Healthy Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

It’s safe to say that chocolate goes with just about anything. Last week I made a Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie and it was so delicious I knew I had to use those flavor combinations again.

 


 

So I quickly whipped up a batch of Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for only 99 calories each! Don’t even ask me how many muffins I ate because I will shamelessly tell you that I ate 5 muffins in one sitting!

 

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Protein Powder. Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout.

Healthy Triple Peanut Butter Cake

I just wish everyday could be Sunday. It’s always so peaceful–a perfect day for baking and lounging around and eating what you’ve baked. I’ve probably done more of the lounging around and eating part.

 

My boyfriend often asks me if I get sick of always making peanut butter flavored desserts and I reply with “What are you crazy man? Peanut Butter is life!” And then I don’t talk to him for the rest of the day! He clearly doesn’t know me at all. I never get sick of peanut butter. 😛


 

To show my boyfriend how not sick of peanut butter I am, I made a Triple Peanut Butter Cake using the Peanut Butter Frosting I posted yesterday.

 

 

Peanut butter cake layered with peanut butter Greek yogurt frosting and then topped with more frosting and peanut butter and chocolate chips.

 

I used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup protein powder. You can get 30% OFF using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website.

Healthy Strawberry Pop tarts (Paleo & Vegan option)

Healthy Pop Tarts with Strawberry Chia Filling!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1/4 c tapioca flour
  • 32g vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% OFF code PBHCOCO)
  • 2 tbsp. light butter or coconut oil, melted for vegan/paleo
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
    Filling
  • 3/4 c fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup or agave
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
    Frosting
  • 16g vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/8 tsp. beet root powder

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, stir together almond flour, tapioca flour and protein. Melt butter or coconut oil and stir into dry ingredients. Add almond milk and stir until a dough forms. Set dough a side while you make your filling.
  3. If using fresh strawberries, wash thoroughly before cutting off stems and chopping into small pieces. Add strawberries, syrup, water and lemon juice to a small frying pan and turn on medium heat. Once bubbles form, turn down heat to just a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 3-5 minutes or until strawberries are soft enough to smash with a spatula.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds. Let sit while you prepare your pop tarts.
  5. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 2x2 inch squares and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough until all dough has been used. Recipe will make 10 squares. Add 1 tablespoon of filling into the center of 5 of the squares. Place the remaining squares on top of the filling. Use a fork to crimp the edges together and poke holes in the top so the heat can escape. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  6. Once cooled, mix frosting ingredients together and glaze pop tarts. Decorate with sprinkles and enjoy!

Notes

You can reduce calories by using Sugar-Free Maple Syrup instead of 100% pure maple syrup.
