I have not posted a recipe on here in a long time so I thought I better start baking!
Like most my recipes, I try to add a healthy spin to the common dessert but when it turns out looking like this.........even those who don't normally bake "healthy" desserts won't mind.
I have to say, this is a CRAZY tasting chocolate treat that can be baked in a single serving in the microwave - what more can you ask for!
Did I mention that each ONE serving is under 300 calories AND full of protein! (a whopping 27.5 grams) A 4 oz chicken breast has 36 grams.
OK, I'll stop tempting you with pictures and give you guys the recipe. :-)
Molten Lava Chocolate Protein Cake
1/4 c. oat flour (just blended up oatmeal)
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
22 grams (usually one scoop) Chocolate Whey Protein
NuNatruals Stevia Powder or Stevia drops to taste (if using packets try 2)
dash of salt
1/4 c No Sugar Applesauce
1/4 c egg whites (from a carton is easy)
1 Tbsp Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 tsp vanilla
16 mini chocolate chips (either put IN the mixture or save for the top)
spray coconut oil in jar or mug
(for those that are adventurous - try adding a tbsp of chia seeds or coconut flakes and letting it sit a bit - DELICIOUS!)
Each microwave will be different but if I want it cake like I cook it for 90 seconds, if you want it like molten lava (which I MUCH prefer) cook around 60 seconds. Watch that it doesn't overflow though!
Nutritional Information - 1 serving
Protein: 27.6 grams
This is cooked only 60 seconds....ahhh, I want to eat this right now! :-)
Since I am talking about healthy but yummy food, one of the benefits of blogging is that companies will send samples of their food/products for me to try. I just got a stack of D'vida protein smoothie mixes. I tried Pina Colada and Strawberry Banana so far - Super Yummy! ;-)

Let me know if you try the molten lava cake and leave me a comment! Even if you mix it up and try a variation. I'd love to hear about it.
