Protein "Ice Cream"

My Christmas morning breakfast!
2 frozen bananas 
1-2tbsp almond milk
1 scoop protein (I used Cellucor's Cinnamon Swirl)
-Add chopped bananas and milk.
-blend then add protein. 
You don't want to add protein in the beginning cause when you turn on the blender, it'll go everywhere. 

I added a couple crumbled Paleo Gingerbread cookies, PB, and a chopped date.
You could use any protein flavor or add extracts like chocolate protein and cocoa and peppermint extract!

Paleo Gingerbread Cookies

🎅Paleo Gingerbread Cookies🎄
-1 1/2c almond flour
-1/2tsp ginger
-1/2tsp cinnamon
-1/4tsp ground cloves
-1/4tsp baking soda
-1tbsp coconut oil (melted)
-1/4c molasses 
-1tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
-1 egg
1. Whisk all the dry ingredients.

2. Whisk all the wet. I heated all but the egg. I slowly whisked in the (room temp) egg. 

3. Add the molasses mix to the dry ingredients.

4. It should be thick. If too thin add a tbsp at a time of more almond flour. 

5. Pour out onto (big piece) parchment paper. Wrap up. Place in fridge for few hours or overnight.

6. Preheat 350. Keep gingerbread on parchment and then get another big piece to cover on top. Roll out and cut. This will be sticky and messy; as you can see my cookies' shape are not really pretty. Spread them out on the sheet. 
7. Bake for 11-15mins. Depending on how soft or hard you want your cookies.

Protein Brownies

I make these once a week because they are THAT good and THAT easy and THAT healthy!
I receive new protein so I decided to make them using WfitNutrition Chocolate mocha protein. 
I change up the recipe weekly by changing the protein flavors or the extracts.

Protein Brownies:
1 can rinsed/drained black beans
2 eggs
2 1/2 scoops WfitNutrition chocolate mocha protein 
2tbsp melted coconut oil 
1/2c (or so) almond milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract (or peppermint or butter or almond or any really)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1. In a blender, add beans, eggs, almond milk, extract, coconut oil and stevia. Blend until really smooth and all the black bits are gone. 
2. Add cocoa. Blend. Need more liquid? Drizzle in some almond milk while blending.
3. Add half a scoop at a time while blender is on. Add almond milk as needed. 
4. Pour into lined 8X8 pan or a cake pan. 
5. Bake 350 for 18-20mins. I pull mine out at about 18. Allow to cool before cutting. I get 8 bars out of it.

I really want to double the recipe and use two cake pans and create a layered chocolate cake with a paleo coconut cream frosting...maybe that's to come!

Check out for some of this protein or any other supplements.

Lumps of Protein Coal

So I adapted these from Jasmine (aka @jazzythings on IG) but totally changed the outcome.
She keeps these frozen which I started to do...but then i wanted something warm at the moment. So I decided to bake em!

Then after I made them, I realized they fit perfect for this Christams season because they look like "lumps of coal." So if you want to mess with little ones, play a joke and say Santa left you these coal cookies haha

Mint Chocolate Protein "Lumps of Coal:"
-4 scoops chocolate protein powder
-1/3c flax
-1/3c 100% maple syrup
-1/3c almond butter (I used chunky)
-1/2tsp peppermint extract
-3-6tbsp almond milk
1. Mix protein and flax.
2. In separate bowl, nuke maple syrup, almond butter. Add extract and START with 3 tbsp of almond milk.
3. Add to protein mix. Stir really well. 
4. Not coming together? Add a tbsp at a time of almond milk. Stir stir stir. It will come together in a ball.
5. Preheat 325. I stuck the mix in the freezer until the oven was preheated so it would be easier to handle.
6. Roll into balls. Keep them all the same size.
7. Now the tricky part:baking time. I put them in for 3mins (yup 3!). Checked them. Then left the oven door open and watched.

The key is-once you can pick them up off the foil without them sticking, they're done! That is why you want them all the same size. So literally about a total AT THE MOST is 5mins cooking time. 

It's protein powder so it cooks weird.

I literally ate them right then and there. These are gooey and sticky! I enjoyed kinda sucking on one...weird yes but you'd understand once you put it I your mouth.
