Macros:

Cals: 350

Fat: 11.6

Carbs: 45.9

Protein: 23

Ingredients:

1/2 Scoops Mint Chocolate Protein(I used MuscleTech’s)

16g Coconut Flour

10g All Purpose Flour

10g Truvia(or granulated sweetner of choice)

5g Cocoa Powder

70g Greek Yogurt(I used Whole Milk Plain)

60g Unsweetened Applesauce

7g lite butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp mint extract

Walden Farms Chocolate Sauce “optional”

IMG_3411

Instructions:

Kept this very basic and extremely quick to do as I didn’t have loads of time preparing this. I made this directly for the busy health minded dessert lover.

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Prepare your baking dish. I used a 6 inch ramekin but you could use anything you have handy.
  3. In one bowl sift together your dry ingredients(cocoa, flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt). Then mix in your add ins.
  4. In another bowl add your butter and sugar and mix. Then add in all the rest of your wet ingredients( yogurt, vanilla, applesauce, milk)
  5.  Pour your wet mix into your dry bowl and combine well.
  6. Pour your batter into your baking dish and place in the middle of oven.
  7. Bake for roughly 25-30 min. Bake time will vary depending on baking dish/protein/etc
  8. Use the toothpick test to check if cooked all the way through. Once done, remove and place on a cooling rack.
  9. Once cool, pop out of the baking dish and place onto the rack to finish cooling.
  10. Once cool, decorate however you want, slice it up and share, or wrap and freeze it to enjoy later!
  11. Enjoy! ‘

Tips/Suggestions:

For added protein add in eggs, egg whites, more Greek yogurt, or even increase your protein powder/liquid ratio

To reduce the fat amount use 0% Plain Greek Yogurt, eliminate the butter and increase yogurt or applesauce slightly, leave out the Andes candies.

6 inch ramekin works really well for personal sized cakes but you could get away with breaking this up into cupcakes, a bread loaf, or any other pan you have. Just watch bake time!

Some lower calorie options for decorative toppings would be 0 calorie Chocolate Syrup from Walden Farms, low calorie ice creams like Enlightened, Halo Top, or Arctic Zero, and use lite or fat free cool whip

In preparing my pan I like to spray with a non stick cooking spray then place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom to help prevent any sticking issues.

Macros: per slice(makes 4)

Cals – 345

Fat – 7.3

Carbs – 42.5

Protein – 32.5

Ingredients:

(Crust)

83g Graham Cracker Crumbs

1 oz Pancake Syrup

14g Lite Butter

(Cake)

1.5 Scoops of Berry Cheesecake Protein(Muscletech’s protein is awesome)

120g Plain Greek Yogurt

2 large eggs

2 containers of Fat free cream cheese(room temp)

20g Truvia or other sweetener of choice

34g Sugar Free Preserves/Jelly –  I used Strawberry

25g Blueberries

30g Strawberries

Pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

IMG_3458

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Wrap your 6 in spring-fold pan in tin foil.  We will be using a water bath.

In a bowl in together crust ingredients. Add more syrup if needed to mix. Place crust in your spring form. I find crust is a personal preference, so if you want a crispy crust, pre-bake it at 350 for roughly 8-12 minutes. Let cool completely before adding cheesecake

In a mixing bowl, place in your cream cheese and beat it very well. You don’t want any lumps in your cheesecake.

Next add in your sugar, protein, jelly, and yogurt. Mix well until completely combined.

Now add in your eggs one at a time and mixing just until mixed. Scrape down the sides as you go.

Finally add in your salt and vanilla and mix well until combined.

Optional – Add in fresh berries into the mixture right before you add it into your pan.

Pour your batter into your pan, and place your cake inside a pan that can hold water. Your cake should be sitting in the middle of the oven.

For a water bath, you want to start with hot water. Get some water boiling, and once it’s boiling pour roughly 1/2 in worth of water. You want enough water in the pan so it wont all bake out during cook time.

Bake your cheesecake for 60 minutes at 275 degrees. Try not to open oven door while cooking. Once time is done, slightly crack the oven door and let it sit for at least another 30 minutes.

Once the cheesecake has reached room temp, transfer to the fridge and let sit for at least 6 hours, or overnight. You can use the freezer to help it set faster.

Cut into 4 slices, top with fat free cool whip, fresh berries, and some 0 calorie strawberry/blueberry sauce for a fantastic, protein packed dessert!

No bake Chocolate Banana Oat bars!

Sometimes you just don’t want to turn the oven on. Sometimes you don’t want to have to deal with multiple bowls, utensils, and all the other usual hustle and bustle there is with baking.  I was in that mood today so I decided I would make something no bake and use the freezer instead of the oven. 

In this recipe we are going back to all the great flavor combinations. I put banana, peanut butter, chocolate, honey, and oats all into one dense, chewy, power packed protein treat. IMG_2596

Bar Ingredients:

320g Old Fashion Oats

3 Scoops Muscletech Vanilla Whey

35g Powdered  Peanut Butter

14g Coconut Oil melted

30g Honey

350g Banana (mashed)

Pinch of sea salt (optional)

 Chocolate Layer Ingredients:

22g Chocolate Muscletech Whey 

14g Melted Coconut oil

48g Melted Chocolate Chips

35g Powdered Peant butter

30g-50g Walden Farms 0 cal Chocolate Syrup  

Instructions:

1. In a food processor place in all of your bar ingredients and blend until combined.  

2. Once blended together, pour batter into a 8×8 or 9×9 pan that has been sprayed and lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly. 

3. In a separate bowl combine all of your chocolate topping ingredients and mix. To melt chocolate chips the quick way, just put your oil in a small bowl with them and microwave in short bursts till melted. Some new microwaved even have melt options! 

4. Pour Chocolate topping over the oat layer spreading evenly. 

5. Place in freezer for at least 2 hours, but I waited a good 6 before cracking into mine! 

6. Cut into 9 squares and enjoy! I like them cold right out of the freezer! They are fantastic with some peanut butter spread over them!

@phorosnutrition Protein pancake review.
.
1/2 cup svg – 220cal / 3f / 18c / 30p/ 2 fiber
.
.
First off, went to make 2 svgs as it directs a cup of water, but that was to much liquid so I had to add in another half svg to thicken it up. Good looking pancakes after cooked for the most part, but not extremely fluffy, and they cook fast. Definitely not a pancake I would eat plain, but with a good syrup it doesn’t taste bad. It’s a bit dry of a cake, that could be either from the oat Flour, or whey concentrate, and the cake itself could use a bit more base flavor. Macros for the cakes themselves are pretty solid, and similar to brands like @flapjacked , but these are slightly lower carb and higher protein. Yield for a batch is also pretty similar to competitors as well. 2-4 cakes per svg depending on size. Ingredient list is fairly short as only 6 things listed, so you know everything going in which is a plus. Worth mentioning that this blend is 0 sugar! .
.
Overall I gotta go with a 6/10. Macros are good, but taste needs improvement.
