Protein Peanut Butter by Oh She Glows
This stuff is amazingly addictive. I love nut butters but this recipe reduces the fat and calories and increases the protein in one serving. And I might even say that it tastes better than plain peanut butter! I’d call that a win win.
Simple Cornmeal Waffles/Pancakes by Minimalist Baker
I took Minimalist Baker’s Blue Cornmeal Waffles and transformed them into yellow cornmeal pancakes. I also used whole wheat flour in place of a gluten free flour blend and excluded the sugar from the pancake dough. I topped my pancakes with homemade peanut butter and my Homemade Caramel Sauce.
Cinnamon Bowl Cake for One by Yeah…Imma Eat That
You’ll have to check out this recipe on Kylie’s Instagram, and while you’re there, make sure to check out her other food posts. She has an amazing ability to make all food look easy to make and super satisfying. While you’re there, check out her Healthy Cookie Dough for breakfast!
No Bake Elvis Bars by Oh She Glows
I worship the ground that Angela walks on, and I have never made something from her blog that didn’t turn out great! These bars were really quick to pull together and a great healthy dessert. I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder to the middle layer and it worked perfectly.
Carrot Cake Overnight Oats by Nutritionist in the Kitch
I didn’t have any pineapple but did use some freshly grated nutmeg which really put this breakfast over the top. I made these oats multiple weeks in a row and added some vanilla protein powder to increase the protein content.
Chopped Thai Chicken Salad by Pinch of Yum
This salad turned out really great and I love that it is such a healthy lunch or dinner option. I didn’t have any green papaya and omitted the peanuts since the sauce already has a great peanut flavor. I also put this salad it in rice paper rolls to change things up a bit!
Greek Yogurt Mousse with “Graham Cracker” Crust by Imma Eat That
I was already pretty sure of this, but Kylie solidified my belief that she is a genius with this recipe. I would have never thought to add coconut flour to greek yogurt to make a mousse consistency. I made this two days in a row and perfected my banana to cereal ratio in the crust (start out with just a little bit of banana and add more if you need it after mixing completely).
Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Banana Pancakes by Ambitious Kitchen
No joke, I think these are the best pancakes I’ve ever had. They are light and fluffy, super healthy, packed with protein, and a great vehicle for any and all toppings you can think of. This recipe now has a permanent place on my Sunday Pancake list.
White Chocolate Cookie Dough Blizzard by Fit Foodie Finds
I made Lee’s White Chocolate Protein Thumbprint Cookies into little energy balls and threw one into my morning shake. I bought the White Chocolate Designer Whey protein powder just so I could try these two recipes and it was well worth it. I don’t even love white chocolate, but this flavor was great. I have been adding cottage cheese to my pancakes recently to thicken them up and increase the protein. A great trick that highly recommend trying.
Lentil and Sweet Potato Salad by The Healthy Maven
I had all these ingredients on hand and made a huge batch of this salad to eat all week long. It was perfectly light and healthy.
Softbatch Funfetti Sugar Cookies by Averie Cooks
These are far from healthy, but I made them with my little sister when home for Christmas and they were a huge hit. Super soft and filled with sprinkles. A great sugar cookie recipe to have on hand.
