We were so excited to open our email and see that a representative from Labrada contacted us to create a recipe using Jamie Eason's new Lean Body For Her Protein. As you probably know by now, we LOVE Jamie! She is one of our biggest inspirations and we even had the chance to meet her in person! Okay, we'll be honest...in 2012 we basically made a detour to Vegas on one of our hiking trips JUST to see HER at the Olympia expo! And she recognized us! How cool is that?
Jamie has changed countless lives (including our own) and continues to do so with her passion for fitness and eating clean. She recently released a new protein powder and we were so excited to try it! The wonderful aroma was the first thing we noticed when we opened the bag. We have already tried it in quite a few recipes (coming to you soon) and it mixes well, bakes well, and even tastes great plain! What sets it apart and makes it so great though is that contains no gluten, artificial flavors, artificial colors, preservatives, or artificial sweeteners. It only has 3 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fat per serving while packing in 25 grams of protein! It is currently available in chocolate and vanilla and they are both delicious!
We were having a He and She Eat Clean get-together at Jim and Tiffany's house so we decided to make our fabulous cookie dough but add a peanut butter cup on top because who doesn't like that combination?!
1/2 c quick cooking oats
1/4 c natural peanut butter
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
2 squares of dark chocolate
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 c egg whites (pasteurized liquid egg whites)
1 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Peanut Butter Cup:
1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
3 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 small scoop Stevia
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1. Prepare cookie dough by adding all cookie dough ingredients to a blender or food processor
2. Press cookie dough into the bottom of muffin tin (lined with muffin liners or coated with coconut oil)
3. Prepare peanut butter cup topping by adding all ingredients to a blender
4. Pour peanut butter cup topping onto the cookie dough
5. Freeze for at least an hour...we actually loved the way they tasted the next day.
He and She Tips:
You will need to let them sit out for a few minutes before trying to remove them from the muffin tin. You could even add protein powder to the cookie dough recipe to increase the amount of protein per serving!
