@lunabar white chocolate Macadamia – 7f/25c/9p
High expectations as this is one of my favorite flavor combos.
Very strong but pleasant smell of vanilla with a hint of cinnamon. Texture just like a rice crispy, with a good chew. Coating of white chocolate on the bottom, and a drizzle on top. Don’t get to much Macadamia nut unfortunately, I would say maybe make the pieces a bit bigger. A few bites did have good combo of flavor tho. Overall macros are not that great but it was enjoyable to eat. I will definitely be eating more of these to try their flavors

7.8/10 would get higher if macros were better.

@lunabar smores review.
6f/27c/9p
Overall weak macros. Designed for women I would assume it to be lower in calories. Anyway, decent smell when opening. Chocolate meets Graham cracker. Rice crispy top coated in chocolate. Good chew when your eating this, and the chocolate coating on the bottom is nice. No real marshmallow found when eating this bar. Maybe they counting it as whats holding the rice crispy together? If this woulda had little chunks of marshmallow this woulda reminded me of those granola smores bars I ate when I was younger.
7/10 decent taste, but not smores.

@youfreshnaturals muscle frosting review
Cookies & cream – 13f/8c/10p – first Smell is a bit of CnC, decent macros for a spread. Unfortunately I’m not a huge fan. Very grainy texture, and it doesn’t have a ton of actually flavor IMO. Hint of cookies n creme then it kinda fades away by the time you swallow it. You definitely get to the cashew flavor quick. Definitely wouldn’t be a Sammy spread or something like that. Would be more of a spoon eating spread. Needs more ‘cnc’ flavor definitely.
5/10
Cookie dough – 14f/7c/10p – get mainly just a chocolate smell. Also very grainy texture. Chocolate on top is pretty cool but it’s kind of a thick layer with not a ton of sweetness. More of a coco flavor. More of a spoon spread. The chocolate could be used to spread I suppose. The cookie dough by itself is also slightly unsweetened as well, and it’s needing more flavor.
5.5/10

FluffButter

Up for today’s #nutbutter review: @dsnaturals

Vanilla Maple 15f/7c/11p – very good smell of Maple, great texture as its very smooth. Would be great for a drizzle of some sorts. I get more vanilla than I do maple. I make my own maple syrup so I got a taste for it, so definitely try to increase that. Pleasant aftertaste as well. Good consistency for being kept in the fridge. Doesn’t get hard as a rock

8/10
Brownie batter – 15f/7c/11p – good chocolate brownie smell, again good smooth consistency even after being in the fridge. Easy to spread. You can taste the almond a lot on this one with a backdrop of chocolate. Would definitely try to increase the chocolate.
8/10

Both also get good marks for vegan friendly, gluten. Dairy, soy, lactose, etc etc free.
These are both solid buys, and I would recommendūüĎć

@lennyandlarrys snickerdoodle cookie. 8f/54c/16p
Good cinnamon/nutmeg aroma, dense, chewy but just a tad bit to moist in the middle. Hits all your markers if you have gluten problems, vegan, no eggs, no dairy, HFCS, etc. Felt as tho it was slightly under cooked almost like raw cookie?. I don’t think I’d mind as much with the pb or the chocolate but with this flavor I would expect a slight crispier cookie. Great initial flavor but I feel it gets lost with the undercooked inside. Did enjoy this cookie only being 8g of fat, but I feel 50+ carbs is still kinda high. I suppose this passes as a snickerdoodle cookie, but not sure if this will make it into the usual mix. Warming the cookie up did make it much better! Helped to bring out the flavor !

8/10

Cinnamon Oreo stuffed Cinnabuns

IMG_20160326_113444

Looking for a fun easy way to spice up your cinnamon buns? Look no further I have you covered! I definitely plan to play around with these combinations of ingredients for some fun flavor outcomes!

Simply take a package of Reduced Fat Cinnamon Rolls (doesn’t have to be low fat) and place them on a non stick surface. One by one, gently stretch them out. I found it was easiest just using my fingers and stretching it out like pizza dough. I’m sure a rolling pin would work just fine!

Once stretched out place 1 oreo and 2 white chocolate morsals in the center. I broke my oreo in half and stacked it.

Proceed to fold and seal dough so the filling is well sealed. I rolled some into balls and some into mini long john looking shapes.

Place in a sprayed pan and bake for 10-12 min at 350 degrees.

Take out and drizzle with the icing!

That is it! I hope you enjoy as these were absolutely amazing!

Reeses Stuffed Biscuit Skillet

IMG_20160325_215842

What we have here today is a very simple and easy dessert you can whip up for a party or family get together.

Simply get a package of low fat Pillsbury biscuits(doesn’t have to be low fat). Place them on your counter and cut into half, then half again.

Then simply place 1 reese oreo and 1 chocolate chip in the middle of the biscuit and fold over then roll into a ball making sure all sides are sealed.

Place all rolled balls into an over proof container, I chose to use a cast iron skillet.

Bake per the directions on the biscuit container.

In the meantime well it is baking I simple took 1 scoop protein powder with 2 oz of cream cheese and 1 tsp of vanilla as my ‘glaze’ that I popped place on the top once popped out of the oven.

Crushed a few oreos over the top for some final touches.

Macros per ball came to be , 2f/10c/2p

Flavors are absolutely endless with this! Get creative!
