Protein Packed Lava Cakes

Posted by Overstock Drugstore on 16th Jul 2015

Just as delicious, moist, and rich as regular lava cake, yet it's remarkably lower in calories, higher in protein, gluten-free, and packed with nutritional goodness. 


Ingredients

►1/2 cup chocolate whey protein powder

►3 tbsp cocoa powder

►2 tbsp coconut oil

►1/4 cup oats (gluten-free or regular)

►1 whole large egg

►1/4 cup almond or coconut milk

►2-3 tbsp crystallized coconut nectar or plain coconut sugar (I used 19 g)

►1/2 cup

►3 tbsp cocoa powder

►2 tbsp coconut oil

►1/4 cup oats (gluten-free or regular)

►1 whole large egg

►1/4 cup almond or coconut milk

►2-3 tbsp crystallized coconut nectar or plain coconut sugar (I used 19 g)

Directions


  1. Using a handheld blender or food processor, blend all ingredients together until you get a creamy batter.
  2. Pour the mix into two silicone baking pods or regular souffle dishes. Just bear in mind that, if you're using souffle dishes, you'll have to butter them so the mix doesn't stick.
  3. Bake at 356 F (180 C) for no more than 4 minutes. You want the top to be cooked but the center to be gooey, so check on you cakes after 3 minutes and assess accordingly.
  4. As soon as they're ready, carefully remove them from the mold and turn them upside down on a plate.
  5. Top with strawberries, cream, MCT powder, or just enjoy them solo!

Note: You can also just cook the mix inside silicone muffin tins! Obviously they won't look like lava cakes, but they'll be pretty delicious.
