I have a weakness. A weakness for oatmeal cookies. I felt horrible eating them, until I discovered this gem of a recipe for the “NOT so unhealthy Oatmeal cookie”! Who would think you could get in a serving of protein while indulging in a tasty treat!
These cookies are so moist! I also like to add in some raisins and nuts on occasion. I hope you enjoy every morsel as much as I do. I think I’ll go bake right now:)
What do I need?
4 cups of oats
1/2 cup of egg whites
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
8 tsp vanilla Whey protein powder
2 tsp olive oil
½ cup grated coconut and almonds, each
2 tbsp cinnamon
Now what do I do?
- Take all ingredients and mix well
- Take one tbsp measurement for each cookie
- In preheated oven, bake for approx. 20 minutes.
- Take out and let cool.
- ENJOY every delicious bite
SP&B Protein Pancakes
I am huge fan of sweet potatoes and they make up a huge part of my diet when I am getting ready for a contest. Also, I love bananas because they are naturally sweet and loaded with potassium. Here is a recipe I created that is delicious and packed with protein. The protein powder I used for this recipe is Cellucor’s Cor-Performance Whey flavored in Peanut Butter Marshmallow. Peanut butter + sweet potatoes + bananas = HEAVEN! (cue the angelic choir)
Here is what you will need:
Directions:– 2 egg whites
– 3 oz sweet potato
– 3 oz banana
– 1 scoop Cellucor Protein Powder
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/8 cup brown rice flour
In one bowl, mash together your sweet potato and bananas.
In a separate bowl; beat your egg whites until fluffy with peaks and fold into your SP&B mixture.
Mix Cellucor Protein Powder, baking soda, and brown rice flour
Combine both wet and dry mixtures but do not over mix.
Step 5– Pour the pancake mixture on a non-stick pan and fry them up!
Step 6- top it off with some bananas, peanut butter, and Walden Farms calorie free syrup.

BPI Sports Meal Tip: Summer time Grilling!
DIRECTIONS for the INSIDE-OUT CHEESE BURGER:
1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.
2. Combine Cheddar and Gruyère in a small bowl.
3. Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each of 4 patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.
4. To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack. Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they’ll split open and the cheese will ooze out.) To broil: Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.
