Mini Protein Coffee Cakes

FullSizeRender (32)

Turns out I bake when I am anxious and usually I am anxious on Sunday nights before my work week.  Tonight’s anxiety baking experiment was coffee cake!  These were super quick to prep and bake and are easy snacks to take on the go!  Here’s what you need:

40g oat flour (I blended my oats)

10g coffee grinds

1 scoop whey protein (I used Pro Jym Caramel Machhiato, Vanilla will work just fine!)

1 whole egg 2 egg whites

1/2 Banana

1 tbsp Baking Powder

Cinnamon

1 tbsp apple sauce

1 packet stevia

 

Directions:

Preheat over 350F

Mix dry ingredients in a big bowl

Mix in wet ingredients and mashed banana- add water for consistency if needed

Spray muffin pan (I use coconut oil spray) and fill slots 2/3

Top muffins with sprinkle of oats

Bake for roughly 12 minutes

Once baked, let cool for 5 minutes

I added extra “frosting” using 1/2 scoop protein powder, water, cinnamon sugar (can use ground cinnamon)

 

This made 6 muffins total at 80 Calories  2gF/9gC/7gP per muffin

FYI these are caffeinated in case that wasn’t clear.

ENJOY!

Pumpkin Spice Protein Coffee “Coolatta”

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Coolatta#BecauseFALL.  Actually, I enjoy pumpkin spice flavor all year round!  This tastes exactly like a coffee coolatta from Dunkin Donuts except cheaper and better for you.  I am all about simplicity with good taste which isn’t always easy so whenever I am successful I love to share!  In order to make this shake I used my blender bottle and put a cup of ice then brewed a kcup (smallest size), added 2 Stevia, shook up then added 1 scoop protein (I used vanilla egg protein), a little pumpkin spice, shook again and then transferred to my Magic Bullet, blended and boom!  If your blender has a big enough cup to brew in then you save yourself the transfer step.  The key to adding protein to your iced coffee is to wait until after you brew because otherwise the protein will cook up and be clumpy!  I also advise setting your kcup to the lowest degree.  Lastly, depending on the protein flavor you use you may not need the extra Stevia I just happened to have a never ending sweet tooth. 🙂

Enjoy!
