited, yeah 🙂
Hi Anna trying this tonight, always have the issue with cups and weight, I have the American cups but when when I way half a cup of powder I get about 55grams..what best to go by? ( what do you do?!) xx
What type of protein powder are you using?
The only thing that I’m concerned about is that I always thought you weren’t supposed to cook or heat up protein powder…. Is it okay to cook certain types??
I talked about that here http://www.proteinpow.com/p/denaturing.html
I used a vegan brown rice choc one by rawlicious – figured it was closer to the vegan one then my whey and I added a spoon of hemp and pea protein and squished it into the cup to pack it out – 55g!
I must have used a heaping spoon then I reckon, it’s fine though either will do the job nicely.
can i use whey for this one? i have vanilla, maybe add some extra cocoa powder?
No, whey won’t work. Casein maybe, but not whey. Definitely best with a veggie powder.
I’m dairy free and made it slightly different. I used “SunWarrior” protein instead of “Vegan Blend” because I can’t find the latter in the USA. It’s sweetened with stevia (which loses some sweetness when baked I find) and not super chocolaty, so I’ve added 2 tbsp of maple syrup to the mix and another tbsp of the cacao power. The consistency came out great but still not as sweet as I’ve hoped. Next time I’ll use even more maple syrup and cacao. Also, it rose a lot and spilled out of the mug so make sure to leave it about 25% empty and place over a cookie sheet just in case. Thanks for the recipe Anna!
