I love sweets, but I try to distance myself as far from them as humanly possible!
and as for baking....
It hasn't happened much in the Young house. For good reason too:
1.. I HAVE ZERO SELF CONTROL
2. I don't want to weigh 500lbs.
And so the story goes on...
I started following some amazing people on Instagram.
These chics make bad, fatty, and sugary food.... not bad, not sugary, and not fatty.
I say, Halleluiah!
That being said, things have changed around here lately. I have a new found love for baking healthy delicious "sweets".
My 1st Attempt:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Brownies
Batter: 2 cups oat flour, 2 scoops chocolate whey protein, 3 tbsp PB2 powder, 1/2 cup stevia in the raw, 1tsp baking soda, 1/2c unsweetened apple sauce, 3/4c unsweetened almond milk, 4 egg whites - Mix all dry ingredients first then add in wet ingredients- mix well. - as for topping I melted 2 tbsp of PB and poured on top prior to baking. Pour in 8x8 cake pan and bake at 350 for 15 min. (Middle will not be fully cooked- removing early prevents them from drying out) Thanks to cleanitupgirl for the inspiration!
My 2nd Attempt:
Coconut Cake Batter Blondies
These are my favorite so far!!!
I am HOOKED!
