Cake for breakfast?!

Mmmm yep! A favorite quick breakfast is a slice of one of my 5 minute Protein Cakes toasted. Today I had a slice topped with a smear of butter but it's also great with a smear of nut butter, SF jam or just plain. Great breakfast on the go... toast, wrap in foil and you're off...

Shelly's 5 Minute Banana Protein Cake

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk (I used Vanilla Soy)
2 Tablespoons Sugar-Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
1/2 a Banana, mashed
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix (I use this)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
2 Tablespoon Unsweetened Coconut (Almond Meal/Flour can be subbed)
Pinch salt
1 Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug (I use a 2 cup measuring cup)

In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup, banana, and oil 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 2 minutes*

Let it sit for 3 or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices.

*Microwave wattage varies. Mine takes 2 minutes but start with 2 minutes and add 20-second increments if needed till no liquid is seen. My microwave is getting old and cakes now take 2 minutes, 20 seconds in it.

Banana not your thing...

Try the 20 (well not quite 20 but pretty close) other flavors of Protein Cakes.

If you have whippersnappers in your life make one of these cakes with them. It's like a deluxe Easy Bake Oven cake. They think it's magic and that you are the coolest and being cool in the eyes of a child is the best kind of cool.
