BAKED ZOATMEAL

So I have been extremely busy with the ending of school, and my god awful mutual fund exam.. kill me now right. I’m still keeping up with my eating but experiencing INSANE night binging habits.. and when I say insane, it’s so abnormal… well from whatI’m used to anyways.

I’ve talked to alot of people in recovery and they are experiencing the same thing which is reassuring but it still feels so wrong at times. Every single night I will get out of my bed 4-5 times are eat carb and sugar rich foods. This may look like i’m restricting during the day but i’m not at all.. i have been tracking my macros these past couple of days to make sure i’m on track, and I seem to be. I can’t wait to get past this stage in recovery and start eating intuitively. I swear, i’m hungry 24/7. Anyways, about them zoats…

This morning I made these beautiful and easy baked oats in a ramkin from my all time favorite store – DOLLARAMA, holla haha. They have so many cool dishes that are always no more than $3.00 so you can’t go wrong haha.

RECIPE:

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup milk (almond, cows, soy)

1/2 cup shredded zucchini

1/2 mashed banana

1 tbsp flaxseed

1 tsp cinnamon

any other add-ins you want!

Place all ingredients into a mason jar and let sit overnight in the fridge. In the morning preheat oven to 350 and pour mixture into a ramkin or any small baking pan. Bake for 15-20 mins and serve with greek yogurt and nuts, or chocolate if you need the sweetness 😀

Carrot Cake overnight protein zoats

I had a carrot stick left in the back of my fridge and I am not one to waste food so last night I prepped a jar of carrot cake overnigth oats for this mornings breakfast! I love overnight oats because i’m always on the go so they are so easy to just grab and go and the variations are endless!

Recipe:

  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • ½ scoop vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup zucchini
  • •1 tbsp raisins
  • •1 tbsp flaxseed
  • •1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon

Combine all of the top ingredients together in a jar and top with enough water until covered completely. Shake and store in fridge overnight. The oats will expand by morning and the texture should be thick! You can serve cold or heat up in the microwave like I did for these! Be careful to watch the oats or they will explode and you will have a mess! Top with the following ingredients & enjoy 😀

  • 1 tbsp walden farms pancake syrup
  • Greek yogurt and almonds for topping

Oatmeal is my go to breakfast option and they are packed with nurtrion!

Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Something that I used to love before I started restricting were peanut butter cookies. I can’t believe I gave up peanut butter in general for over a year; now I go through jars like crazy!

Flourless chocolate peanut butter cups

Is it possible that these are healthy? They are flourless, sugarless and downright delicious!

Recipe:

1 1/2 cups all-natural creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

½ tsp baking soda

1/2 cup carob chips

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together and then fold in the carob chips. Grease a small cupcake pan and place dough into each cup. Bake for 15 mins, and let cool on wire rack! Easy as that folks 😀

Chocolate AboutTime Cauliflower Pancakes!

I LOVE pancakes, probably because of the endless variations there are with creating them! I had a bunch of cauliflower that I wasn’t going to use and I finally had a couple minutes free to spend time in the kitchen so I created this beautiful stack which let me tell you, are now my favorite protein pancakes by far.

I am thankful enough to have won this 2 lb tub of abouttime protein from an instgram contest and now that I’m obsessed with it, i’m going to have to order some more! the flavor is incredible and the texture blends up so well that you can’t even tell that the powder is in in the recipes I’ve used it in. The only negative side is the price for me which is around $50 but I would need to order it online because it’s unavailable here. Thats the worst part about trying expensive products, when you fall in love with them you feel you need to order more! This happened when I tried a Questbar for the first time.. after I baked them, I was hooked and now OBSESSED.

Recipe

Yields one stack of pancakes

1/2 scoop chocolate abouttime protein powder

2 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup riced cauliflower

2 tbsp almond milk

2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce

Placeall ingredients into blender and blend until all mixed! Then Place batter onto preheated skillet and cook each side for 4-5 minutes or until cooked. I topped my stack with a mixture of 2 tbsp PB2 peanut butter with 2 tbsp greek yogurt. The pieces on top are from a PureProtein cookie dough bar! Enjoy
