A very easy to make low-carb snack. Great for pre or post workout.
1 cup of canned pumpkin
5 egg whites
2 scoops of protein powder ( I used chocolate).
1\4 cup of coconut flour
A dash of stevia
1 cup of instant oatmeal
1 tablespoon of Hershey’s dark chocolate baking powder
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray
Mix all ingredients together. Add water or almond milk until desired consistency. The mix should be like pancake batter…just slightly thicker.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Makes 8 muffins. If you want 12 muffins add more water or milk for a thinner mix.
So I made a little treat for myself on Christmas Eve. Although it is okay to have cheat meals every now and then at this point in my prep, I do not want to go overboard. I have been viewing Pinterest a lot and I came across a very simple recipe for oatmeal cookies. I added my own touch with protein of course.
For this recipe you will need:
1 cup of oats
1 small package of walnuts
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
4 tablespoons of shredded unsweetened coconut
A little bit of unsweetened almond milk to help moisten
Combine all ingredients in a bowl until mixed well. Divide into 9 or more small cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. They are great for a post workout meal.
