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.

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 Cake Batter Protein Truffles

When it’s not your birthday but you want cake, you toss a bunch of ingredients into a bowl and hope for the best. At least that’s what I do. Just kidding, there is some method to my madness but in this case there was a lot of luck involved.

I don’t always get so lucky and have my creations turn out perfectly on the first try. These truffles are pretty darn close to perfect.

These tasty little bites will satisfy every sweet tooth!

I used Leaner Creamer to sweeten my truffles. If you can’t find Leaner Creamer you can replace this with coconut sugar or a baking stevia.

No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars

If you follow me on Instagram (@peanutbutterpluschocolate), you probably already know that I love protein bars. I would even goes as far as to say that I am a bit obsessed with them.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I went an entire day without eating a protein bar, whether it be one I’ve made myself or a store bought one. Maybe I have a problem?

If you have a protein bar habit like mine, then you already know how expensive it can get. Most good quality protein bars are close to three dollars a bar which can really put a dent in your wallet (but totally worth it). Making your own bars can save you money and a trip to GNC.

peanutbuttterproteinbar4


 

For obvious reasons I chose to make these bars peanut butter and chocolate chip flavored and used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Select protein powder (30% off code PBCHOCO) but you can use any whey protein for different flavor combinations. I’m sure Snickerdoodle or Gourmet Vanilla protein powders would also taste amazing!
