Peanut Butter Protein Bars

dollarfriendlymeals:

I introduce to you your new favorite protein bar. I’m so glad the two of you are now formally acquainted, because a long, happy future spent together will certainly be the result. With a measly five minutes of preparation, 89 cents, and 23.8 grams of protein it’s no wonder you’re already in love.

The nice thing is we don’t mind sharing, and also, these protein bars taste better than anything that your local supermarket can offer.

cup creamy peanut butter - $1.74
1 1/4 cups of vanilla whey protein powder - $4.56

Directions:

  • Heat peanut butter and milk in a medium-large stockpot, just heating until warm and thoroughly mixed together.
  • Remove from heat, and add protein powder and rolled oats.

Cauliflower crust

As some of you have been asking for the cauliflower crust recipe, I decided to write it down; I hope this helps.

1) These are the ingredients I used: cauliflower, eggs, carrots and parsley. Of course you can skip the carrots or the parsley or even add other things.
2) Shred the cauliflower, watch out for your fingers, it might hurt a little.
3) Shred your carrots and add them.
4) Cut the parsley to tiny pieces, add eggs, salt and pepper.
5) Mix everything well!
6) Get your pan and heat up some oil – I used olive oil.
7) Fill the mixture inside of the pan, disperse it a little and put the top back on the pan.
8) Wait about 8 minutes. As long as your cauliflower crust roasts, you can make a nice cup of tea and cut all other ingre
dients that you want to put on top of your crust, be creative, everything is possible and absolutely delicious!

9) Flip your crust -  It might be difficult and about to break – try to use a plate to flip it. Once you’ve managed this, let it roast on the other side for some more minutes.
10) Now decorate it with anything you want and enjoy this healthy heaven!

Blueberry-Oat Quick Bread

Makes one loaf

1 cup blueberries, washed and dried
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking or steel-cut)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease one loaf pan.

Toss the berries with 1/4 cup of the flour. This will help keep them from sinking in the batter.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and stir gently until you see no more dry flour. Fold the blueberries into the batter.

Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, rotating the pan partway through. The loaf is done when the top is puffed and dry, and when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
from Kitchen Confidante

Ingredients:

2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup creamy vanilla yogurt
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt

Directions:

Combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Adjust sweetness if necessary with more sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, lower heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and chill until completely cool.

Take 1/2 of the sauce and stir together with the vanilla yogurt and Greek yogurt. Pour into the pre-frozen bowl of your ice cream maker and churn for about 30 minutes, or until it has achieved a thick, frozen yogurt consistency. Enjoy immediately or store in a tightly sealed container in the freezer. Serve with remaining strawberry sauce.
