Lemon Chia Seed Protein Muffins

Lemon chia seed protein muffins

Confession: I have never made anything using lemon zest before.

Any time a recipe would call for it, I’d end up skipping that recipe altogether and making something else instead. It just seemed so hard.

Turns out, testing a lemon is really easy and takes less than a minute to actually do. All you have to do is take a regular grater or zester and use the smooth grates to get the very outer part of the lemon off. If you’re worried you won’t know what the actual lemon zest is and just end up grating the entire skin, I was the same way—trust me, you’ll know.

Anyway, the point is don’t be intimidated by the lemon zest aspect of these muffins! It’s really easy to do and absolutely worth every second of effort because they are SO. GOOD.

Cookies don’t have to be unhealthy.

These double chocolate cookies use bananas to keep them moist and give them a hint of sweetness (the riper the banana, the better!). And the secret ingredient of pea protein powder adds a little boost of protein to help keep you full.

Eat them warm with your favorite milk or milk substitute for a treat any time of the day!

Cinnamon Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes

Cinnamon banana walnut protein pancakes

There’s really nothing more satisfying for a weekend brunch or weekday breakfast than a big stack of pancakes.

But since most traditional pancake recipes are full of little else but a ton of white flour, sugar, and oil, they tend to leave you feeling overfull yet surprisingly hungry just a short time later.

So unlike regular pancakes, these cinnamon banana walnut protein pancakes will leave you feeling full and satisfied, yet still energized enough to tackle your day. They’re moist, sweet (but not too sweet), and delicious, not to mention they have a ton of protein, good-for-you carbs, and healthy fats to fuel you through your workouts and life.

Mini Crustless Berry Protein Cheesecake Cups Recipe

Crustless Mini Berry Cheesecake Bites

I love cheesecake.

New York style, berry, chocolate, mocha, I love it all. But since most regular cheesecake can set you back around 600 calories and ample amounts of fat per slice, I tend to avoid it on all but a couple of special occasions per year.

But healthy cheesecake? I’ll eat that any chance I get.

These cheesecake bites are super high in protein (6g per mini cup!), and are made out of nothing but healthy ingredients like Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and berries. They’re sweet, satisfying, and perfect as breakfast, pre or post-workout, or a snack any time of the day.
