Post Workout Cookies (Advoreos)

I may be slightly addicted to AdvoCare products, but I’m okay with that.  They work, I feel awesome, and it’s allowed us to have a future that doesn’t suck.  So, COOKIES.

  • 1 cup almond flour or 1 cup of raw almonds made into almond flour in a food processor
  • 4-5 scoops chocolate Post Workout Recovery Powder (2 packets)
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or raw honey, I’m just obsessed with pure maple syrup)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients; mix well.
  2. Dough will be sticky but drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, then form into what looks like a cookie, unless you don’t mind ugly cookies.  Mine are ugly.  They will spread just a little tiny bit while baking, but they won’t rise, so don’t make them too thin or too thick.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins (NOTE:  Place oven racks closer to the upper middle of the oven).  While baking, prepare filling:
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 scoops vanilla Muscle Gain powder )
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Combine ingredients in a small container, refrigerate until cookies are cooled.  This will thicken while you wait.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people say that they “deserve” a cookie or cake or something nasty because they just worked out or they plan on working out later today or they joined a gym once.  I’m all about earning a cheat meal, but why cheat when you can have awesome cookies that help with feeding your muscles?!  Just saying.  Hope y’all like them!

I’m baaack!

Slide11Hey y’all!  I logged back into this thing after TWO YEARS of inactivity.  I kept the site because I kept saying, “I’ll get back to the blog…next week.”  Which turned into next week, which turned into next month, in the New Year, when I have time…blah, blah, blah.  That’s life, right?  Living on Someday Isle… (Someday Isle is straight from Brian Tracy-great author)

“Someday I’ll get to the gym.”

“Someday I’ll lose weight.”

“Someday I’ll get out of debt.”

“Someday I’ll teach my kid how to tie his shoes.” (GUILTY)

“Someday I’ll quit smoking/drinking cokes/wasting time.”

It’s easy to get there.  It’s also easy to get out, but which is more comfortable?

Well, guess what?  Comfortable isn’t going to get you any closer to any of those “someday I WILL” things you need to do to live a long, happy, productive, and fulfilling life.

So what is it that you’ve been putting off because your fear of actual success at it is just too scary?  Do it.

What is it that you’ve been putting off because you “always have tomorrow” or because you “don’t have time?”  Your time is spent how you choose to spend it.  What you allow to continue is what will continue.  Want more time?  Make more time.  Simple as that.

<steps off soapbox>

So, now that my two-year trip to Someday Isle has come to a close, I have to admit- Someday Isle Stop Eating Red Velvet isn’t a real place.  So I made these.  Enjoy.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup pure canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, ground in the food processor into powder
  • 2 packs of Stevia (or 2 T of honey or maple syrup, or sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/2 T pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 T cinnamon
  1. Mix ingredients.
  2. Make pancakes.
  3. Devour.  We used sugar free maple syrup.

I was worried that these would be weirdly textured like most “healthy” pancakes, especially since there isn’t any flour in them, but they were amazing.  We will definitely make them again.  They were even superhero approved!  You could also add a scoop of protein powder or top with bananas or baked apples!

 

Update:  This morning we added the filling from the Post Workout Recovery Oreos on top and it was amazing.  It also filled in the protein for the protein/complex carb/vegetable balance of the meal.  Here’s the recipe:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 scoops vanilla Muscle Gain powder )
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Mix all ingredients.  You may need to microwave the coconut oil to get it to liquid form.  I found it was easier to mix with a small whisk.

Lemon berry smoothie

Handful of frozen raspberries
2 large frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana
Juice of one lemon
2 cups coconut water
Two handfuls of organic baby spinach

Blend! Add more water if you prefer it to be thinner. Makes two servings!
Awesome for post workout, coconut water is awesomely hydrating.

Almond Pancakes

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup almond/coconut milk (or any non dairy milk, we like the almond and coconut blend.  One of the boys’ pediatricians said that this blend is best for brain development or something like that.  I’m no doctor, but this stuff is delicious.)
  • 6 T organic coconut oil
  • 3 T local honey
  • cinnamon
  1. Mix all of this together and prepare like normal pancakes.

We all used different toppings.  Batman used honey, Superman used sugar free syrup, the Husband had a mixture of those two, and I mixed some Greek yogurt with coconut oil and honey.  My mixture with some pineapple would be awesome, or maybe some berries.  This could also be good topped with my Muscle Gain filling.
