Chocolate Protein Cake Recipe

  • 250g Strong Wholemeal Flour
  • 70g Cacao Powder
  • 3 Medium Eggs
  • 5 tbsp Apple Sauce (baby food or no added sugar)
  • 25g Soft Pitted Dates or (Dried Sultanas Soaked in hot water)

Chocolate Protein Cake Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven on to 180°C.
  2. To a large bowl add flour, coco powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, granulated sweetener and milk protein smooth, give them a stir
  3. In a separate bowl melt the coconut oil and add the dates mix together and blend with a hand blender into a paste (or mash with a fork)
  4. add the apple sauce, eggs, Flavdrops, 100ml of the milk and pour over the dry ingredients

Note: If it still feels thick add a little water. You are aiming for the mix to drop off the spoon in a lump not dribble – that is too wet, so if that happens just put in a little more flour.

  1. Add the coconut and date mixture and beat everything together
  2. Once everything is mixed together, pour the mixture into the tin and place in the oven for 20-35 minutes until it has risen and you can stick a stew in the middle without it being covered in mixture.
  3. This cake will only last 3 days unless refrigerated or 3 months frozen
