Snickerdoodle & Oreo Protein Cookies

14581542_738488666960_2317237715070349502_n
Last night I decided to make Snickerdoodle Protein Cookies with the brand new seasonal Snickerdoodle Meal Replacement Shakes using our friend Brandi’s AdvoOreo recipe! They are so quick and easy AND DELICIOUS!

First of all these are seasonal shakes as well as the Caramel Macchiato and Pumpkin Spice shakes. So if you want some of these you better get them while they last because once they are gone they are GONE!

What’s Needed:

  • 1 cup almond flour or 1 cup of raw almonds made into almond flour in a food processor
  • 2 Packets of Snickerdoodle Meal Replacement Shakes
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels

Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients; mix well. Dough will be sticky but drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, then form into what looks like a cookie. They will spread just a little tiny bit while baking, but they won’t rise, so don’t make them too thin or too thick.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins (NOTE: Place oven racks closer to the upper middle of the oven).

If you would like to make the Snickerdoodle Oreo filling then while baking, prepare the filling in a separate bowl:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 packet of Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels

Combine ingredients in a small container, refrigerate until cookies are cooled. This will thicken while you wait.

Once the cookies have baked, spread the filling on one of them then top it off with another.

Great tasting hint: If you leave them in the fridge over night they taste even better!

Cyber Monday? NO… CYBER WEEK!

AdvoCare Cyber Monday

Whoever came up with the idea of Cyber Monday is a genius! The way everything is moving online now that was a great idea. It keeps you from having to get around the Black Friday mess (the long waits, the crowds, etc.). It also allows you to order form your own home and have items shipped directly to your front door and most of the time within 2 days of ordering. Know what’s even MORE genius!? How about CYBER WEEK! That’s right – an ENTIRE week of discounts! That’s what AdvoCare just shocked us with and we learned very early on that when they say “limited quantities” or “while supplies last” they mean it. As I’m writing this post they’ve already run out of the sale price quantity on one of our all time favorite products, Catalyst. :..( Good thing we ordered a bunch today. The latest these items will be available if this Friday, December 4th, but don’t wait around because…

ONCE THE SALE QUANTITIES ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE!

AdvoCare Spark Cyber Monday CanistersI’m a numbers guy, so when I did the math this is what I came up with: Mariah and I use Spark EVERY day (2-3 times per day each). That’s 4-6 scoops total per day. Right now Spark canisters are $7 OFF. That’s INSANE! We stocked up on Spark because knowing we are going to use it every day it makes sense to get it now instead of spending $7 more per canister later on something we know we are going to purchase anyway. We go through a canister a week at our house (4 per month). By getting them now we can save another $28 a month just on our Spark! There are 52 weeks per year and by purchasing now at $7 off per canister we can be saving ourselves $364 on just our Spark!!! Say what!?

AdvoCare Spark Cyber Monday Stick PacksSimilarly, we go through a lot of stick packs on road trips. Instead of paying for them at our 40% discount we decided to get them now while they are discounted even more knowing that we are going to buy a ton of boxes throughout the year. It just makes sense to purchase these products knowing we are going to get them anyway. It’s like purchasing super discounted groceries ahead of time knowing you’re going to eat them in the near future.

Still, always only purchase what you can afford, but also be financially wise and save yourself money on something you’re going to be purchasing anyway..

The absolute BEST deal of them all is that OTG (On The Go) is on SUPER SALE! It’s $25 off the regular price! We just loaded up on these BIG TIME before they sell out for good. Just look at that sale!!!

AdvoCare OTG On The Go Cyber Monday

Two of the other products on sale right now are the Holiday Meal Replacement Shakes and folks, let me just tell you that these are the BEST two flavors hands down! You can make SO MANY things with them including fudge, pancakes, etc. They’re $10 OFF right now and when they’re gone they won’t be back until about this time next year! Look below to see some awesome recipes with the shakes…

Protein Fudge Recipe! (ONLY 4 Ingredients)

AdvoCare Protein Fudge

Everyone that knows my wife knows that she’s an AMAZING cook! In addition to cooking incredible healthy Paleo meals she’s also made some Paleo desserts; however, she’s not the only dessert chef in this household! 😉 I’ve been eating pretty strict Paleo for the past 5 years now and any opportunity that I have to make a healthy or even “semi-healthy” dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth then I’m going to make it! My favorite healthy desserts seem to always revolve around figuring out ways to use more of our AdvoCare products and lately I’ve done just that by making “easy to make” PROTEIN FUDGE!!! This is by far the best one I’ve made yet and it only takes FOUR INGREDIENTS!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melt it in microwave… usually takes 30 seconds to completely melt it)
  • 4 scoops AdvoCare Vanilla Muscle Gain powder OR 2 AdvoCare Meal Replacement Shakes pouch (any flavor)
    • Just a heads up… the BEST protein flavor we have tried so far is the White Chocolate Peppermint. IT’S DELICIOUS!!!
  • 5 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL: “Enjoy Life” Chocolate Morsels
  • OPTIONAL: 1 scoop (use AdvoCare Muscle Gain Scoop) of PB2
  • NOTE: If you are only using 1 MRS then cut everything else in half.

STEPS:

  • Pick your protein flavor here first -> Meal Replacement Shakes (24g of PROTEIN)
  • In a small bowl mix all the above ingredients and stir until it’s beginning to come to a paste. It doesn’t take long, but you want to make sure that the coconut oil is mixed in really well.
  • Then pour the ingredients into an 8×8 glass baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  • Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until it begins to solidify.
  • Take the fudge out of the freezer and remove it from the dish by lifting the parchment paper.
  • Place the parchment paper and fudge onto a cutting board and using either a pizza cutter or a knife, cut the fudge into your desired shapes.
  • Place the cut fudge into a cover dish or Tupperware container and store in freezer until you’re ready to eat it!

Here are some photos of the fudge from us and our friends:
