Cake for breakfast…Enough said

16 Mar

Breakfast is a pretty big deal for me. I generally feel absolutely starving. Most people are assholes before coffee. Im an asshole before breakfast. Mornings typically involve me sprinting to the kitchen, turning on the kettle and quickly eating the closest thing in sight. Thats why if i’m making something that will take longer ( pancakes, french toast, omelets etc) that I’m generally munching on mini breakfast #1 before the big ticket item.

I know that you’ve heard this before but breakfast is so so so so important. Your body has just starved for the last 7-9 hours ( more or less depending on your sleeping patterns) and so its important to rev your metabolism back up again. Those who don’t eat breakfast will most likely notice that they cant lose weight easily, tire easier and are starving throughout the day.

Enter: The Cake Bake Brittany Style.

This cake bake comes with a complementary green topping just in time for St. Patty’s day!

Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp oat/spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal / hemp seed meal
  • 2 tsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg,dash cloves
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips ( optional but encouraged)
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp vanilla almond milk or whatever milk you have on hand
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce ( or 1 tbsp apple sauce + 1 tbsp honey)
  • handful of blueberries/strawberries/raspberries or a mixture of all

Directions:

Get out a single serving ramekin and grease the sides with coconut oil or other light tasting oil. Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl and all of the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Now mix these together and pop into the ramekin. Finally zap in the microwave for two minutes. Take out of microwave and let rest for 5 minutes while you make your topping.

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt ( I worship the coconut milk vanilla yogurt)
  • 15 grams pumpkin seed protein powder ( This will make your topping green). Feel free to use any protein powder that you have on hand or omit completely and just use the yogurt. For those who hate yogurt you can also sub in honey or maple syrup and each choice will be equally as delicious.
…Spoon topping over cake and devour instantly.

…..TA DA!

You’ve just created a healthy breakfast bake that not only tastes like cake but is a satisfying breakfast.

Enjoy. See you Monday for some more healthy eats!
