Finally, an evening dessert I can feel good about eating. These grain-free, gluten-free cakes have 15 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and under 100 calories. I know I’ll stay satisfied until bedtime and get my chocolate fix.
  • 2 tablespoon non-flavored hemp protein powder or other protein powder *see note
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened apple sauce
  • 10 drops liquid stevia or ½ tablespoon honey or other sweetener
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Drop mixture into a ~250mL (1 cup) oven safe ramekin. I purchased a bunch at Superstore for $1 each!
  4. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
If you have chocolate protein powder, replace the hemp protein and cocoa powder with 3 tablespoon protein powder.
