I love a treat, but I l0ve a homemade treat that I know whats actually in it and was made in my own home!  I love a healthy treat thats packed with protein, and no refined sugars!

I’ve made countless recipes with PBFIT and I love it because you get the peanut butter taste without all the fat AND it has more protein per serving.  I love making treats with PBFIT.  If this isn’t a staple in your home, what are you doing with your life?

WHAT YOU NEED

-1/2 cup Peanut Butter (I like simple truth or fresh grind from smiths)

DIRECTIONS

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Place peanut butter, coconut oil and honey in a small bowl.  Melt in microwave for about 30 seconds, OR over stove top and heat up until coconut oil is melted. 
  • Mix up oats, protein powder, super seed mix, PBFit in a bowl.
  • Add peanut butter coconut oil mix to the dry mix and mix together.  It will be a little dry, but feel free to add a little water or honey to it.  The consistency of it is more flakey, but It’s meant to be pressed down into bars, so it will mold into bars once pressed down.
  • Once mixed through press the mixture onto the pan pressing firmly down to ensure that it doesn’t break apart. If you have to do 1/2 pan so it’s thicker you can do that too.  I like them about 1/2 inch thick.  
  • Then add your chocolate chips evenly all over and press them into the mixture.  I like to do this rather than adding them in, so they’re evenly placed all over.
  • Place in the freezer for an hour and leave them in there 30 minutes before eating.  Take them out let them unthaw a bit before cutting.  As you can see, they aren’t perfect little squares, it’s more like bark looking. 

TIPS: Store them in your fridge for up to 1 week.  Don’t leave them out, otherwise they will be flakey.  You can also leave them in the freezer, which I do because I like them to stay harder.  But if you like them a little more soft then leave them in the freezer.

If you like these, you will my also love the Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Balls I created with Better Body Foods and PBFit products!

Like I’ve said before, Better Body Foods is my number one go to for all things baking and cooking.  All real ingredients, nothing hidden, you know what you’re getting!  I strive to keep all the ingredients real at my house for my family.

MEAL PREP ASIAN GROUND TURKEY

IMG_3475

IMG_3475

This dish is possibly the EASIEST thing to meal prep.  I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.  I used to think meal prepping was pointless since I worked from home, but just meal prepping this lunch has been a GAME CHANGER and I want to share it with you.  The no dishes at lunch time just cuts my time in half do either play with the kids or get some work done.   I doubled this batch for both my husband and I.  Enough for 4 days.

(MAKES 4-5 SERVINGS)

so double this if you want to make for your partner or kids too. Its delicious turkey.  Oaks loves it.

FOR MEAT

 

FOR SAUCE

-1/4 cup Honey 

-1/2 tbsp Sesame oil

-3 tbsp Liquid Aminos

 

SIDES & TOPPINGS 

-1 cup Dry Quinoa

-1/2 cup chopped green onions

-2 cups steamed broccoli 

Cholula Sauce & everything but the bagel seasoning  

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook quinoa according to package. I use the Aroma Pot.  Add 1 cup dry mix then 2 cups water and hit the quinoa button and it’ll beep when done.  If you don’t have one you can use a saucepan and cook over the stove the same way.  Just cover it.  I also steam my broccoli on the tray on top, if you don’t have it then the other option is to boil your broccoli, or you can sautee it with a little oil and cook for about 20  minutes over stove top.
  • Heat up olive oil over pan over medium heat.  Then add garlic and sautee for about 2 minutes.  Then add your ground turkey and cook until done.  About 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile add honey, sesame oil and aminos to a small bowl.  Once ground turkey is cooked through, add in the sauce mixture and let simmer for a couple minutes.
  • Remove from heat and place in container.
  • Chop up your green onions.
  • Get a 1/2 cup out and scoop up 1/2 cup ground turkey mixture and place in the MEAL PREP CONTAINER.  These are reusable and I highly recommend them.  If not, I love these glass containers and you can just add all the ground turkey in them.
  • Scoop 1/2 cup of quinoa in meal prep container. 
  • Add green onions to top of turkey.
  • Place enough to fill the cup with your broccoli.

Then when you go to heat it up, add in the bagel seasoning and cholulua sauce over the quinoa and broccoli.  I also like to scoop the quinoa over into the ground turkey when I go to eat it.

HOT TIP: plan on using 2 pans for each serving.  If you double it of course.  It took me about 2 hours total to do all of this.  One mess and done!  So nice to have your meals ready for the week.  It sets you up for a good healthy week.  I feel like it gives me momentum to make healthier choices too.
