Snack of the Day: Apple Cinnamon Protein Cake



This cake is really quick to make right in the microwave. All you do is spray a bowl with nonstick spray, mix all the ingredients, & microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds. No it does not taste like a real high calorie, high fat cake but it does tastes good and it is high protein, low calorie, gluten free, & low carb plus it’s super simple to make & a fairly large size portion πŸ˜‰


*1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice (I have tried with both whey & casein & I prefer casein)

*3 tablespoons egg whites from carton

*1/2 small apple chopped (skin on or off)

*1/2 teaspoon baking powder

*1 packet zero calorie sweetener of choice or 1 packet sugar free apple cider mix

*several dashes cinnamon

Spray microwave safe bowl with nonstick spray. Add all ingredients & stir well. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until you get a nice thick pudding texture. Cook in microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds or until edges are not wet & it feel firm around edges. Top may still seem wet but it’s much better if it’s undercooked rather than overcooked because it will get too dry. Flip onto plate or eat out of bowl. Add more cinnamon if desired & enjoy warm!

Nutritional information will vary based on protein powder you use but one cake will be 184 calories & 29 grams protein. If you use apple cider mix it is 199 calories.
