Mini Pumpkin Pie

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use PE Science)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 6 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup reduced sugar dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp. white chocolate chips (can substitute with chocolate chips)
  • 1/2-1 tbsp. Walden Farms syrup (can use sugar free syrup)

Combine your dry ingredients first and mix well. Next stir in the peanut butter, then add syrup. I use my hands to knead the mixture till it's completely mixed, then roll into balls. This yielded 7 protein balls. Can double ingredients to make more. Keep refrigerated.

Mini Chocolate Cream Pie

  • Cookies:
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use PE Science)
  • 60 grams (1/4 cup) pure pumpkin or 60 grams unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 8 grams sugar free jello pudding mix (I use cheesecake flavor)
  • 1 tsp sprinkles (optional, can use any mix-ins: mini chocolate chips, mini m&ms, etc)
  • 1 tbsp. Walden Farms pancake syrup (or sugar free syrup)
  • spash of water and stevia
  • Icing:
  • 2 tbsp. whipped cream cheese (you can also use 20 grams fat free cream cheese)
  • 8 grams vanilla protein powder 
  • splash of water
  • stevia to taste

For cookies: combine all ingredients and mix well. Batter will be thick and gooey. Spoon mixture onto cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. You should have enough for 4 cookies. Bake on 350 for 10-12 minutes. 

For icing: Combine cream cheese and protein powder first and add in very little water. You want just enough to mix the icing, but not make it runny. It should be thick and fluffy like frosting. Once the cookies are cooled, you can spread the mixture between two of them to make a sandwich. You should have enough frosting to make 2 cookie sandwiches.

*for less fat you can use fat free cream cheese for the icing.
