Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday; I’m back for What I Ate Wednesday with Jenn with a bit of a twist today.
How it works: you are paired with a “penpal” (a reader/blogger) who you are to send a box filled with fun, foodie things ($15 max). Someone is also paired with you, whom you receive a goodie box from. It was a lot of fun to put together a yummy package and also receive mail… you should definitely sign up!
I received my box from a reader named Stefanie. Today I am sharing how I used the dates, shredded coconut and walnuts Stefanie sent me to celebrate What I Ate Wednesday.
What I Ate
Breakfast: If you follow me on Instagram (you obviously should) you’d know that this past weekend I made my first successful mug cake… for breakfast! I used the recipe from Kylie’s Instagram page (with a few adjustments) and holy cow, it was incredible. So obviously I made it again yesterday.
Ready for the surprise? Can you spot it?
A peanut butter stuffed date! Start salivating…
Peanut Butter & Banana Breakfast Mug Cake
Adapted from Kylie at Imma Eat That
Ingredients (Makes one serving)
- 1/3 cup oat flour
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1/4 tsp. of vanilla
- 1 date, pitted
- 1 tbsp. of peanut butter (or any other nut butter), divided
- Combine oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
- In a separate bowl, combing egg whites, mashed banana and vanilla.
- Add egg white mixture to oat flour mixture and mix well.
- Stuff the date with 1/2 tbsp. of peanut butter
- Grease (I used cooking spray) a large mug and pour 1/3 of the batter into it.
- Add the date to the mug and cover with the remaining batter.
- Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
- Top with remaining peanut butter and sliced banana.
Snack: Okay back to the eats. My snack was not as exciting. Three mini yellow plums and a zucchini muffin [recipe]. And the plums were kinda sour…
Snack: I was incredibly hungry in the afternoon… maybe from my morning workout! So I had an apple, two breakfast cookies [recipe] and a granola bar [recipe]. The granola bar is the only thing pictured… sawwy…
Dinner: I was oddly craving an omelette for dinner… who am I kidding? Me craving breakfast food? Not odd at all. So I whipped up egg whites, spinach and peppers, sliced an avocado, mashed sweet potato with cinnamon and walnuts and enjoyed my
breakfast dinner. Random combo but quite delicious! Oh and I also had a peach.
Dessert: After dinner, I had some plain greek yogurt (yes with honey), frozen blueberries a drizzle of almond butter… topped it all off with shredded coconut. Not so pretty but yummy!
And now I’m full.
