Bake Your Shake - Dark Chocolate 'Cheesecake' Bites

Dark Chocolate 'Cheesecake' Bites are delicious and great as a snack you can eat on the go. It is a kind of 'solid' form of a post-workout protein shake, that avoids messing around with protein powder, water and shaker bottle in the gym. This is another recipe from my 'BAKE YOUR SHAKE' series; quick, easy, minimal ingredient, protein powder treat recipes



- 300-320 g Chocolate Protein Cream (see note)

- 100 g defatted almond flour

- 10 g/ 2-3 small squares dark chocolate


  1. Combine ‘Chocolate Protein Cream’ and almond to obtain sticky dough.
  2. Roll out between two baking paper sheets (make it easier because of stickiness)
  3. Bake at 180C/ 350F for 10-15 min.
  4. Take the ‘cake’ out of the oven and spread chocolate over the hot cake (e.g. use a fork to slide chocolate pieces over the cake)
  5. Cut in 8 pieces.

Gives 8 pieces.

If you use flavoured protein powder, that is sweetened and contains thickeners (such as xanthan gum), you can make a ‘Protein Cream” by adding a small amout of liquid to obtain a thick cream.
