Serves: 1

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great start to your week yesterday! My day was amazing because the weather finally turned cool with a slight breeze! It was the first true sign of fall! I was so excited to come home last night, put on some sweat pants and fuzzy socks and start working on my fall recipes! It’s nice to be able to turn on the oven and not have to blast the air conditioner because the oven is making the house 100 degrees! I just opened the windows and enjoyed that amazing breeze! The only thing I was missing was an apple cinnamon candle, which is on the to-do list for today! I can’t wait until the leaves start turning and that fall smell is in the air!

Today’s recipe was something I made Saturday morning for the boyfriend. I asked him what he wanted for breakfast and he requested something with peanut butter (shocker!)! I also had some bananas that needed to be used, so I made him one of his favor flavor combinations, peanut butter/banana! It is a cake, but it is healthy enough for breakfast too! Or as a Saturday morning treat after a hard workout! 🙂

Fit Ingredients

  • 3tbs (19g) ground flax ( I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 tbs (15g) peanut flour
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbs all natural peanut butter
  • 60g (about 3/4 small) banana, mashed
  • Additional banana slices for topping, optional

****************************************************

  • ramekin
  • non stick cooking spray

***************************************************

Directions

1) Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees.

2) Spray your ramekin with non stick spray.

3) In a bowl combine your dry ingredients: flax, peanut flour, stevia and baking powder

4) Mix in your wet ingredients: egg whites, vanilla extract, peanut butter and mashed banana.

5) Our your batter into the ramekin.

6) Bake for 23-25 minutes.

7) Allow to cool slightly before removing from ramekin.

8) Serve warm or chilled.

 

So how did the boyfriend enjoy it? In his words, it was “Banging!” SUCCESS!! 🙂 I didn’t try it, but if he likes anything that is healthy it’s successful! I served his warm with additional banana slices, pure maple syrup and a side of egg whites. You could also eat it chilled with a dollop of greek yogurt on top! Either way, warm or chilled, this cake would taste amazing! 🙂
