Today, Anna from Protein Pow(d)er gives us a very easy, very delicious recipe using hemp protein powder. As you know, GOOD Hemp kindly support my sporting endeavours, so I’m delighted to give you a variety of ways to use their products. I’ve got a recipe series up my sleeve, but I have to say this recipe from Anna is a fantastic one to kick us off! I urge to to try this… it’s fantastic.
When Nicola asked me whether I’d like to write a guest post, my first thought was ‘HELL YEAH!’ See, I’m a massive fan of her blog (and her absolute awesomeness! she’s a jaw-dropping champ and, as you guys already know, a tremendously inspiring person) so it was definite GO from me from the beginning. Knowing that Nicola is also a big fan of chocolate hemp protein powder, I thought it’d be appropriate to make a protein cake using it :-)))))
I love making protein cakes because they are so absurdly easy (you just blend everything together and, if you want, add some protein frosting) and, alongside a cup of coffee? Well, well, well *sigh* the whole thing can be quite disarming 😀 Anyways, without further ado, here’s the recipe:
Chocolate protein cake with coconut vanilla frosting
1 medium sweet potato (111g)
3/8 cups of chocolate hemp protein powder (56g)
1 cup liquid egg whites (170g)
1/4 cup cocoa (20g)
1 medjool date (pitted)
3/8 cups of milk (75g)
1tsp of baking powder
1 tbsp quark (23g)
1/4 cup of dissecated coconut
1 scoop of vanilla whey (20g)
bit of water (or milk)
Mix all the cake ingredients together using a blender.
Bake at 160 degrees C for about 35 minutes (until a knife comes out clean.)
Take it out and let it cool.
When cool, mix together the frosting ingredients and top the baby up 🙂
Macros per 1 slice if you slice it into 4: 208kcals, 21g protein, 14g carbo (6g sugars), 7.8g fat (4g sat) and 5g fiber!
Yum, yum, thanks Anna! I have a few recipes of my own – using chocolate hemp – to share soon, lots of them inspired by your kitchen adventures!
