Take your cake game to the next level with these Easy Protein M&M Cake Jars! This high protein dessert recipe is not just easy to make but absolutely delicious, travel friendly, and packed with diet friendly macros!

Start this one out with a couple half pint mason jars (or bigger if you double the recipe) and a large mixing bowl to mix all of your ingredients in.

Don’t forget to buy the mason jars with lids and these become instantly travel friendly!

Add into your large bowl 1 large whole egg, 1 large egg white, 6 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1/2 of a banana, 1/8 cup of almond flour, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder, 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

Mix everything together until smooth. Using a hand mixer will make this step QUICK! This is the hand mixer I use.

Switch up the flavor of your protein M&M cake jars by using different protein powder flavors. Want a chocolate M&M cake jar? Use a chocolate protein and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.

Continue by lightly mixing in 1 tablespoon of mini baking M&M’s.

Coat your half pint mason jars with some non-stick cooking spray and evenly distribute your mix into them. Make sure not to fill your jars more than halfway full as they’ll rise during baking.

Top your protein M&M cake jars with a few more mini baking M&M’s or whatever else you want and put them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 25-30 minutes.

    Derek, can we substitute the coconut and almond flours for just regular flour?

  2. Felicia on November 6, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Do you have to use coconut and almond flour? Would regular flour or an oat flour work for this?
