We’re Back…

Yes, you read right…we are back (and no, we have not fallen off the face of the earth as you likely suspected)!

It has been a long hiatus for us and we are finally back on track – with two new recipes to boot (I decided to give you an extra recipe to make up for being MIA).

The first recipe I want to share with you is a super yummy veggie burger recipe. I am so glad that I decided to become a vegetarian and I know it was the right decision, but every once in a while I just get that craving for a big, fat burger. So, the other day I decided to give in – no wait, not fully – I did however, decide to be a little more adventurous then just reach for the nearest frozen veggie burger. I made a portabella mushroom burger, with “guacamole” sauce (or at least your taste buds will think that’s what it is…sneaky right?). It was so tasty that I just had to share it with you!

So, here is what you will need:

Portabella Mushroom cap

Avocado

Cottage Cheese

Your favourite spices (I used steak spice, roasted pepper spice and paprika)

Lettuce

Multigrain Tortilla (or your favourite type of bun)

Onions

Olive Oil

The Trick-Your-Tastebuds Sauce:

  1. Cut slices of avocado and mash with a potato masher
  2. Mix cottage cheese (1 tbsp) with the mashed avocado and continue to mash the mixture
  3. Add your favourite spices (to taste)

The Burger:

  1. Fry your portabella “burger” in olive oil with your favourite spices until cooked
  2. Fry onions in olive oil
  3. Place your burger in the tortilla (or bun), add the sauce to the indented part of the mushroom cap and garnish with lettuce and onions

This burger was seriously delicious and completely satisfied my burger craving…mission accomplished!

The second recipe I’m going to share with you is my Peanut Butter Protein Bites. I am obsessed with these – they are so yummy! They are perfect for when you can’t decide if you’re craving something sweet or salty (but if you are craving something a little more chocolaty try my extra special Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites)!

Peanut Butter Protein Bites:

You will need:

2 packages of plain oatmeal

2 tbsp peanut butter (I use all natural, but use your preference)

½ scoop vanilla protein powder

1-2 tbsp of spelt flour (optional, but will stick together better with this)

1 tbsp olive oil margarine

This recipe is so easy you will not believe it!

Steps to Make It:

1. Melt the peanut butter and margarine in a bowl together (approx. 30 seconds in the microwave)

2. Add protein powder and oatmeal then stir until the margarine and peanut butter have coated all of the oatmeal and protein powder.

3. Stir in flour until mixed thoroughly

4. Using a spoon make little oatmeal bites (roll into balls)

5. Place in container (not covered) and freeze for minimum of 10 minutes

For a more chocolaty treat…

You will need:

2 packages of plain oatmeal

2 tbsp peanut butter (I use all natural, but use your preference)

½ scoop vanilla protein powder

1-2 tbsp of spelt flour (optional, but will stick together better with this)

1 tbsp olive oil margarine

1 tbsp coconut flakes (unsweetened)

1-2 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Follow the same directions as above but also mix in the chocolate chips and coconut flakes in Step 2

Enjoy these little drops of heaven 😉
