Cookies and Cream Protein Cake – Recipe


This one was designed for my little brother Eddy as it has all his favourite things in it:  Dark Chocolate, Cookies and Cream Whey Protein Powder and Cashew Butter.

This cake is a big beast but no worries it freezes well and is great to share with friends.

Makes 10 slices

Macros per slice: 23.3g Fat, 13.6g Carbs, 4.2g Fiber, 37.3g Protein and 420 Calories


  • 400g aubergine
  • 200g Dark Chocolate (I use Green and Blacks 85%)
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 10 scoops of Cellucor Cookies and Cream Whey Protein Powder
  • 450g 0% Fat Greek Total Yoghurt
  • 170g Cashew Butter
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

You will need:

  • Pre heated oven to 160C non fan / 140c fan
  • 2 Large Mixing Bowls
  • Microwave
  • Cling Film
  • Electric Whisk
  • Scales / Measuring Spoons
  • Sharp Knife
  • Large Loose Bottomed Cake Tin
  • Spatula
  • Puncture the aubergines all over with a sharp knife.

  • Place in a bowl, cover with cling film, pop in the microwave on a high heat for 8 minutes

  • Whilst aubergine is in the microwave, break up your dark chocolate into small pieces

  • When aubergine is cooked, remove from bowl, throw away excess water and peel them with a sharp knife

  • When peeled, blend aubergine into a smooth paste.

  • Pop dark chocolate pieces into the bowl aubergines were cooked in, so chocolate starts to melt

  • Mix the aubergine and dark chocolate together thoroughly and until chocolate has melted.  If necessary pop mix back into microwave for 30 seconds

  • Crack your eggs into a clean mixing bowl

  • Add your protein powder to the eggs

  • Add your cashew butter and greek yoghurt to the mixing bowl

  • Mix in thoroughly with an electric whisk

  • So it looks like this when all combined

  • Add the aubergine and chocolate mix to the mixing bowl.  Add your baking powder. Mix thoroughly with an electric whisk

  • Until you have a gorgeous cake batter

  • Prepare a large loose bottomed cake tin.  I find Dr Oetkers Cake release spray fabulous for this. Bake in the oven at 160C for a non fan oven or 140C for a fan oven for 35-45 minutes.  You will know cake is done when it has risen and you have placed a skewer into the middle and it comes back out clean

  • Leave to cool down completely in tin

  • Remove from tin and enjoy!

    This cake keeps well in an air tight container in the fridge but also freezes well.
