Two Paws Up for Pumpkin Spice Microwave Protein Cake

Had to work near the beach the other day so I brought my lunch and some snacks in my super cool bento box. I sat on the beach, watched the waves crash and shared my meal with a squirrel. He really loved my cashews and pumpkin spice protein cake. Word of warning sharing your lunch with wildlife can be dangerous. Thankfully this time it went well.

Here's what my fuzzy friend and I ate...

You're reading my mind with the pumpkin! Although, I'm not sure all the sun in Cali would put me in mind of pumpkin, but the cool weather in the midwest sure has me Jonesing for some!+

Your recipes have gotten me through even as a 4 year post op! Tonight I saw your pumpkin cake (I've made your cakes 100 + times, the coconut makes it even more moist I LOVE it) and of course, at 10:30 at night, had to make a double recipe...

That being said, I nibbled on a slice and plan to use the rest in a fall type of trifle? maybe pumpkin mousse fluff and some sf cool whip.. mmm i taste it already.. thanks eggface, your recipes ROCK!!! xo

ok, I am just getting into these. :) Thank you so much. So, how much is a serving?? Could I eat the whole thing (if I could??) Whats the calories and protein count??

Bentos are fun. Portion size is something your nutritionist or Dr will give you based on what stage of post-op you are.

Can you sub coconut for anything? and does it give a coconut flavor?

Almond meal can sub for coconut :) It's subtle the flavor of the coconut.
