Kimmayco Chows Down: Chocolate Protein Cakes

We love cakes! We can eat cakes all day errrhhhhhday! So we had to have a healthy option to snack on from time to time. The one made below only has sugars from fruits in it. It also has a bit of a protein boost to help protect our muscles because girls have muscles too! Standard Procedure!

Chocolate Protein cakes

Recipe makes 12 cakes! What you need:

- Blender
- Two mixing bowls

Dry Ingredients
- 1 Cup of Oats
- 2 scoops of Vanilla protein powder (I used Sun Warrior brown rice vegan protein powder)
- 3 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder (I use raw cacao powder)
- 1/2 tsp Baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- pinch of sea salt

Wet Ingredients *pause*
- 4 egg whites
- 2 Ripe Bananas
- 25 drops of liquid stevia ( this is equivalent to about 1tsp of powdered stevia or 4 tablespoons of sugar if you want to make a sugary version!)

1) Blend the Oats to make oat flour. While you’re blending pre-heat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (347 degrees Fahrenheit)

2) Add oat flour and all the dry ingredients into one mixing bowl, mix ingredients.

3) Blend the ripe bananas into a banana puree.

4) Add banana puree and all wet ingredients into a separate mixing bowl, mix ingredients.

5) Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix!

6) Line a baking tray with baking paper or grease with virgin coconut oil. Add mixture.

7) Bake for 20 minutes. If you can stick a knife in the cake and the knife comes out clean you’re ready! If not put it back in for another 5-10 minutes.

8) Serve plain or top with some Almond butter and dark chocolate chips- YUM!

  • [...] Oats are great for keeping you full for longer- therefore helping maintaining your weight. In the recipe I mentioned whole rolled oats- this is a must. Do not use quick cook oats. Whole rolled oats have a low GI (Glycemic Index) meaning your body takes longer to break them down. The longer your body takes to break down foods the more steady the flow of energy your body gets. Quick cook oats are high GI as they are easy for our bodies to break down, therefore giving your body a big energy spike. If you don’t use this energy straight away your body is more likely to convert it into fat to use in the future! Check out the Food & Lycra healthy chocolate oat protein cake recipe. [...]
