In keeping with the excitement of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, here’s a recipe that’s perfect for a quick breakfast sure to get us through a long day of scavenging on Jakku. The “Rey’s Portion Green Muffin” recipe is inspired by that lovely little green muffin we see puff out of one of Unkar’s portions mixed with water.
I’ve adapted this recipe from The Diva Dish, substituting a tablespoon of coconut flour with a scoop of protein powder. I figure that living on Jakku and completely dependent on gaining sustenance from powder in a pre-packaged portion, Unkar’s portions are Rey’s main source of nutrients.
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of spinach
- 2 Tbs. of almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
- 1 Tbs. of coconut flour
- 1 Tbs. protein powder
- 1 Tbs. chia seeds
- 2 Tbs. of dry shredded coconut
- 2 Tbs. quick oats
- 1/2 tsp. of baking powder
Spray a mug or bowl (I used a large round mug to simulate the shape of the muffin from the film) with a non-stick cooking spray.
Blend the banana, egg, spinach, and almond milk in a blender.
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (coconut flour, protein powder, chia seeds, shredded coconut, quick oats, and baking powder). Add the wet mixture to the dry until you have a batter that is fully mixed. Pour the mixture into the mug/bowl and microwave at full power for 4-6 minutes. I recommend starting at 4 minutes and then adding on another minute or two if the center is still raw.
Once the muffin is ready. Flip the muffin out of the mug and onto a plate (watch out that the mug may be HOT). Feel free to eat it as is, or add your favorite nut butter and/or fruit.
