Banana Carrot Cake For One

Posted Sep 22 2012 11:36pm
I absolutely love turning the oven on in the morning to help warm up the house on these early fall days!
I whipped this little cake up this morning and it made the house smell so good!
(Yes, I have a serious muffin/cake obsession!)

It was a bit of a Frankenstein muffin because it was going to just be carrot, but I had this stray banana half that I needed to use up. Brown bananas gross me out...I know I am not alone!
Seriously, you have to make one of these!

Banana Carrot Cake Muffin For One
3 Tbs. 100% Liquid Egg Whites
1/2 tsp. SweetLeaf Stevia1/4 cup Unsweetened Milk of Choice 1 tsp. Vanilla1/2 small Banana, mashed3 Baby Carrots, Shredded2 Tbs. Coconut Flour2 Tbs. Whole Wheat Flour3/4 tsp. Baking Powder1/4 tsp. Baking Soda 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice(I sprinkled part of it on top for pizzazz!)
Combine the wet ingredients, stir in the dry ingredients. Pour into prepared mini bundt or muffin pan.Bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes, or until done when tested.I topped mine with 2 tsp. Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Perfection!
Here's a peek at the inside! It didn't last long after this picture was taken and yes, that is a random piece of not mashed well banana sticking out of the front there in a rather rude way! Oh man, I want one right now! HA!!

There you have it, another muffin! Oh, did you want the nutritional stats?

Calories: 220
Carbs: 38g
Fat: 3g (from the coconut flour and my flax milk)
Protein: 10g

Just a little FYI: I use the recipe calculator on Spark Recipes . It is easy to use and I have found it to be pretty darn accurate. I do track my macros so it has been a very useful tool for me!
I also wanted to point out that everyone is different. My body does better on more carbs than protein. As a runner, it really works for me. I do transition my macros on strength days and go with a bit more protein. As with everything else, it is a science experiment from one day to the next...but I am a happy girl and loving my runner's body! You have to do what works for you, but you still need to have fun with it!
