Clean Eat Recipe :: Protein-Packed Angel Food Cake

Try this fabulous recipe for a clean dessert that won't keep you from your goals!

1/4 CUP Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/2 CUP Oat Flour
1/2 TSP sea salt
1 1/2 CUP cold egg whites or 10-12 large egg whites
1 TBSP cold water
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TSP pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 8 x 8" baking pan with pure olive oil spray.
2. Combine flour and salt together in a small bowl by whisking together.
3. Using an electric mixer (I LOVE my KitchenAid stand mixer for this!), beat cold egg whites, cold water, lemon juice and vanilla on medium speed until the egg whites increase about 4-5 times their volume and become "fluffy." 
4. Keep mixer on medium and mix in the Stevia in the Raw. The egg whites will form soft peaks at the top.
5. Using a rubber spatula, begin folding in the flour mixture a little at a time. (Fold, then add, fold, then add, repeat.)
6. Pour batter into pan, evening out the surface of the mixture with the rubber spatula.
7. Bake for approximately 35-38 minutes until cake is cooked in the middle. You can use the toothpick test for this. 
8. Allow cake to cool. Cut into 9 pieces and top with your favorite fruit topping to serve. 

This makes 9 servings in an 8 x 8" pan.

He & She Tips: If you want a fun topping, slice berries, put them in a bowl and add a Tbsp of water or lemon juice. Microwave for 30 seconds and your fruit will begin to make a syrup! (It's great on waffles or pancakes too!). Refrigerate your leftovers. This will stay good for about a week.

Happy Baking!

  1. Suppose a coconut or almond flour would work in place of whole wheat?

    1. I would suggest the almond flour. The coconut flour may absorb the egg a little too much. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!

  2. This looks so tasty, almond flour sounds like a delicious substitution!

    1. It's Amazing Jess! Let us know how yours turns out with the almond flour!

  3. Just maade this last night and it was delicious! I wasn't able to find oat flour (we're stationed overseas)so I used soy flour instead. Came out perfect! Thank you for posting this recipe!!

    1. Thank you for sharing Kim! We are so glad you enjoyed them!

  4. Is it possible to use a regular bundt cake pan? Thanks! :) Looking forward to trying the recipe!

    1. Absolutely! That will make a real traditional looking Angel Food Cake!

  5. I'm making this right now! It looks delicious.

  6. Is whole wheat flour the same as whole wheat pastry flour?

    1. Pastry flour tends to be ground finer than traditional flour so it makes recipes a little more fluffy. I hope that helps!

    2. That does help, thanks! Do you think I could txt use the pastry flour to make an apple crisp as well?

  7. Can I use oat bran if I don't have oat flour? If not, can I just use wheat flour for the whole recipe?

    1. Hi Cortney! We have never tried it with oat bran. I would try wheat flour for the whole recipe. Let us know how it turns out!
