Arwa (@bakeswith_a) shared the recipe with over 1.1 million TikTok followers.
The 20-year-old chef explained that she had lost 77 pounds in her profile bio, an account dedicated to sharing “high protein and calorie deficit recipes.”
To make the lava cake, she started off with 15 grams of oat flour, 5 grams of cocoa powder, and 10 grams of protein powder.
Next, she added in a low-sugar sweetener of her choice, half a teaspoon of baking powder, and 35 millimeters of almond milk.
She combined the ingredients well with a spatula and transferred the baking mix into a ramekin.
For the melted core of the lava cake, she pushed a 10-gram piece of chocolate into the center of the cake batter and covered it slightly.
She recommended microwaving the cake for 25 to 40 seconds until well done.
While delicious, the sweet treat also proved to be surprisingly healthy, with 13g protein and just 166 total calories.
People thanked her for the recipe and praised her for the genius idea.
“Just made this without protein powder and it’s really good,” said one commenter.
“Oh my god, made these tonight for the first time, wow they are good,” said another.
