Chocolate Lava "Cake"

Chocolate Lava Cake!

Oh boy people, this one is good. Brilliant even! And delicious and chocolatey lava-y cakey. You make the batter for the chocolate protein waffle. In a glass bowl, mix:

1 heaping scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Cytosport Complete Whey – I think a good, rich, chocolatey protein powder is essential for this one)
1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder
2 packets splenda
about 1 egg white
couple small drops of vanilla
a tiny bit of baking powder
couple splashes of water

Use a little less water than you would for the waffle, you want it slightly thicker, but not much. Microwave for 38 seconds. Yes, 38. At least in my microwave.

Voila! Chocolate lava cake. Heaven in a bowl. If I wasn’t dieting I would seriously make another bowl of it right now. I’d even serve it as dessert to someone not dieting!

Hickory Smoked Tuna Cakes

Hickory Smoked Tuna Cakes

1 packet Starkist Hickory Smoked flavor tuna
couple TBS sweet onion or scallions
1-2 TBS seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup fat free mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup eggbeaters

Mix all in a bowl, should be fairly wet but not soupy. Spray a skillet with nonstick spray. Form 3-4 tuna cakes/patties. Brown on both sides. Should be golden on both sides but the middle should still be moist, you don’t want it too dried out.

Amy’s Granola

Amy’s Granola

1 cup rolled oats (dry)
¼ cup steel cut oats (dry)
¼ cup unsalted almonds
cinnamon (I like a LOT, but somewhere between 1 tsp and 1 Tbs to taste)
2-3 packets of Splenda
1 capful of sugar free vanilla syrup (like Torani or DaVinci)
2 Tbs of honey
1 tsp vegetable oil

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the vanilla and water. Mix the honey and vegetable oil in a little bowl. Put in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds. Pour over the dry mixture. The mix should be very dry with just a hint of moisture to make some of it stick together a tiny bit. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread the mixture on the foil into a single layer and bake at 325 for about 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool on the cookie sheet – it will crisp up a bit as it cools.
