Healthy Vanilla Cherry Overnight Oats

 

Healthy cherry vanilla protein oatmeal prepped a couple hours before serving or the night before–overnight oats!

 


On days when I have to get up early for work, I always prep some oats to take with me because it’s the easiest and healthiest option I’ve discovered so far. It takes only a few minutes to prep and keeps me full all morning.

 

 

I get asked all the time what kind of protein is best to bake with.  I always, always use PEScience Select protein. You can get 30% off all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout.

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies

 

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies made vegan, gluten-free and made using only 6 ingredients!

 


 

I would probably say about 98% of all the recipes I pin on Pinterest never get made or even get a second look at but there was one recipe I stumbled on a few weeks ago and I just couldn’t get it out of my head.  Today, I finally decided to make this recipe–kind of. I changed it up a bit and since my scale was suddenly broken when I went to measure my ingredients (the original recipe is listed in grams) I had to just wing it. And for winging it, I have to say these tasty treats turned out pretty amazing. So amazing that I ate two before I went to the gym and two right when I got home from the gym! I hope to control myself for the rest of the evening.

 

 

The original recipe that I adapted mine from was found on Fanny The Foodie blog along with a million other delicious looking recipes that I hope to try soon!  She called hers “Healthy Lamington Bites” and as cool as that sounds, I don’t know what the heck that is! Until the day I travel to Australia and have a lamington bite for myself, I’ll call them Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies. 🙂

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select protein in this recipe. Get 30% off all products using code PBCHOCO.

  • 1/3 c sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

  4. Remove dough from the freezer and cut into 9 evenly sized squares. Dip each square into the chocolate using a fork and let the excess chocolate drip off before placing the chocolate covered square into the desiccated coconut, rolling it around until it's completely covered. Once all the squares are coated in chocolate and covered in coconut, place them in the freezer for 20 minutes for chocolate to set before serving.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a cool place.

Notes

For paleo sub coconut flour for the oats.

Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

Perhaps I’ve made it my mission in life to make as many versions of healthy edible cookie dough as possible because not only do I have an entire eBook dedicated to cookie dough recipes but this might also be my fourth or fifth one I’ve posted on my blog.

 

Safe to say that I LOVE cookie dough.


 

 

This recipe takes just a couple of minutes to throw together and you are ready to start inserting a spoon.

 

 

This cookie dough freezer well too! Unlike healthy cookie dough made using coconut oil, this dough tastes even better when it’s rolled into balls and frozen for a bite sized snack right out of the freezer!
