Kim of Beechies Bakehouse was kind enough to send me some samples of her protein bakery treats, and to say I was excited when they came in the mail is an understatement.
Of course, I couldn’t wait to devour in one of the treats, so I went with my number one choice (as always): the chocolate!
I. Loved. This. The brownie on its own is kind of chewy, and doesn’t quite have the exact moist texture of a real brownie, but you certainly wouldn’t miss the real deal with this brownie anyways. It’s great on its own, but I do prefer to mix it with other things, such as yogurt or ice cream. It makes it seem more like a real brownie that way. That being said, I still had a hard time trying to make these last for at least more than 1 day, and I had 6 of them!
Next, I tried the carrot cake mug cake.
The smell was ah-mazing. It reminded of the aroma that fills the house during Christmastime. When I was mixing the batter, I had to sneak a taste, and it was as tasty as it smelled! Perfectly sweet and not overwhelmed with spice. When trying the final product though, it seemed like the sweetness died down and the cake got a little dry. Combining it with the yogurt in this parfait definitely helped bring some of the moisture back into the cake. It was still good, but after trying the batter, I was a little disappointed with the final texture. However, it is also a possibility that I cooked it for too long for the size of the mug I was using.
Up next on my list was the banana nut muffin.
I loved this one! It started as an opposite reaction of the carrot cake mug cake. The batter didn’t really excite me, but once it was cooked and I took a bite, it was amazing. There is a mild sweetness to the cake, and there are walnut pieces inside to give it a nice break in texture and adds warmth to the dish.
Finally, and sadly, the last product I tried was the tropical cake.
The batter smelled amazing. I was hesitant to try this because a warm tropical cake doesn’t sound like the best cup of tea. However, I was proven wrong with first bite. There were little pineapple chunks in it, giving it a very true tropical feel. I was immediately transported back to my vacation in Hawaii. This cake was good warm, but also delicious in a refreshing green berry smoothie!
Overall, I highly recommend these products. High in protein, low in carbs and sugar, and they taste amazing. You can use “hana10” for 10% off your purchase as well!
