Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! Yes that’s all you are hearing from me and you better not get tired of it because I’ve got another recipe on the way! But seriously guys, this little cake was such a tasty treat after my workout. 100% guilt-free and 100% satisfaction guaranteed! (Unless your not a pumpkin lover…in which case, why are you here?) Haha, I’m just kidding, possibly..This dessert is so cute and simple to make! It’s a great healthy halloween treat you can even put together with your kids. It also has a good dose of vitamin A thanks to the awesome pumpkin! Try it and let me know what you think! If you have instagram, post a picture and tag me in it! 🙂 (sammysamgirl)

1 Minute Pumpkin Cake

Serves 1 

Ingredients:

1/3 cup pureed,canned or fresh & drained  pumpkin(not pumpkin pie filling!)

2 tbsp almond flour

1/2 tbsp coconut oil*(low-fat option below)

2 tbsp egg whites

1/4 tsp cinnamon(or more to taste!)

1 tsp Truvia sweeter(or more to taste, could sub in another granulated sweetener)

1/8 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp baking powder(add slightly more for a lighter cake)

1 tbsp raisins

optional: 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, chopped pecans

*Feel free to leave this out and replace with 1/2 tbsp 0% greek yogurt for a low-fat option( or more pumpkin) I cannot personally vouch for the results but I have made similar desserts using greek yogurt and they were still quite delicious!

Directions: Spray a small mug or ramekin with oil. Mix all ingredients together leaving cinnamon and Truvia for last(to taste) & top mixture with raisins. Microwave on high for 1:30-1:40 (okay I lied, not 1min but I have the worst microwave ever, so yours may take less time. DO NOT OVERBAKE! Just keep an eye on it, It won’t rise a lot, that’s okay). Now take out of the microwave, top with light whip cream if you have any(we were out!) and enjoy!

Hey guys!! ahh, it’s been too long! I’m so sorry I’ve neglected my poor website. I have been super busy with school and working on my own fitness.  Anyways…because it’s beautiful fall now, I thought I’d celebrate my return with an awesome recipe inspired by the season! These oats are superrr creamy and rich & very filling! I ate double this serving size and was extremely full so I lowered it down to half the serving size which is still a lot! But they are so tasty,  you will have no problem finishing the bowl!

Creamy Maple Pumpkin Pie Oats

Serves 1

Here’s the recipe:

-1/3 cup instant oatmealfr_3133_size880

-dash of salt

-2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

-1/4 cup canned pumpkin

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-1/2 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)

-pinch of ginger, nutmeg & allspice

-2 tsp Truvia (or more to taste)

-1/4 ounce of pecans (about 1.5-2 tbsp)

-1/5 tbsp PB & Co Mighty Maple Butter * (or sub, 1/2 tsp natural PB + 1/4 tsp maple extract or 2 tsp sugar-free or natural maple syrup )

Directions: Combine almond milk oats and salt in a medium sized microwavable bowl and microwave for 1:40-2:00min or until oats have reached your desired consistency(you want them a little runny since you will be adding pumpkin and PB). Next stir your pumpkin into the cooked oats, add your spices & sweetener, top with maple butter and pecans! Stir just before digging in. Enjoy your beautiful fall breakfast!

**Tip** These oats would also be great topped with apple slices or raisins & paired with a side of scrambled egg whites**
