With the fair here, Halloween right around the corner, and a hint of cooler weather, it looks like fall might FINALLY be here. This summer has been a hot one, and we couldn’t be more excited for a change in seasons.
With that being said, I don’t know what it is about the change of seasons and incoming cooler weather that always, without fail, makes me want to eat unhealthier. Could it be that summer is leaving and we think we can hide that fading summer bod in heavier clothes? Or, could it be that fall and winter doesn’t offer as many choices to eat healthy with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all happening within a 3-month period. If you’re like us, maybe it’s a mix of a lot of things.
Also without fail, each year as January hits and I’m beginning to think about New Year’s Resolutions, I regret all the unhealthy eating choices I made those three months prior. Not this year, friends! This fall I’ve made the choice to Eat Different and be more diligent about better eating choices amidst all the heavier, fall food. Like we’ve always said at Super Shakes, healthy eating starts in the kitchen!
Here are three at-home, healthy recipes for you to try out this fall when you want something decadent and sweet without losing track of your fitness goals. Each recipe includes protein powder as a main ingredient from our delicious Super Shakes containers that you can buy and stock your kitchen with any time of the year. While there are multiple Super Shakes mixes and flavors of containers you can buy, these recipes feature protein powder from the Super Fit Dutch Chocolate Fudge container.
1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
This recipe is a play on the traditional peanut butter cookie recipe (1 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg) but with an added chocolate flavor and protein boost! In only 10 minutes you’ll have delicious cookies that will satisfy your sweet tooth and also keep you full without having to eat a ton.
Take 2/3 cup of peanut butter, 2 eggs, ½ cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of Super Fit Dutch Chocolate Fudge protein powder and mix together all in one bowl. Mix well until fully combined and then drop balls on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not overbake! They will harden after they come out and overbaking will make them dry. BONUS: these cookies are flourless!
2. Chocolate Mousse
Y’all, this recipe is so easy you almost can’t even consider it a recipe because it requires one step. ONE STEP! For all of you who can’t get your families out of the door in the morning with any less than 10 steps (and many prayers), this recipe is for you. Solidarity, friends!
Simply add 1 scoop of Super Fit Dutch Chocolate Fudge protein powder and 1 cup of whipping cream to a bowl and mix until fully combined. This recipe is so healthy that you can double or triple the recipe to serve more people (or just eat it all yourself) without guilt.
3. No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter Energy Bites
I’ve been making these bites for years now and almost always have a few in the fridge. My husband, who is not a healthy eater by choice, loves them and they’re also a great,kid-friendly snack for lunch boxes. Plus, with this recipe you can really be creative with what all you add. Sometimes I throw in some unsweetened coconut flakes,and sometimes I throw in some chocolate chips; it’s one of those whatever suits your family’s fancy type of recipes.
In one large mixing bowl, mix together 2 large mashed bananas, ¾ old-fashioned oats, 2 tablespoons of flax seed (you can leave this out if you like but, otherwise, I almost never eat flax seed!), ½ cup creamy peanut butter, 1 scoop of Super Fit Dutch Chocolate Fudge protein powder, and ¼ cup of chocolate chips. You’re going to have to mix hard for this recipe to make sure the dry ingredients really blend with the wet ones but, hey, we’re all about mini arm workouts, too.
Once mixed, roll into balls and lay them one by one beside each other in a gallon-sized bag. Lay bag flat in refrigerator and pull out however many you want throughout the week until gone (if they even last a week).
