Love dessert, but not the high calorie counts or ingredients that aren't natural? Good news -- we've got two incredible new dessert recipes that totally comply...
HG FYI: To ensure your recipe results are completely natural, read the ingredient labels on the specific products you get. We've suggested some brands, but when in doubt, shop at Whole Foods or another natural-foods market...
PB Protein Mug Cake
Entire recipe: 138 calories, 5.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 238mg sodium, 10.5g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3* -- SmartPoints® value 4*
This cake is made with powdered peanut butter, coconut flour, and protein powder. Which means? A dessert that's low in fat and high in protein!
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes or less
1 tbsp. coconut flour
1 tbsp. vanilla protein powder with about 100 calories per serving (like the kinds by Tera's Whey)
1 tbsp. powdered peanut butter (like Just Great Stuff)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Half of a natural no-calorie sweetener packet (like Truvia or Stevia in the Raw)
2 tbsp. egg whites (about 1 large egg white)
1 tbsp. light vanilla soymilk or unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 oz. (about 1 tbsp.) chopped peanuts
Spray a microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add flour, protein powder, powdered peanut butter, baking powder, and sweetener. Mix well.
Add egg whites, soymilk/almond milk, vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons water. Stir until uniform.
Microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds, or until set.
Immediately run a knife along the edges to help separate the cake from the mug. Firmly place a plate over the mug, and flip so that the plate is on the bottom. Gently shake mug to release cake onto the plate.
Sprinkle with peanuts. Eat warm.
