My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 55

I am getting more and more addicted to bowl cakes, since they are so simple to make and so delicious. And of course I am trying to keep mine as healthy as possible. So, ladies and gentlemen, welcome the middle-melting chocolate protein bowl cake!

As usual, I start with buttering a bowl with coconut oil, and then mix the following in that bowl: 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 egg, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 1 tablespoon quinoa flour, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. Then I sink two squares of 90% dark chocolate into the mixture and put it in the microwave. My cake takes 5-6 minutes in total (in 1-minute increments).

Then I take the cake out of the bowl. The molten chocolate has come out on the surface, and I mix it with a teaspoon of dulce de leche and spread this mixture over the surface. Some fruits and berries (namely figs, raspberries and blueberries) and a cup of cappuccino accompany my bowl cake, which turned out delicious – and quite beautiful finally!

Breakfast – Day 53

Today’s breakfast doesn’t look extremely beautiful in the picture, yet it’s one of the most delicious breakfasts ever! What it essentially is, is protein bowl cake with tart cherries in chocolate-banana sauce.

For the cake I grease a bowl with olive oil and mix in it 2 tablespoons yogurt, 3 tablespoons full-fat milk, 1 scoop vanilla-flavoured whey protein, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts, 1 tablespoon raisins and 1.5 squares chopped 99% cocoa Lindt Excellence chocolate. Then I microwave the bowl in 4 45-second increments, and in the meantime I make the sauce, simply by mixing 3 tablespoons milk with a banana and a tablespoon of cocoa powder in the blender.

Finally I serve the bowl cake with a dollop of heavy cream and mix some pitted sour cherries with the sauce to serve them on the side. Tastes heavenly!

Breakfast – Day 50

ruflag

If I want to have cake for breakfast, I prefer it to be healthy, just as my today’s protein bowl cake is. It is quick and easy to make as well, unlike your usual cake.

I simply take a small bowl, grease it with coconut oil (so that the cake easily comes out later) and mix in it 2 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 tablespoon vanilla-flavoured whey protein, 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt, 2 tablespoons almond milk, 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Then I microwave the bowl in one minute increments (3 minutes in total). In the meantime, I prepare the sauce, mixing 2 tablespoons plain yoghurt with 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder. By the way, all the amounts given are for 1 person, so just double them if you are serving 2.

The bowl cake makes a great breakfast together with some fresh berries and unsweetened cappuccino.
