Peach Crisp Protein Blondies


Ingredients

Blondie
½ cup coconut flour
1/3 cup granulated stevia
3 egg whites
¼ cup no fat plain greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. coconut butter
½ cup no sugar added canned peaches (in juice, not syrup)

Peach Topping
¼ cup no sugar added canned peaches (in juice, not syrup), chopped
¼ cup oats
1 Tbsp. juice from the canned peaches

Nicolette's Notes
* You may substitute greek yogurt with sour cream or regular full fat yogurt.

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an small baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.

*Note: I used a 4 x 6 inch baking dish.

2.  Place egg whites, greek yogurt, and coconut butter in a blender. Blend until completely smooth then add in the ½ cup peaches. Turn blender on about 5 seconds to chop the peaches. You still want some peach chunks so don’t mix too much.

3.  Pour the wet mixture into a mixing bowl then add the remainder of the blondie ingredients. Mix together until batter is thick and smooth. Spoon batter into baking dish.

4. Combine all peach topping ingredients together and evenly spoon on top of blondie batter.  Place baking pan in the oven and bake for 42-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes. Slice into 8 squares.

Monster Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar Almond Cookies


My Gosh! These are amazing! I am not sure I will ever bake a cookie on a sheet pan. The ramekins were PERFECT because the cookies baked evenly and turned out crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Making these again, for sure! Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar, cut into small chunks
2 egg whites
¼ cup all natural almond butter 
1/3 cup oat flour
¼ cup almond meal flour
2 Tbsp. granulated stevia
¼ tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips, optional

Method

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 4 small ramekins with cooking spray and set aside.

2. Place egg whites and almond butter in a mixing bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add in the remainder of the ingredients and stir until well combined. Place cookie dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour before baking.

3. Take about ¼ cup (or ¼ of the total amount) of the cookie batter and spoon into one of the ramekins. Repeat this process until all 4 ramekins are filled. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 14-16 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.

Makes 4 servings
1 serving is 1 cookie
