I just made a cake…. for breakfast!!!

The photos may not be the best, but at 6am, I am NOT taking the time to stage a photo-op. Besides, it’s the taste that matters!

My tummy has been unhappy with my breakfast choices of late. For the last few days, breakfast has been certified gluten free oatmeal. The result has been days of bloating, gas, cramping, and ……… My fellow “glu-tards” out there get the picture. I’m not happy about this recent development. I used to be able to tolerate certified gluten free oats. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!!!

I needed something to cheer me up this morning. I needed cake. So I made cake, and it was good. It was also good for me, so that makes it even better!

I took my normal sugar-free mug cake recipe and replaced the cocoa powder with my favorite, vegan protein powder and VOILA! In under two minutes, you get a vegan, gluten free, sugar free, high protein cake that you can eat for breakfast! You’re welcome. I will be accepting my Nobel Prize in 2014.

  1. So you know the protein in oat is very very similar to the protein in gluten which means it can be really difficult for Celiac’s to tolerate GF oatmeal. My GI doc told me to stay away from it! I only indulge a few times a year and sparingly at that. I am glad you found something else this morning.

  2. This looks great! I was looking for new and exciting GF breakfast ideas, and I’m excited to try this. Only thing, though – what would you suggest as an alternative to almond milk? (I have a nut allergy). Thanks!
