Fruit Protein Pizza

image

I’ve seen a lot of these fruit “pizza’s” posted and finally got around to making one. I failed a couple times but this time it hit the spot! I use LeanFit 100% whey protein in both the crust and the greek yogurt topping, a great product that I use everyday! The raspberries, strawberries and 1 lone ripe blueberry come freshly picked from my garden this morning! My raspberry bush is a super producer this year; I got over 2 cups this morning and will get that tomorrow too! 🍇

Potato Pancakes

It’s been quite a while since I’ve made potato pancakes … like 8-10 years I would say! I had a craving for them today and whipped up these yummy cakes. Topped mine with plain 0% greek yogurt, green onions and a piece of double smoked Glenwood Meats bacon.

Recipe:

Potato Pancakes

Ingredients:

•3 medium russet potatoes, peeled and shredded
•1/2 Cup chopped onion
•2 Eggs
•2 Tbsp oat flour
•1/4 tsp baking powder
•1/2 tsp onion powder
•1/2 tsp pink salt
•1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
•1/4 Cup coconut oil
•Toppings as desired

Directions:

Peel and shred potatoes (I used my food processor with the shred blade). Pat potatoes dry with paper towel, place in large bowl with chopped onion. Combine eggs, flour, baking powder and seasonings in separate bowl then add to potatoes and mix together with fork until well incorporated. Preheat pan with coconut oil over medium heat. Dollop potatoes (about fist sized) onto hot pan and press down with fork, cook for about 3-5min per side or until nicely browned. Place on paper towel to soak up grease and repeat with remaining batter. Serve with plain greek yogurt or sour cream, bacon bits and scallions or whatever you prefer. Serves 3-4.

Blackberry Banana Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

With all the blackberries growing I have to come up with ideas to use them in my cooking, so today I made a baked oatmeal. This will serve a large family or leftovers for the week.

Layer bottom of dish with fruit.

image

Pour oat mixture over fruit and top with more fruit and sprinkle with coconut.

•1-3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
•1 whole egg
•2 egg whites or 1/4 cup

Bottom and topping:
•2 Cups blackberries
•1 ripe banana, sliced
•6 strawberries, chopped (optional – I had some really ripe ones I decided to throw in)

First make sure your bananas are super ripe!

Mash those bananas, 3 medium size bananas should give you about 1-1/2 cups mashed.

Mix all ingredients together.

Pour into dishes.
