Jennifer DiDonato: Hi everyone, welcome to Made Fit TV, I am your host Jennifer DiDonato and this is episode number 34, so thanks so much for joining us. Made Fit is everyone's source for health and fitness information and entertainment. So of course we are not in the gym in the basement like we always are because I like to throw in some recipes, I want to get in the kitchen, because I understand that nutrition is such a huge, huge obstacle to overcome. It is with me, I'll admit it, it's like that with a lot of people. So my goal today is to show you a recipe that can be a good meal or a snack replacement to get great amount ratio of proteins, carbs and fats and lean sources of those proteins to incorporate more into your nutrition plan, because I know as you are working or you may be married, you have to cook diner, you have to pick up the kids, it's hard for you getting those good quality proteins and amino acids. So today is going to be a great recipe for that and it is Double Chocolate Protein Cookies. Okay, don't shut this is off, I know isn't protein, you are thinking, protein cookies, but I guarantee you, they are really great, I've made them before, I make them a lot. And even people that don't like health food like these cookies, so let's get started. For the ingredients, I am going to start off with the wet ingredients first. As you can see, I kind of already measured everything but I'll be going over what is what. We have Splenda brown sugar blend, we got a little bit of wheat flour, oats, choco protein powder of your choice, we got a little bit of chocolate just to add in there, and also we got some three egg whites and of course apple sauce we are using in place of butter. If you haven't heard of that, definitely recommend it, okay. At the first, I am going to start with the eggs. Martha Stewart does this for her eggs where she breaks them in a separate bowl just in case some shells get in there. But I am going to it today because I think I am good, I trust myself. If there is a little bit of crunchiness in there, well I will eat. Next thing we are going to do is, I have a quarter cup Splenda brown sugar blend, I put that in there, you measure it out. You know tightly packed, you can pack it in there. Next thing, pure vanilla extract, we're just going to put in about a teaspoon of the vanilla. It gives a kind of a distinct flavor, just kind of perks them up a little bit. Now one thing, you just want to blend until it's nice and creamy. Now the next thing I want you to do is I want you to gradually add this next ingredients. This is going to be just a quarter of wheat flour. You can get the stuff at any type of grocery store, it doesn't have to be like at a whole food or specialty grocery store, just whole grain or whole wheat flour. It's a lot better than bleached flour, because it's low on the glycemic index. Next thing, the oats, we have three cups of oats. Make sure that these are the -- they are almost like the quick oats because we have that chopped up a little bit smaller, it's easier for them to combine and everything. I just want to kind of mix it a little bit as I go along, just so it doesn't dry up on me. Now we got one cup of chocolate protein powder. It can be the powder of your choice, your favorite kind. Just make sure that it's sugar-free and that there is low fat in there because I know that some protein powders can have a lot of stuff in there, alright. Next thing, I mentioned the applesauce, in place of the eggs, oops! excuse me, I am trying to hurry up you to fit all this in. A quarter of a cup of applesauce, okay, get that in there. I am just going to -- before I let you go for one moment, I am just going to put a dash of cinnamon. Cinnamon gives a little bit of a kick and it's just a different flavor in there and plus also studies show that cinnamon holds you overfill if it longer keeps associated. So it's good to try those out in our recipes. So I am just going to sit here and stir this for
