Peanut Butter Pumpkin Waffles

Okay, so I FINALLY am posting this recipe that has been neglected because I was being clawed at and eaten alive by everyone on the planet but izOK because I love y’all and I would probably be salivating on my phone too.

Recipe:

  • 1/3 cup (40 g) oat flour
  • 2 T. (16 g) coconut flour
  • 3 T. powdered peanut butter*
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of cinnamon and vanilla extracts
  • stevia to taste

This is so simple! Combine dry ingredients and slowly add and stir in the wet. I add a little milk or water if the batter is too thick. Pour in the middle of a sprayed waffle iron and W-A-L-L-A! You have about 2 yummy waffles that you can top with whatever you want ❤

As always, let me know if you try them and if you think they bueno o no bueno. 😉

*Try subbing 1-2 T peanut butter and it will come out finger-licking good.

Banana Peanut Butter Mugcake

mug

See that melty chocolate ^^^ 😀

I’m back at it with my lil yummy recipes as I haven’t really had the time or energy to whip up a new one since I like my classics. But this one sure hit home and I’m forever glad it’s in my existence. So ooey-gooey  ❤

Recipe:

  • 1/3 cup (40 g) oat flour
  • 1 Tbsp (16 g) coconut flour
  • 1/2 scoop (28g) peanut butter protein powder- I used Slap Nutrition
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 2 egg whites
  • about 1/4 cup almond/cashew milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Stevia to taste *optional*

Mash banana in bowl with a fork until there are not clumps, then add in the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir well. Add wet into the dry and mix until little to no clumps. (Make sure you are using a large bowl as it expands)

Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds and allow to cool a minute so you don’t burn your mouth off. Of course you gotta add toppings or you ain’t playing the game right. I crumbled a dark chocolate peanut butter cup on mine and slept like a baby 🙂

Blueberry Coconut OOIAJ

Looks like my overnight oats game is still strong.

ooiajLAYERS

Now, I have a good ole favorite overnight oats recipe that I have been using for a while, but sometimes I like to test the waters with new ones, just to see how it turns out. Good thing I did because this baby was satisfying, sweet, and a refreshing way to start my day!

Recipe:

  • 1/2 cup (40g) oats
  • 3 Tbsp (50g) egg whites
  • 1/2 cup almond/cashew milk
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed*
  • 5 oz greek yogurt
  • cinnamon and stevia to taste
  • drop of coconut extract

*optional but recommended

Microwave oats and milk for about a minute. Then add egg whites and microwave another 30-40 seconds. You may need to add a little more liquid to loosen it up. Now throw in the flaxseed, greek yogurt, cinnamon and stevia and stir until well blended.

Store in the fridge overnight in a sealed container. In the morning, add blueberries and toasted cinnamon coconut chips (oh my gosh tastes like cinnamon toast crunch… or something just so addicting you know you’ll eat it by the handfuls)

Enjoy!

Banana Walnut Bread

It has been quite a long time since I did some baking in the kitchen 😦 When I saw that we had almost a bunch of already spotted bananas I knew it was time to make some good ole fashion nana bread. I don’t like having nats in the house either… I found an old family recipe and made some changes to it. Let’s just say it came out fantastic and made the house smell AMAZING!

bananabread

Recipe:

  • 2 large spotty bananas; mashed
  • 1 3/4 cups flour (I used a mix of whole wheat and oat flour)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup agave syrup or honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4-1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • lots of dashes of cinnamon… because cinnamon… ❤
  • about 1/3-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (depending on how nutty you want it) plus more for topping

First, make sure you preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9X5 inch loaf pan really well (don’t forget! It would ruin everything!)

Combine the melted coconut oil and agave/honey in a large bowl. Preferably use a whisk to mix it all together so it looks like an interesting thick mixture.

Add the eggs and mix until all combined. Now add in the mashed banana and milk and whisk.

Now add the vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and stir well.

Sift in the flour and keeping mixing until no clumps. After that, fold in the walnuts.

Pour into the greased loaf pan and top with more nuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional). Bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Make sure you allow it to cool completely before cutting. I find it best to store it in the fridge up to 5 days. After that, beware of mold because the moisture finds it. But who are we kidding, this may not even last a day 😉

You’ll go bananas 🙂

 

 

 

Brownie Pancakes 

Sometimes, I like to start my day off with a big stack of pancakes all to myself. I also like to have something sweet about 90% of the time.  A breakfast containing a good balance of carbs(sugars), proteins, and fats is an excellent way to give your body energy to use throughout the day.

So don’t be afraid to treat yourself in the morning or any time of day! Your body uses it regardless ☺️

Here’s the magic:

  • 2 T oat flour
  • 2 T coconut flour
  • 1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Stevia to taste
  • 1/3 c egg whites
  • 1/3 c milk of choice

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Then mix in the egg whites and milk. Mix together until everything is fully combined and there are no chunks. Prepare 5-6 medium size pancakes on a sprayed nonstick griddle. I layered mine with banana, a Beechie’s Bakehouse brownie, and topped with more brownie and peanut butter sauce.

 So fluffy….

