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

Fruit salsa is one of my favorite summer snacks. The tangy and sweet combo is such a refreshing treat! I made this for my mom for Mother’s Day and she loved it. Here is the recipe so you can surprise YOUR mom with a tasty and (kind of) healthy dessert.

Ingredients for cinnamon chips:

  • 10 flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients for salsa:

  • 2 apples
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup chopped kiwi
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • ½ pound raspberries
  • 4 tablespoons raspberry preserves

For the cinnamon chips, spray each tortilla with cooking spray on both sides, then sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over both sides. Cut the tortillas into slices with a pizza cutter, then place them on a baking sheet for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. For the fruit salsa, first, finely chop the apple and add the lemon juice to it. Mix. Finely chop the strawberries and kiwi, then the raspberries. Add all ingredients to the apples and combine. Then add in the raspberry preserves and mix. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes, then serve!

The cinnamon chips give this recipe a delicious sugary addition! It is a time-consuming process to make this salsa and the chips to eat it with, but it is so worth it in the end.

XOXO, Chels

I recently had a crazy craving for blueberry muffins. I really didn’t want to go to my kitchen and slave over a hot oven to make a batch, so I opted to make a smoothie inspired by my craving! This smoothie is sweet, thick, and tastes just like a blueberry muffin. Yes please!

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 – 6oz vanilla Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ frozen banana
  • ¼ cup raw oats
  • ¼ tsp. lemon zest
  • ½ cup ice cubes

Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until very smooth (or about 2 minutes). Then enjoy! This is way easier than making actual muffins. Plus, it is so much healthier!

We all get the munchies, when we just need something sweet to sink our teeth into! I have been trying my best to eat healthy, as I am sure a lot of us are. Lucky for us I found a delish recipe for healthy cookies that you can feel good about eating! And with only 3 ingredients they are so easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • Handfull of rasins (or chocolate chips)

Mash 2 ripe bananas in a bowl. Then mix in the oats and rasins or chocolate chips. Line a baking sheet with foil and place small balls of the batter on the sheet. Bake the cookies for 15 minute or so at 350 degrees.  These are so easy to make and you probably have these ingredients on hand!

If you want you can add a little bit of cinnamon or vanilla to sweeten them up before you bake them go for it! These are easy and fun to modify.

Enjoy!

Greek yogurt is being used in everything these days, from ice cream to face masks to pancakes. Now I am taking it a step further and showing you a delicious recipe for Greek yogurt banana muffins! There is nothing better than a warm muffin and a cup of cold milk in the morning. These muffins are made without flour or oil, and the oats in them give them their shape. They have a dash of chocolate in them to suppress your sweet tooth, and they are super duper moist! I cannot wait to whip up a batch myself.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggsBanana-Oat-Greek-Yogurt-Muffins4
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 400F and spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray or coat it with coconut oil. In a blender, add all of your ingredients but the chocolate chips and blend them on high until the batter is smooth. Stir in the chocolate by hand and then pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling each hole until it is about 75% full. Sprinkle your chocolate chips over the muffins and then bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow them to cool for about 10 minutes before you remove them from the pan.

 

These muffins are crazy good and good for you! They are healthy enough for breakfast and tasty enough to get your day started off right.

XOXO, Chels
