  1. Ive been waiting for something like this for the longest time its not even funny!

  2. Oh my! Amazing! I need to make this 🙂

  3. Looks really rich and yummy! I made Nutella mug cakes a few days back and they were a blast…I bet this will even be more festive. I’d love to try!

  4. Love how sinful this looks 😡

  5. what kind of chocolate protein powder tastes best???

  6. Jesus! Love it! Love love love, that’s amazing! Have a wonderful day. Love from Norway.

  7. Hi, I’d really love to try this recipe (it looks so delicious!), but I have a problem with the protein powder. I’m vegan and the only vegan protein powder I can buy (I could order a flavoured one from the Internet, of course, but it’s quite expensive :() in my country (a tiny country in central Europe) is unflavoured soy protein. Do you think using unflavoured soy protein powder would affect the taste of your recipes with flavoured protein powders any significantly? And can I substitute this protein powder for fatfree powdered milk? Thanks for your reply 🙂

    • Unflavored soy protein might make the batter a bit bland but you can try it. I’m sure fat free powdered milk would work as well, either way, I would suggest adding 2-3 more tablespoons of cocoa powder, erythritol and almond milk. Just give the batter a taste to make sure it’s sweet and flavorful enough. Hope it works out!

    • Oh sorry, I must have used a wrong order of words in the phrase ‘substitute sth for sth’ (I’m not a native speaker and always seem to have problems with this phrase) 😀 It was actually meant like this: Would using unflavoured soy protein powder instead of fatfree powdered milk be ok in your recipes? I’d love to make all those yummy and healthy recipes, but grocery stores in my country don’t offer fatfree vegan powdered milk (they sometimes offer powdered vegan milk, but it’s nothing but fat and sugar :/) and as I said, I can’t buy reasonably priced and nutritionally balanced flavoured vegan protein powders, either :(( Too sad 🙁 But I hope unflavoured soy protein powder will work for both of these items 🙂 Anyway, thanks a lot for your reply and sorry for the misunderstanding! 🙂

    • No problem! 🙂 Soy protein tends to absorb more liquid than powdered milk, so I would say less soy protein is needed than what the recipe calls for, for the powdered milk. I would add the soy protein slowly and stop when you achieve the right texture. Hope this helps!

  8. Just tried this for a party this evening, and it was GREAT! Nobody could tell (or needed to know) that it was healthy! I used red kidney beans (it was all I had) and doubled the erythritol since I didn’t have any Stevia extract. I did end up adding a couple packets of Stevia, just to up the sweetness a *little* bit. Amazing!!! Absolutely love it! I’m a chocoholic, but I can’t eat much of it, so this is a perfect compromise 🙂 Also, just as a side note, don’t know if it makes any difference but I used whey protein powder and it worked great!

      Yay! I’m so glad you liked the recipe 🙂
      Good to know that the kidney beans worked out, I might try that out next time!

  9. I loooove this recipe! I’ve been searching the web for oat recipes incorporating raw hazelnut butter and I just couldn’t find anything at all appealing. The addition of black beans is really interesting! I must try that out. What are your thoughts on subbing with azuki benas? they are sweet so I guess it would change the flavor a little. I tried making an overnight oats recipe incorporating hazelnut butter on my own blog called Ferrero Rocher oats, but this one looks like it might be a little bit mroe creamy and I love how it is dairy free (I used a bit of yoghurt cream cheese). I absolutely adore your high protein content in everything and was impressed to see that I’ve also been using Sun Warrior Protein powder just like you sometimes do 🙂 can’t wait to test more of your recipes!

      Anoushé- I’m sure azuki beans would work just as well! They might change the flavor a little bit but I don’t think they would too much. Hope you like the recipe 🙂
