Good Morning!

Every morning I wake up and I have so many options for breakfast and it is so hard to choose just one thing to eat.  Well I can’t eat everything in my house, but lately I’ve really been diggin’ my Muesli Fusion cereal.

I got a little creative in the kitchen and made this cake.  I’ll tell you why in a minute.

First I’ll tell you a little bit about the main ingredient in this cake:

Muesli Fusion was one of our sponsor’s at Blend Retreat 2013 and this is where I instantly became hooked on their products!

Muesli is a healthy cereal that can be enjoyed hot or cold and  is only made with good-for-you ingredients like whole grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruit.  The great thing is, they do all this without added sugar, bonus!  The nuts and seeds in Muesli provide protein, fiber, and omega-3’s, along with other vitamins that our bodies need!

Today I want to share a recipe with you guys that is inspired by my very own bag of Muesli Cereal!  Muesli is having a recipe contest where I could win a gift card to Lululemon or Whole Foods for posting this awesome healthy cake recipe!

So check out this recipe I came up with:  Your mouth will be watering before you even take it out of the oven!

Muesli Cinnamon Bun Cake with Coconut Butter Drizzle

IMG_20130607_205621

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Morning Zen Gluten Free Muesli
  • 1 tbsp Almond Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup (sugar free or regular)
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup Applesauce- no nadded sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch Salt

Directions:

  • Spray an individual ramekin with cooking spray (smart balance)
  • Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
  • Pour batter into ramekin
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Drizzle with Coconut Butter
  • Eat the Entire thing!!

For Coconut Butter Drizzle:

Simply Microwave 1 tbsp coconut butter for 30 seconds.   Be careful not to burn.   I used Nikki’s Coconut ButterMacadamia Nut Cookie Flavor

Pour Over Muesli Cinnamon Cake and Enjoy!

This single serving cake is so moist and delicious.  The cinnamon aroma reminded me of a cinnamon bun coming straight out of the oven!  Anyway, Who says you can’t have cake for breakfast, or a snack, or dessert?!  I say eat it whenever you want because it is healthy!   You can even split the recipe in half and make 2 muffin size portions out of it!  If I were you I would eat the whole thing though  🙂

With about 10 grams of protein and little sugar you cannot go wrong with this cake!

As I told you before, this is a recipe for a contest and one winner is selected (hopefully me) by the number of Pinterest pins that they receive so I would love it if you would click over to my  Pinterest page and repin this recipe!   Thank you, Thank you 🙂

SATURDAY

We started Saturday and Sunday off with  hard-core boot camps led by GPP Fitness.  I got absolutely zero good pictures on these morning so some of these will be borrowed 🙂  Don’t worry they will receive credit!

Who doesn’t love cheese seriously?

After our wonderful breakfast we headed back to our rooms to yet another surprise!!

more swag

Core Power Protein Shakes, Zevia (one exploded in my suitcase on the way home), Soy Joy and Attune Foods chocolate bars. How awesome!  We were nervous that all the swag wasn’t going to fit in our bags!  I made it ALL fit though!!

HIKING

After acting like it was Christmas time from all our free gifts, we got for our hike up the mountains!  I’ve actually never been on a REAL hike, so I can say this was my first, and it was awesome.  It was a little muddy though, so some people stayed back and did Zumba, but I’m glad I trucked through the mud and did it.  This was one of my favorite activities, mud and all!

yikes dirty shoes

Some people tossed theirs after the hike but I washed mine and wore them home, good as new!

Our hike  sponsored by ProBar so we had snacks to take with us!

The hike was about 4.5 miles… That long of a hike after a tough workout= Sore Legs!

We headed out…

Hint Hint: It’s the only guy!

yay hiking the girls

After the hike we went back to the hotel, I washed my shoes, and we showered before our next snack break.  We were super pumped to meet Miss USA and try some of Onnit’s Walnut Almond Cashew Butter and the Macadamia Cacao Cherry Butter on Rice Cakes.  The Walnut was my favorite!  I could eat it straight from the jar, as if this is something new!

After our snack break we headed into town!  We hit up the most amazing store ever.  I loved it!

We then headed to dinner, had some drinks, and a great night!

wow sat night revised

yes the gang

After a few drinks we had to go back and try Momma B’s (Janetha’s mom) famous Utah scones.  I think I ate 4 with honey apple butter, omg!

utah scones so good

Off to bed after filling my belly so I could get up bright and early for bootcamp and breakfast.

Sunday’s breakfast was hosted by Chobani, the official blend Sponsor– heck yes!

There was chobani pancakes, smoothies, oatmeal with all kinda of granola, and an omelet station!  It was amazing.

Then we headed to the airport 😦  I didn’t want to leave.  There were so many girls that I wanted to meet and didn’t get to talk to but I’m so happy for the relationships that I did make!  I met lots of ladies that I know I will have lasting relationships with.

IMG_20130519_135317

And I saved the best for last…  What a great snack for being stuck in an airport for 3 hours.
