Protein Packed Vanilla Cupcake Sugar Cookies

Protein Packed Vanilla Cupcake Sugar Cookies

For as long as I have been baking healthy, recreating a good sugar cookie has been one of the hardest recipes I’ve tried to develop. I’ve had plenty of failed attempts that just end in a dry cookie. Who wants that? Getting a cookie chewy, soft, perfect and still […]

Secretly Healthy Cookies and Cream Fudge

I recently asked my Instagram followers what they wanted to see me bake more of and their responses consisted mostly of simple ‘No Bakes’ and ‘Cookies and Cream’ anything. Most of my fudge recipes use flavored coconut butter and while yes, it’s delicious; I understand that getting a […]

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Cookie Dough Bars

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Cookie Dough Bars

IMG_7779[1]I have been feeling extra sassy lately and these Cookie Dough Bars couldn’t represent my current state any better–deliciously soft chocolate chip cookie dough center, stuffed with a white chocolate (yes, white chocolate) peanut butter cups and topped with a light layer of chocolate coconut butter! Then I took it one step further and sandwiched a tablespoon of almond butter between two layers of these ridiculous monsters. You guys, this is real life and it’s just too short not to dunk everything in nut butter.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge

It’s a popular known fact that coconut oil is great for moisturizing your hair and skin, but did you know that it can aide in weight-loss? Coconut oil has a long list of holistic benefits but it can also increase your energy expenditure, helping your burn more fat–especially in your abdominal area!

As soon as I learned that I could possibly lose more belly fat by consuming more coconut, I did what any person would do; I made peanut butter fudge with the main ingredient being coconut butter!


I get all of my ingredients from this wonderful site called VitaCost.com–they have the cheapest whole food ingredients and they deliver the next day!

Recipe

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Organic Honey or Agave (vegan)
  • Handful of Cocoa Nibs (sprinkling)
  • Pinch of Sea salt (sprinkling)

Directions

Add all ingredients (except cocoa nibs and salt) to a glass bowl and place over a small pot of boiling water. Stir until combined. Remove from heat and pour evenly into 7 cupcake liners. Sprinkle with nibs and let cool in the refrigerator or freezer for 2 hours. Peel off liners and enjoy!

Skinny Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Popsicles

Skinny Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Popsicles

IMG_8259[1]I was born and raised in a small town just outside of Las Vegas, NV, so I understand the desire for frozen foods when the summers are long and hot! I don’t know about you, but my “popsicle eating days without gaining a pound” are long gone. However, the cravings remain.

I found these adorable popsicle molds at Marshals for 6 bucks and I knew right away what I had to do. I needed to create a popsicle that was beneficial after a workout because that’s usually the time of day when I’m the hottest or sweatiest or just plain want something cold to eat.

Each popsicle has only 179 calories, 15 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat and only 6 carbohydrates (and that’s including the chocolate!).


So here it is, only four ingredients and you can easily adapt this recipe for different flavor popsicles by using your favorite protein.

  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 Scoop Peanut Butter Protein Powder (I used Quest)
  • 1/4 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 4 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Fudge Coconut Butter (I used Nikki’s Coconut Butter)

Whisk together milk, protein powder and yogurt then pour into molds. The recipe should make about 4 popsicles depending the size of your molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours. Run molds under hot water for a few seconds before removing. Dip popsicles in semi melted coconut butter and returned to freezer for 5 minutes before serving. Optional: shredded coconut and chocolate chip garnish.
