I am not the best cook.
But sometimes, I get a wild hair and I make something…
In this case, I had an itch for chocolate
and these puppies just made themselves!
Since I am trying out this whole Anti-Inflammatory food thing…
I added walnuts and chia seeds-
to make them even MORE healthy.
Which makes me feel better about eating them.
Justification at its finest folks!
You wana try it?
OF COURSE YOU DO!
Here is the recipe..
5 tbsp ground chia seeds
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 scoops protein powder (I used MRM Vanilla Protein Powder)
1/4 cup coconut oil (or olive oil if you wish)
1/2 cup maple syrup (I used sugar free maple syrup)
2 tsp baking soda
1 (16 oz) can of pumpkin
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 eggs (I used eggbeaters)
1/2 cup walnuts (use less or more depending on your preference)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (use less or more depending on your preference)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Mix all of the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
Then stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips
These are great in the morning for a quick on-the-go breakfast
and have a good mix of protein, carbs, healthy fats and fruit!
I bet you could even make them into pancakes…
Make them and let me know what you think!
It’s almost Friday people…
Have a great day
and I will “see” you tomorrow.
