Protein cake- a sugar-free indulgence

I love sugar-free protein cake recipes because they simply don’t make you feel guilty after eating a big slice of it! Today I will be showing you how to make a Swiss roll, but in a healthy version.

The recipe was inspired by my grandma, who bakes better than anyone else in the world. However, her recipes are usually packed with butter and refined sugar. Nothing for fitness fans. That is why I took her recipe and replaced all the „bad“ ingredients with cleaner choices. The result was a very light and low fat cake that is very simple to make and works for breakfast, brunch and dessert!

This could also be a protein cake bodybuilding recipe in case you are training for a competition and need to diet really hard. It can be hard to satisfy your sweet tooth on those pre-competition cutting diets. This low-sugar cake will definitely fit into your meal plan! 

The whole recipe will take you about 30 minutes and doesn’t require any special baking skills. This is how you roll the dough: 

Regarding the filling of the protein cake there are a lot of different options that you have. For this specific recipe I used greek yoghurt mixed with blueberry jam and blueberries. But you can literally use any fruit spread, protein cream or anything else that comes to your mind. That is what I love about the recipe. You have the dough as a base and can vary each time with the filling.

Autor Carina Berry



  • 4 Eggs
  • 150 g Icing Sugar Xylit
  • 170 g spelled flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  • 200 g greek yoghurt
  • 200 g cream cheese
  • 30 g Xylit
  • 100 g sugar-free blueberry jam
  • 40 ml lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees upper-lower heat.

    Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff.

      In a bowl, mix the yolk with the xylit icing sugar and stir until fluffy.

        Mix the flour with the baking powder and alternate with the egg whites and the egg yolk mass.

          Spread the dough on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and place in the oven.

            Bake the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

              Remove the dough from the oven and put a clean kitchen towel over it. Flip the dough onto it and carefully remove the baking paper.

                Wit the help of the kitchen towel roll up the dough and let it rest until you are done with the filling.

                  Mix all ingredients (except fruit spread) for the filling together and brush it out onto the dough. Add spoonfuls of the fruit spread over the dough.

                    Now start rolling the cake up again from one side until you have a nice roll.

                      Healthy Crumble Recipe

                      Healthy crumble with plums

                      Fall is just around the corner and its time to harvest all those delicious pears, apples, plums and blackberries. A perfect opportunity to make a healthy crumble for dessert! 

                      In this blogpost I will be sharing my favorite healthy crumble recipe with you, which I use all the time. It is packed with delicious protein and sweet fruit. Like all of my recipes it is super easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of cooking skills. 

                      Since I am going to Central America soon – Costa Rica and Panama – I am trying to get all my favorite fall recipes in before I leave since I am pretty sure I won’t find fresh pears, pumpkins and plums there. Plus it will be so hot over there that I will probably not feel like eating decadent fall food. Therefore I am currently eating a lot of pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, pear cake, ect. I will be dedicating the next blogpost to my pumpkin addiction by the way. So many awesome recipes on the way soon guys! 

                      Healthy crumble with plums

                      Crumble Variations 

                      So, I will be sharing a basic recipe for the healthy crumble which you can alternate depending on your fruit wishes. You can make the same recipe with pears, cherries, blueberries, blackberries or plums. I have tried it with almost any kind of fruit. The only fruit that doesn’t really work are tropical fruits because of their acid which doesn’t get along with the dairy and strawberries because they have too much water. 

                      Healthy crumble with blueberries


                      As always you will only need a handful of very basic ingredients. The recipe is divided into two parts. The crumble and the filling. 
                      In total you need 8 ingredients for the healthy crumble. Eggs, protein powder, greek yoghurt, Xylit, oats, peanut butter, cinnamon. 

                      We are replacing unhealthy sugar with Xylit and four that is filled with fast acting simple carbs with complex oats! Also, we are substituting the butter for peanut butter, which adds just like the whey extra protein to the healthy crumble recipe.  

                      Healthy crumble with cherries


                      You simply mix the eggs, greek yoghurt and Xylit with each other for the filling. Now its up to you to decide which kind of fruit you want to use. Dice your apples, throw in the blueberries, pit  and add the cherries. 

                      Now lets make the crumble. For that you simply mix the oats with some water, peanut butter and cinnamon. 2/3 of the crumbles will serve as the crust and the rest will be sprinkles on top of the filling. 

                      Finally, put the crumble into the oven and let it bake for half an hour at 180 degrees. Best served still warm.
