Moist, Low-Calorie Microwave Protein Fudge Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 Egg whites (**If using liquid egg whites use 1/2 cup and add 20 calories)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin (3 T applesauce or other starchy carb works well too!)
  • 2 T coconut flour* (1 T also works, and results in 40 fewer calories)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • stevia or other granular sweetener to taste
  • 1 T. cocoa powder (Hershey’s Special dark cocoa is best!)
Directions:
Spray a soup bowl with a very light layer of oil to prevent sticking (not even necessary but makes cleaning up a bit easier). Mix ingredients well with fork, whisk or spatula. Microwave for 2:30-4+ min on High (depends on your microwave, altitude and the whim of the cupcake gods.)
Makes one HUGE serving.  155 calories **; 12 g protein; 16.5g carb; 4.5g fiber; 1.75g fat  Stellar stats.
