So I was having a little craving for something outside the box for breakfast again on the weekend, so came up with this carrot muffin thing. It was pretty good - a little on the dry side cold, but serving it up warm helped.
I "baked" it in a 4" round by about 2" high glass bowl greased with CO. I only ate half the recipe at one time though, dividing it over two days.
2 Tbsp ground flax/flax meal (I like the dark for this recipe)
1 Tbsp unflavoured protein powder (I use egg, whey or vanilla whey would work too)
1/4 tsp glucomannan powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pkg of sweetener of your choice (I used sugar twin, eqiv to 2 tsp sugar)
1 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
1 Tbsp chopped raw pecans
Sprinkle of sea salt
Mix these together until all ingredients are combined thoroughly.
1 Tbsp CO, melted (could use butter), then mix in
1 tsp water
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 Tbsp loosely packed shredded raw carrots (about 1/2" of a large carrot)
Whisk all the wet ingredients with a fork until all is incorporated. Then quickly mix into the dry ingredients, mixing until all is combined into a "batter".
Immediately pour into the greased dish and microwave ~ full power until firm in the center. This took 2 mins, 20 seconds on my unit.
Remove from oven, let rest for a few minutes, then loosen the edges of the muffin with a sharp knife. Turn out and let cool.
To eat it, I sliced it into four slices, and ate two by lightly toasting it in a skillet, then topping with a drizzle of SF maple syrup and more cinnamon. If you eat dairy, you could make a cream cheese "frosting" by combining 2 Tbsp of cream cheese/1 tbsp butter/splash of vanilla extract/pkg of sweetener.
Store any part uneaten in the fridge. Enjoy
