Let’s try again – Chocolate Apple Mini Cakes


29. October 2013 by swissfitchick

You may wonder about the title – but I just felt so bad that these mini cakes didn’t get the attention they deserve last Friday. The pics weren’t good and they kind of disappeared in Friday’s post with all the other Favorites I talked about. I also made 1-2 twists this weekend and they turned out even better! PLUS, I changed the name a bit – ‘Mini Cakes’ seemed to be more appropriate, since the consistency is more cake-y than muffin-y. So today I want to share the recipe again and give you some nice pics with it too!

Chocolate Apple Muffins: 


1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Growing Naturals)

2 heaped tbsp raw unsweetened cacao powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tbsp almond meal

2 grated apples (medium)

3 tbsp honey or sweetener of your choice

2 tbsp almond butter or coconut oil

1 egg, 2 eggwhites



Preheat oven to 200°C.

Mix the dry ingredient together.

Mix in the egg & eggwhites.

Mix in the grated apples.

Mix in honey and coconut oil/almond butter.

Spray 8 little muffin forms and pour batter into them.

Bake for 20 minutes – you can stick in a knife, if just a little batter stucks to it take them out, otherwise they’ll be too dry!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
