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

MTS is easily one of my favorite protein brands on the market. I have personally tried three of their flavors(CNC, mint cnc, and Red Velvet) and have loved each flavor. They spent a good amount of time testing their products before releasing, and it shows.

It’s almost 90 degrees here in Wisconsin. For us northerners that is WAY too hot! Not used to this heat at all after we go through 6 months of freezing temps! The oven was broke for the last 2 weeks but I still wanted to get some recipes made up for the site, but with this heat maybe it was for the best not to do any baking anyway. Looking through my recipes I definitely needed to get more no bake recipes together anyway, so it was perfect timing. With only 7 ingredients, and very little heat source, these Salted Caramel Truffles would be perfect for an afternoon snack with very little heat needed!

Ingredients:

  • 28g Coconut Flour
  • 2 Caramel Cubes
  • 1 Scoop Salted Carmel or Vanilla Protein
  • 1-3 oz 0 cal pancake syrup(optional)
  • 14g Coconut Oil
  • 1oz 0cal Caramel Syrup(optional)
  • 14g Dollop Gourmet Salted Caramel Frosting

Instructions:

  1. Grab a Bowl and place in the coconut oil, microwave until melted.
  2. Next proceed to add in the remaining ingredients minus the frosting.
  3. Mix all ingredients well until a dough like substance is formed.
  4. Once dough is formed, make into 6 even sized balls. I placed these in the freezer for 15 min just to help bring everything together.
  5. Next, place your frosting in the microwave until it melts.
  6. Remove truffles from freezer and evenly coat each one with the frosting.
  7. Lastly I used some 0 cal caramel syrup and drizzled over each one. Place back into fridge to store.

@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

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 recommend👍

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.

IMG_20160502_072905113

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.

IMG_20160502_074201986

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.
