  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat bottom and sides of an 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place lentils and water in a blender; puree into a smooth paste.
  3. Transfer lentil paste to a large bowl. Mix in eggs, sugar, margarine, and vanilla extract. Stir in cocoa powder and protein powder until batter is thick and well-combined. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute chocolate protein powder for the vanilla powder if desired.
  • You can use 2 eggs and 1 egg white instead of 3 whole eggs if preferred.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
