CHOCOLATE PROTEIN LAVA CAKE

WHAT YOU NEED:

1/2 Cup Chocolate Protein Powder

3 Tbsp. Coco Powder

2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup Oats (Gluten-Free or Regular)

2 Large Egg Whites

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!

PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN COOKIES

WHAT YOU NEED:

 

1 Cup Peanut Butter

⅔ Cup Coconut Sugar

2 Large Egg Whites

2 Scoops (1/2 Cup) Vanilla Protein Powder

Directions:

1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Place all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix until your consistency is like cookie dough. Depending on the thickness of your peanut butter, you may need to add a few more tablespoons of protein powder.

3. Spoon out 2 tablespoons of dough into your palms and roll into a ball. Flatten between your palms and place on a baking sheet. Use a fork to create classic peanut butter cookie criss-cross marks on your cookie.

4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.

5. Let cool for 10-15 minutes so that the cookies can harden!
