Berrylicious Microwave Muffin

Here is a good idea for breakfast or snack!

1/4 cup quick oats
1 egg (sub. 1/4 egg beaters for less calories)
small handful of blueberries
little bit of brown sugar/stevia (optional)
tbsp soymilk or regular milk(for added moistness!)

Mix it all up into a coffee mug!
Put it in the microwave for 1 minute, make sure it doesn’t overflow! Add an extra 30 sec if it needs to firm up.

Chocolate Banana Wontons

Ingredients

Makes 6 servings

2 servings butter-flavor cooking spray

1 large banana, diced

6 tbsp mini chocolate chips

24 wonton wrappers (half of 12 oz package)

1 tbsp powdered sugar

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

 

In a medium bowl, combine banana and chocolate chips, and mix gently.

 

Place wonton wrappers on flat surface. Drop teaspoonfuls of banana mixture onto center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of each wrapper with wet fingers, and fold over one corner to make a triangle and press sides together to seal. Transfer filled wrappers to prepared baking sheet.

 

Bake 10-12 minutes, until wontons are golden brown. Sift powdered sugar over wontons before serving. Yields 4 wontons per serving.

English Muffin Panini

Cheesy Pizza Panini

  • 1 Whole Wheat English Muffin or Sandwich Thin
  • 1 tbsp pizza sauce (you could use tomato paste, just be sure to sprinkle with salt and spices)
  • 1 Mini Babybel Light
  • Your fav pizza topics, optional of course (pepperoni, baby spinach, diced peppers)

If you like a crunchier muffin, pre-toast. I tend to like mine soft so I kept it raw.

Smear the sauce on the muffin, top with any toping and then place the cheese in the center.

Press in the George Foreman or a panini press, about 4 minutes

Sugar Free Protein Muffin

cake made with duck eggs

prep time – 5 minutes

bake time – about 30-33 minutes

serves – 1

ingredients:

  • 1 scoop protein powder (we used Vega protein performance powder -neutral flavor)
  • 1 duck egg*
  • 2 tbsp cocoa or carob powder
  • 1 tsp xylitol (optional for sweetness) or a few drops of stevia
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup water

directions:

pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. place all ingredients into a bowl and mix together.  scoop muffin batter into one large muffin pan or individual ramekin. (if you do not have a large muffin pan then use regular size muffin pan but put muffin batter into two muffin liners)

some might find this recipe to be a little dry, feel free to add in 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil or puree of some sort to help make it more moist. we liked it as is, especially using the duck egg. we found the texture to be perfect.

*we used 1 whole duck egg in this recipe but if you want to use chicken eggs do 1 whole egg + 1 egg white.  duck eggs are little bigger than chicken eggs.

Breakfast Cookies

Peanut Butter Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies ~ These cookies have the great flavor of peanut butter, are power packed because of adding protein powder and are egg & flour free and are sweetened with bananas & applesauce.  If you want to indulge, add some chocolate or carob chips & take the flavor up to the next level!

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter ~ creamy or chunky
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder ** (can be made without, cookie will just be lower in protein)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp butter flavor extract ** (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (peanut, walnut, or your favorite)
  • 1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips (**optional)

Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix mashed banana & peanut butter until completely combined then add in the applesauce, vanilla protein powder & the extract(s) ~ mix again until all are completely combined.

Add in the oatmeal & nuts to the banana mixture & combine.  (** add the optional carob / chocolate chips at this time if you want them mixed throughout)

Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet & flatten cookies into rounds. (** if you just want the carob / chocolate chips on the top of the cookies, add now)

Bake cookies approx. 30 minutes, or until golden brown & done.  Remove from oven & let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack.  (if you want the traditional fork tong marks on the cookies, use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to score the tops of the cookies while they’re still warm)

When cookies are completely cool, store in a covered container.  Enjoy!
