I was testing out a way I could make something delicious and with chocolate, so these protein cakes are simply amazing!  You will be so surprised how good they’re and most importantly you will feel guilt free.   They are packed with protein.  

So just look at it this way, you are basically making your own clean protein bar from home.  No added sugars!

Makes 3.

1/2 cup Almond Flour

1 cup Almond Milk 

1 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder

2 drops Coconut Stevia

1 Ounce Dark Chocolate Discs

3 Cupcake Cups

Coconut oil spray or Light Olive Oil Spray

Optional: 1 Tbsp Coconut shreds

 

  • Mix all ingredients together.  If you need to add more almond milk for consistency, then you can.  Should be creamy.  
  • Spray each cup with oil, then pour mix into each cup evenly.  Place in freezer for a couple minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in microwave or stove top until creamy.  
  • Take the protein cakes out, and pour 1/2 tbsp onto each protein cake. (Optional: sprinkle coconut shreds on each cake)
  • Place the cakes back into the freezer for 10-15 mins.  

 

They should be a little hard, if you want to eat them like a bar of chocolate, then peel back the cup and enjoy! 

If you want to eat them a little softer, place in the fridge for a 3-5 minutes before eating.  Will be slightly sticky, so you can eat with a fork if you would like.  

SO good!

Victorias Secret Bra / Alo Pants 

Tubular Addidas

I legit found my favorite work out pants ever.  And when your husband tells you your ass looks hot in them, you get a second pair haha.  And trust me I have no ass…. so for my ass to look hot is hard to do haha.  I wore the black ones in this post I did on FOODS I TRY TO AVOID.

SO, I cannot live without these treats in my life.  I call them treats because they get me through my day without having RAGING cravings.  And hello, of course I still get cravings still eating them because… hormones ha.

For the most part, these help me kick those cravings out of the way!

NUMBER 1- HALO TOP. I don’t love dairy and what it does to me, but having low doses of dairy works fine for me.  I just have to watch it.  (a lot of dairy makes me break out, and icky stomach.) Anyways, halo top is my ALL TIME FAVORITE go to.  It is the mother of all mothers.  Whatever that means? haha.

I eat this right before my NIGHT TEA every night. And it saves me from binging.  It really does!  I have to have something chocolately, so I get the chocolate halo top, or cookies n creme, smores, cookie dough and strawberry are my favorites.  

NUMBER 2-  My NIGHT TEA!  Read more on that post!  

NUMBER 3-  Starbucks Iced Soy Latte.  I get this after my work out around 11am everyday, and sip on it for a good 3 hours haha.  I have to have something to sip on.  I am the weirdest.  Plus gotta get that caffiene in.  Oaks is such a busy body!  I need it.

Number 4- Protein Bars- RXBARS or ONE BARS.  Favorites from the Rxbars are COCONUT CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER. From the oh yeah bars, is MAPLE DOUGHNUT & ALMOND BLISS.  

The ONE BARS have added sugars which I try to stay away from for the most part, but sometimes you just gotta live a little ha.  I have this as my second snack of the day, which is usually around 3pm.. and I always get cravings around that time.

The timing of all of these is everything!  I am telling you.  

Starbucks coffee- 11am-12pm and make sure you enjoy and sip on it slowly, so you can have it for the next couple hours.

Protein bar- 3-4pm. 

Halo Top- 8-9pm.

Tea- 9pm.  

These treats save my life!  They help get me through the day and make me feel like I get to have a treat morning, afternoon and night.  It gives you something to look forward to too!

Let me know if you try any of these!  And I would love to hear some of the healthy little treats that help you get through your day?

Thanks for reading!
