FOR PUMPKIN! I am lagging behind all of the other bloggers about posting a pumpkin based recipe. One of my faults is not being able to make a decision on what I am going to create and what I think everyone will enjoy most! I have been thinking about it for the last couple of weeks and finally decided last night what I was going to make. Once I make a decision I need to execute it ASAP or I forget. So last nights creation was….
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Protein Cookies (say that 5 times fast)
2 cups oat flour (can use any flour)
1 cup 100% pumpkin puree (only ingredient is pumpkin)
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup peanut/almond butter
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp Holy Crap cereal (you can substitute chia or hemp)
2 tbsp cacao nibs
4 packets of Stevia
8 drops liquid stevia
*I was going to use honey (1/4 cup) instead of stevia, but I forgot to buy some! You could also you maple syrup (1/4 cup). You can add more if you want a sweeter cookie.
PREHEAT TO 350 DEGREES
1. Combine all wet ingredients into a large bowl and combine well.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and combine well.
3. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Recipe will yield 12 large cookies.
4. Cook for approximately 15 minutes. I don’t pay attention to time as much as I do texture, so if you like a more dry texture, you can cook for longer.
I have decided to take 5 days off of training to let my body have some time to heal and rest. Since we train often and intense, I want to continue to see results and not injuries!
This past month has brought many exciting things into my life, including going outside my box once again and starting my own online supplement store http://thefitlife.vitahub.com/ through www.vitahub.com. It offers a large variety of products including protein, vitamins and so many other things to contribute to health and wellness. Shipping is free for any purchases over $99 and extremely fast. I haven’t had to wait more than 2 days for my products to arrive! Make sure to check it out!
