Chocolate Banana Heaven

These are to die for... like a chocolate "bread pudding."

Soooo good.

Shelly's Chocolate Monkey Protein Souffle

2 Tablespoons Walnuts
2 eggs
1 Banana
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut, toasted
3 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF White Chocolate)
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder (and a dash for top)
dash Cinnamon

Topping: Sugar Free Whipped Cream, Sugar Free Maple Syrup or Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup

Sprinkle nuts into bottom of each ramekin. Mix all remaining 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 cocoa. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until set, knife inserted comes out clean.

Highlights of the Day:

* Ummm chocolate for breakfast does life get much better than that. If you haven't made these little souffles yet you have too.

* Did you guys see the hottie that will be at the LA OH Event? Anyone know if he's single?? I've got dibs if he is ;)

* So looking forward to Grey's Anatomy 2 hour season premier tonight... despite the fact that I saw the previews and Rose is pregnant ughhh!

Listening to: Dramarama "Anything"

If this is the same guy I think it is, he was in a relationship. Don't know if he still is or not. He had a lot of plastic surgery after his weight loss. He doesn't look like it though, he looks GOOOD.

I met him before!! He was getting a tattoo with my tattoo artist..he bumped me out of my appt lol but I am close with my artist so i didnt care ..I hung out in the back and watched him get his tattoo and he talked to me about WLS he was sooooo nice and sweet...i didnt believe it was him, he made me goggle him while i was sitting there...he even showed me his scars from the bypass lol...then he stayed at the studio while my friend got her tattoo..ask him to show you the tattoo payaso did for him (its a longhorns logo)..good luck! If I wasn't married I totally would have made a pass at him ;)
