Single Serving Zucchini Bread + Healthy Habit Reboot Challenge

Ingredients
  • * 1 scoop vanilla protein powder*
  • * 2 tablespoons erythritol
  • * 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • * 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • * ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • * ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • * pinch salt
  • * ¼ cup applesauce
  • * 1 egg whites (or 1 egg's worth of egg replacer)
  • * ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • * ¼ teaspoon molasses
  • 3 tablespoons grated zucchini (or juice pulp if you like!)
Instructions
  1. Grease a large mug and set aside. You can either cook this in the oven or in the microwave; if you are using the oven option, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine protein powder, erythritol, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and mix until uniform.
  3. Add the applesauce, egg white, vanilla extract, and molasses and stir until completely combined. Stir in grated zucchini and pour the batter into the prepared mug.
For microwave version:
  1. Cook on high in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Make sure to use a large mug (bigger than you think you need!) because the batter expands a lot while cooking. Keep a watch on it to make sure the batter doesn’t overflow. Take the mug out after 1 minute 30 seconds and inset a toothpick into the center to see if it comes out clean. If not, keep cooking in 15 second intervals, checking with the toothpick in between each interval. Microwaves vary a lot in cooking powder, so this is to figure out exactly how much you should cook the cake so it is perfectly done (not too or too dry). You’ll only have to do this the first time you make it so you get a sense of how long it takes in your microwave. Then you’re ready to make this many more times as it becomes a regular in your recipe arsenal—like it has in mine. :-) Once the toothpick comes out clean, you’re ready to eat!
For oven version:
  1. Bake in the oven at 350°F for 23-27 minutes. Mine took a surprisingly long time to cook, but I would start checking at 23 minutes with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. Cooking times vary quite a bit with the kind of protein powder you use, so just keep an eye on it and take it out as soon as it passes the toothpick test. Devour.
