Good evening & welcome to another baking round up, I will be your host this evening as we take a look at what has been baked in the kitchen for the past few weeks.
OK, so first up was Lemon & Poppy Seed Cookies – These are actually the closest to real cookies I’ve made, the rest have either been too dry or too soft. The recipe was based on one from Protein Treats By Nicola, I just added poppy seeds to them & omitted the lemon zest – after I took that stacked picture I did glaze them. *a word of advice about glazing – do it while your mix is runny, it does start to thicken after a while & can make glazing difficult*
Next up was breakfast on a day off from work…..banana & peanut butter pancakes! for these I used egg,milk, a mashed banana and oat flour for the mix & layered them by spreading peanut butter over, then sliced banana & finished the top with some agave!
Then, I went on a bit of a baking mission as I was on holiday from work. I made super low carb brownies (a recipe found on Protein Pow) in one batch I added blueberries & raspberries & in the next batch I added those as well as some white chocolate drops & pecan pieces. I personally thought they were a little too dry, but the trainers in the gym seemed to like them! I also made mini chocolate, banana & blueberry muffins and then because I had some fruit left over I made white chocolate & raspberry protein muffins – these were heavenly and did not see the gym the be given out!
And finally, Gluten Free nut muffins. The recipe called for peanut butter, but I switched it for cashew & added some blueberries to the mix. I also added 20g of vanilla protein, just for an extra kick 🙂
It was my birthday last week & my wonderful husband made me Lemon Cake:
