July is National Blueberry Month. It seems to be a really good year for them too. Here's some weight loss surgery friendly ways to celebrate!

Protein powder weight loss surgery bariatric fitness recipesShelly's Blueberry 5 Minute Protein Cake

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
2 Tablespoons Shelly's Blueberry Sauce
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Coconut
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
Pinch salt
1 - 2 cup Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug

In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup, oil, blueberry sauce and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, coconut, protein powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined. Nuke in microwave for about 2 minutes (my microwave is getting old and needs 20 seconds added now - strength varies so start with 2 minutes and add 20 seconds at a time till no longer damp on top)

Let it sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices. Allow to cool. Slice & serve with a squirt of No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream and drizzle of additional Blueberry Sauce if desired.

Shelly's Blueberry Sauce

1 cup Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani (I used SF Vanilla)

Wash blueberries and place in a glass microwave safe bowl. Add syrup. Microwave for 3 minutes. Using a fork smoosh any remaining whole berries. Can also be done on the stove-top.

Weight Loss Healthy Cooking Protein cake slices are also great topped with a scoop of Protein Ice Cream. A scoop of Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream or Blueberry Cobbler Protein Ice Cream would be delicious on this cake. A slice of this toasted is a great grab & go breakfast.

Shelly, Made my first batch of protein icecream with my new icecream maker. White chocolate raspberry with little chunks of sf chocolate bar added. Learned some valuable lessons. 1.NEVER overfill the machine. 2.Don't let batch harden all the way before trying to scoop it. Yikes. Turns to concrete. Thanks to your lessons it was a yummy treat. Keep blogging baby! hehe
