Pumpkin Protein Breakfast Cake


Serves 1

Special thanks to Cara for the thumbs up to repost this recipe. The original can be found on her blog, Cara’s Cravings, HERE.

I highly recommend trying out her recipes; they’re healthy and creative without being intimidating for a new cook. I reference them all the time for inspiration.

This is one of my favorites. A solid breakfast that feels indulgent, and great for a morning after a weights session given the extra protein.


½ cup pumpkin puree

¼ cup liquid egg substitute or 2 egg whites

½ scoop vanilla protein powder (I use EAS as it mixes well and is good for cooking)

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 packet Splenda or preferred sweetener

1 teaspoon peanut butter


In microwave-safe bowl, mix well the pumpkin puree, egg substitute or egg, protein powder, sweetener and pumpkin pie spice.

Cook on medium-high for 2 minutes.

In separate bowl, warm the peanut butter in the microwave and drizzle over the cake.