This is a surprisingly nutritious stack of pancakes! No added sugar and 50g protein to start your day off strong💪🏼

Oh, and people wonder how I finish all my food…. All I can say is you underestimate me.

Overnight Oats In a Nut Butter Jar🍯

  I’ve had some people ask me how I make my overnight oats in a jar! Well it’s actually pretty simple and not much different than how I make my warm oats.

How To

  • 2/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice

Combine oats and milk together and microwave for 1:30 mins. Take out and stir. 

Then add:

  • 1/4 cup egg whites

Stir that in and microwave another minute until it looks fluffy. Watch for overflow. 

I like to add lots of cinnamon and some vanilla extract for the flavor!

Put this in a sealed container in the fridge overnight. In the morning, scoop oats and whatever else you want (fruit, yogurt, etc.) in an almost empty(not really😉) jar of nut butter! I prefer not refrigerating the peanut butter so it won’t get hard but that is totally up to you. There is something so magical about the bottom of the jar of 90% nut butter and 10% oat ratio👌I think I eat way more nut butter when the jar is half way full because I just cannot wait to make this. It’s probably one of my favorite breakfasts ❤️ No shame. 

Banana Bread🍌

 

 When you have overly ripe bananas, don’t throw them away! I hate wasting food because that equals wasting money. You could make some amazing banana bread because it will: 
1) make the house smell delicious

2) it will make your tummy happy

3) treat yoself 😉

This bread is also full of healthy fats from the coconut oil. Studies show that in moderation, coconut oil can help boost energy, fight off infections from the lauric acid, and lower risk of heart disease.

Recipe:

Wet:

  • 2 very ripe mashed bananas
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Dry:

  • 1.5 scoops Lean Body For Her Chocolate Whey 
  • 1 cup oat flour 
  • 3 T baking stevia 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking power 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Mash bananas, then add the wet ingredients and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients then add to the wet mixture.
  4. Pour batter into a well sprayed loaf pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle. Makes 9 slices! 

 This was a hit with my family and I hope you try it with yours! It is so moist and perfectly sweetened.

You can also use vanilla or cinnamon  protein powder and I’m sure it will taste great 🙂

Lasts about 3-4 days in the fridge.

Snickerdoodle Zoats!

 I have had a couple requests for my snickerdoodle oatmeal and of course I don’t mind sharing! It’s probably one of my favorite oatmeal recipes because it’s easy, delicious, has some veggies, protein packed, and did I say DELICIOUS?! You don’t even taste the zucchini! But it sure adds some volume as well as the egg whites for fluffier oatmeal 👌 In the picture above I topped it with one of my banana chocolate chip muffins (you can find on my site as well) and Buff Bake snickerdoodle almond butter. I like my carbs…❤️

How to:

🔹2/3 cup oats

🔹1/2 cup cashew/almond milk
🔹1/2 cup water 
Microwave for 1 min 30 seconds and stir. 
Then add:
🔹3 T egg whites and cinnamon 
Stir, then microwave another minute.
Once fluffy, add about 1/2 cup shredded zucchini and 1/2 scoop Pescience Snickerdoodle whey protein and stir until fully combined. You don’t HAVE to add the zucchini because the egg whites add plenty of volume 😋

You can eat this right away but I especially love cold oats so I put it in a sealed container in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the morning 😊
  
Overnight snickerdoodle zoats with fresh berries and a dollop of Justin’s vanilla almond butter because I know of no other perfect breakfast😋

Crêpes

pesd

I have always been curious about crêpes. Never knew what they were like… We have never been the family that goes out to breakfast so a crêpe was so foreign to me! 
 
Crêpes are a French pancake usually filled with cream, fruit, chocolate, etc. 
 
<—- These are filled with yogurt and fruit drizzled with Justin’s vanilla almond butter.
The recipe for them are pretty simple actually! All you need is the ingredients below and a little patience:
  • 1/3 cup flour of choice (oat, whole wheat, or white)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 T egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 T unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • sweetener if desired

 Pour thin layer over small sprayed pan. Cover and let cool about a minute. If it doesn’t look cooked all the way on top, flip. I rolled these up with Red Velvet Elli quark and topped with banana, chocolate protein glaze and chocolate chips!

**If you want chocolate flavored crêpes, just add 1 T cocoa powder**
 
These take as much time to make as pancakes and will definitely be worth the effort👍

Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

 These pancakes are adapted from my “Patriotic Pancakes” that you can find under pancakes☺️ 

Ingredients:
💜1 scoop vanilla protein powder
💜1/3 cup Kodiak Powercakes mix
💜2 T oats
💜Dash of cinnamon 
Mix dry ingredients then add:
💜1/3 cup egg whites
💜1/3 cup milk of choice
💜1-2 T greek yogurt
Mix all together until there are no clumps or dry pieces. Prepare on a well sprayed griddle and WALLA! I prefer these pancakes cooled so it’s more cakey.
 
Elli quark is amazing!!! It’s a German Style sweet cream with just as much or more protein as greek yogurt. It’s naturally sweetened with stevia and erythritol. I find mine at Whole Foods and they have many flavors to choose from😊 
 
Great topper for my pancakes with blueberries and coconut💜
