Pumpkin Cheesecake Loaf

I had some extra time this weekend and this new crisp air just has me all pumpkin and fall crazy like the rest of the world, and while Tanner continues to slave away studying for this board exam (only 20 more days-thank ya jesus), I decided to get to baking and surprise him! He said it was one of my best yet! :) I always kinda pinterest around until I find something that looks interesting that I know I can take some ingredients I already have and make a little something, so that's what happened here. 

So, I know that most food bloggers will write a book before they get to the main event, but I'm not a food blogger and I run my mouth too much as it is, so let's just get to it. ha!

Protein Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Well if this is not the most winner recipe I’ve ever put together, I don’t know what is …

For a while now, I have had a crumb cake in the back of my mind to make because Tanner has been obsessed with them this year! He loves loves them, so I thought I would try to recreate a healthier version …. I have to admit…. EPIC.

Okay, I’m done salivating over having another one and onto this beaut…

This is a SEVEN ingredient one! This one is WORTH YOUR TIME SPENT! I promise!!!! Make it now!

Let us begin:

This is where the magic happened…it’s not glamorous but this is what you need

Ingredients (for the cake): 

Coconut Flour (mine is from Whole Foods and I love this brand)

1/2 teaspoon Baking powder

1 tablespoon Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 tablespoon coconut flour

Eggs (actually only one egg white)

1/2 scoop Protein powder (isolate protein is used in the recipe-readjust macros based on protein powder used)

2 tablespoons canned pumpkin

one stevia packet

Directions: 

Pour all contents into a mug one at a time.

Stir vigurously!

It will then look like this :

Then just microwave for one minute and set out to cool!

While this is cooking for one minute and cooling, you can whip up the topping! It’s so simple and is only a few….

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce

cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to preference

Directions:

Mix and pour on top

The topping actually makes enough for like 8 cakes approximately (I made that up so when I entered the macros for the crumb portion, I selected my serving size as 1/8! Close enough, right?

Honestly, this is probably my favorite recipe to date however, I’m obsessed with pumpkin and we all know that!

The macros are FANTASTIC!!! Check it out! Remember, divide those crumb macros by 8 or forget the crumbs if you don’t wanna waste time because it’s fantastic without! :)

Homemade Cranberry Granola

I had two pretty girls say that they wanted to compare recipes with me. I can't say that mine would be the best to offer at a party just simply because it didn't stick together in bars as well as I'd hoped. So, I'm going to perfect it as time goes on. But, it was delicious and just for at home, it's perfect! 

Image

Directions:

Combine all ingredients and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. 

Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats 

1/2 cup protein granola (with a touch of dark chocolate) 

Image

(I got this at Walmart) 

1/2 cup dried cranberries (I used Great Value Brand) 

1/4 cup liquid egg whites 

1/4 cup PB2 (powdered peanut butter) mixed beforehand with 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk 

1/4 cup Natural Jiff Creamy PB

Mix all of these first then add in 1/4 cup honey to make everything stick.

Enjoy!! 

With love and granola, 

Katie
