Eats and Treats

Anyone sick of my blogging yet? My husband has yet to post because he says he has nothing to talk about, blah blah blah. Maybe if we beg him, he'll post something soon. So i will continue until I get my blog up....which might take a while. Ha!

So today was a day of experiments. Two recipes that are great little snacks. First up, caramel protein macaroons. The lovely Alyson at Nourished Fit created this little recipe, and I just tweaked it a bit.

Protein Caramel Macaroon Chippers

~1/4 c Coconut Butter
~1/4 c Sun Nut Butter
~1/4 c unsweetened Shredded Coconut
~ 1 serving Protein Powder (I used Bio Chem Carmel Swirl)
~ 3 tbsp Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (start with 1, then add if needed)
Stevia to Taste
~ 1 tbsp liquid egg whites
~ cinnamon and cocoa powder

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Mix all of the above ingredients together. Drop small ball of dough onto a baking sheet and gently flatten with a fork. Bake for ~10 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with cocoa and cinnamon powder! These suckers are around 70-75 calories, 5 grams fat, and about 4 grams protein. Delish.

KInda look burned but its actually the cocoa and cinnamon melted on top.



Now for the my weird recipe. Still tasty. I call these Sprout Chips. Kinda like Kale Chips only with brussel sprout leaves. James LOVES his brussel sprouts so whenever I make them, I take off the outer outer leaves, lightly coat them with olive oil, lemon, salt, and black pepper. Then bake them at 400F for about 10 minute. They are so so good! You can also sprinkle Parmesan cheese on them for the last minute or so. So save your money and don't buy those $12 Kale Chips, just bake these up!




Last note.... I visited my friend Molly Peck today at Vanilla Orchid. Wow, what a neat kitchen she has. Lots of good eats. You've got to check out her home delivery catering company in Austin. She makes great gluten free, vegan, and raw meals as well.

Happy almost Friday!

Cheers,
LC
