Recipe: Klean Protein Double Chocolate Cake

This recipe is not just for your standard chocolate cake. It’s for a double chocolate cake containing 6g of protein, 3g of fibre and more than 12% of your daily value (DV) of vitamin C in every slice. Now that’s what we call a chocolate cake.

If you enjoy your slice of chocolate cake with a glass of skimmed milk, this can be an ideal postworkout recovery snack, especially if you consume it 30-60 minutes after the end of your workout.

Spotlight On: Chocolate Protein Powder

Klean Isolate (Natural Chocolate Flavour) is a key ingredient in this delicious decadent chocolate cake. Chocolate protein powder can be a great way to get a sweet chocolate hit and essential protein and amino acids all in one, helping athletes to enhance pre-and post-workout shakes, smoothies and baking recipes.

Klean Athlete’s chocolate whey isolate protein powder is NSF Certified for Sport®, so you can be sure that it doesn’t contain anything your body doesn’t need. The NSF Certified for Sport® programme is designed to protect against the adulteration of products, verify all label claims and identify any athletic-banned substances, so you can focus on fuelling your foundation in the best possible way.

Dry ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

  • 120g dried, pitted prunes
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 250g unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80g dark chocolate chips

Optional toppings:

  • 40g dark chocolate chips
  • 38g chopped nuts
  • Fat-free whipped cream


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and spray a nine-inch square cake tin with cooking spray.
  • Blend the old-fashioned oats in a food processor to make flour, then mix with the rest of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Clean out the food processor, then add the prunes, water, apple sauce and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then add 80g of chocolate chips, stirring until evenly distributed.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin and sprinkle chocolate chips or chopped nuts on top of the batter.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes – the cake is thick, but you want to retain a moist centre.
  • Allow to cool for 15 minutes before tucking in, with optional fat-free whipped cream.
