Breakfast fit for a queen

This is a seriously yummy breakfast. Soooo good. It's really close to a "bread" pudding texture so if you have been jonesing for that... this is a must try!

It looks fancy too. I would totally serve it to company. It would be perfect for a Sunday Brunch with sausage or bacon and a fruit salad or better yet as breakfast in bed. OK future love of my life take note.

Don't let the souffle word scare you away. This is super easy. I promise.


Shelly's Banana Coconut Protein Breakfast Souffle

2 eggs
1 banana
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut, toasted
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
1/4 teaspoon (+ a dash for tops) Nutmeg
dash Cinnamon

Topping: Sugar Free Maple Syrup

Mix all ingredients in a blender till smooth.

Pour mixture into 4/4-oz ramekins or custard cups. Here's what I use.

If you don't have a groovy set up like this. Just place the ramekins in a large roasting pan. Place pan on oven rack and pour enough very hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Sprinkle top of each souffle with additional nutmeg. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until set, knife inserted comes out clean. Serve warm or chilled with warmed SF maple syrup on top.


It would be a killer meal for those on the soft food stage too.


Highlights of the day:

* I went on a nice walk today. It was beautiful... not too hot, cool breeze. I jammed to my Ipod and enjoyed the day.

* Went to coffee with my friend Jeremy. I whine and muse and over think and he knows just what to say to smack me (in a good way) back to reality.

* I made a yummy experimental dinner. I'll post the food porn and recipe tomorrow.

Oh my this looks so good! You must be a great cook!

Oh. My. God. Wow, those look so good. Although I think I'd go fruitless. Mmm some caramel SF syrup, maybe keep the banana for some texture and flavor. But wow. YUM.

I think I need to move to SoCal!

Shelly:

I love your blog! Just curious...what brand of vanilla soy milk do you use? Do you stick with sugar free or is there one that is low enough in sugar that we won't dump?

Thanks for sharing so much with me!

Yay so glad you liked them Scarletina... and I got a song I love it!!

Freddie, I use Silk Vanilla or Soy Dream Vanilla they are a bit higher in sugars but I don't have issues with it... 8th continent is lower I believe.

Have a great weekend!

Freddie,
Westsoy makes an unsweetened vanilla soy milk that's pretty good, in my opinion! Great stats too. :) 1 cup has 100 calories, 4.5g fat, 5g carb (4 of which are fiber), and 9g protein.

Michelle "Shelly" said...

My only issue with the Westsoy brand is I can only find the low fat version and since I like to also make protein ice cream that one doesn't work for it.

What is in a BMI anyway... You look great and I know you feel great just by reading. Anyway, I tried your Banana Coconut Protein Souffle and let's just say it will become a regular in my household. Even my picky husband thought he died and went to heaven. Thank You! We also had your Beef & Black Bean Stew---LOVE IT. Thanks for keeping us focussed.

Shelly,

I'm find it difficult to find the Arrowhead Mill pancake mix, is there a good substitute you can recommend instead?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Hi Jenny, I prefer that one for the carb count and taste but any you like would do... it is available at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004H2IH7K?tag=theworlda074c-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B004H2IH7K&adid=070FP3HMY5BG6P6VVNPD
