Double Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Protein Muffins

 I made Double Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Protein Muffins using Jamie Eason Chocolate Lean Body For Her Whey Protein Isolate Powder. When adding pumpkin purée to recipes in a large amount, it makes them suuuuper moist. I’m torn- I love it but don’t, at the same time. Try these out, and tell me what you think! These are based off/inspired by a few of @kimhoeltje‘s cookie recipes. Check her out! Paired these babies with some Pumpkin Spice Doughnut Holes.

High Protein Chocolate PB “Ice Cream”

Ice cream makers are awesome. But I hate how a layer of it sticks to the machine. However, a friend on Instagram told me that it happens when there isn’t enough/any fat in the recipe! So this was a trial, but still good, nonetheless.

IMG_4414

Ingredients:

  • 227g (1 cup) plain nonfat greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 15g Chocolate Peanut Butter True Nutrition protein powder
  • Stevia drops

I mixed all of the ingredients then chilled them for about an hour – when using an ice cream maker, you want to use cold ingredients. Then I let them sit in my ice cream maker until finished! I have a 1.5qt Hamilton Beach Ice Cream Maker. It’s so cheap!

Onion & Chive Tuna Salad

Starbucks is my absolute favorite study location. Although I always buy a drink. #StarbucksOwnsMySoul. Today I brought some snacks with me. I brought two Onion Kim’s Magic Pop Magic Pop cakes with me and brought a mix of low sodium tuna + sambal oelek + 2 onion & chive laughing cow wedges. The two together were a match made in HEAVEN. The magic pop cake was so light and airy but had a nice crunch to it! The onion taste was perfect- not too strong that it turns you off. They have it just right.

IMG_4133

Ingredients:

  • 1 Starkist Low Sodium Tuna package
  • 2 Light Garlic Herb & Cheese Laughing Cow Cheese wedges
  • A dash of Sambal Oelek (gooooogle)

That’s it. I just mashed the laughing cow wedges then mixed them and the samba with the tuna. I put them on Kim’s Magic Pop onion Magic Pop. Super simple. Super quick. Super low cal, low fat, low carb, and high protein!

Easy Peasy Protein “Ice Cream”

I make protein ice cream a lot, and people often ask how I make it. I can’t take full credit of it because I’ve seen the recipe floating around. However, here are the modifications that I have made, and it’s the BEST EVER.

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop of protein of choice (Cellucor works the best because it’s THICK)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4-1/2tsp xanthan gum
  • 8-10 ice cubes

Allllll you have to do is blend all of that up. Then BAM, you’re done! It should be THICK. My blender is about dead because I make this so often.

Whipped Vanilla Protein PornCakes

Sometimes your protein pancakes turn out so perfect that you have to share two shots. #SorryBoutIt…#NotReally ;). I whipped (lol pun-y) up a new recipe today, and it turned out way more successful than I thought it would!

IMG_3367 IMG_3368

Ingredients:

  • 20g oat flour
  • 25g whipped vanilla Cellucor protein powder
  • 70g (1/2 medium) banana
  • 65g liquid egg whites
  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  • Stevia

I started off by melting my banana by microwaving it for 20 seconds. Then mix all of the ingredients together. Cook in a medium-low pan for 2-4 minutes – bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook for 2-4 minutes on the other side.
