Gluten-Free Molten Lava Cake Recipe

High Protein, No Gluten, All Good: Molten Lava Cake

Why indulge on empty calories when your dessert can do a little work for you? This high-protein molten lava cake is hiding a muscle-building secret — over 20 grams of protein! The trick is to add pieces of your favourite protein bar into the chocolatey mix, as well as a scoop of protein powder. Celebrity trainer Holly Perkins, who created this recipe, recommends using a lower-sugar protein bar from Promax (she is an ambassador for the brand); this helps keep the sugar levels down.

Notes

You can use any chocolate protein bar and protein powder you'd like; the amount of protein and calories in this dessert will vary based on what brand you use. For best results, use baking spray that contains flour.

Gluten-Free Molten Lava Cake Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 small chocolate-flavoured protein bar (Holly recommends using 2/3 of a full-size Promax LS Chocolate Fudge Bar, or one full snack-sized bar)
  2. 3 tablespoons coconut or almond milk
  3. 3 tablespoons dark chocolate pieces, plus more to top if desired
  4. 2 tablespoons oat flour
  5. 1 large egg
  6. 2 tablespoons protein powder
  7. Nonstick baking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/ 180 Fan/ 200°C.
  2. Chop the protein bar into small, bite-size pieces.
  3. Combine coconut or almond milk and dark chocolate pieces in a glass bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute or less, until gently melted.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together oat flour, egg, and protein powder. Do not overmix. Add a splash of water if necessary to create a thick, pudding-like texture.
  5. Add the melted milk and chocolate mixture. Whisk to combine, but do not overmix.
  6. Spray two ramekins with nonstick baking spray, and fill them about 2/3 up with batter.
  7. Place the chopped protein bar pieces in the batter in each ramekin. Add a few more dark chocolate pieces for a richer chocolate flavour, if desired.
  8. Put remaining (about 1 spoonful) of batter on top, to cover the pieces.
  9. Bake at 400°F/ 180 Fan/ 200°C for 10 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.
