Do you long for a sweet treat like chocolate mousse or cheesecake? Then here is the perfect high protein, low fat sweet treat or dessert!
This is a super simple recipe I quickly put together purely because I really felt like a cheesecake or similar but without the guilt.
You could use any flavoured mousse, however I love chocolate and its what I had in the cupboard. With a mouthful of flavour and sweetness this was the perfect dessert to tickle those taste buds.
You can make your layers thicker by using smaller ramekins or doubling the mixture. My recipe made 2 serves.
Although I used specific ingredients you can find your own fat free, low sugar options.
I would make it the same day as you consume it. This keeps the egg whites fluffy. I took these photos the next day so they were a lot fuller and fluffier than pictured.
- 1 Cup homemade granola (recipe under breakfasts)
- 2 serves chocolate protein mix
- 2 tblsp coconut oil
- 4 egg whites
- sprinkle cocao
- Optional: 1-2 tsp organic stevia powder
Grind your homemade granola in a blender so it resembles a breadcrumb consistency.
Line 2 ramekins with baking paper. (It makes removing it a lot easier)
Melt your coconut oil then mix into grinded granola. (Add more if needed. Check this by pressing down with the back of a spoon to see if it binds. This is because your granola may contain less fruits etc).
Divide your granola mixture in half and then press down into the bottom of your ramekins. Place in fridge whilst making the mousse.
Mix your mousse to a thick consistency as per your package instructions.
Spoon your mousse mixture gently over the granola base, Place in fridge to set.
Separate your egg using only the egg whites. Save your yolks for another recipe.
Beat your egg whites until soft and fluffy and form peaks.
Add organic stevia powder, 1/3 tsp at a time and beat in.
Spoon egg mix gently on top of chocolate mouse. You can use the back of a spoon to gently create peaks by touching it and lifting your spoon.
Lightly sprinkle with cocao, nutmeg, cinnamon, whatever you prefer.
Allow to set for a few hours.
Best eaten on the day, however will last a few days before egg whites start to dry out.
A super simple recipe everyone will enjoy!
