How to Make High Protein Chocolate Bites

For the layer

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with a parchment paper. (Cut a length of parchment paper long enough to line the bottom of the pan with extra hanging over the sides).

P.S. I recommend using a square springform or adjustable pastry frame for this recipe and for any mousse cake recipes.

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the layer; mix thoroughly.
  2. Spread the batter into prepared pan and bake for about 25 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Do not remove from the pan!

For the mousse

  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl combine the unflavored gelatin and almond milk and let bloom for 5 min.
  2. Meanwhile, place Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, sweetener, and cocoa powder into a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. In another small microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth.
  4. Put the bowl with the gelatin into a microwave for about 10 sec. until the gelatin is completely melted.
  5. Place the melted chocolate and melted gelatin into the blender with mousse mixture, and blend again to combine.
  6. Pour the mousse over the cake in an even layer. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight.
  7. Once the cake is set, remove it carefully (by holding for the edges of the parchment paper) from the pan and transfer onto a plate.
  8. Dust with additional cocoa powder then cut into small bites and enjoy!
