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!!

Healthy Pumpkin Dip

Oh, how easy this recipe is and how short this blog will be and how much you are going to love this! There was someone on our retreat this weekend that had made this dip (but of course I knew it wasn't the healthy version) and my mind went A-HA! That's how I do most of my healthy recipes to be honest with you. I want everyone to know that I do create my own recipes as I would never like steal someone else's idea. I try to not look at healthy food blogs for inspiration because I never want to accidentally copy someone so normally I'm always thinking of ideas of things I could do to change non-healthy to healthy for the blog! :) Let's just get right to it because I'm so dang excited! 

INGREDIENTS: 

  • One container of fat free Cool whip 
  • One can of pumpkin puree
  • One box of sugar free vanilla pudding mix 

DIRECTIONS: 

  • THROW IT ALL TOGETHER IN A BOWL AND STIR! 

Tip #1: It's the actual powder mix of the pudding. You don't make the pudding. I added like a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to give it more of a spice flavor. 

Tip #2: After this sits in the fridge, it gets more flavor. The spice and pumpkin flavor comes out more, so if it's faint and light, it will get stronger.

MACROS: (This was a hard one to calculate)

One tablespoon should be around 2.6g C 0g F 0g P 

THINGS IT'S GREAT WITH: 

  • Clearly in mini pumpkin pie containers 

The macros on these are 4.5g F 13g C 0g P so they aren't the best for their size, but this is such a delicious combo!

  • Cinnamon crackers

I wish I knew the brand but I could have sworn it was from Trader Joes, however you could make your own and I know they have some cinnamon sugar sticks. The combo of light fluffy dip with cinnamon cranky stick-I.Can't.Even.

  • Apple slices

I thought I'd throw this in here because it's unexpected but a great taste combo. It's such a sweet healthy treat! :) 

As always, let me know if you make it! I'd love to see on instagram or facebook so tag me pretty please! :)

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! :)
