Another very exciting single-serving recipe!
It tastes like cake, but it’s great for the days I run/ train. I love it. Thanks, Healthful Pursuit for sharing! Here’s how I turned it into a two-bar recipe:
4.5 t applesauce
1.5 t maple syrup
1 t almond milk
small dash of vanilla
3 T coconut flour
1 T protein powder (or you could sub in some dry evaporated milk powder)
.5 t cinnamon
1/6 t baking soda
pinch of nutmeg
scant 1/16th t salt
pinch of ground cloves
4.5 t carrots (shredded or pureed)
1 t coconut oil
Optional Mix-ins: blueberries, chocolate chips, raisins, shredded coconut…
-Blend all the dry ingredients and spices. Set aside.
-Blend all wet ingredients. Mix the dry into the wet. Be careful not to overmix though.
-Fold batter into lightly-greased ramekin or small bread dish. You could shape these into cookies, too!
-Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until you can insert a knife and have it come out clean.
-Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
Note: protein cakes tend to be a little dryer than regular cakes, I think, but even so they are very soft. If you wanted something more moist, I’d recommend a little more applesauce or coconut oil.
