protein fudge

I found this recipe from Lisa at Lunchpails and Lipstick ¬†and it is just too good not to share. I make one small change in the protein powder, but that’s it. It is a staple in my fridge…for the short amount of time it lasts before I eat it all! It is so easy. No chopping, food processing, nothing. Just throw it all together.

Ingredients

  • 1 16oz Jar Natural Creamy Peanut Butter (read your labels people! It should just be peanuts!)
  • 1 1/4 cup Natural, Raw Honey
  • 2 scoops Plant Based Chocolate Protein Powder (I use this one)
  • 3 cups Oats

Directions

  • Heat Peanut butter in the microwave for 90 seconds. Stir in honey. Mix in protein powder.
  • Combine oats with peanut butter mixture
  • Spread evenly in a 9×13″ pan and refrigerate for at least an hour, or freeze.
  • Cut into squares. Enjoy!

I promise these won’t last long! They are one of my favorites- and my kiddos!img_2705

zebra corn

Today I’m going to share a party favorite with you! We make this every Super Bowl – and it I always end up wishing I made more. First rule- always double this recipe. It is delicious! Enjoy!

Zebra Corn

ingredients

  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 10 cups plain unsalted popcorn – takes about 1/2 cup of kernels
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • semi sweet chocolate chips
  • white chocolate chips

directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Take a large rimmed baking sheet, butter it, and set aside. Pop your popcorn and place on the baking sheet.
  2. In a saucepan or pot, bring the butter, brown sugar, and 2 tbsp of water to a boil while stirring constantly.
  3. Drizzle this syrup over the popcorn and toss to coat every piece! Spread evenly on the baking sheet. (try not to eat it all right now..this is where I struggle)
  4. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden and shiny. Do not overcook! I usually pull it out after about 30minutes. Let it cool on buttered foil or parchment paper.
  5. Once cooled, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn! (A little tip- once melted, put the chocolate in a ziploc baggie and cut off a little bit from the corner- makes for an easy way to drizzle and an easy clean up! Just throw the baggie in the trash!)
  6. Allow to cool until the chocolate has hardened and then store in an airtight container- if it even lasts that long!
