Chocolate Protein Lava Cake Recipe

Chocolate Protein Lava Cake Is the Decadent Dessert of Your Health-Loving Dreams

Ooey-gooey molten chocolate lava cake is one of the most indulgent desserts you can make — for your valentine or for yourself! But how do you make it healthy?

Some tips from the wizards at Tone It Up and Perfect Fit Protein: swap regular flour for coconut flour and protein powder and use dark chocolate — lots of dark chocolate. This gluten-free, dairy-free recipe uses natural ingredients for sweetness, like coconut sugar, orange juice, and dark chocolate chips. The tangy, sweet, rich combination of flavors makes this protein-packed dessert as decadent as it is good for you.
