Healthy Blueberry Baked Donuts

 

My greatest kitchen investment is hands down my Wilton donut mold pan; which really isn’t an “investment” at all because I got it for like fifteen bucks on amazon. Needless to say I have more than baked my money’s worth of donuts in that thing.

 


 

If you have never tried a Healthy Baked Low Carb Protein Donut before then you are really in for treat! These little blueberry cakes were made using whole food ingredients like brown rice flour which you can also sub for oat flour if needed. I bake a lot with brown rice flour because it’s not as expensive as other “healthy” flours–and when you bake as much as I do, those couple of dollars matter!

 

I also used PEScience Select Protein because it’s my favorite protein powder on the market and quality protein makes a huge difference when you are baking. When I first started creating recipes, I would buy the cheapest protein I could find… big mistake! Poor quality protein will leave you with a rubbery texture and an overpowering flavor. So a good quality protein powder will make a huge difference–just trust! PEScience is amazing and gives my readers 30% OFF all PEScience products using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website PEScience.com! Yay!

Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl {High Protein}

 

This is literally my second smoothie bowl ever! I know, I’m so late to the party and really I have no excuse because these bowls are amazing!


 

 

Last week I was at the mall and decided to try my very first smoothie bowl. I went simple and ordered a acai bowl complete with bananas, strawberries and granola on top. And just like that, my new breakfast obsession was born. Smoothie bowls from a trendy juice joint can get expensive so today I made my own bowl using frozen berries, almond milk, protein powder and then topped it with granola, fresh berries and chia seeds!

Healthy Double Chocolate Oat Muffins

Happy first day of 2017. My New Year’s Eve was uneventful. Daniel and I stayed in, ordered pizza and watched Netflix. We fell asleep by 9pm but were woken up by the fireworks that started at 10:30 and our poor puppies were terrified of the crackling noise. So I rang in the new year cuddling my dog while she cried in my lap. I had no idea she was scared of fire works and it makes me so sad to think of all the years I’ve left her alone on New Year’s Eve.

 

Sorry, that just took a sad turn and that’s not how I want to start 2017. No, No, No, I want to start 2017 off with chocolate and lots of it! This morning I made Healthy Double Chocolate Oat Muffins for breakfast. Yes, for breakfast. 🙂

Hello November. The news on the street is that pumpkin is out and peppermint is in. Well, forget that! I’m still not over pumpkin.

 

PUMPKIN is LIFE!

Portion control (for the ones who need it-I’m talking to myself here)!
