Healthy Waffle Cone S’more Biscuits

DSC_0162

Experimenting with healthy food is hands down my favorite past time; right after holding baby animals and well, actually eating the food I experiment with.

I’m fairly new at baking with yeast. I usually just slap some healthy flours together, add some protein powder, definitely some peanut butter, throw it in the oven and call it a cookie. I’m trying to expand my horizons a bit so I picked up some yeast and was set on making big, fluffy, baked protein donuts but I quickly learned that coconut flour doesn’t work with yeast as well as whole wheat pastry flour. That’s okay, because these sweet biscuits are utterly soft and delicious!

This was my first time attempting to make a healthy pizza dough and I was quite impressed with myself! It was absolutely delicious, a little dense but light enough that you can hold it like a slice of pizza.

I topped mine with chocolate hazelnut spread, strawberries and blackberries and it was perfection. Tomorrow I’m going for peanut butter and bananas!

Macros listed are just for the pizza dough and not including the chocolate hazelnut spread.

Almond Butter Stuffed Healthy Banana Bread with Cookie Crumble

DSC_0105

I can’t think of an simpler thing to make with my overly ripe bananas than to bake a loaf of banana bread–except freezing them for ice cream or blending them for a smoothie. Okay, I can think of a ton of other delicious things to do with overly ripe bananas but this almond butter stuff banana loaf has protein cookie crumbles on top which makes it the BEST and HEALTHIEST banana bread I have ever had!

DSC_0174

The almond butter center gets crisp when you bake it and gives the loaf a nice bit of crunch in every bite!
