Sometimes I have a major sweet tooth, and once I get started I cannot stop! This is one problem I do have and I just try to avoid sweets all together if I can. I preach amount moderation which is what I strive for, but it is not always easy. If I can make a “healthier” treat I try to, and hope that I am satisfied after 🙂
On Saturday after work I knew I wanted a “treat” but I knew I needed some protein so I whipped up some protein pudding and topped it with a tbsp of dark chocolate chips!
- 1 scoop vanilla UMP
- 1 tbsp chocolate PB2
- 2 egg whites
- Pinch salt
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp almond flour
- 1 stevia packet
- ½ tsp vanilla
- Splash almond milk
Optional topping: 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl- whisk well to incorporate the eggs with the dry ingredients.
- Spray a small ramekin with non stick cooking spray
- Pour batter into ramekin
- Microwave for 60-90 seconds- checking at 30 second intervals
It definitely hit the spot!
I thought it would be more muffin like, but when I stirred in the chocolate chips it was very creamy, so I am calling this one a pudding 🙂
Saturday night we went out to dinner and bowling for a friend’s birthday! Happy Birthday Micah!
He doesn’t look to happy here…It’s probably because our waiter wasn’t that great…but he got a shot of tequila, a Mexican donut dessert, and a shot glass to take home. I was pretty much in a food coma all night.
Then came Sunday.
I did lot’s of food prep, which I will be posting soon, but one thing I did make that I want to share right now because it is amazing is my No Bake Protein Cookies!
No Bake Protein Cookies
- 3 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used UMP)
- 2.5 tbsp chunky peanut butter
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbsp flaxseed
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate!
- This recipe made 6 cookies.
- It’s that easy. Enjoy!
I hope everyone had a good weekend.
Are you a protein freak?
