Single Serve Chocolate Protein Muffin

by Eat

Single serve cakes are one of my favourite things to make at the moment. There’s usually minimal ingredients involved, and if you’re a single person like me, you won’t be left to eat 11 more of the same thing day after day.

Plus you can customise it with all of your favourite toppings! I love adding a few choc chips on top, or spoonful of peanut butter in between the two layers of batter.

The use of protein powder will help you stay fuller for longer and keep you powering through until your next meal. If you make this be sure to tag me on Instagram with your creations @sarahlizking

Single Serve Chocolate Protein Muffin


  • 30g Chocolate Pea Protein Powder
  • 10g almond meal or GF oats
  • 1 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp GF baking powder
  • 1 large medjool date
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of almond milk
  • Optional extras: chocolate chips, cacao nibs, spoonful of nut butter or jam


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celcius and grease a small ceramic dish with coconut oil.
  2. In a small blender, combine pea protein, almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder and medjool date. Pulse until mixed evenly.
  3. Add the egg and a splash of almond milk. Process again for 20 – 30 seconds adding more almond milk as necessary to get a smooth cake batter texture.
  4. Pour half the cake batter into the greased ceramic dish. Add spoonful of jam or nut butter or other toppings if using. Then spoon remaining batter on top.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until just cooked through.
  6. Allow to cool 10 minutes then dive in and enjoy!


If you spend far too much time and energy thinking about your next meal, get down on yourself for having more than your daily allocated share of dark chocolate, or feel stuck in the binge-restrict cycle and are ready to reclaim your health, passions and life then the Body Freedom Academy is right for you.

This 6-week program with me is designed to transform your mindset through gentle, intuitive eating principles that set you up for a sustainable positive relationship with food and body.
