Healthy Dessert – Chocolate Cake With Protein Powder

13 Feb

This recipe is quick, easy and produces delicious results with minimum effort.  This is what I’ll be making for desert tomorrow!

When I saw this recipe from The Melody of Cooking last week I just had to try it.  Every ingredient is very healthy and this is something I can eat without feeling guilty.

This is what I used to make this cake:

  • 1 tbsp chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp wholewheat flour
  • 1 tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tbsp raw organic honey
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Place it in a larger pan with water in it, just halfway up the outside of the bowl. This will allow the cake to cook more slowly and evenly.
  4. Bake it for 20 min.


  1. 2 tbsp peanut butter 
  2. 1 tbsp plain organic yoghurt

Top it with some sliced strawberries and other berries you like and serve it to your significant other.

    I should try this out for my boyfriend! He takes this protein powder stuff for workout..and I’m sure applying it to chocolate cakes which are his faves will be perfect 🙂

    Hi Kat, looks so yummy. I’ve baked custard in a bath like that before but never a cake. I like that there are many ingredients and it’s frosted. Where do you buy protien powder?

      I used Arbonne Essentials chocolate vitamin/mineral mix. Any health food store would carry protein powder; or even supermarkets that have a health food section will have it.
