Quinoa Protein Breakfast Snack Bars Recipe

Quinoa Protein Breakfast Snack Bars Recipe
This is a great breakfast or snack bar that has 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber which will keep you fuller longer. It uses quinoa and chia seed instead of wheat or flour and has more protein. You may have trouble finding Quinoa Flakes at your store so you can find it Quinoa Flakes Here on Amazon.

You can substitute part of the quinoa for old-fashioned rolled oats which is a prebiotic and good for good bacteria in your gut. I did make sure mine was gluten-free and read the back label to make sure it wasn’t cross-contaminated. Of course you can leave it out. You can also substitute the blueberries for an equal amount of strawberries, or instead substitute the berries for chopped dark cherries and chopped 85% dark chocolate. Either way you can’t go wrong with these delicious combinations.

This is what the mixture looks like once it’s mixed and put into the baking dish. Those are blueberries.

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 Cup either fresh or frozen blueberries
1/3 Cup Almond Butter
2 Eggs
2 tsp Stevia Powder
1 Cup Quinoa Flakes (it will say Quinoa Flakes on the box)
1 Cup Unsweetened Grated Coconut
2/3 Cup Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (unflavored is just as good)
1/4 Cup Ground Flaxseeds (I used ground golden flaxseed)
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon (I prefer to use Ceylon Cinnamon)
1/4 Ground Cloves or Cardamom

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
1) Preheat the oven to 400° F and line an 8×8 baking dish and preferably a glass dish. You can lightly spray with a baking spray and I use an Olive Oil one.
2) Next combine the almond butter, berries, eggs and stevia. Use the back of a spoon to mash gently.
3) Then add the rest of the ingredients and mash it with a fork until it forms a crumbly and thick mixture.
4) Now press the mixture into a 8×8 glass dish or baking pan.
5) Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the top starts to brown and the edges are firm.
6) Then pull out the oven and allow to cool completely.
7) Finally cut into 8 bars and serve.

21 Day Fix Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Bars Recipe

This is a great snack to eat that won’t undo your whole day of eating clean. It’s high in protein which helps to keep you fuller longer and it is also delicious. This recipe came from the 21 Day Fix Eating Plan Book that comes with the 21 Day Fix Workout.

This recipe uses Chocolate Shakeology® which has so many health benefits. It is very tasty and doesn’t have that horrible aftertaste like so many flavored protein powders. To make it a Vegan based recipe then just use Vegan Chocolate Shakeology®.

INGREDIENTS:
4 Scoops Chocolate Shakeology
2 Cups Quick Cooking Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Chopped Raw Peanuts (you can omit)
1/2 Cup Golden Raisins
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 Cup All Natural Creamy Peanut Butter

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Just combine all the dry ingredients (except peanut butter) in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
Then add the peanut butter and almond milk and mix again.
Now press the mixture into a 8×8 glass dish or baking pan
Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Finally cut into 24 bars and serve.

I would store them in a container in the fridge. One bar is one serving.

21 Day Fix Chocolate Avocado Pudding Dessert Recipe

chocolatepudding221 Day Fix Chocolate Avocado Pudding Dessert Recipe

One of the hardest parts of trying to change your eating habits is all the delicious and unhealthy desserts you are still craving. Here is an amazing and delicious healthy and guilt free dessert that you can eat and all ingredients you can pronounce. This recipe came from the 21 Day Fix Extreme Eating Plan Book.

This recipe does use Chocolate Shakeology® which has so many health benefits plus it a delicious chocolate and no weird after taste. If you wanted to make this more of a Vegan based recipe then just use Vegan Chocolate Shakeology®. Of course you can make it without using any protein powder but I think that is what makes it thicker like a true pudding.

chocolatepudding1

Here are the ingredients you need:
1 and 1/2 scoops of Chocolate Shakeology®
1 medium ripe avocado
1 medium ripe banana
1 cup almond milk

chocolate-pudding-coconut

Now cut the banana and avocado and put into a blender cup (I use my Ninja Blender) and add the almond milk and scoops of Shakeology® and blend until smooth. Usually in 45 seconds to a minute. Pour into 4 dessert type cups or bowls (about 3/4 cup) and then chill in the fridge for at least an hour. I did sprinkle unsweetened coconut and hemp hearts on top. You could add sliced fruit, crushed nuts, chia seeds or again plain. It is delicious anyway and now my favorite way to get my chocolate fix without undoing all my hard work. Eating clean is healthy but can still be delicious!
