Healthy Reese's Cake... for One?

I know I just posted more clean microwave desserts yesterday... But, last night, I created what I'd consider my best microwave dessert yet, and I couldn't wait any longer to post about it! I remade it tonight and used three different kinds of peanut butters. I'm addicted and I don't even mind it! It came out extra good tonight, though... I don't know if it was the pumpkin pie ice cream or the sliced apple with it, but it was incredible.

It's even better than it looks. That's a promise.
(I forgot to add baking powder when making it the first time, therefore it rose oddly. Oopsies!)

1 tbsp dry oats
1/2 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 packets of Stevia/sweetener
1 egg white
1 tbsp almond milk
dash of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp milk chocolate protein powder
1/5 overripe banana, mashed
1 tbsp pure canned pumpkin puree (doesn't provide flavor, but makes it moist and fluffy and perfect!)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp (or more) nut butter of choice (I used a bit of Biscoff, White Chocolate Wonderful, AND Planter's banana nut granola!)
optional sprinkle of granola (recommended!)

Mix everything incredibly well, then pour into a mug.
Stuff your peanut/nut butter the best you can into the mix. Top with a sprinkle of granola, if wanted. (I recommend it! It gave mine an awesome textured bottom!)
Microwave for 2 minutes...
*99.9% chance yours will have rose normal if you added baking powder. Mine did today! Haha.*
Top with ALL THE THINGS! Including even more nut (or cookie) butter when it's still warm so it melts off and makes a wonderful gooey mess surrounding it. I also recommend eating it with clean or not-so-clean pumpkin/pumpkin pie flavored ice cream or frozen yogurt. They go hand-in-hand.
Trust me.

Are you guys sick of my microwaved, clean desserts yet? Because I'm not. And I may continue to post them as often as I am. Depends how creative I can get! Hahah. I hope you all are enjoying them, though, and aren't too annoyed of them yet! I'll try some other recipes out soon... Promise!

P.S. I know this isn't necessarily packed with protein, but you can of course compromise and use JUST protein powder, or add even more! Do whatcha please and experiment for yourself!
