SkinnyCook’s Protein Tiramisu

f0ad4978-95d9-4e05-a52e-fe2587546346This protein dessert is so amazing, easy to make and delicious that the only issue with it is that I feel very guilty eating it when I am on strict low-carb…I just still cannot believe something can be this sinless and packed of protein and so tasty at the same time! I guess it will take time to accept it..but for now let me eat another one…




Just see these :

The whole Base macros amounts to:

132g Proteins; 15g Fats; 58g Carbs (904 kcal if you need to know..though you don’t)

And Topping (if used 400g of quark and 1 scoop of protein):

16g Carbs; 59g Protein; (320 kcal)


Therefore, if you make 6 quite big tiramisu-s, Each of them will be:

204 Kcal; 12 Carb; 2.5 Fat and 81g of Protein (!!!)

I’ve literally just checked prot. twice…this is so unbelievable, I think I’ve already reached my 110g of proteins goal for the day..and it’s only 10 am.

N/B All calculations are approximate and based of the brands/ingredients I personally used. In any case your cooked cake will not go far from these. I also must say that calculating macros I realised that most Carb&Fat and Kcal in the base come from coconut flour, thus I will try replace it in the future with something even more sinless.Any ideas?

1 cup egg whites

1 cup low fat soft cottage cheese

1/2 cup whey protein powder

2 tbsp cocoa powder

6 tbsp coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1-3 drops of Rum flavour  (or of your choice)



Protein powder

Cocoa or Protein powder for dusting



  1. Preheat oven to 175C
  2. Mix well all the Base ingredients in a blender
  3. Pour base mixture into a cake pan and bake for 12-16 mins until ready
  4. Cool the cake down and cut into pieces; alternatively you can just use a spoon to place base into cups. All depends on a plating you imagine for your Tiramisu
  5. Make a shot of espresso and add few teaspoons for each Tiramisu base to soak
  6. Mix the Topping: Depending on how you like it, find your proportion of Quark and Protein powder. I tried vanilla, white chocolate powder and even banana protein mousse powder – all worked well, so you your imagination. Vanilla, of course, would be a classical Tiramisu.
  7. Top the Base(with coffee soaked) cake with the topping.
  8. Dust on top cocoa or even chocolate protein powder!

Leave in a fridge to settle and Enjoy!569e472a-34ac-48ab-b63f-94c20d5f88f2
