Who doesn't like cake!?! Especially one that's packed with protein! If you like almond flavor, you'll love this little personal cake!


  • 3 Tablespoons almond meal/flour
  • 3 Tablespoons vanilla whey protein
  • Β½ Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Pinch salt
  • 1 Tablespoon applesauce(I used apples & blueberries baby food)
  • Β½ Tablespoons coconut oil
  • Β½ Teaspoons pure almond extract
  • 2 Teaspoons light agave nectar
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 2 Teaspoons sprinkles(optional)
  • whipped cream(optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Here is what you need. Feel free to exchange ingredients to meet your dietary needs. I've made this cake in several ways. Examples: white flour instead of almond flour, all oil - no applesauce, etc.

    Step 2

    Add all of the ingredients except the coconut oil to a small mixing bowl.

    Step 3

    Place the coconut oil in a small microwaveable bowl and cook for about 8 - 10 seconds.

    Step 4

    Put it in a few seconds longer if needed until melted.

    Step 5

    Add the oil to the bowl of ingredients and mix until well combined. Save a tiny bit of the oil to coat a small ramekin.

    Step 6

    Take the little bit of oil and coat a small ramekin.

    Step 7

    Add the batter to the ramekin.

    Step 8

    Cook for about 1 minute. Times are going to vary so keep an eye on it. I had to stop mine after 45 seconds. Then put it in again for another 10 - 15 seconds. It's very HOT, so be careful!

    Step 9

    Let it cool a little bit then you can eat it right out of the ramekin or take a knife and loosen the sides and transfer it to a serving dish to decorate with whipped cream 😁

    Step 10

    I don't usually put whipped cream on my protein cake, but every once in awhile I want to SPLURGE! πŸ˜πŸŽ‰

    Step 11

    Yummy whipped cream!! 😍

    Step 12

    Decorate your cake with whipped cream(not the greatest decorating job, I know). 😜

    Step 13

    Eat your cake...

    Step 14

    Enjoy to the very last bite! 😁 *note: nutrition info in next step does not include sprinkles or whipped cream.
