Blueberry Protein Packed Microwave Cake!
I am completely loving reading what people are thankful for from yesterday's post! It really is nice to hear such amazingly positive thoughts!

Yesterday was a crazy day! I lost the whole day or well, it flew by anyway. I blame Tony, of course. No, really, he went to a figure drawing class on Tuesday night that kept him out late. We had horrible storms and well, between him coming in late and me staying up late worrying about him and the storms, this all led to us not getting out of bed until 8:45am. Luckily, this week is mostly online client consultations so I can work anytime and shower as late as possible...which is what I did. Seriously, I was one gross gal by 7:45pm and a shower was really needed! Luckily people can't smell me through the computer...

Since we woke up later, breakfast was later, so lunch was later...

I made chicken corn chowder for the boys (I used this recipe subbing chicken for the shrimp)...

I had an amazing large grilled vegetable salad...

This all took place around 3:00pm which led me to hungryville at around 6pm. I wanted something different though...

I needed something with a good amount of protein since my salad was a little lacking in that department.

I was craving something a little sweet and I really wanted to use the blueberries left from this weekend!

I turned to my good friend Kristin at Stuft Mama for a little inspiration on this. The woman knows how to get some protein into her microwave treats! This was a massive blueberry protein microwave cake (mine was big, if you want a muffin size, half the recipe) with coconut cream and fresh blueberries on top!

This sucker got so big in the microwave! I love a fun kitchen science experiment!

I thought it made a funny face at me when all the air let out of it. I imagine it's saying "eat me"in a muppet voice! Does your food talk to you too? Humor me! 

Blueberry Protein Microwave Cake

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Life's Basics), this was a serving of protein powder per their   measurements
1 TBSP coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2 TBSP quick oats
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 packs stevia
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (I used Almond Breeze)
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup blueberries

Mix everything together. Pour into a sprayed microwave safe soup size bowl. Microwave 6-7 minutes. 

Coconut Cream
(original recipe here)

1 TBSP coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2 packs stevia
1-3 TBSP water (enough to make it all come together)

This tasty treat had 35 grams of protein, 35 grams of carbs (from high fiber sources) and 15 grams of fat (from coconut and protein). Not bad for a tasty treat. Good enough for breakfast too!

Have you ever made a microwave cake? Any favorite combinations?

    I've yet to try one of these microwaved protein cakes. This looks great. What could you sub for coconut flour?

  • At July 12, 2012 at 8:41 AM, Blogger Heather said…

    I have, but the texture from the eggs always throws me off. I have a weird thing with food textures. :)

    This looks so good! You know I'm on a protein quest... I have a ton of strawberries that I bet would be good here. And I really like the coconut cream idea - I've never done that! Great way to add more fiber, too.

  • At July 12, 2012 at 9:40 AM, Blogger Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said…

    Heather - More oats, regular flour, more protein flour, really to stabilize it. This one is super high protein which I really liked! I added the coconut flour because I thought it would be a good flavor and it has good stuff in it. Microwave cakes are actually kind of fun to play with as long as your up for a little adventure. They are super quick and you can make them as sweet as you want for a dessert or you can have it as a breakfast (although you know I'm always having oats for breakfast). Also, the fun part is the topping. That's where the real sweetness comes into play for me! I did a pumpkin version last night for 2nd dessert…that was so

    I hate when Shane has to be out late, too - esp with storms or snow (in the winter.)
    I haven't had a protein muffin in a while!

    thanks for the awesome idea, I have a ten month old who has been diagnosed with a "total milk protein" allery. I'm trying to wean him but I've been worried I won't be able to get enough protien in his diet. Can I substitute rice milk or Hemp milk for the Almond milk? We can't use nuts yet either :)

  • At July 12, 2012 at 12:42 PM, Anonymous Kathryn @ Mamacado said…

    I'm guessing this recipe won't worry without the eggs? My son is allergic to them, but I'd love to try it out somehow without the eggs.

    BTW - can't wait to try the chicken corn chowder recipe. Mmm!

  • At July 12, 2012 at 1:03 PM, Blogger Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said…

    Emylee, I would imagine you could use any milk you wanted to. I think Hemp would be really good!

    Kathryn, I used egg to get the protein and fluff, but you could try chia gel or flax gel. They won't rise us as much, but I would imagine they would be good.

    Ahahah - it really does look like a muppet face saying "eat me!" Looks absolutely delicious - and I just so happen to have a couple of blueberries leftover that I can make this with!

    Ooooh your microwave muffin recipe combines both recipes that I have. One has coconut flour and one has eggs. Fun! I'm interested in trying both. The texture of yours looks a lot softer than the one I've been making.
