LABRADA Nutrition - Jamie Eason Isolate Whey

I am pretty sure it is no secret that I love that baking with protein powder!! I was beyond thrilled and honored when LABRADA Nutrition contacted me and asked if I would try their Lean Body for Her whey in some recipes.  
They sent me two flavors of Jamie Eason Whey Isolate from their Lean Body for Her line. 

Natural Vanilla
Per scoop - 150 calories 3F 6C 25P

Natural Chocolate 
 Per scoop - 150 calories 3F 6C 25P

This whey is great for anyone with celiac disease or a lactose intolerance! 
Too many protein powders are filled with artificial flavors and colors.  None of that in this bag!

I could not wait to start baking!!
*Note that when I use protein powder in baking, I use 30 grams for a scoop to stay consistent*

How about some chocolate cookies for breakfast?!
Make that an entire plate of cookies for only 260 calories! 

Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Cookies
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Jamie Eason Whey (30g)
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin (240g)
  • 1 T egg substitute (15g)
  • 2 T oat flour (sub any flour) (10g)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • sweetener to taste (3-4 packets)
  1. Mix everything together in a bowl
  2. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes
  3. Eat all the cookies
Whole batch - 260 calories 3F 33C 26P

Go ahead! Make everyone jealous by telling them you ate a dozen cookies for breakfast! 
These also freeze well so fell free to make a double or triple batch!

 Some people struggle to get enough veggies in their diet.  If that sounds like you, then try some spinach pancakes! Yes, you read that right! Spinach pancakes!! They taste so good that you will forget you are eating a whole cup of spinach! 
Spinach Pancakes
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Jamie Eason Whey (30g)
  • 1 cup canned spinach (240g)
  • 3 T egg substitute (46g)
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • dash salt
  1. Drain spinach well
  2. Mix protein, egg, baking powder, and salt
  3. Stir in spinach
  4. Cook like regular pancakes

Popeye would love these!! 

I cannot wait until next St. Patrick's Day! Everyone will be making these!
I top mine off with a little spray butter, sugar free syrup, and a sprinkle of salt.  Perfection!

Ready for dessert? 
How about some Healthy Chocolate Brownies?

Yes! Soft, chocolatey, delicious brownies that are good for you!!
You could just eat one...but why stop there? The whole batch, all six bars, only has about 270 calories!

Let's get crazy and add some frosting to these already fabulous brownies!
So simple.  Just mix together some fat free cream cheese, a little unsweetened cocoa powder, and some sweetener.  

Now that is what I call dessert!
I guarantee no one will guess the secret ingredients that makes these brownies so soft and moist!
Check out the recipe for yourself.

One of my favorite things to make has got to be pancakes! You can make basically any flavor and they are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! 
With Fall right around the corner, I decided to whip up a batch of Butternut Squash Pancakes. 

I love the combination of cinnamon, vanilla, and squash! The vanilla whey mixed up great.
Someone needs to capture the smell of these in a candle! I would burn it all day every day!!

Butternut Squash Pancakes
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Jamie Eason Whey (30g)

  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • sweetener to taste
  1. If using frozen squash, cook on stove top or microwave to defrost.  If using fresh squash, chop into cubes, steam, and puree.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook like regular pancakes! Be sure to use nonstick spray and cook long enough before trying to flip!
Whole stack - 210 calories 2F 27C 20P
 This might be my new favorite protein pancake recipe!

The Natural Chocolate whey is great for a dip!
 Chocolate Dip
  1. Add water to whey a little at a time until it becomes a pudding consistency.
  2. Dip apple slices, strawberries, pretzels, animal crackers...anything!
The dip contains 112 calories 2F 4.5C 19P
Such a great post workout snack!

I even tricked my husband and gave him a scoop of the Natural Chocolate whey for his post workout shake.  
I asked him later how his shake was...He said it did taste a little different, but that it was great!! Watch out ladies! Your man might try to steal your protein! No whey Jose! Ha, see what I did there...

I absolutely love these after a tough workout!

You must try these Super Soft Vanilla Cookies! 

 I topped them with some pink sprinkles just to make them a little more girly!
Try them as cookie sandwiches!! A little fat free cream cheese between two cookies...heavenly!!
