Pumpkin Cheesecake Loaf

I had some extra time this weekend and this new crisp air just has me all pumpkin and fall crazy like the rest of the world, and while Tanner continues to slave away studying for this board exam (only 20 more days-thank ya jesus), I decided to get to baking and surprise him! He said it was one of my best yet! :) I always kinda pinterest around until I find something that looks interesting that I know I can take some ingredients I already have and make a little something, so that's what happened here. 

So, I know that most food bloggers will write a book before they get to the main event, but I'm not a food blogger and I run my mouth too much as it is, so let's just get to it. ha!

MMMmmmmm smells so good too while it's baking!

Protein Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

I'm excited to share another fun recipe with you guys today, and I've realized something about these fun little protein items is that they are going to be best if you eat them within a few days. I know that a box cake can be left for like a week and still be good, but these are going to be best like the day of and the day after but typically the macros are typically really great, so why not eat it all in one sitting right? If you don't care about things being dry, then leave out the butta, but I think it helps to really kick it up a few notches. 

Let's get to it! :) 

I mean look at that! YUMYUM it was good! :) I always have these with a side of almond milk!

These macros are for 1/8 of the recipe!

I'd love to know if you guys try these recipes and I keep getting tagged in them on instagram which I love to see!! I'm going to be trying out some different plant based protein options soon and I'm excited to see how they taste in the recipes to give those that are vegetarian/vegan options and recipes as well! :)

Vanilla Protein Sprinkle Doughnuts

This shop was sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc and it's advertiser. All opinions are my own. 

Do I have a treat for you today or what? IT'S NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY SO HOW COULD YOU EXPECT ANYTHING LESS FROM ME? ;) 

I have been wanting SO badly to get more recipes out and felt I didn't have the capacity to add another thing on my to do list. Coaching is where my income comes from therefore recipe creation just took a back seat but I have finally switched some things around and made this on the top priority of the to do list. I decided that just simply had to change a few months back, and it's been so rewarding to be able to bring these to fruition! I know it's so silly, but it really does bring me joy to create recipes. 

I searched the most common things on my blog and the number one thing that was searched far above anything else was "protein powder." If you follow along with me much, you know I'm very picky on my protein powders so I don't recommend many so maybe that's why people question that so much. I found that comical to see that stat, but either way I have one for ya! ;) It did not have the gross artificial sweetener taste to me and you can get it at Walmart so that's nice as well.  (I'm not just saying this-yall know I live in little itty bitty Shelby-there aren't tons of stores here) 

I asked my mom for a doughnut form TWO YEARS AGO YALL and I opened it today. How embarrassing! HAHA!! Let's get to it! Make sure to click on "Directions" to see those! 

I told you guys when I started creating that I would let you know if these recipes were good or not, and these are genuinely very very tasty. They are a liquid consistency when mixed together but will form and rise. This recipe makes six, and the macronutrients below are based on just one doughnut. I also made a dipping sauce that is not photographed, but it was absolutely amazing and was the perfect pair. The recipe for that is just simply to mix together: 

1 scoop EAS Vanilla Protein Powder, 4 oz fat free cream cheese and 1/4 cup fat free cool whip with a sweet n low! This makes an entire bowl full though so you could definitely scale back or you can keep on hand to add to anything you desire! :)

Chocolate Protein Muffins

So, I have been really trying to cook/bake more. It's not easy to make the time, but I really want to try new things and have more recipes for you guys to try. I always have ideas running through my head but I just don't do them. 

So, with that, I present to you, chocolate protein muffins. I wanted them to be cupcakes but I am going to have to classify them as muffins based on the texture that turned out. I'm going to try this similar recipe with some different flavors to bring you guys some cupcakes. 

Am I the only one that makes a complete disaster in the kitchen? That was today! My kitchen is too small. I can't wait to have a home and a bigger kitchen to be honest but for now, I'll make a mess. Honestly these ingredients, if you are going to make healthy recipes should just be in your kitchen at all times. They are staples and normally used interchangeably in different ways and different flavors to make different protein-ish things.

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate whey of choice 

  • 5 tablespoons (or 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoons) coconut flour

  • 1 tablespoon plain greek yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon baking stevia 

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened apple sauce

  • 1 whole egg

  • 1 egg white

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Optional yet not so optional: I would add 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil which will add ~1g of fat per cupcake but I think it will taste better and moist)

Here's a tip when making cakes. You need something with fat in it or it's not going to be very moist. I tried to just use one whole egg to get that fat, but I think a little coconut oil would have done some good to add some moisture. Sometimes greek yogurt can help, but not always. 

DIRECTIONS: 

  • Preheat oven to 350 

  • Mix all ingredients (I didn't use a electronic mixer as it's a small amount and can slowly be worked all together). 

  • Spray mini cupcake baking pan 

  • Add 1 tablespoon mix to make 12 muffins 

  • Bake for 10 minutes

The protein icing is super easy and I'll be using this for different recipes in the future! 

PROTEIN CHOCOLATE ICING:

  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt 

  • 1/4 cup chocolate whey of choice 

  • 1/2 tablespoon stevia 

If you add these two together, your macros would be 32 calories // 1 g fat // 3g carb // 3g protein. They are like hilariously low calorie. Like I'm gonna go eat the entire 12 now. Haha! 

Enjoy!

With love and yummy muffins,

Jamie Eason Natural Whey Concentrate

Hey guys! I have easy, peasy, simple, delicious recipes coming to you today. Like forreal, yall know I will always give my honest opinion and yall know that most of the time, I don't really do protein powders. 

