Good morning all! Tomorrow we leave for my amazing cottage so I wanted to bake a healthy breakfast ahead of time…and what’s better than the combination of cinnamon, chocolate and peanuts? Uh..Nothing! So what I did was take my original cinnamon swirl protein bars made with the amazing Trutein cinnabun protein powder, and just topped them with 30g (2 tbsp) of mini chocolate chips, baked them in a 9×9 inch pan and cut them into 9 huge squares…I may have also added a couple extra peanuts in the bars ;)….

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!

Hey, I’ve got something delicious to share with you guys to help you reach that protein intake! These little cute bites have 4.5g of protein each and only 43 calories each! This means that the entire recipe is only 215cals and a whopping 22.5g of protein! These are 100% clean with no bad ingredients so you can feel good about eating them. They are also perfect if you are craving a little something sweet. Here’s how you make them! Take me to the recipe!
So like I said I would, I tested out my awesome new Cinnabun Trutein Protein Powder. It worked really well in my overnight proats . I found it’s very similar to the vanilla trutein though, not that that’s a bad thing!
Later that same day I didn’t have much of an actual lunch since I ended up going to a gym for the first time in my life! I found that I actually still prefer working out at home. I think I just feel like everyone is staring at me at the gym haha. But I do have to admit they have some pretty awesome high-tech treadmills that make mine at home look like a dinosaur.
After my workout I had a protein bar & later had a hard boiled egg with lots of hummus and veggies. I also made…BANANA BREAD! I have been dying to make this ever since I saw we had 3 super ripe bananas. Perfect! This banana bread is so healthy and delicious! I substituted mini choco. chips for the walnuts in the original recipe and left out the water and just added 1/2 tsp baking soda + a little less than 1 tsp baking powder. I also used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. I can’t believe this stuff is healthy! But nope no artificial sweetener or sugars added, only honey :).
mmmm… you know you want a piece…
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 eaten this breakfast for the last week and it keeps me full & tastes awesome. It has everything including, high protein, healthy carbs & fats(although you can leave them out if you want) all in 1 giant bowl! No more skimpy bowls of cereal and skim milk, this is what you should be eating! Hope you all like it. Take me to the recipe!
