Quest Nutrition Mocha Chocolate Chip

I like the macros off the bat as the last few newer quest bars were coming in at 9g or more. Visually it’s the very common quest base tan, as flavored mocha with chocolate #chunkporn throughout the bar. Slight mocha, coffee aroma to the bar but very hard to smell imo. Typical for quest I heated one half of the bar and left the other room temp. The room temp bar had good chew but I felt the mocha flavor really lacked until the very end of the bite. It also was just a tad bit grainy as well. Heated up bar made for a better texture but still was a bit grainy or pasty. You get just a hint of mocha or coffee overall. When taken with a chunk of chocolate it can almost give a burnt coffee flavor. The more you ate the bar the more the flavor built in your mouth, you got a bit more flavor after eating the Bar. Was nice to see a coffee flavor come to market but I think it needs a bit of work. Decent to munch on but I wouldn’t buy a whole box, and would choose other flavors to this.

Overall – 6/10

Savory Pancake Pizza

I decided to get a bit creative for breakfast today. I mean, who doesn’t want to start their day, let alone their week off with some pizza. I know I don’t mind one bit. I have never really done any kind of savory pancakes before so this is definitely a work in progress but I love the direction!

Lets get started!

First, Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Then grab a bowl and add dry mix into bowl. I used 2 svgs of protein pancake flapjacked mix. Use ‘flexiblebaker’ to save 10%

Add water to your mix.


Next add in your favorite spices. For this pizza I chose garlic, chili powder, onion powder, thyme, and Italian seasoning blend. Mix well.


Then grab a non stick skillet and spray with non stick spray. Heat on medium heat. Once hot, add your all of your pancake mix into the skillet.


Once your pancake starts cooking start to add your toppings. I chose red/yellow peppers, spinach, cheese, pepperoni, jalapeños, and fresh shallots(once done cooking). Once your pancake has developed that golden brown crust on the bottom were you would be ready to flip it, place in your over at 350 degrees for 5-10 until the pancake cooks through.


Take out of oven and slide onto a plate.


I decided to add my sauce on at the end to give it that “breakfast, I just pour syrup on my pancake” feel. I also was worried the sauce would make the pancake to soggy and not cook. I could be wrong.

Delicious to say the least.

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

IMG_20160425_210312828.jpgI know that chocolate and peanut butter is the age old flavor match up, but let’s not be so quick to leave out banana as a flavor combo with chocolate. I had a couple bananas that didn’t quite make it into my daily oat ball and decided they were going to start turning black on me.

They thought they were being clever but little did they know I had something planned for them! Now, I am not a huge fan of Greek yogurt but I cannot deny that it is amazing to bake with. It makes your product so damn moist, and helps add a nice protein punch. With the right combination of flavors you can have yourself a protein packed delicious baked good!



Now, when I think of muffins I instantly go to a Banana Nut Muffin. Now I decided to leave the nuts off this time to save some fat, even though I could of put less chips in 😀 and to be honest I am not a huge nut in my food fan. None the less I still love that flavor as a muffin for some odd reason. Anyway today I decided to whip up some Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, Lets get started!

Tools for the job:

  • Food Processor
  • Spoon
  • Bowl
  • Scale
  • Rubber Spatula

Boston Creme Cake


What I have for you today is my little take on Boston Crème Donut, made into a cake!

Very moist vanilla cake , stuffed with a vanilla yogurt, and topped with a thick chocolate pudding frosting.

Lets get started!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In one bowl place:

  • 10g Brown Sugar ( I used splenda’s)
  • 1.5 scoops Vanilla Protein(I used Eat the Bear. Use chron30 to save 30% on your purchase at http://www.etbfit.com
  • 14g coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 20g All purpose white flour

Mix till combined.

Next, in a separate bowl place:

  • 60g Fat free sour cream
  • 62g Unsweetened applesauce
  • 69g Liquid Egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 10g 0 cal Waldens Farm Pancake Syrup (Not needed)

Mix till combined.

Next, mix dry ingredients with wet till well incorporated.

Place in a sprayed baking dish, roughly 6in wide. Baking tin doesn’t matter really as it will cook in anything, just watch your baking times.

Bake for roughly 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Place on cooling rack. After 5-7 minutes, take cake out of dish and place back on cooling rack to finish cooling.

Next grab 2 more bowls.

In one place: (frosting)

  • 1/2 scoop of Chocolate Protein (I used Cellucor Casien)
  • 5g Coco Powder
  • 2g Truvia baking sweetener(any granulated sugar)
  • 10g Waldens Farm chocolate sauce(not needed)
  • Enough water/milk/almond milk to make into frosting consistency

In the other place:(filling)

2g Truvia baking sweetener(any granulated sugar)

1/2 scoop Vanilla Protein( I used etb vanilla)

1 tsp Vanilla

110g 0% Greek Yogurt

4g Vanilla SF FF pudding mix

10g Waldens Farm pancake syrup (optional)

Mix together until combined.

Once Cake has cooled, grab a knife and either cut it in half, or into 3 layers.

Begin spreading your filling mix onto the layers of your cake. Once spread, stack your layers on eachother re building your cake.


Proceed then to spread your frosting on the top of the cake. Depending on how big you made your cake you can either frost just the tops, for a donut feel or spread it along the sides as well.

There you have it! That is my rendition of Boston Crème. I know my ‘vanilla custard’ needs work to actually make it seem like your eating custard but it is a work in progress!

Macros for the entire cake are : 680 cals / 8 fat / 66.7 carbs / 80.6 protein

Anchor Nutrition Blueberry Bar


@anchornutri blueberry protein bar – 3f/24c/20p and 7 fiber. Something a bit different today. This bar focuses on trying to alleviate nausea, morning sickness, sea sickness, etc with protein, ginger, and specific vitamins. Now I don’t suffer , I’m just saying the direction of the bar and it’s benefits. Great ingredient list using real blueberries, almond butter, sea salt, and more really gives this bar a raw and natural feel. Solid macros. Whey Crisps thru out with a nice crunch surrounded by a blueberry coating holding it together. Nice chew and rich blueberry flavor. I’m personally not a fan of ginger and I didn’t even mind it with this bar. Definitely a nice change up and a ‘simple’ bar. Give these guys a follow as I believe they are a new start up! Would love to see a PB honey, and a banana chocolate chip version of this.
