Happy tuesday punkins!
It’s the beginning of a new week…and finals for me! Bleh.
During finals week, I need lots of brain food to keep me alert and sharp for the endless hours of studying.
I will be starting off my days with something like…
2 scrambled eggs with one morningstar sausage pattie, yellow bell pepper, crazy feta, spinach and an apple on the side!
1/4 c oat bran, 1/4 c oats, 1 scoop sunwarrior vanilla protein powder, cinnamon & water microwaved for 3 min. topped with chopped apple, walnuts & maple syrup.
a green smoothie. love my carlos cup from urban!
Snacks to quietly munch on in the lib…
the only flavor of zing bar i've tried! chocolate and coconut is a winning combo. definitely recommend!
one banana halved and slathered in ab, and topped with either coconut & choco chips or hemp seeds and goji berries! maybe too messy for the lib!
up close because they're soo pwetty.
luna chocolate dipped coconut
look at those chocolatey drizzles. my favorite luna bar flavor yet!
apple sprinkled in cinnamon which happens to be awkwardly next to my senior pictures...supes cheesy!
Lunch & dinner…
spinach salad with chicken, cukes, feta, red onion, cherry tomatoes, mustard, olive oil & balsamic!
rosemary chicken and steamed broccoli with lemon
spaghetti squash with meatless grounds, tomato sauce & assorted veggies
brinner! scrambled veggies & eggs and toast with chia seed jam
curried vegetables and tofu!
And knowing me, finishing with something sweet!
this will do.
Tonight as a little good luck token for finals I whipped up these babays.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 canola oil
3 egg whites
1 T vanilla extract
1 c whole wheat flour
1/3 c oats
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
~ 1 c chopped mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8 by 8 dish with cooking spray. Mix the sugar and oil in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Add the egg whites and vanilla extract and whisk again.
Add the flour, oats, baking power, and salt. Stir until just combined.
stir stir stir!
Chop up the mini Reese’s. I chopped them in quarters first, then got lazy and just halved them!
chop chop chop!
Add the Reese’s and fold.
reese's goin swimmin! (i think i used a lot more than a cup)
With a rubber spatuala scoop the mixture into the baking dish.
top with chocolate chips if desired!
Bake 25-30 minutes, until the dough is firm in the center and a toothpick/fork comes out clean when inserted.
come to mama!
P.S. These will go fast, so you may want to make another pan for yourself…just kidding..sorta.
Have a great week!!!