I don't think they taste very good and I always WANT to like them, but I just don't. 

Wellllllll, I finally found one that I do! YAY!! This will be so useful in so many recipes!

Lean Body for Her by Jamie Eason has no artificial sweetener in the product, and I think that's what makes it take the cake. There is no aftertaste but just pure deliciousness. Last night, Tanner was having a protein shake and I noticed it was chocolate which he normally has blueberry and I was like "BOY DON'T YOU DARE TAKE MY LEAN BODY!" So, yes, it's that good. Haha!! 

I decided to go with the newest instagram trend of the Protein brownie plus a clean chocolate smoothie! All macros are listed below! ENJOY! I know I did a jig! I should take a video of what it looks like when a healthy cook makes something unique in the kitchen and it turns out well. It's like the Spongebob dance BRING IT AROUND TOWN!! I plan on making chocolate cheesecake this weekend with this protein powder! It's going to be gone so fast. I need like 10 bags of it!!

Jamie Eason Natural Whey Concentrate Protein Brownie:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Scoops Lean Body for Her Chocolate Natural Whey Concentrate
    • You can purchase that HERE
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk (or unsweetened almond works too)
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon baking stevia 
    • Everyone likes things a different sort of sweetness so it's up to you but I put it in there and it was GREAT!
Maybe this could be called the Jamie Eason Protein Loaf with only 172 calories // 26g P // 11g C // 5g F in HALF of an entire loaf! WOAH!

Maybe this could be called the Jamie Eason Protein Loaf with only 172 calories // 26g P // 11g C // 5g F in HALF of an entire loaf! WOAH!

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray loaf pan
  • Put all ingredients into loaf pan 
  • Mix until battery consistency 
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees

This has been floating around instagram as half this recipe and just microwaving it for 30 seconds. That's definitely an option as well if it's just one person! I just wanted to make sure I had enough to share with my friend, Bridget and my husband! :) Still not enough, it's so good! haha!

This is the macros for 1/8 of the loaf which is the perfect brownie size!

Jamie Eason Natural Whey Concentrate Protein Smoothie:

Ingredients:

Directions: 

  • Put all ingredients into blender and blend
  • Optional: Top with light whipped cream (not optional for this girl but you can choose whatever you fancy)

It's going to be a very very thick consistency with this amount of xantham gum. If you would like it to be thinner, then use 1/4 teaspoon. A little xantham goes a LONG WAY!

Here are some of the ingredients used today! These are all items I love to have on hand all the time for recipes!

Hope y'all enjoy these as much as I did!!! 

With love and Jamie Eason,

Cookies & Cream Protein Cheesecake

My, oh my what I have for you today. I don't claim to have made up this recipe for protein cheesecake in general, but I just put my twist on it, and I made it, and then I consumed it. Ha! It's so easy honestly and really doesn't take any time at all so I highly encourage it. It's also incredibly sparing on the ole calories so that's helpful as well. 

If there is something that I'm going to make for myself, you can always count on two flavors: 

  • Cookies & Cream 
  • Pumpkin

I'm pretty predictable. Regardless, let's get right to it. 

Go ahead and preheat to 250 while you mix all of your ingredients! 

Ingredients:

  • 2 containers fat free cream cheese (8oz)
  • 3 containers fat free Plain Greek Yogurt  (5.3oz)
  • 3 tablespoons baking stevia 
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 scoops Cellucor Cookies & Cream Protein Powder 
  • a pinch of salt 
  • 2 egg whites 
  • 2 whole eggs 

Messy fingerssss (I'm the messiest cook, it's kinda a problem)

This is my new favorite whey! I got it on a deal on groupon and honestly I don't normally like protein powders, so this is exciting to finally find one that I like.

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees. 
  • Mix all ingredients
  • Spray Round pan with non stick spray 
  • Bake at 250 for 30 minutes
  • Continue to bake at 300 for 45 more minutes for a total of 75 minutes

The outside gets crispy and the inside cheesecake-y. I let mine cool then refridgerated for about 2 hours until I couldn't take it anymore and then had a slice! :) I topped mine with mini oreos but the possibilites of toppings are ENDLESS!!!

The macros are off the charts!! I'll be making this all the time!

Many clients of mine may have sodium restrictions due to hypertension, and this recipe may be a little high in sodium for them. Please reference this article about sodium if you are not someone who struggles with this and wondering how this applies to your life.

EDIT NOTE: This was a viral post. I have sense become a full time blogger because of posts such as this one. See my section on blogging HERE on my story to how I was able to do this.

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! :)

Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake

Today, I wanted to share one of the recipes that you can find in my ebook here.

This one is not going to be one of my simple 4 ingredient recipes however it always worth it. It is so delicious! The calories of the slice are if you cut the cake into 8 pieces in a basic round pan!

Ingredients: 

Oatmeal Crust: 
2 1/2 cups of oats
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup sugar free syrup
1/4 cup baking stevia
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Strawberry Cheesecake Filling: 
3 containers 0% fat chobani plain Greek yogurt
6 fresh strawberries
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/4 unsweetened almond milk
1 box of sugar free strawberry jello
1 box of sugar free cheesecake jello

Directions: 

Make the crust first. Combine all together and it will be sticky. Use flour on your hands to spread on a pie dish after spraying the dish well. You won’t have to use ALL of the dough unless you want a super thick crust.

Cook at 350 for about 15 minutes.
Mix the filling while this is cooking, and then add to crust and cook at 350 for another 15 minutes. Put in the fridge to become cheesecake consistency for at least 4 hours.
