Interesting little promo you've got there.
I'm sure you'll get some good entries!
awesomeness Renegade!...here's one to start...After including coconut oil into my diet a few weeks back...I happened upon a coconut oil muffin recipe...and have since tweaked it to include banana's...and all natural ingredients...these are addicting...
Coconut Oil/Banana Muffins
1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
½ cup sukanot
1 TBS baking powder
½ cup dried cranberries or blueberries
2-3 medium banana’s mashed
1 cup skim milk
¼ cup virgin coconut oil
1 egg lightly beaten, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
Heat oven to 400F
Mix all dry ingredients
Melt coconut oil
Combine oil w/warm milk and egg
Mix wet & dry ingredients together
Bake about 18-20 mins
Great start schizm!
I think I want to cook me up some of those.
Add some apples and Golden Gains = ftw!
Bump n snack
borrowed this tasty one from Snag...grab a couple for a snack or to satisfy a sweet craving....
1.5 cups oats
6 TBS natty PB
3 scoops Protein (a blend is better than straight whey, Lipotropic Vanilla or Choc PB is really good, bet golden gains would fair well here too!)
2 TBS honey
1 cup raisins
1/8 cup water
mix, ball em up, toss in the fridge (or freezer if you like ‘frozen cookie dough’ & eat...
I am a sucker for anything Lemon....
Lemon protein poppy seed bars
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
2 scoops vanilla whey protein
1 cup Splenda or 2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1½ cups nonfat plain yogurt (Greek preferred)
¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 ½ teaspoons lemon extract
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a 9×13″ pan with cooking oil spray.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, whey, Splenda, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and zest; stir to mix.
3. In a separate large mixing bowl, stir together yogurt, applesauce, oil, lemon extract, and egg. Add dry ingredients to wet ones, and stir just until moistened. Pour batter into pan.
4. Bake 25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing.
In college I tried a similar recipe but since in a dorm setting tried baking them at home, bringing back...turned out like a moist granola bar....first batch didn't store in the fridge and they grew 'fur' over the course of a week...
Golden Pumpkin Bars
2 scoops Controlled Labs Golden Gains
8 ounces pumpkin puree
1 cup quick oats
1 large egg
1/4 cup splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1 dash ginger
2 dash cloves
Whip egg and mix with pumpkin puree. Add the Golden Gains and all spices and mix well. Last add quick oats and mix to a past like consistancy. cook on parchment paper or greased cookie sheet/casserole dish for 30 min at 375. Let cool about 10 minutes slice and serve. I usually keep mine covered and store in the fridge to keep moist.

Play with it and make it your own. May add a creamcheese topping or some nuts. Enjoy
Lower carb higher protein banana pecan pancakes
1/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup soy flour
1/3 cup whole grain rye flour
1 whole egg
1 scoop of vanilla protein
2 tbsp of coconut oil (warmed)
1 cup of Hood Calorie Countdown skim milk
1 tsp baking powder
3 packets of stevia
1/2-1tsp of cinnamon (to taste)
1 banana sliced thin
1/4 cup of pecan pieces
Mix all dry ingredients (including nuts). Mix wet ingredients together (need to warm the milk slightly first so the coconut oil doesn't go solid). pour wet ingredients into dry, mix with fork. Add bananas last and fry like normal pancakes. May need to add additional milk to get right consistency.
It took a while to get to this recipe, i've been adjusting it over the last couple years. My wife + kids like the banana pecan pancakes and so I tried to work out a recipe I could eat and not feel bad about (or waste a cheat meal on). Whats funny is that now they like these better than restaurant banana pecan ones

You know, this thread with also having read that study on the level of ecdysterone in quinoa makes me want to try making a few quinoa based bread recipes. But first I gotta find quinoa flour at a reasonable price, holy cow its expensive at the natural stores
