Protein Coffee Cake

I loved coffee cake when I was little. It was a staple dessert whenever my grandmother had people over for dinner. Like traditional coffee cake, there is no coffee used in this recipe. It actually tastes more like a cinnamon cake with a hint of coffee flavor. Perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert!

Protein Coffee Cake

Serves 8


2 scoop Cafe Mocha protein powder by Dymnatize Elite  (or other coffee flavored protein powder)
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup millet flour (could also probably use whole wheat flour)
1/4 cup granulated stevia
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 oz. 0% Total Fage Greek yogurt
1/3 cup skim milk
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon butter extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Blend ingredients together (I used my cheap blender from Target).
3. Pour batter into a round cake pan.
4. Bake 25 minutes, or until knife comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack or a plate to cool.

If you'd like to add a frosting (my design skills were lacking on this one), add a big scoop of Greek yogurt and a few drops of liquid stevia to a small plastic ziplock bag. Mix well (basically massage the yogurt). Cut the bottom tip of the plastic bag to form a very small hole. Squeeze all the yogurt down towards the hole and pretend your a real baker with a fancy frosting tool. Make sure the cake is completely cooled before you do this or the yogurt will melt!! Store leftovers in the fridge.
