Late-Night SnackFace

After dinner is usually when I get my SnackFace on. In fact, that’s how this blog name originated. My mom and I were chillin’ after dinner when she announced that she had her SnackFace on and— surprise of all surprises— so did I! I’m pretty much always ready to eat.

While traveling the low-carb road, savory snacks have been no problem. Cheese, cottage cheese, turkey slices, more cheese. Easy. It’s the sweet stuff that trips me up. Wait, chocolate has carbs? WAIT, cereal does, too? Kidding.

But seriously. I need something at the end of every day to cap off my day of eating. Thanks to some very sweet readers, I’ve been noshing on Deb’s muffin. I MEAN, I have been enjoying her recipe for microwave muffin cake things. I’m calling them things because they still freak me out a little in that they can be made in the microwave.

I will be the first to call myself out on this: Whenever I see someone trying to eat a replica of a real thing, I roll my eyes and think, “They’re out of their muthafluffin’ mind.” I keep it inside most of the time. But like any good hypocrite, I have been schooled. It’s been broughten. (<Intentional grammatically poor reference.) The masses have been right and I have been so very wrong. Judgy Wudgy was a bear, and that bear was ME.

OK, you get it now. What I’m saying is that the following is not a cupcake or muffin…:But it is pretty damn good when you need something sweet and satisfying while working out like Chris Evans prepping for his Captain America role.

I deem this a French Toast Protein (Motha)Fluffin’:

Based off Deb’s smart recipe, here’s what goes into this fluffin’:

  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T Sun Warrior vanilla protein blend
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 packet Truvia
  • 2 egg whites (more like 1.5 but it’s hard…and ridiculous… to add half an egg white)
  • 1 1/2 T applesauce
Mix the ingredients together in a PAM-coated coffee mug. Microwave for 1:45-2 minutes. Top with cinnamon and maple syrup (you know I used the fake stuff…the one fake I really, really love).
A week from now, I’ll be straight late-night SnackFacing with peanut butter Cheerios, but for now, this works fabulously.
Ciao for now,
Question: What’s your favorite late-night snack?
