Acorn Squash Cinnamon Swirl Cake for One

Officially one of my new snack obsessions inspired by @amandamclark. Had some pre-cooked small roasted acorn squash halves in the fridge. Makes a perfectly delicious, moist, clean cake for one! To DIE for. It saddens me that most people don't know how fun and delicious healthy eating is . . . ;)

Acorn Squash Cinnamon Swirl Cake for One


Half of a small acorn squash, cooked
1/2 tablespoon coconut flour
1 tablespoon Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl protein powder (or any flavored protein is fine)
1 packet Truvia
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons egg beaters
Cinnamon to taste


1. Blend together all ingredients (I used my Ninja).
2. Place in a small bowl sprayed with cooking spray.
3. Microwave at 30 second intervals for about 1 1/2-2 minutes. It all really depends on your microwave. Just watch it and don't overcook.

I topped mine with PB2 sauce. So moist and light and cake-y!!!
