Healthy Single-Serving Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

I don’t have a lot to say about this decadent cake for one.

 

And honestly, I do I even need to?

I mean, it’s a peanut butter cake with chocolate chips—no sharing required! I think it speaks for itself.

 

I will say that this cake was not made in a microwave because frankly, I really don’t care for microwaved cake. If I’m going to have cake, I’m going to take the extra few minutes and let it bake itself to perfection in the oven!

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Happy Saturday Night! I plan on spending mine in front of the television with a pumpkin pie milkshake in hand while I binge watch crime investigation shows. Ahh… the perfect Saturday night!

This unbelievably low calorie milkshake was made using Arctic Zero frozen dessert but you can replace it with any low calorie ice cream that you prefer. I also recommend Halo Top if you don’t mind dairy.

Healthy Maple Walnut Blondies

I have had this gigantic bag of walnuts sitting in my cabinet for what feels like years now. Okay, it’s probably been like two weeks but as a recipe creator and food blogger, your cabinets fill up with food rather quickly and can become a cluttered mess if you aren’t constantly using up your ingredients.

 

What better way to use up all of my walnuts than to make healthy blondies with no refined sugar or palm oil. These blondies can be made sugar free for those who have to watch their sugar intake, gluten free and are totally vegan!

I feel like maple is such an underrated flavor. I miss the old days at Starbucks when they had maple walnut scones and I can’t wait for the day that they finally come out with a maple flavored latte! *drooling*

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Protein Bars

It’s no secret; I love peanut butter and chocolate.

 

chocoalte-pb-protein-bars


Don’t tell anyone but it’s a nice change from all the pumpkin recipes I’ve been pumping out lately. See what I did there?

 

The other day I stumbled on a great Instagram account @eatingbrofood (you should go follow her) and she posted a protein bar recipe that she made in her food processor and I was absolutely dumb founded. Why I have never thought to put any of my simple protein bar recipes into a food processor is beyond me! Have you ever tried to hand mix peanut butter, whey protein and sticky syrup to make a protein bar? It’s not easy and requires a little more effort than one would think. Her simple idea got me so excited that I had to make protein bars right away.

 

Behold, peanut butter (because duh!) protein bars topped with peanut peanuts and sugar free chocolate.

Pumpkin Hummus – Dip it or Spread it!

It’s only the beginning of September and I’ve already made quit a few posts using Fall flavors and I’m not about to stop. Today I had a hankering for a sweet pumpkin dip. I wanted it to be light and fluffy – not too dense so I opted out of grinding up nuts and using that as a base. Finally, I landed on BEANS (sorry to all my paleo followers) and made the most epic pumpkin hummus protein dip or spread…

Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats

There is no shortage of oats in my house. In fact, I have oats just about every day. If I’m not making pancakes or cookies using oat flour then I’m prepping myself overnight oats to eat for breakfast when I am on the go. Like when I have to be up for work at 3:30 in the morning, overnight oats save me because the first thing I want to do in the morning is eat and the last thing I want to do is make myself breakfast. Ya feel?

 

I usually go for the simple kind: oats, milk, chocolate protein powder and cocoa powder. Occasionally, I will throw in some chia seeds or flax for a little fiber. Today, I decided to spice up my oat flavor a bit and made Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats – complete with apple chunks and cinnamon sticks.

Healthy Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Bites

I love all fruit but I especially love summer-time fruits like apricots, cherries, strawberries, kiwi…I could go on forever but I don’t want to bore you with my fruit obsession. I will say that I have some good news about these blueberry muffin breakfast bites, I mean besides the obvious fact that they taste like dessert for breakfast, you can make these blueberry muffin bites any time of the year by using dried wild blueberries. WIN!

 

Blueberry-Muffin-Breakfast-Bites


 

I grew up eating dried fruit but for whatever reason, I have never had a dried blueberry before and like a dodo, I didn’t realize they even existed until I was in the grocery store the other day. I was so excited I bought a few bags and for the last few days I’ve been day dreaming about all the blueberry treats I plan to make with them.

 

Like all dried fruit, these dried berries have key differences to their fresh counterpart. Significantly, the calories and sugar are quite a bit more when the blueberry is dried. A cup of fresh blueberries contains about 84 calories and 15 grams of sugar but one cup of dried blueberries has over 500 calories and 100 grams of sugar. Portion size is key when it comes to the dried berry. Although they may be tiny, they pack a nutritional punch that often qualifies them to be a super-fruit and for good reason! They are packed with antioxidants and loads of fiber—especially when dried! And in my opinion, when baking with dried blueberries, it gives you a more intense blueberry flavor. Perhaps, it’s from all the extra sugar packed into those shriveled up blueberries but none the less, they are delicious and fiber-licious and that’s a win in my book!
