No, no, no. I haven’t completely abandoned my healthy ways!
Today’s cake for breakfast came in the form of a protein cake!
To make this sweet mini cake, I simply combined the following ingredients:
- 1 scoop All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder
- 1.5 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
- 1 egg white
- 1 large pinch of baking soda
- Enough water to moisten everything (1/8 cup?)
After stirring everything up, I microwaved the mixture on high for a minute, monitoring it to make sure it didn’t poof up too much and overflow the container.
After a minute, my protein cake was ready for eatin’.
I paired my protein cake with a cup of cold, creamy Greek yogurt.
This lil’ recipe was inspired by a concoction I saw on Janetha’s blog a while ago that used pumpkin in place of the applesauce.
This recipe is a lot like my normal protein brownie recipe, but the addition of the applesauce really helps make this lil’ cake nice and moist! It’s also delicious smeared with peanut butter or with a handful of chopped nuts thrown in! The possibilities are endless. 😀
Question of the Morning
- Protein Powder: Love it or hate it?
I cannot stomach protein shakes made with just protein powder and water or milk, but I love protein powder used in recipes, stirred into oatmeal or incorporated into ice cold smoothies.
