In the spirit of starting a new chapter in my life today, breakfast today was something new as well. I have a few leftover eggs from last week’s FML brownies (which, by the way, was one of my favorite posts ever), so I decided to try one of Deb’s microwave protein muffins.
Instead of following her recipe exactly, I used:
- 1 large mashed banana
- 1 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior
- 1 tablespoon Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 packets Truvia
I was a little apprehensive about how things would turn out using protein powder instead of flour, but I figured I had nothing to lose. Or compare it to. Thankfully, it turned out really, really well! I mixed everything up and microwaved it for about 3 minutes on high. The result:
(Blobby things don’t photograph too artistically. My apologies.) I was surprised by how moist and dense this thing was, and the flavor was actually really good too! I’m interested to try it with flour and see how the two compare.
While this was really filling, I didn’t realize how low-calorie it was until I reread the original recipe post. I ended up eating a small bowl of Kashi GoLean with peanut butter, as well. Cereal and something new? Win.
