This rustic cake is a delicious sweet nothings alternative to pie and uses one of the tastiest fruits of the fall harvest—cranberries. The basic recipe is very versatile and can be made with apples, pears, peaches, plums or any full-flavored, slightly acidic fruit. Just arrange the fruit in the skillet before you pour the batter over it. The cake is best served warm; if you can, put it in the oven just before you sit down to dinner.

Like most people, I love dessert. Unfortunately, most desserts are full of sugar, saturated fats, and refined carbohydrates and will ruin your attempts at getting lean and staying healthy. Today I want to share something that is a little more decadent: our sweet nothings protein packed cheesecake recipe. Like my other desserts, I substitute the empty calories for healthier ingredients and add protein to assist in muscle building without sacrificing the taste. Also suitable for diabetics a Win-win!
This strawberry shortcake protein packed (27g) overnight oatmeal is one of if not the one and only quick and easy ways to start your morning that can be taken on the go and your way to work that I have found. And better yet is made the night before and set in the fridge. With only 175 calories per serving it also makes a great dessert!
Indulge in the creamy decadence of chocolate and peanut butter while still hitting your protein goals for the day!
Looking for a way to bump up the protein content of some of your favorite treats? Here’s one of my favorites. It combines a scoop of my favorite all natural chocolate whey protein with the creamy texture and rich flavor of natural peanut butter. Combined with dates, dark chocolate, and maple syrup, you’ll definitely want to hide these treats—from yourself!
There are few things better than the smell of warm apples filling up your home during the Fall season. So, what better way to start your day than with an Apple Strudel Breakfast Muffin right from your very own oven? You can prepare the batter in the muffin tin the night before and simply pop in your oven in the morning, or you can prepare in advance and just heat up quickly in the microwave (if you prefer your muffins warm). P.S. They are also great as snacks, even unheated, any time of the day. Enjoy!
