I woke up this morning with a new sense of determination. Went searching for my P90X DVD set. Allas, P90X grew legs and walked away. Gosh darnit!! Up pops my P90X3 DVD set, almost like it was trying to save the day! Okie Dokie then, its a sign… I’m going to do P90X3 for the next 90 days! Add in a few runs here and there when the winter weather allows and hill runs come spring, along with staying on track nutritionally and I expect to see good things by the time I need to board a flight to Vegas in 89 days!
Because I’m focusing on eating super clean, and know that I like my treats, I decided to do a little creating of my own… Enter Cookie Dough Protein Hearts.
This recipe was adapted from this recipe from Fit Foodie Finds. The recipe looked delicious as it is, but I didn’t have chocolate protein powder, just vanilla. Looks like my decision was made for me!
Hearts Full of Protein
- 1 cup vanilla protein powder (I used EAS Vanilla Whey Protein)
- 2 1/4 cup oat flour (I just ground up steel cut oats in my food processor)
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/3 cup nut or seed butter (I used Sunbutter)
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. The batter will be quite thick. If it is too dry, add a tiny bit more milk. Once combined, scoop and roll into balls, or add into a silicone mold like this one from Wilton. Cover and put in freezer until frozen, pop out, and put into freezer safe bag.
Recipe makes approximately 24 servings of 2 tablespoon portions.
