High-protein chocolate soufflé
These high-protein chocolate soufflés are a delicious treat that can be enjoyed as a dessert or even as a special breakfast option. They offer a good amount of protein from Greek yogurt and egg whites while satisfying your chocolate cravings. Enjoy!
- 4 egg whites
- 1/4 cup (60g) granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup (120g) high-protein chocolate powder or cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup (60ml) unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk of your choice)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Cooking spray or butter, for greasing the ramekins
- Powdered sugar or cocoa powder, for dusting (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease four 6-ounce (180ml) ramekins with cooking spray or butter. Place them on a baking sheet and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the high-protein chocolate powder or cocoa powder and almond milk until well combined and smooth.
Add the Greek yogurt and vanilla extract to the chocolate mixture, and whisk until fully incorporated. Set aside.
In a separate clean bowl, using an electric mixer or a whisk, beat the egg whites and salt until frothy. Gradually add the granulated sugar while continuing to beat, until stiff peaks form. The mixture should be glossy and hold its shape.
Gently fold one-third of the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture, using a spatula or a whisk, until well combined. This will help lighten the chocolate mixture.
Carefully fold in the remaining egg white mixture, being careful not to overmix and deflate the batter. The mixture should be light and airy.
Divide the soufflé batter evenly among the prepared ramekins, filling them about three-quarters full.
Place the baking sheet with the ramekins in the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the soufflés have risen and the tops are set. The centers should still be slightly gooey.
Remove the soufflés from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. They will start to deflate slightly as they cool.
Dust the tops of the soufflés with powdered sugar or cocoa powder, if desired. Serve immediately while they are still warm and enjoy!
