High Protein

Low Carb Zucchini Bread

Why can I never spell zucchini? I ALWAYS spell it zuchinni. ALWAYS! Uh! Thank goodness for autocorrect or I'd be looking real silly and then all the blog haters would come out like "OMG I don't trust a word she says. Did you see she can't even spell zucchini?" HAHAHA! 

Okay, this is not a new recipe that I made up. I told yall I'd let yall know however this is one that I think that everyone should know. There are certain foods that are volume foods that are good to have up your sleeve. As a marathon runner, I typically focus on foods that aren't quite as volumuous as this because then I would not be able to get in enough calories, however when you are cutting and trying to lose weight, you want to have foods that are going to keep you full and satisfied...foods that make you think that they are super carbalicious but in fact, they are not. This is where zucchini bread comes in! 

I can't even explain how easy this is so here goes. 

I'm actually glad that I made this one day in advance and then I could make sure that it could be stored. It can, but the water from zucchini makes it very very moist (and it starts to be more zucchini and less bread #nomsayin) so I know that a lot of girls will half this recipe and eat it right out of the oven as a single serving. You can still make it in a loaf, but just will be less. If you do put some to the side, put it in the fridge. 

The macros are fantastic!! :) The label below is for one slice with the entire loaf making up 8 slices. It's just basically protein powder macros because zucchini is just water essentially. haha! I took a bite but I get full so fast and this week I'm trying to push as much calories as possible so I didn't want to fill up on this but all that to say that it's filling! :)

Hope you enjoy!!!

Protein Chocolate Chip Cookie

So, I just want to go ahead and give the disclaimer as I begin making more recipes that I really want recipes to be out of my own head. There are going to be some duplications just because there are classic recipes that I want people to know that are good macro friendly desserts, zuchinni breads, mug cakes, etc but the last thing that I want to do is copy recipes. That would be silly. :) 

I hope that you'll appreciate that, but also I will let you know if I think that something should be added or changed, as I'm not going to be honest about my opinions of my own recipes. As I continue to do this more, I'll of course maybe re-make something and have that add on. If it sucks, I won't share it. HA! But, I also think it's okay to share some things that are delicious but may not look like the most perfectly crafted food platter or might taste a little off, but looks awesome on the table! haha! I THINK YOU GET MY POINT! 

I'm also not sure about this ingredient then you click on directions to see them. What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? I'd love feedback! 

Today's recipe is a chocolate chip protein cookie!! Let's begin!! 

The one change that I would make is to add 1-2 tablespoons of margarine if you do it. I should have done that, and it wouldn't be as dry! Also, the ice cream is not optional. hehe! But it really did make it so good, as this is a definite low macro, tastes like low macro treat! :) Half the recipe to turn it into a big nighttime snack for one as it's super easy! For some substitutions, you could do regular sugar or none at all. I use coconut flour because that's what I had on hand, but it also gives it a great flavor but any flour that you have would be totally fine in this!

This is for 1/8 of the entire skillet! :) ENJOY!!

Protein Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Well if this is not the most winner recipe I’ve ever put together, I don’t know what is …

For a while now, I have had a crumb cake in the back of my mind to make because Tanner has been obsessed with them this year! He loves loves them, so I thought I would try to recreate a healthier version …. I have to admit…. EPIC.

Okay, I’m done salivating over having another one and onto this beaut…

This is a SEVEN ingredient one! This one is WORTH YOUR TIME SPENT! I promise!!!! Make it now!

Let us begin:

This is where the magic happened…it’s not glamorous but this is what you need

Ingredients (for the cake): 

Coconut Flour (mine is from Whole Foods and I love this brand)

1/2 teaspoon Baking powder

1 tablespoon Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 tablespoon coconut flour

Eggs (actually only one egg white)

1/2 scoop Protein powder (isolate protein is used in the recipe-readjust macros based on protein powder used)

2 tablespoons canned pumpkin

one stevia packet

Directions: 

Pour all contents into a mug one at a time.

Stir vigurously!

It will then look like this :

Then just microwave for one minute and set out to cool!

While this is cooking for one minute and cooling, you can whip up the topping! It’s so simple and is only a few….

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce

cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to preference

Directions:

Mix and pour on top

The topping actually makes enough for like 8 cakes approximately (I made that up so when I entered the macros for the crumb portion, I selected my serving size as 1/8! Close enough, right?

Honestly, this is probably my favorite recipe to date however, I’m obsessed with pumpkin and we all know that!

The macros are FANTASTIC!!! Check it out! Remember, divide those crumb macros by 8 or forget the crumbs if you don’t wanna waste time because it’s fantastic without! :)
