Just Monkey-in’ AroundHoney + peanut butter + banana chips
–I opened it and was confused by the smell. There was something weird and strong.┬á I closed my eyes and could smell the bananas in there. Something smelled…different. I couldn’t put my finger on it. I’m guessing it’s the honey flavoring and peanut butter flavoring. The flavor was a match made in heaven. I swear. I could taste both of the flavors equally, and the banana chips added a gorgeous touch! The first time I had this one, I baked it. The banana chips didn’t soften completely and still had a little bite to them. Such a nice surprise!
DOUBLE the Gainsdouble fudge brownie + banana bread
–I could smell the chocolate in there, but what really had my eyes wide poem was the PURE, fresh out of the oven banana bread smell. It was like a dream. I just mixed in stevia drops and liquid egg whites so that I could taste the pure flavor (with sweetener because I didn’t get it sweetened. I prefer to add my own). I could taste the banana bread PURE and STRONG, which I loved. But, sadly, the double fudge brownie kind of got lost somewhere.
She Want That CakeCakeCakewhite cake + vanilla frosting
–it smells like PURE cake. Right when I tore open the bag. As if I has just baked a white cake and was about to take a bite. It literally tastes like that white cake that you had on your birthday as a child (I hope you did, otherwise this is awkward). I had a nostalgic moment as I took that first bite.
Sweet Sticky Bunzsweet icing + cinnamon roll + pecans
–opened and got a large whack in huge face whiff of cinnamon roll. I’m talking Cinnabun whiff. Like…those ones that I used to get when I was little. With the pecans. Cause I could smell those babies in there too! The smell literally had me salivating, and I could picture. That ooey-gooey pecan cinnamon roll with that icing just dripping down the side of it–UGH! Okay okay okay. Onto the flavor. I had it just mixed with liquid stevia drops (because I got it unflavored) and egg whites. I’m telling you. The pecans brought it allll together. The flavor was spot on with a Cinnabun — well, a little less powerful. But I’m telling you- the flavor was THERE. And mixed with oats? Ok. GET THIS ONE.
I’m Hunting Booties PB Leanwhite chocolate + carrot cake
–when I smelled the freshly opened bag, I immediately said (out loud), “ooh. OOOOOOH.” Not kidding. I couldn’t stop smelling it. I even stopped typing this to repeat that. I could smell the strong white chocolate AND the carrot cake. Holy moly, I’m in for a treat. It tasted like I had melted a white chocolate bar on top of some carrot cake, although I wish the carrot cake flavor was a bit stronger. With crushed peanuts in the cake. All in all, it was a nice pairing!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Baked Proats

Serious question: Why have I not baked oats in a while? End serious question. Taking a rest day today. And I tried that new hazelnut extract (from iHerb: KNN401 gets you $5-10 off your order), and yeah. It’s really good. Promise. I made Cinnamon Hazelnut Baked Proats and topped it off with a Banana “Frosting” and a drizzle of Creamy Crazy Richards Peanut Butter. Surrounded by apricots.
