Choc Chip Protein Cakes

Caroline’s Choc Chip Protein Cakes

Once in a while you need a treat. This tasty dessert is a finger-licking good cheat meal for those that are on a strict diet plan. For those that enjoy experimenting with protein dishes it’s a definite must try! This is undeniably a “healthy” cake and serves about 2 people if baked in ramekins. After entering all the ingredients to My Fitness Pal, it turns out that it’s 471 calories per serve. Please note that the ramekins I used are more for pies so I reckon if you half the serve that’s a better option. You can also choose to leave out the Choc Chips but that would make it a “chocolate protein cake”. I’m sure that’s tasty too! Ok enough about that, here’s what you need and how you make Caroline’s Choc Chip Protein Cakes.
