Protein Pineapple Cake

So pineapple upside down cake is one of my favorites.  Here is a healthy protein packed version that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Protein Pineapple Cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small loaf pan, grease the pan and add 1/2 cup crushed pineapple with some of the juice.  I then sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon.

In a blender, add all of the ingredients and blend to make a smooth batter.
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg white
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp. chia seeds (optional)
1/4 cup oats
1 TBSP honey
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, I use Isopure vanilla

Slowly pour batter on top of pineapple and bake for 23-28 minutes.  Makes 2 servings.
