Now that it’s cooler outside, I’ve been passing over the post-workout smoothies I had all summer long for a warm protein cake. And since it’s pumpkin season, I had to experiment with a pumpkin version! And since who doesn’t need a little chocolate after a hard workout, I added in some mini chocolate chips which melt perfectly.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Protein Cake
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
½ cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup liquid as needed
Mix together all ingredients and microwave 60-90 seconds until outside is firm but inside is slightly gooey.
