Soufflé is really a fluffy egg dish.
Winter makes me want fluffy things.
A soufflé is a “light, fluffy baked dish made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients.”
If you can fluff an egg in the oven, why not in the microwave? It sounds strange… but it’s good! And quick.
Since my competition, I have quick eating chicken first thing, but I have yet to stop running late and
shoveling down eating breakfast in the car. A microwave breakfast is just the thing to make on the fly and go.
What better combo than peanut butter, apple, and egg? Protein and sweet, carb-y fruit to begin the day right. I love berries, but I missed heartier fruit during prep!
Apple Peanut Butter Soufflé
- 1/2 C egg whites
- 1/4 tsp no-salt baking powder
- 1/4 tsp butter extract (or vanilla)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Pinch of cloves
- 2 T peanut flour*
- 1 small apple, chopped
In a small (cereal) bowl, beat eggs, baking powder, and extract.
In another small bowl, combine remaining ingredients, tossing with apple pieces to coat. Add apple mixture to the egg, stirring to combine. Microwave for 1-1.5 mins.
Remove and top as desired (I used more apple and freshly grated nutmeg).
*Note: You can also use coconut flour or a combo of the two here – just as delicious but a more cake-like texture.
How have you enjoyed making co-workers, friends, or family stare with strange but good creations this week? The link up rules can be found here or by clicking on “Strange But Good” in the menu bar above. In short, I want to see what concoctions have earned you weird looks from co-workers, family and friends! Post your Strange But Good creations, grab the logo below for your blog, and link up here.
Reminder: next week there will not be a #strangebutgood link up. Being around family should be enough strange, and hopefully it’s a good time for all! 😉
What is your favorite quick breakfast?
Do you have a favorite breakfast fruit? I like apples at breakfast and cherries for dessert.
