Low Carb & Low Fat Chocolate Whey Protein Cakes

Low Carb & Low Fat Chocolate Whey Protein Cakes

This is a really quick and easy recipe that’s perfect to make if you’re craving cake but want protein instead of something that’s high in calories, high in fat and low in nutrients. 


3 egg whites
1/2 cup chocolate whey protein powder
1/2 cup chocolate vegan protein powder blend 
1 cup semi-skimmed milk
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda


1. Blended together and baked at 160 degrees C (320 F) for about 40 minutes or until, when stabbed with a knife, the knife comes out clean.

2. When the cakes came out of the oven, dab each with a small (5g) square of 100% dark chocolate (this is optional but nice in the sense that you  get to bite into some rich bitter chocolate as you eat the cake, mmm). Let them cool before packing them up and slicing them so they could be filled.

Now, you’ll notice, by looking at the ingredients’ list, that the cakes lack a moisturiser (e.g. some cottage cheese, cream cheese, quark, cooked sweet potato, pumpkin puree or even a banana). For this reason, if we were to have eaten them solo, we would have found them a bit too dry and crumbly. It is precisely at this stage though that yogurt comes to save the day. You see, the yogurt filling is like a superhero here – it not only does away the issue of dryness, it makes dryness a good thing because it counter’s the yogurt’s own moisture creating a well-rounded final product.  What’s the filling? It’s Greek yogurt (about 125g) with a couple of tbsp (about 15g) of chocolate whey protein powder mixed in! It’s kind of the easiest cake filling and topping in the world, don’t you think? And virtually all protein too.
