Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Warm cookies are one of my greatest weaknesses. I am trying to watch what I eat and live a healthy lifestyle (check out my YouTube channel for my fitness routine!) so I attempt to minimize the sweets I eat. It’s tough, y’all. Here is a great way to enjoy warm gooey cookies without worrying about the guilt. They’re dairy free and gluten free, but our taste buds won’t know the difference!

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking pan. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thick like cookie dough. Scoop a spoonful out and roll it into a small ball. Take a fork and do the traditional crisscross pattern on the top, flattening the cookie. Bake them for 13-15 minutes or until they are slightly golden brown. Let them cool for about 10 minutes, then devour!

XOXO, Chels

The weather where I live is pretty unpredictable. One day it will be a gorgeous warm day, and the next it is freezing and rainy. And when the weather is cold, there is nothing better than a nice hot snack to warm your tummy right up. If you are looking for an easy, 5 minute meal for one, then look no further! Here is mac n cheese in a mug.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup elbow noodles
  • ½ cup milk or water (milk if you want creamy noodles)
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

Add the milk/water and noodles to an oversized mug and place it on a large plate just in case you have spillage while it is in the microwave. Microwave the mug on the plate for 1 minute, then stir, and microwave another minute. Stir it again, then check your noodles. If they aren’t quite done, microwave them an additional 3o seconds. After the noodles are cooked, if you are using water, pour out the water that is left, and if you are using milk don’t pour it out. Add in the cheese and stir well. Now you are ready to dig in!

So, if you want some yummy comfort food but don’t want to make the whole box, make your own mug!

XOXO, Chels

Nutella is the best invention on the planet. It is chocolaty goodness! I found this recipe for homemade Nutella that is to die for. Read on, chocolate lovers!

Ingredients:

-1 cup hazelnuts

-12 ounces milk chocolate chips (melted in the microwave)

– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

– 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

-1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat your oven to 350. Lay the hazelnuts on a cookie sheet and toast them for about 14 minutes. You will need to take the skins off of the nuts and toasting them helps the skins come off. Place the nuts into a towel and rub them until the skins come off. Let the nuts cool.IMG_5979

2. In a food processor, blend the nuts until the consistency is smooth. Add all of the ingredients except for the melted chocolate and blend everything together.  Add the melted chocolate and blend the mixture together. It will be a little hot and runny but it will firm up once you let it cool.

 Put the Nutella into a jar to store it. This recipe makes about 2 cups. Enjoy your homemade chocolaty goodness!

XOXO, Chels
