I started my day off with a 5 mile run at the gym. I had a bit of an inner debate whether to run indoors or outdoors. On the one hand, I didn’t really feel like braving the cold, ice, and snow today to run outside. On the other hand, I was a little leery of driving on the snow-covered roads this morning. But I personally am not a fan of road running (LOATHE IT, actually!), and, really, by the time I drive to the park— I might as well just drive a little further so I can run in the warmth of the gym. So that’s what I opted to do!
|Aaaaaaaand I’m off to the gym!
I CANNOT rave enough about the breakfast I whipped up this morning— protein blueberry crisp! Lordy, this tastes like a dessert— ya’ll NEED to try this recipe out! As always, its 100% clean.
|This is so good— makes me want to eat it for breakfast, brunch, brinner, & bracks (breakfast+snacks?)
Protein Blueberry Crisp (Serves 2)
2 Cups fresh blueberries
2 Packets Truvia/Stevia (or whatever sweetener you prefer)
Juice from 1/2 a Lemon
2 Scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (Check to make sure the brand you use is clean— I use About Time/SDC Nutrition Birthday Cake flavor whey protein powder)
4 Tablespoons Oats
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Ginger
Juice from 1 Lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place fresh blueberries in a bowl. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a lemon over the top of the blueberries. Sprinkle with 2 packets of Truvia, then gently mix the blueberries to coat evenly with lemon juice and sweetener. Arrange coated blueberries in a small baking dish (a small loaf pan would work well— I personally used 2 individual-sized 14 ounce ramekins). Then, mix protein powder, oats, cinnamon, and ginger in a bowl with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Squeeze the juice from 1 whole lemon over the dry ingredients, then mix together until a crumbly consistency (I mixed it up in my Ninja for a few seconds to do this). Spread crumble mixture evenly over top of the coated blueberries. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the top is golden brown and crispy/crunchy. Enjoy!
I absolutely loved this recipe! I have a raging sweet tooth, and this is perfect for those cravings! It tastes like a scrumptious dessert, only its healthy AND clean. You can’t beat that. I’m planning on creating a version of this recipe made with more cinnamon and using apples instead— a protein apple crisp! Stay tuned for how that turns out!
Check back later tonight— I’m making clean buffalo chicken wraps for dinner tonight, and you will NOT want to miss that yum-o recipe, I assure you!
