Top 5 of 2012!

With 2012 being the year of starting the blog, I certainly don’t have quite as many posts as others, but I did my best to share what I could. I’m pleased to say that the recipes that popped up in my top 5 posts from 2012 are some of my personal favorites that I’ve revisited time and time again since posting.

5. Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

Barr & Table Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

You all know I love peanut butter and chocolate, not to mention my love for CalNaturale Svelte, so whenever I’m in the mood for a protein shake, this is my go-to! I’ve also started adding a couple handfuls of spinach because you can never have too many greens!

4. Recipe Remix: Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes

I was so pleased with the way these pancakes came out. They’re light and fluffy and so filling!

3. Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Protein Oats & Quinoa.. and Giveaway Winners!

Before I became obsessed with my Sweet Breakfast Scramble, which I recently slimmed down, my favorite breakfast was oatmeal. Overnight oats are always so easy when I know I have a busy morning ahead of me. In the interest of adding a little extra protein, I decided to swap half of the oats with some quinoa and it was a hit!

2. Foodie Friday: Pumpkin Fest and a Giveaway Winner!

I know I get a little pumpkin fever as soon as fall hits and judging by pinterest, everyone else and their moms do too, so it really shouldn’t surprise me that this post was a topper! The souffle is a definite hit when I want to feel like I’m eating a decadent breakfast without the calories.

Foodie Friday: Pumpkin Fest and a Giveaway Winner!

Did you know that October 26th is National Pumpkin Day? Although, based on what I’ve seen on pinterest, I’m pretty sure once October 1st hit, everyday has been National Pumpkin Day for many. I’ve definitely had fun playing with some pumpkin recipes this week so I have a couple for you today.

Pumpkin Protein Souffle with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling & Frosting

Serves 1
Adapted from Wish & Whimsy

Barr & Table Tone It Up Perfect Fit Pumpkin Protein Souffle Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling Frosting

Ingredients

Souffle
2 egg whites
1 packet Perfect Fit Protein [or 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder]
1/4 cup pumpkin puree [not pumpkin pie filling; I use Libby’s]
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk [I use Almond Breeze]
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Filling & Topping
1 cinnamon cream cheese Laughing Cow wedge, divided*
1/2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine all souffle ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined. Pour into a greased ramekin. Cut your cream cheese wedge in half and place half of it in the middle of your souffle. It will sink a bit, so be careful as you transfer your souffle to the oven. Bake for 30 minutes.

While this is baking, prepare your frosting by heating the other half of the cream cheese wedge with the almond milk. Microwave for about 10 seconds just to warm everything up and to help it smooth out. Mix it together until smooth.

Once your souffle is finished baking, pour your frosting over top and enjoy!

*If you can’t find Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese, you can sub 1 tbsp low fat cream cheese & 1 tsp cinnamon. But ask your grocery store to get this in stock immediately because it is just. that. good.
