For High Protein Chocolate Bites

  • For the layer:
  • ¾ c. 80 g old fashioned oats
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ c. 50 g almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. 5 g cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. 20 g stevia
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

For the mousse

  • ¾ c. 150 g plain Greek yogurt, 2%
  • ¾ c. 150 g ricotta cheese, fat reduced
  • 30 g. dark chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp. 5 g cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. 10 g stevia or 0 cal. sweetener (to taste)
  • tsp. 5 g unflavored gelatin
  • ¼ c. 50 g almond milk


For the layer

  • Heat the oven to 350 F.
  • 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.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the layer; mix thoroughly.
  • Spread the batter into prepared pan and bake for about 25 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Do not remove from the pan!

For the mousse

  • In a small microwave-safe bowl combine the unflavored gelatin and almond milk and let bloom for 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, place Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, sweetener, and cocoa powder into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • In another small microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth.
  • Put the bowl with the gelatin into a microwave for about 10 sec. until the gelatin is completely melted.
  • 10. Place the melted chocolate and melted gelatin into the blender with mousse mixture, and blend again to combine.
  • 11. Pour the mousse over the cake in an even layer. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight.
  • 12. 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.
  • 13. Dust with additional cocoa powder then cut into small bites and enjoy!
