My friends, your wildest dreams have come true. I present to you a single serving, (grain/gluten/dairy/sugar-free) brownie. It took me all of 6 minutes to make this, including prep time, cook time,
Mix into a bowl:
2 egg whites
2 TBSP coconut flour OR 1 TBSP coconut flour plus 1/2 scoop protein powder
1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
2 packets Stevia (more or less, it's up to you.)
1/4 cup pure pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Spray a little glass dish or bowl with non-stick cooking spray or grease it with coconut oil. I used a small round Pyrex dish. Put mixture in it and toss it into the microwave. Nuke at 80% power for 2 - 4 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave so keep an eye on it so you don't scorch the edges. The second the middle is not wet, it's done!
You could eat this plain, top it with coconut butter, nut butter, berries, Greek yogurt, etc. Go crazy.
The options with this little cake are endless. You could omit the cocoa and sub in cinnamon and nuts for more of a Cinnamon Roll style cake. You could add fruit if you want or if you're feeling crazy, peanut butter and chocolate chips. There are no rules - anything goes!
Subs: I haven't tried any of these but I am guessing** they would work.
Instead of coconut flour, maybe try almond flour.
Add 1/2 scoop protein powder and another egg white to beef up the protein content.
Instead of 2 egg whites, use 1 whole egg.
Instead of pumpkin, use berry flavored baby food, unsweetened applesauce, or smashed banana.
**If the aforementioned substitutions don't work, remember that those were guesses on my part. To ensure greatness I suggest you stick with the original recipe.
Eat up buttercups, and let me know how you made yours and how it turned out!
