Dark Chocolate Protein Cake

This was kind of an improvisation but oy! it turned out amazing! Really moist and light and chocolatey and mmmm *sigh*.


140g egg whites (4 or 5 egg’s worth)
1 whole egg
2 tablespoons 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
44g hemp protein powder (you could use another powder if you don’t have hemp)
1 heaping scoop chocolate whey protein powder
ne can unsalted organic aduki beans
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda


Blend all the ingredients and bake at a medium heat until a chopstick (or a knife/fork) comes out clean. That’s IT!

But, you ask, why aduki (aka adZuki) beans instead of the regular black beans? 

Well, adukis are great because they:

a. are higher in protein (for 100g of black beans you get 6gs of protein whereas for 100g of adukis, you get 9s) 

b. have a milder kind of *milkier* taste than black beans when added to chocolate (OK, not really milky per se but you know what I mean (right?)).

Bear in mind that this is a DARK chocolate cake and all its sweetness basically comes from the chocolate whey. If you like your cakes a bit (or a lot) sweeter, go ahead and sweeten it up with whatever floats your boat.
