Cookie Dough Bites!

I always need a sweet treat in my life that makes me feel less guilty! I found this one and I had to share it. The original recipe calls for honey, but I prefer sugar free or lite maple syrup to save on calories.

You can add unsweetened coconut flakes, almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds! The nice thing about this recipe is that it is so changeable! Play around with it! If you find a delicious one, comment below! I love to try new versions!

Cookie Dough Bites

  • 1/2 cup all natural creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
  • 2 packets vanilla Shakeology (I have tried other protein powders but this is the best!)
  • 1/4 cup 65-75% dark chocolate mini chips or cacao chips/nibs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix together with a rubber spatula and let sit in the fridge for 5-10 minutes so the balls roll easier. Roll into quarter size balls and keep in refrigerator. Makes about 24 balls. And try not to eat them all in one day ; )

Eggs…Eggs….Eggs…

In meal prepping this week, we made a few great standards to have available in the fridge! The kids eat them (both the teens and the toddler!) and they fit on our meal plans! I’m going to share two of our favorites with you!

 

 

Deviled Eggs (I CRAVE these!)

IMG_6004

Ingredients

  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup plain hummus
  • 1 tbsp grain mustard
  • 1/8 cup chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sprinkle of smoked paprika

20 half eggs=53 calories each! #WIN

Hard-boil the eggs. Peel them. Cut them in half and set the halves aside. Remove the yolks. Blend everything (including the yolks) in a food processor. Cut the corner off a zip-lock bag and use that to pipe the filling into the half eggs.

Egg Muffins

Ingredients (per egg muffin)

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 slice Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 slice turkey bacon
  • 1/8 cup peppers and onions (sauteed)
  • 1/4 cup egg whites

150 calories per muffin

We chose to leave the eggs whole so the yolk was in the middle of the muffin. Saute’ the peppers and onions first, then put the turkey bacon on the bottom of the muffin tin. Pour the egg, egg whites and peppers and onions into the tins and place the cheese over the top to cook. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. These worked great for snacks, breakfast and on the go, since you can eat them warm or cold!
