This week my blog is being looked after by Malika from Everything’s Better Sprouted and so she has put together one of her mouth- watering recipes for us that is healthy, tasty, and quick to make. Her chocolate protein lava cake is an awesome high protein treat to have after a training session when your craving something sweet. Super delicious you will think your totally undoing all that training but instead you are actually refuelling your body with the protein it needs.
A little intro about this recipe from Malika:
I’m always trying to find ways to healthily my favourite foods! That is how this cake was created. I wanted to make a chocolate cake with extra protein and only good wholesome ingredients. I love hemp protein powder because its easy to digest, its made form plants and its minimally processed. Its not a super sweet cake but it is decadent. The dark chocolate inside will curb your sweet tooth for sure! I used a nice local organic chocolate from Denman Island because I love supporting local businesses. I eat lots of fruit and veggies but sometimes you just need a chocolate treat in your life! Enjoy. 🙂
