Alrightyyyy soo, just wanted to share a dessert that is something you can make when you really want to indulge but still feel good about it…I'm not going to lie and say it's low calorie but I can tell you one thing..IT'S WORTH IT. So save some room in your macros or just throw your macros out the window all together for one night just to enjoy this warm chocolatey, rich, peanutbuttery little bowl of amazingness….
P.S Did I mention this is almost 100% paleo?
Serves 1 (or 2 if you can resist eating the entire thing)
1/4 cup almond flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp PB2
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 tbsp Truvia sweetener plus more to taste (could sub another granulated sweetener)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 ripe mashed banana
2 tbsp egg whites
1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp white chocolate PB & Co peanut butter (or just regular peanut butter)(this is optional but highly recommended!!)
0.25 ounce almonds (about 5 almonds chopped)
1 tbsp PB2 mixed w/ 2 drops vanilla extract, dash of sweetener & enough water to become “pourable”
Directions: Spray a medium microwavable bowl/ramekin with pam or olive oil spray and combine all dry ingredients then add in wet ingredients and stir until batter is smooth(add your sweetener last so you can see how much is necessary!). Heat your White chocolate or regular peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds then swirl it into your batter. Place in the microwave for about 1min and 30 sec. or longer if needed (although you don't want to overbake this! You actually just want the top cooked but the bottom a little undercooked so it's extra goey and delicious!). Once finished, top with your PB2, dig in and devour! Enjoy!!
Nutrition Facts: LIMITLESS.
Okay..okay..just kidding, for those who just haveee to know..
Hey everyone! Today I modified a favourite brownie recipe of mine to make a healthy version, the perfect portion size for one. The result? This brownie is the most rich, decadent, mouthwatering healthy dessert I think I've made to date. It may be because I have a deep passion for the perfect brownie or just the fact that this dessert is pure chocolate heaven. Whatever reason, you should immediately pick up the ingredients and make this asap so you can agree with me! No guilt, no working out to “burn off your dessert”. Just eat, savour and enjoy.
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp +1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp egg whites
1 tsp melted coconut oil (could sub olive oil or melted butter) *Could sub extra banana but the result will be less fudgey*
Scant 2 tbsp mashed banana(or 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp splenda (or more for a sweeter brownie, just add slowly to taste)
1 tsp mini chocolate chips(5g) (I used the enjoy life brand, 1 tsp is more than you think if you do not have a scale to measure 5g)
Preheat an oven to 350*. Spray a small ramekin with olive oil. In a separate small bowl, stir together all dry ingredients then add in wet ingredients and stir with a fork until combined *(add splenda last to taste). Stir in half of the mini chocolate chips then sprinkle the rest on top. Pour the batter into the ramekin using a spatula to scrape the bowl clean. Place in the centre of the oven for 15-17min. Do not overbake! Feel free to under bake for a more fudgey brownie. (Use a tooth pick to check if the brownie is done). Now remove from oven and grab a fork, dig in and enjoy your little masterpiece!
Hey all! I thought it was about time I posted a new recipe! I can't even remember the last time I shared one with you guys! But this recipe was worth the wait..This easily just became my new favourite go-to snack. This is absolutely delicious and is wayyy better for you then any regular ice cream! It can actually be eaten as a meal replacement (highly recommend it for breakfast!). It's perfect for the warm weather coming up. It even looks like spring haha :). So now to the details I know you all want to know.. This little treat packs a good 284 calories, 5g fibre, only 3g fat, 21g yes 21g protein!(no protein powder!), & 41g carbs. You are also getting lots of healthy vitamins & nutrients from the fruit! So now how does that crazy high protein number come in when there is no protein powder you may ask? WELL, I guess you will just have to read more to find out….. Take me to the recipe!
Omg, omg, omg I cannot believe how good this cake tasted. Like honestly it tastes way better than the picture above. It doesn't even begin to do it justice. When I tasted this new recipe I was like okay..did someone trick me and replace all of the ingredients with a pile of butter, sugar and white flour? What's going on here? That's how delicious this quick cake for one is. It's also topped with virtually sugar-free caramel sauce(it tastes delicious,no joke) and pecans. Seriously if you love chocolate cake just go out right now and get all of the ingredients for this. You will be amazed. And guess what? This cake contains 15.5g protein! For the whole cake plus caramel and pecans it's a mere 234 calories. This cake is so healthy you can eat it for breakfast or dessert everyday and never feel guilty! You have no excuse to deprive yourself of chocolate or cake anymore! Alright, now that I have finished being extremely enthusiastic I will finally give you the sacred recipe to this decadent chocolate cake… Take me to the recipe!
I literally ran to my computer after coming up with this recipe. I can't believe how delicious this was! I felt like I was indulging in some super high-fat dessert. If you are trying to eat healthy and can't stand that frustrating smell of delicious cinnabuns being made every time you walk by at the mall..then have no fear this little guy is here to save you. It is honestly so good I can't even begin to describe. I was amazed that my random throw together of ingredients created something so beautiful. (It doesn't happen often). Anyways this mini cinnabun is an amazing dessert for any night or a snack when you are craving something sweet. It contains an outstanding 16g protein, 164 calories(with icing included!). I have no clue how this works but I don't care. Just try it. That's all I have to say! Continue reading “Buttery Mini Protein Cinnabun For One!”→
Okay I know the title is pretty exaggerated but these bars are completely worth it. I made these and was blown away by how good they tasted! I can't explain how amazing they are, you just need to make them and see for yourself! I felt so guilty eating these, like I am eating a chunk of delicious cake. They do not have any yucky protein after-taste! They are just pure amazing-ness & each large square has 136 cals, 5.6g fat, 17.75 carbs & 9g protein. These are so healthy you can eat them for breakfast! If you are missing your sweets, you need to make these asap. Actually, no, everyone should make these right now!
These bars sadly are not my original recipe but I give 100% credit to Katie over at Dashing Dish who created these masterpieces!
Here is the recipe link(sign up is free to view the recipe if you don't want to donate to her site!): http://dashingdish.com/recipe/7-layer-protein-bars/
My nutrition facts are a bit different because I used trutein vanilla protein powder(awesome, highly recommend for this recipe), I used peanuts, chopped instead of peanut butter chocolate chips on top & I used 2 tbsp sugar-free syrup to substitute for half the honey.
What are you doing still staring at the pictures?? Go make these immediately!
Have you hated all the recipes you have ever made with protein powder? Have they all turned out rubbery or dry and crumbly? Want a protein bar recipe that is actually 100% delicious that you won't be able to put down? One that's moist, sweet and soft? Well then look no further, this recipe is here to save the day. I originally learned this recipe by following Jamie Eason's(fitness model) version but I changed them up and made them even more delicious! I have to tell you that I am super picky about anything I make with protein powder. I have thrown out everything I have ever baking with protein powder other than 1 or two things, this being one of them. But this is the only recipe that I have continued to make again and again because I am actually sad when they are gone and I have a hard time only eating one or two! Even my brother who hates everything healthy likes these bars. So I am telling you right now…GO MAKE THESE. You will not regret it! Take me to the recipe!
I have always loved fried rice and when I decided to go Paleo, it was one of the things I knew I would miss most since my Mom makes it regularly for dinner. But as always experimenting and cauliflower have come to the rescue…This tastes so much like the real thing, I wouldn't be surprised if someone mistook it as rice.
