On a Quest for Good Protein Bars?

I’ve been thinking about trying out one of the bazillion recipes out there for copycat Quest bars, and in the end…wouldn’t you know it…I kinda did my own thang!

But the results were pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself!

I actually made 2 batches: one chocolate chip cookie dough, and one chocolate brownie batter!

And I’ll show you how I did it, so that you can try it, and/or change it to your tastes, TOO!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 scoops of your favorite vanilla protein powder (about 1/3 cup a scoop) – I used Beachbody whey.  (I’m thinking you could use Shakeology for these too! For some extra nutrients!)
  • ¼ cup natural nut or seed butter of choice (smooth, not crunchy) – I used peanut for this batch.
  • 1/3 (I used Stevia, less if you like – feel free to sub honey, agave, etc…adjust water accordingly)
  • 2-5 tbsp. water (add 1 T. at a time, add more or less as needed)
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • optional extras: I added 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips for my chocolate chip cookie dough batch, and 2 T. cocoa powder for my brownie batter batch. Experiment adding other fun ingredients like cinnamon, vanilla, dried fruit, etc…

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the protein powder, oat flour, nut butter and sweetener together. Add quest5water 1 Tablespoon at a time – If using Stevia (dry sweetener) you’ll need more water than if using honey or agave.
  • Stir together – get your hand in there to smoosh it all together until you can form a ball with no little bits coming out.
  • Scoop out the dough onto a piece of wax paper and shape into a rectangle.
  • Cut into 5 bars and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes until firm.
  • ENJOY!

What is Coaching? 3 Day Sneak Peek – YOLO

If you had told me 2 1/2 years ago that I would spend the afternoon taking professional fitness pictures with a friend, I would have died laughing…like really…fer real. DEAD from laughter!

YOLO

 

Instead, there I was, with a fellow coach-friend, who was also pinching herself and wondering how she came to be standing in front of a camera, dumbbell in hand, promoting her fitness business.

Sometimes our craziest ideas turn into our defining moments!

Had I not decided to sign up as a coach around 2.5 years ago, not only would I not have been planking poolside, but I would be at LEAST 25 pounds overweight, self-conscious, uncomfortable, depressed and not blessed by the many many amazing people that I have met through this business.

I joined for selfish reasons. I wanted the discount. I was a huge fan of Beachbody products and programsShakeology_discount already, and I just wanted to save some $$ on Shakeology. But then I fell in love with helping other people find the same kind of success that I was experiencing! And SOMEBODY PINCH ME – because I get PAID to do this! As much, if not more than I did as a full-time teacher; working part-time hours, from home or wherever I happen to be each day: chillin’ poolside, under a blankie on the couch with my kids…

little_piggiesI get to be home with my kids!…instead of spending my days with other people’s kids. And that is worth MORE than anything to me!

I can go on family vacations for as long as I want and not have to worry about begging some jerky boss for time off – I am my OWN boss! Not only that…but the money I make is making it possible for us to do MORE travelling, take vacations we wouldn’t have been able to afford before, save money for college educations (x4!), and buy a new family vehicle!

If you’ve ever thought about doing this, or just want to know more…stop wondering! Join me for my upcoming 3 Day Sneak Peek! Hear my story, learn the basics and ask ANY questions you have!

No commitments.

NO pressure!Sneak_peek

The group will start on Monday, May 18. I’ll just share my story, explain the ‘basics’ of the business and answer ANY questions you might have!

Like….

 

  • How much time does it take?
  • Do you have to be a fitness professional?
  • Do you have to be a nutritionist?
  • Do you have to be in top physical condition?
  • How much money do you make?
  • How will I learn WHAT to do and HOW to do it?

Are you curious? Just a little? My biggest regret is that I didn’t start coaching sooner. I didn’t understand it, because I didn’t take the time to learn about it. That’s why I want to let you take a little peek, and decide if this is something that you might enjoy, too! Learn at your pace, be a fly on the wall…whatever floats your boat! 🙂 

YOLO‬!
