Steel Cut Oat & Greek Yogurt Blueberry Scones

Healthy blueberry scones made with 3 times less butter and sugar than traditional recipe. White flour makes only 1/3 of the dough, substituted by steel cut oats and whole wheat flour. To make the scones moist I used Greek yogurt. Perfect Back to School snack. Confession: I have never made scones before but I’ve been buying Northern Gold steel cut oats from Costco for over a year. On a box, there is a blueberry scone recipe with 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar. But I was intrigued…

Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Protein Bars Recipe

Ever since I posted my first protein bar recipe, I wanted to make another one but higher in protein, lower in sugar and fat. And it’s not easy because nut bars rely on nut butter and sticky sugary liquids like agave and honey to hold them together. I tried to cut down the nut butter and agave to almost nothing and replace with almond milk. I also tried to use chia gel as a glue. Finally, after much testing, I came up with a copycat version of these Quaker…

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bar Recipe

Homemade protein bar is my saver when I’m shopping, out with the kids or any time I know I won’t have access to a healthy food. As well is my Magic Bullet Green Smoothie ( I add a scoop of brown rice protein powder to it and some people think its gross:)). Protein bars cover healthy fats, carbs and protein and the smoothie has my greens. I’m good to go! That’s why I never eat junk when I’m out.

4 Ingredient Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

4 Ingredient Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

I originally started experimenting with so popular 3 ingredient banana protein pancakes – banana, protein powder and egg whites. They are not bad but the texture reminds me more of a sweet omelette. After about at least 10 different variations of ingredients I have settled on these oatmeal protein pancakes. Fluffy enough, not too chewy, sweet in moderation, completely healthy, packed with 5 g of protein and only 43 calories each! Sounds good to me. I usually have 4-5 pancakes and am good till lunch. My favourite toppings…
