Keto Microwave Fudge Brownie for One

Keto Microwave Fudge Brownie for One

Guys, let’s be real today. I know I will not win any awards for the best photography skills with this post but honestly, it’s not easy to take a photo of something in a bowl, let me tell you. Especially when your Nikon camera of years decides to spontaneously call it quits and all you’re left with is your Iphone 7 camera which honestly probably has cocoa powder or something on the lens considering the amount of baking I do around it…but any-who, this recipe I promise tastes better than it looks. It’s super simple to make and makes an easy dessert for later. (I typically just make it in the morning and then leave it in the fridge until I’m ready to eat it for dessert in the evening). It’s the perfect small fix for any chocolate craving..

THE BEST KETO CHOCOLATE-CHIP MUFFINS (3)

What if I told you I made low-carb muffins that are high in protein, high in fibre, contain 0 added sugars and actually taste GOOD? Like not just  “okay they are alright for being healthy” kinda good but rather, good as in “wow these are delicious I could eat the whole plate right now…but like I won’t(okay maybe just 2…)”.

Good morning everyone! Did you sleep in late? Forget to have breakfast or just in need of a healthy treat? Look no further…

These pancakes will fill your chocolate craving while also filling you up for a good while! They are packed with protein, loaded with fibre and the raspberries make them a good source of vitamin C. But more importantly they are filled with coconutty, chocolatey goodness, so get ready to indulge.

Serves: 1(double recipe  for a larger serving) Makes 2 Pancakes.

Ingredients:

-2 tbsp oat flour(about 1/4 cup instant oatmeal ground up)

-2 tbsp your favourite vanilla or chocolate protein powder(I used french vanilla designer whey)

-1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

-1/4 tsp baking powder

-dash of of salt

-optional: sprinkle of sugar-free chocolate jell-o mix

-1 tbsp greek yogurt

-2 tbsp almond milk(or milk of choice)

-1 tbsp egg white(half a large egg white)

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-1-2 tsp or more, sweetener of choice to taste

-1/2 a tbsp (or 8g) mini chocolate chips

-2 tsp shredded or desiccated coconut(5g)

-1/2 cup frozen raspberries, divide into 1/4 cup for pancakes, 1/4 cup for topping(just combine sweetener and raspberries in microwave for about 40 sec. and stir/mash, serve hot)

-optional for added coconut flavour: add 1-2 drops coconut extract to batter or fry in coconut oil

Directions: 

Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat(spray with cooking oil or use coconut oil). In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients then add wet until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips and coconut. Pour about 1/2 the batter into the pan and use a fork or spoon to slightly spread the batter(or shake the pan a bit). Then add a few raspberries  to the pancake and after about 30 sec or so(depending on how hot your pan is) or when the underside comes off and looks cooked, flip and cook on the other side. Don’t over cook! Repeat with remaining batter and serve with raspberry sauce and optional syrup if desired.

I like to just eat these straight up and dip them in raspberry sauce. You can freeze them and save them as a quick on the go snack. Enjoy!
