Protein Lava Cake Recipe

with a molten salted-caramel core

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
Bog-standard cakes are never moist or creamy enough for you? We hear you. This protein lava cake takes it to the next level with a molten, melty core of salty caramel. The delicate salty notes bring the famous lava cake to the next level. Now our amazing Salted Caramel Protein Cream can be a star not only for breakfast, but also for dessert!


  • Ingredients:
    Scoop the Protein Cream out, one teaspoon at a time, onto a a small plate, a small chocolate mold, or a plastic food-safe box. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Ingredients:
    0.5 tsp Coconut oil
    Grease six muffin cups with a bit of coconut oil.
  • Ingredients:
    125 g Instant Oats, 25 g almond flour, 15 g Whey Protein Chocolate, 35 g stevia, 15 g cocoa powder, 2 tsp Flavour Kick Chocolate, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 pinch salt
    Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Ingredients:
    160 ml oat milk, 80 g unsweetened applesauce
    Now add the remaining ingredients. Stir well to create a smooth batter.
  • Distribute ¾ of the batter evenly between the six muffin cups.
  • Use your hands to roll each Protein Cream teaspoon into a ball. Press into the middle of the batter in each muffin cup and cover with the remaining batter.
  • Bake the protein lava cakes at 180°C for 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove the lava cakes from their cups carefully. Serve hot or warm for the lava effect.
  • Top with ice cream, powdered sugar, or whipped cream as desired.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip: Vegan Lava Cake Recipe

Knock your friends' socks off at your next dinner party, and don't leave anyone out of the flavor train. Swap the Whey Protein for the same amount of Chocolate Vegan Protein, and whip up the cake's filling with Vegan Protein Cream instead of salted caramel.
