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!

Protein Pancakes With ONLY 3 Ingredients

AdvoCare meal replacement shake protein pancakesI’m not the cook in our family. My wife takes the cake on that one. See what I did there? 😉 I can; however, cook up a few healthy easy-to-make things in the kitchen. One in particular is protein pancakes that I’ve had multiple times in the past couple weeks. They’re simple, quick, and don’t leave much of a mess at all. Here’s the “whatcha need” and the “how to”:

INGREDIENTS:

  2. An egg
  3. Two Tablespoons of Water

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, pour in your AdvoCare meal replacement shake, your egg, and your two tablespoons of water.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Pour into your cooking pan.
  4. Cook to desired golden or browness! 🙂

That’s it! Really… it’s that easy! Here’s a video of me making them this morning:

Green Apple Spark IS BACK!

When Green Apple Spark® was first released everyone went crazy over it (It’s what Mariah calls her “Happy Mommy Juice”). However, before we knew it the site said “Temporarily Out of Stock,” but it wasn’t why we thought. It wasn’t immediately restocked because Green Apple Spark® was coming back NEW & IMPROVED! So now, the moment we’ve been waiting for is HERE! Green Apple Spark® disappeared for a while only to come back in much smaller canisters and still in the easy to pour packets!!! It now has less volume, less calories, less carbohydrates, and still tastes EXACTLY the same and offers the identical effect of long lasting, healthy energy!  So we can get stick packs and new smaller canisters now! You mix both versions with the same amount of water and enjoy the same benefits and great taste! This will be super helpful with travel and portability.

AdvoCare green apple spark
For those of you that haven’t had Spark® yet, here’s the rundown: It sharpens mental focus, allows fast acting and long-lasting energy, contains over 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients designed to synergistically provide a healthy, balanced source of energy AND IT’S SUGAR-FREE!!! This amazing product serves as an all-in-one solution that gives you a quick boost of energy that lasts for hours.

advocare watermelon pink lemonade sparkNot only is Green Apple Spark® back in smaller canister, but Pink Lemonade and Watermelon are too!!! All the flavors are coming out in the new smaller canisters and stick packs soon and are being phased in sporadically. With it being summertime and being out in the sun, Pink Lemonade mixed with Mango Pineapple Rehydrate is my jam! I like to mix my Spark® and Rehydrate flavors just like I used to mix my Kool-aid when I was a kid. Watermelon Spark® is another favorite flavor of mine. This was yet another flavor that when first released in canisters SOLD OUT in less than an hour. I was not fast enough on the draw to score one, but now that they are back for good, you better believe we will always have this one on hand and now that they are available in the new canisters, we can enjoy the same effects and flavor with fewer calories and carbs!

advocare fruit punch sparkBUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Like I said, all flavors will be available in the strip packs soon and Green Apple was the first flavor that debuted them. Well, now they have just released Mango Strawberry and my all-time favorite flavor FRUIT PUNCH!!! Did you like the taste of fruit punch Kool-aid as a kid? Well then you’ll probably like the taste of Fruit Punch Spark®!

A lot of my former coffee drinking friends, including my wife, have completely dumped the pot of day coffee habit and now just drink Spark®.

Did I mention you can get all these amazing products at a 20-40% DISCOUNT!? It’s an absolute no-brainer because you get over $58 in retail product just for enrolling as a wholesale customer at the 20% discount without the worry of monthly fees, auto-ships, monthly minimums to keep your discount, etc. It’s much like a Sam’s Club or Costco membership except you get so much more! Knowing how much I love Spark® made it very easy for me to decide to get it at a discount.
