5. Chocolate Protein Lava Cake

Let’s all stare at that molten cake center. Don’t you just want to eat the screen?! This lava-licious protein cake is made with “chocolate protein powder.” They don’t specify which one, and that drives me nuts! But usually that means chocolate whey, so I’ll recommend my favorite, ON natural chocolate. It’s a pretty easy recipe, especially for how fancy it looks. Give it a try!


6. Ganache Frosted Custard Cake

This one is from my blog bestie, Paige. Her blog is full of healthier baked goods and meals, including lots of protein dessert deliciousness! This one uses Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder, which is a combination of whey and casein – a great combo for baking!

10. Meyer Lemon Protein Cheesecake with Honey Hemp Crust
