Based on my Microwave Protein Carrot Cake recipe.
Strange But Good: Microwave Protein Zucchini Bread
- 1/2 C grated zucchini (90g)
1.5 scoop Growing Naturals Rice Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1/4 tsp no sodium baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 egg white
- 1 T applesauce (no sugar added, can also use pumpkin puree)
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- 1/4 tsp butter extract (optional)
- ~8-9 drops NuNaturals lemon liquid stevia
- “Icing” (see below)
Grate zucchini, squeeze out excess moisture, and set aside.
Place dry ingredients in bowl and stir to combine. Stir in wet ingredients. Mix in grated zucchini.
Transfer to a greased (I use PAM) cereal bowl and microwave for 2-2.5 mins (mine took 2:15). Tip the cake out onto a plate and top as desired.
My cake was topped with a cheese cake icing made by combining Greek yogurt with cinnamon, ginger, cake batter drops, and stevia.
