Chocolate and Banana. A flavor combination loved by many - now add some milk, ice, and protein to it and you've got a cold, delicious bowl of healthy ice cream. The banana not only adds flavor but also creates a smooth and creamy texture. A full serving of this cold treat packs on 14.6g protein! Talk about a perfect post-workout treat!
I was given the opportunity to try a new brand of brown rice penne pasta - so I decided to add a boat load of veggies and some chicken to create this one dish meal. This recipe has your carbs, protein, and healthy fats, so what more could you need?! I was pleasantly surprised with how the pasta turned out once I cooked it then baked it. And I'll tell you something else - it was even better the next day!
Ok, you guys! There is seldom a dish that makes me speechless. The minute I had a bite of this peach and blueberry crisp, I was in my own little foodie world. The sweet peaches cooked with the tangy blueberries topped with a sweet oat crumble is perfection. I suppose being a southern girl makes me biased towards traditional southern dessert. But I really don't think many people would find this dish disappointing! I can't wait to hear what you all think about this one!
I mean who on earth doesn't get excited about warm, gooey cinnamon rolls!? Sometimes I wish I didn't love them so much. But that world doesn't exist. For a long time I've had protein cinnamon rolls on my "to-do" list. Once I sat down and typed the recipe, there wasn't a minute wasted! In the kitchen I went. Stirring, whisking, patting, rolling, sprinkling, slicing, making protein cinnamon rolls. Hallelujah! They are virtually sugar-free, high protein, and low carb. Much nicer on your figure than the store bought, or baker bought, cinnamon rolls. Also, what I hoped for - warm, gooey, and sweet!
Frosting! Sweet, smooth, finger-licking good chocolate frosting. I've had brownies before. Haven't we all? But sometimes a basic chocolate brownie doesn't cut it. You know what I mean, right? Sometimes you just need to add something....something even more chocolatey, even more sweet, just more! Frosting. I dare you to give it a try :)
I'm going to be straight with you. Oatmeal cookies have never been my favorite kind of cookie. I dunno. I expect it's from my obsession with regular, oat-free cookies. But I really, REALLY liked these little ones. I'll give you a secret, too - toasted coconut is exponentially better than un-toasted coconut. Toasting it creates a deep, caramel-like flavor, which....umm hello. Delish! I loved that flavor paired with the simplicity of the oats. Add the fact that the cookies are essentially sugar free, I'm a big fan!
