I have a problem.
A sweet tooth problem.
My weakness has ALWAYS been candy, cakes, cookies, chocolate. If it contains sugar, I am eating it. And most likely, all of it.
Not a good obsession when I am trying to shake off the body fat.
What’s a girl to do?
Well… considering I am trying to up my protein intake each day I decided to pair my sweet addiction with my protein needs and create some delicious protein treats!
Ladies and Gents, I bring to you:
Vanilla Protein Cake
Simple ingredients, 1 minute prep time, 1 minute cook time, 1 minute cool down time and this little baby is all yours.
Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe mug OR bowl.
I always choose a bowl because the cake grows. Mugs are far too tiny unless you’ve for one of those gigantic soup mugs.
Pop in the microwave for 1 minute. (Watch closely).
Slide the cake right out onto a plate and eat as is OR whip together a little frosting using Greek yogurt, sugar free pudding mix (I used cheesecake flavor) and a little milk for consistency.
Share or eat all by yourself.
Without the frosting:
- 180 calories
- 8 grams carbohydrates
- 31 grams protein
With the frosting adds:
- 40 calories
- 9 grams carbohydrates
- 7 grams protein
It wasn’t too shabby! I mean, it’s not CAKE … but it’ll do. 😉
Hey, as long as it’s sweet I will give it a try!
I am most definitely going to have to give this recipe a try – I use all of those ingredients in a lot of recipes that I make already, so I happen to have them on hand!
Right on! Let me know what you think. Next time I think I’ll use almond flavoring in the Greek yogurt icing. Mmmm.
Great way to get your sweet on!
This looks like a great idea. I’ll try some after my next workout!
