@completenutrition Salted Caramel Cashew review.
.
240 cal / 9f / 28c / 20p
.
Pretty good macro split, just a bit higher than your average bar. 65g total bar so typical size as well. It’s got a tan based bar with crushed up cashews in it, then layered with a caramel base. Real food based bar with 10g of Whole Foods, good amount of fiber, coconut oil for some healthy fat source. Faint salted caramel aroma, nothing to strong. It’s got a few crisps in there but can barely tell. The bar has a great chew with it, could just use a bit more texture appeal for me. Main flavor with this bar is the salted Carmel. Don’t get a ton of cashew, so if it wasn’t on the label and I didn’t see them I might not know they were in the bar. Flavor wise it reminds me of eating a caramel chew or caramel candy. Definitely was a nice treat. Maybe increase the salted part just slightly. Overall this bar was delicious and definitely recommend giving it a try.
Overall : 8.5/10

@completenutrition Dark Chocolate Cherry Review –
.
250 cal / 10f / 33c / 20p .
.
Highlights: 10g of Whole Foods, 19g of fiber, sweetened with stevia, and 5g of sugar. Very nice aroma with a chocolate covered cherry smell tickling the nostrils. 72g bar so just a bit bigger than quest bars. Chocolate base bar with a dark chocolate under coating, crisps scattered throughout the bar, and lots of cherries visible on the top. Really good chew with this bar, and the crisps give it nice texture. Good blend of chocolate to cherry in this bar. Main flavor I get is chocolate with cherry accompanying it. I do get a bit of a dry cocoa powder aftertaste though. I think some sea salt would of made a killer edition to this bar but it’s not needed. I would increase the structure of the crisps a bit so they give off more of a crunch or last longer, but that’s personal opinion. Overall this was a really nice bar and a bit of a change up and bit different than your usual quest bar. Excited to try the other flavor I have. .
Overall – 7.8/10 , not a huge cherry fan so you might rank this even higher! Would pick this up over most quest flavors tho .
Have you guys tried these yet? What you think? Definitely a solid pick up if you haven’t yet. .

@thinkproducts chocolate almond brownie 6f/19c/10p
Very nice brownie/chocolate aroma when first open. Not a very big bar at 40g. Nice chocolate coating with a chewy chocolate filling. Slightly weak on the chocolate flavor in the bar itself. The almonds seem more like ‘crispies’ you’d fine in a combat bar or something similar but not nearly as large or pronounced. Almost non existent. Didn’t give me a brownie taste at all, more of a chocolate covered cherry almost? But really faint flavoring in general. Warming it up did make it a bit better but definitely lacking overall flavor. Definitely not something I’ll get again.

@thinkproducts salted caramel bar review: 5f/20c/10p
Pretty small bar at 40g. Macros arnt terrible with a even ratio split but I’d love to see a bit higher protein. Nice chocolate coating on the outside, with a caramel filling. Decent aroma when first opened. Good chew. Honestly this reminded me of a chocolate chip cookie dough more so than a salted caramel flavor. It does give you a nice hint of caramel right at the end though I would of liked to get a bit more of a salt taste as well. It does finish well, though maybe throw some kinda crunch in there for some texture? Well semi decent macros, and an acceptable taste ima go with
7.5/10

@powercrunch salted caramel review: 13f/9c/13p
Absolutely great caramel aroma as soon as you open it. Wafer texture. Dry/flaky crunch with a sweet creamy finish. Very very sweet on the flavor, and I think it almost overpowers at the end. One of the better uses I’ve seen for ‘salted caramel’ but I think the mark got missed slightly. Being so low carb is nice, but I feel as though there isn’t anything to the bar. It gets moisture and it shrivels in your mouth and gives you a burnt sugary taste. Now that said again, only 9 carbs is awesome. I do think 13g of fat is pretty high and only 13g of protein is a bit low. Would be a good fit if I only really needed to kill fats. If I needed other macros I’d rather put that much fat twords a @fitcrunchbars @gnclivewell oatmeal bar or @g2gbar . definitely not a bar to eat if you are hungry.

@powercrunch peanut butter crème : 12f/10c/13p .
Great peanut butter aroma, nice coating over the wafers. First off hits you with a nice Creamy peanut butter feel with a crunchy Wafter crunch that comes after. @theflexiblefoodie recommend eating these cold, which made this way better in my opinion so be sure to do that. Helps prevent it shriveling up into nothing when you eat it. Leaves you with a nice peanut butter after taste. Still not a bar that will satisfy hunger least for me, and I’d still like to see the fat a bit lower, but with that said it is a great low carb option.

@powercrunch peanut butter fudge review: 12f/10c/13p
First smell after opening package reminded me of a Reese Crispy Stick. Nice Wafter crisp n texture. I felt that this one lacked in overall flavor on both ends. I don’t really get any peanut butter flavor, and just a hint of chocolate at the end. Really isn’t much flavor in it at all. Also felt as though the bar was overall dry(yes I realize wafers should be) but every aspect was dry. If they could add the pb flavor and creamy aspect from their PB creme bar this would be much better. Good low carb option tho, but to high in fat.

Im just trying to be a beef cake

So I decided to give a go at baking with beef protein.

Let me tell you it wasn’t a bad life choice. It almost leaves the cake with a nice fudgy feeling to it. I have only tried Vanilla caramel flavor but intend to try my hand with a chocolate as well. I think it would make a nice batch of brownies, hint hint

Vanilla Caramel Cake with a Chocolate Frosting

What you will need:

50g Pumpkin

1.5 egg whites. (roughly 70g)

34g Protein

45g Self rising Flour

14g Coconut Flour

4g sweeter

6g Psylium husk (cause fiber )

1/4t Baking powder

1/8tsp baking soda

Splash of Caramel Sauce

Splash of Almond milk

Now usually I would add 4-8g of SF FF Pudding mix but I was out so I skipped it.

Mix all that together and throw in a sprayed baking dish and bake roughly 20-30 min at 350.

I have been playing with trying to get more rise in my cakes so lately I have been whisking the egg whites a bit in a separate bowl then adding them last but I don’t think it is helping.

Well cooking in a bowl mix:

15g Chocolate Protein

5g Coco Powder

1 oz FF Cream Cheese

Splash of Almond milk

Splash of Chocolate Sauce

Mix till well incorporated then put in fridge to chill

Once the toothpick test comes out clean pop that bad boy out to cool for at least 30 min.

Once cool cut in half and spread some of your frosting in the middle of the cake.

Once Frosted either add some toppings or just enjoy!

Macros for the Cake are 502 cal 2.5 fat / 70 carbs / 53 protein and a whopping 15g of fiber !

I also used almost the same identical recipe and made this amazing cake as well.

Gods drink…..but cold…?

So I usually drink my coffee one way. Black. Sometimes I will throw a bit of 0 cal flavoring in but 90% of the time I take my caffeine black, strong, and packing a punch. Well, its summer so I figured something cold was in order. Wanted to make a super macro friendly recipe so I decided I would whip up a Iced coffee or a play on a frappe or moolatte
