Healthy S W E E T S


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
and well....
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!!!
 
Ingredients: 1 can chickpeas drained/rinsed, 2 scoops vanilla whey + 3/4 tbsp. golden batter cake mix ( or 2 scoops cake batter protein), 1/3 cup PB, 1/3 cup honey, 1egg, 2 egg whites, 2 tsp. vanilla or coconut extract, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut + coconut/sprinkles for topping. Mix all ingredients together in food processor/blender, spray 8x8 baking pan or line. Spread evenly in pan, top with coconut/ sprinkles, bake 20min @ 350. :)

I am HOOKED!

And my picky husband is too!!!

Try these out and let me know what y'all think.
