Isa Healthy-er Peanut Butter Carob Chip Protein VeggieCookies

I invented this tonight, my measurements are mostly approximate as I sorta just winged it together.  Per cookie roughly 7g of protein, 1/2 a serving of vegetables, a little fruit, and whole grains and fiber.  Plus the nutritional benefits of whatever nutritional/protein shake you use, Isalean has lots of great probiotics and stuff.  And, they are low-ish in sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup carob or cacao chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 3 TBS chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (if you don’t have it, grind up some almonds in a blender or food processor, or crush in a baggie with a rolling pin, doesn’t have to be super fine)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or quinoa flour
  • 1 cup all purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 scoops (or 1 packet or 4 TBS) IsaLean PRO vanilla or chocolate, or, the same amount of any protein powder of your choosing.  Add more if your dough is too wet at the end
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I added a few extra tablespoons…)
  • 1/2 cup liquid coconut oil (or canola or other mild flavored oil, do not use olive oil!)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp baking powder, or 1 tsp baking soda plus 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3 tbs Amazing Greens (or other green drink powder) chocolate flavor
  • a few tablespoons of warm water, add as needed at the end
  • OPTIONAL: Want more chocolate?  Try crushing up a couple IsaDelight Plus chocolates (or a half a bar of dark chocolate) and throwing it in the mix.

 

Directions

  1.  Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix all ingredients together, mix dry first then add wets.
  3. Dough should appear crumbly and dry, but easily stick together into a ball when you squeeze it.  If its too dry, add a bit of water.
  4. Form balls of dough with your hands.  They should be a little smaller than a golf ball.
  5. Place balls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet
  6. Bake for 13-16 minutes
  7. Let cool at least 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet or eating

Whey Better Mac and Cheese

This decadent comfort food gets a muscle-building protein kick with whey.  You can find unflavored whey protein on Amazon.  To add more protein, use Barilla Protein-plus elbow pasta.  With protein pasta, expect about 25g of protein and 300 calories for a serving (half of this recipe).  Add in veggies if you need more food to fill you up but still keep the calories low.

How to Make Perfect Seitan | One Green Planet

How to Make Perfect Seitan | One Green Planet.

If you do not have a wheat allergy or intolerance, seitan can be a great way to get extra vegan protein in your diet as well as add meat-like texture to dishes.  If you are sensitive to soy, then this is one of the few foods you can use to help boost up your daily protein.  As I am sensitive to soy and dairy, and need to get about 200g of protein a day, this can be very difficult.  I eat lots of beans, whole grains, and eggs, but seitan seriously boosts the protein i can get.
