Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores Bars

Ingredients

    Cookie Layer
  • 1/2 c brown rice flour
  • 1/2 c finely ground almond flour
  • 1/4 c granulated sweetener (I used Swerve)
  • 32g vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 3 tbsp. avocado oil or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free mini chocolate chips
    Chocolate Fudge Layer
  • 1/2 c sugar-free maple syrup (I used Joseph's)
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 c coconut oil, room temperature
    Toppings
  • 1/2 c all natural mini marshmallows
  • 1 tbsp cocao nibs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and prepare a loaf pan or a small 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the flours, protein, granulated sweetener, baking soda and baking powder into a mixer and stir until combined. Add in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and then continue mixing (paddle attachment works best). Add in the egg and egg yolk and mix until a dough forms. Fold in mini chocolate chips.
  3. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Don't over bake or the bars will be more cake like. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. While the cookie layer is cooling, prepare your chocolate layer by placing the coconut oil and maple syrup into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Add cocoa powder and continue blending, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
  5. Pour the chocolate evenly over the cookie layer. Top with mini marshmallows and cocao nibs.
  6. Place the bars into the freezer for at least 30 minutes before cutting into 12 evenly sized squares and serving.

Healthy Waffle Cone S’more Biscuits

DSC_0162

Experimenting with healthy food is hands down my favorite past time; right after holding baby animals and well, actually eating the food I experiment with.

I’m fairly new at baking with yeast. I usually just slap some healthy flours together, add some protein powder, definitely some peanut butter, throw it in the oven and call it a cookie. I’m trying to expand my horizons a bit so I picked up some yeast and was set on making big, fluffy, baked protein donuts but I quickly learned that coconut flour doesn’t work with yeast as well as whole wheat pastry flour. That’s okay, because these sweet biscuits are utterly soft and delicious!

Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups

IMG_0989[1]Let’s talk cookie dough. I want to eat it at all the wrong times, like 2 o’clock in the morning when I can’t sleep. I really believe it has everything to do with being a woman because I have never met a man that would take a spoon to a tub of cookie dough for hours. Like, they prefer cookie dough actually cooked and made into cookies–who does that?

The other day I was on a mission to prove to my boyfriend that uncooked cookies a.k.a. cookie dough, can be a beautiful thing. So I went to Pinterest to find the greatest cookie dough recipe I could. I found a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie recipe by Recipe Girl and I knew it would be the one that would win my boyfriends approval. This brownie recipe is loaded with refined sugar, butter, flour, ya know, all of those things that taste so good but look so bad in a mini skirt. After watching my boyfriend devour these, I knew I needed to make myself a delicious but HEALTHY alternative thus inspired Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups.

I got used Nuts N’ More High Protein Peanut Butter in this recipe because it’s made with all natural ingredients and has less fat and more protein than regular peanut butter. The rest of the ingredients I got from VitaCost.com.

Skinny S’mores Pie

IMG_0480[1]

I’m just not over S’mores anything yet. In fact, I haven’t had enough. I think I need to go on a camping trip and really just get it out of my system. Until then I made this awesome pie to get me through my late night summer cravings.

I used PEScience Select protein powders to sweeten things up without having to add a bunch of sugar. It’s seriously the greatest replacement for most flours and sugars when you are baking light. 🙂

Low Carb S’mores Bars

IMG_9213[1]It’s mid June, which means I am more than ready to roast some S’mores over an open fire. Until I get a weekend off to go camping I’m staying on track with my nutrition and enjoying a slice of my Low Carb S’mores Bars. Have you ever tried Walden Farms? They carry a line of products that are all calorie free! Don’t ask me how they do it because I don’t have a clue, but it’s nice to use every once in a while when trying to make a healthy version of something like a marshmallow (which I still can’t figure out). So I picked up a jar of Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip at my local Albertsons for around five bucks.

I got almost all of the products I used from Vitacost.com. You can even pick up the coconut butter and the Walden Farms marshmallow dip I used in this recipe at Vitacost.com

Recipe

Graham Cracker Layer:
  • 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 whole egg
Marshmallow Layer:
Chocolate Layer:

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 300F. Using a fork, mix all graham cracker layer ingredients together starting with all dry ingredients. Mix until dough forms. Press dough flat into the bottom of a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. If you use a silicone mold then you don’t need the parchment paper. Bake for 17 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. Place the entire pan in the freezer while you mix together the marshmallow layer. Spread an even layer of marshmallow over the graham cracker. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes. Add chocolate layer and chips. Freeze for at least an hour. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting into bars and serving. Enjoy!
