Fluffy vanilla sponge filled with blackberry jam and chocolate sludge. Perfect for spooky szn.
1 scoop protein powder (3 tbsp)
1 ripe banana
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1/3 c oat flour*
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
2 tbsp blackberry jam**
1 tsp extra dark cocoa powder
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp milk of choice/ water
Lightly grease a small ovenproof bowl and preheat oven to 200°C/ 390°F (180°C fan)
Place the protein powder in a bowl along with the banana. Mash the banana into the protein powder with a fork until pureed.
Whisk in the egg, vanilla extract and maple syrup (if you choose to add it) until combined.
Fold in the dry ingredients, then pour about two-thirds of the mixture into the greased bowl.
Make a small dip in the centre of the mixture and add 2 tbsp of blackberry jam. Gently spoon the rest of the mixture on top and smooth over with a spatula or the back of the spoon.
Place in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden on top.
To make the chocolate sludge, drizzle all the ingredients together and drizzle on top of the baked oats.
* You can make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats in a food processor or high-speed blender until floury
** You can also use strawberry/ raspberry jam but I feel like blackberry jam looks more blood-y
