Good Morning!

Here I go with another round of WIAW.

Peas and Crayons

Thanks Jenn for hosting.

First I want to share another protein snack that I made the other day!

I’ve really been trying to watch what I eat in preparation for the warm weather and Florida vacation coming up in a couple of months!  You know abs are made in the kitchen!  At least that’s what they say, so I’ve been trying to watch the sugar!

This is where I want to be right now…

When I crave a snack or a treat I try to make a healthy choice that includes protein!

Monday for my afternoon snack to hold off my stomach grumbles until dinner I made another microwave treat 🙂  I call this one Peanut Butter Mug Muffin.  This was the most moist and delicious muffin I have made in a while.  90 seconds to bliss.

PB Protein Mug Muffin

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 egg white  (I used the real thing)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stevia packet (optional)
  • Splash of almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chunky peanut butter

Mix all ingredients together in a mug until smooth.  Microwave for 90 seconds!

**  Top with more Peanut Butter if desired!
