Chocolate and Cream Cookie Dough Sandwich

Chocolate and Cream Cookie Dough Sandwich

I’m not a big fan of using prepackaged products (even if they are all natural) because obviously, I like to bake my own food. But every once in a while I find a product that I LOVE so much that I can’t stop using it and […]

Half Baked Cookie Dough Protein Bars

Half Baked Cookie Dough Protein Bars

Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what to write about my recipes. I don’t want to bore you guys with some silly story. I mean, lets be honest, the important part is the recipe and how to make it; not a bunch of jibber jabber about […]

Protein Packed Vanilla Cupcake Sugar Cookies

Protein Packed Vanilla Cupcake Sugar Cookies

IMG_8805[1]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 marco friendly is difficult.

Tonight was the night that all of the magical ingredients came together in perfect proportions and a healthy sugar cookie was born. A sugar cookie that won’t judge you if you eat half of the batch. A sugar cookie that won’t make you feel guilty for having a late night snack. A sugar cookie with all natural ingredients. A sugar cookie that fits perfectly into your macros. The perfect sugar cookie!

Recipe

  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Quest Nutrition)
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp. Egg Whites
  • 2 tbsp. 0% Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter from Nikki’s Coconut Butter (regular coconut butter will work but you may want to add sweetener)
  • 1 tbsp. Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • Coconut Sugar for sprinkling

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 325F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set a side. Mix protein, flour baking powder in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix with a fork. Roll dough into seven balls and place them on the baking sheet two inches apart. Press balls flat and bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on rack.

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 […]

I had this nice little intro I was planning on writing before this recipe but then I realized it doesn’t matter. The point of this post is that I made HEALTHY OREOS and they are sinfully delicious. They are made with all natural ingredients and they take less than 30 minutes to make. That’s all you need to know right? Oh yeah, they are gluten free!

RECIPE

  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Quest Nutrition)
  • 2 tbsp. Corn Starch
  • 2 tbsp. Coconut Sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Sugar Free Maple Syrup (or agave or honey)
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 5 tbsp. Vanilla Cupcake Coconut Butter Nikkis Coconut Butter (or coconut butter with sweetener to taste)
  • 2 tbsp. Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Quest Nutrition)

IMG_8572[1]

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl mix flours, cocoa powder, corn starch, coconut sugar and baking soda together. Add maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix with a fork. Add egg and continue mixing until everything is combined. Separate cookie dough into 16 small balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Wet your finger so it doesn’t stick and press the balls flat. Bake for 4-5 minutes at 350 F. While cookies are cooling, mix coconut butter and vanilla protein powder together to make the filling. Once the cookies have cooled, spread the filling onto 8 cookies and sandwich it with another cookie. Enjoy with a nice cup of almond milk!

Guilt Free All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge

Guilt Free All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge

I recently discovered Nikki’s Coconut Butter–and I am obsessed! I love it so much I actually contemplated changing my blog name to “Coconut Butter Plus Chocolate” I mean, that’s how amazing this stuff is! Much like peanut butter you can spread it on anything. You can cook with […]

Sinfully Healthy Pancakes Under 300 Calories!

Sinfully Healthy Pancakes Under 300 Calories!

IMG_8394[1]Try to keep it together, guys! I know, these pancakes look ridiculously delicious. I’m sure you are wondering how in the heck can these possibly be good for you, right? Well, it’s simple. This stack is made using all natural ingredients from a pre-packaged pancake mix! I never use packaged or boxed food that says things like “just add water” but this one was different. It was “just add almond milk and egg whites.”

I used Abs Chocolate Chip Protein Pancake and Waffle Mix and followed the directions: one scoop abs mix, 3/4 cup almond milk, 3/4 cup egg whites. Mix ingredients together and cook on medium heat. I also added 1 tbsp. ground flax seed for extra fiber.

The pancakes themselves are just about 200 calories but then I add all of that peanut butter and chocolate they ended up just under 300! How though? Are you ready for all of your peanut butter prayers to be answered? Powdered Peanut Butter. I named a blog after peanut butter so it’s probably pretty obvious that I have an addiction to it. And as you probably already know, peanut but is very high in fat. Yes, it’s the healthy fat but too much of anything is never a good thing. When I discovered PB2, my life changed. PB2 Bell Plantation was the first brand I tried and I loved it. There’s many powdered peanut butter brands on the market and honestly, I think they all taste very similar but the point is that you are getting 85% less calories and fat in comparison to regular peanut butter. PB2 you can get at target for around 5 bucks. Other brands you can get online for cheaper. I even heard you can get a big family size of PB Fit at Sam’s Club for 10 bucks. I always pick some up when I do a vitacost.com order.


My method: mix 2 tbsp. of powdered peanut butter with 1-2 tbsp. of water (depending on the consistency I am going for) and then add stevia and cinnamon to taste (sometimes if I’m feeling sassy I might add some chocolate protein powder to the mix). The chocolate drizzle in this photo is actually coconut butter. I used Dark Chocolate Fudge Coconut Butter by Nikki’s Coconut Butter.

Recipe

Drizzle

Directions
Mix all recipe ingredients together. Prepare a pan with non-stick coconut oil spray and use a small cookie scoop to make 6 small pancakes cooked on medium heat until golden brown. Layer with peanut butter mixture and drizzle with coconut butter. Enjoy!
