Michelle’s Chocolate Protein Cake

Michelle’s Chocolate Protein Cake

I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes.  Many times when you are following a food plan you are looking for some kind of treat.  This cake is so great, hot or cold and you actually feel like you are cheating. The wonder slim I use in this I use for many things, has no sugar, only a few carbs and a few calories.  It also has no fat and gives everything a rich chocolate taste if you are a chocolate lover like me.   Enjoy!!

1 C. Gluten free Oat flour (you can grind up in blender if you have the oats)
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice (You can use cinnamon if you don’t have this)
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 scoop chocolate protein powder ( I like the Only Protein.  No artificial sweeteners)
1 scoop wonder slim chocolate (this can be purchased on amazon and is cheap, I use for many things)
3 egg whites or 3 oz egg whites in a carton
¾ C. Xylitol
½ C. Fat free or low fat Ricotta Cheese (see what you can find the fat free is hard to find)
1 C. Grated zucchini (I put this in my bullet and add a little water and grind up)
Non fat stick spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8X8 pan with the non stick spray.
Mix first 7 ingredients in a bowl and whisk. In a separate bowl mix the remaining ingredients and whisk.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk well.  Pour in to an 8×8 pan and bake for 30 min or until tooth pick comes out clean.  Let cool and cut into 16 4×4 pieces

2 squares give you.
