Chocolate Protein Powder Pork Rind Pancakes

Yes, you read that right! I made myself some chocolate pork rind pancakes and they were amazing. I think i found my latest addiction!

Chocolate Protein Powder Pork Rind Pancakes
Yields one gorgeous pancake.

Ingredients
1/4 cup pork rinds
4 eggs
1 scoop protein powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon stevia
4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon butter

Directions
Combine the ingredients together (all but the butter) in a blender and pulse on high then turn on for a minute until all of the ingredients have combined together.

You can use the batter immediately or leave overnight in the refrigerator. I prefer the consistency and texture when I leave it overnight.

Turn the stove on to medium heat and add a medium sized heavy bottomed pan. Add the butter to the pan and pour the mixture in.

Turn the heat down to low and allow it to cook covered for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 2-3 until golden brown.

Serve with berries or just with whipped cream.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I can guarantee that this is the best strawberry banana smoothie that you will ever taste. How? I use hidden ingredients like dried Strawberry Banana Smoothiecoconut  and oats to add flavor and to fill you up.

Ingredients
1 ¼ cup frozen strawberries
2 ripe bananas
1 cup milk, cream soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk
2 tablespoons dried coconut, unsweetened
1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder (you can omit this if you want but I like the extra protein in the morning)
2 tablespoons oats (feel free to omit this if you are living a low-carb or Paleo lifestyle)
1 tablespoon sweetener (I prefer stevia but honey works just as well)

Tip
By freezing the yogurt in an ice cube tray over night, you are not diluting the the drink. This is a great trick to keep your drink cold and thick.

Directions
Combine the ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.

This serves 2 or 1 very hungry person.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Ice Cream Sandwiches

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Ice Cream SandwichesYum doesn’t even begin to describe this treat!

You can also use my Double Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe for this.

This recipe makes 2 dozen chewy large cookies or 3-4 dozen thin crisp cookies. Then 1-2 dozen ice cream sandwiches.

Ingredients
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (use only the best)
2 sticks butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
11/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups old-fashion rolled oats, uncooked
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 pint of ice cream, I prefer vanilla

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the butter and the sugar and beat until well incorporated.

Add the vanilla extract and eggs, beat until smooth.

In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder cinnamon and salt. Incorporate it to the butter mixture and then add the chocolate chips.

You can either drop the batter by the spoon full if you like thin crispy cookies or use a small ice cream scooper, if you like chewy cookies. Leave 2 inches between each cookie.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are cooked all the way.

Cool on a wire rack for five minutes before serving. These freeze beautifully so feel free to stick half of them in the freezer but I can guarantee that they will not last long.

Place a scoop of ice cream between two cookies and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Freeze for 30 minutes and serve.
