Apple Pie Breakfast Pudding

3 Apr

Pudding..for breakfast?! When it’s this healthy and protein-packed, you bet!

I couldn’t decide what to call this at first. It wasn’t just yogurt. Not fluffy enough to be called a mousse. But had this creamy, rich taste that reminded me of..You guessed it, pudding.

This morning I wanted some fruit, but also wanted something full of protein like Greek yogurt. But the thought of yogurt just wasn’t exciting enough for me. So what did I do? I came up with my own concoction..as always :)

Do you think you would like the taste of a richer, creamier yogurt, mixed with a hint of apple pie? Well this is for you! The benefits are endless to this breakfast..or even snack! Apples are full of fiber, and the other ingredients are full of good protein to keep you satisfied throughout your day.

It certainly kept me a happy camper:) What will YOU be having for breakfast next?

3 Ingredient Cookies

26 Mar

Wait what?! Only THREE ingredients?! And did I mention NO added sugar?! Cookies could never be that easy! Or healthy! Well, actually..they most certainly can! These are not only easy and so very healthy, but extremely delicious!

Sunday night at my bible study, one of the girls brought cookies over for us all. They looked so good, like all oatmeal cookies look, that I had to try one. But what my mouth tasted at that very moment was no ordinary oatmeal cookie. This cookie was soft, chewy, and packed with such a delicious banana flavor! I had to ask what the ingredients were. And that’s when she told me it was so simple and only three ingredients! Of course, I went home only to make them the next day.

But of course knowing me, I spiced it up a bit and added some extras to bring out the flavors. Try it as you will. For me, chocolate is always a must. But any choice you make, it’s delicious. And healthy. And easy. Did I mention absolutely delicious?!

These will certainly be a weekly creation and my new favorite dessert every night. And no, I am not sorry that I ate over five of them when first bringing them out of the oven. Or that I’ll probably eat some for breakfast.  I did say they were healthy..right?
