Maple Apple Crisp

Dessert, Recipes

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I personally love cooking and hosting for Thanksgiving but if I am not hosting or cooking, I always ask to bring my Apple Crisp or make the Turkey. Most people like Apple Crisp and it’s a pretty traditional dessert for the holidays, but it can be pretty unmemorable if you don’t spice it up! Next time you make Apple Crisp, substitute a fourth of the white sugar with Vermont Maple Syrup and use all different apples instead of just one kind. The different apples will have slightly different textures and flavor, which makes a relatively basic dish a bit more memorable.

INGREDIENTS  

Filling

  • 10 Cups Sliced Apples (Select all different types) Peeled
  • ¾ Cup White Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour

Crisp

  • 1 Cup Old Fashion Cooking Oats (Quick Oats or Half and Half will work as well)
  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar Packed
  • ¼ Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ Cup Melted Butter Salted
  • ⅛ Tsp Ground Cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the filling ingredients together: sliced apples, white sugar, flour, cinnamon, maple syrup and water. Once mixed well and sugar is slightly dissolved, pour into a 9×13 inch pan. NOTE: You can use a slightly smaller or larger pan. However, if you use a smaller pan it will be thicker and you may need to cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  • Combine crisp ingredients in a bowl and mix using a large fork. Combine until crumble starts to form into small balls.
  • Place in oven on the middle rack, bake at 350°F for 50 minutes

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Dessert, Recipes

It’s fall y’all and I am ready to do all the basic fall things like eat and drink everything pumpkin! #PSL4Life This recipe takes a semi traditional pumpkin bread and spices it up by adding two layers of a creamy pumpkin spice filling. I am guilty of eating the entire batch in one day, that’s how good it is.

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1¼ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup Butter (unsalted) softened
  • ⅓ cup Honey
  • ½ cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ½ cup Organic Pumpkin Puree

“Pumpkin Pie” Swirl

  • 5 oz Cream Cheese
  • 5 tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Almond Milk
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • ½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Pre-heat oven to 325°F and place rack in the middle of oven.
  • Spray mini bread pan with non-stick baking spray or lightly butter and flour the pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all bread ingredients and mix until fully combined and no chunks are remaining.
  • In a small mixing bowl, add cubed cream cheese, almond milk and egg yolk. Mix until soft and creamy. An electric mixer works best for this step.
  • Once soft and creamy, slowly mix in the powdered sugar and pumpkin spice. Whip until thick and creamy.
  • Spoon batter into pan until ¼ full. Add one tsp of pumpkin pie swirl and gently spread it over the bread batter. Spoon more bread batter on top until it is between ½-⅔ full.
  • Add another tsp of pumpkin pie filling and use a tooth pick to swirl the filling on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes for soft and moist bread. Bake for 25 minutes for a drier bread. I recommend 20 minutes if you don’t plan on eating while hot. This cooks it enough to be safe to eat but allows it to stay moist for days after.
  • Once done, let cook for about 10 minutes and then gently remove from baking sheet and finish cooling on cooling rack. Note: If you try to remove the bread while hot, you may burn yourself or rip the bread. If you MUST do this, gently tip the tray on the side to roll the bread out of the sheet without breaking it.

Peanut Butter CC Protein Balls

Appetizers, Snacks & Sides, Recipes

These taste like a combination of Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Cookies. YUM!

Lets talk about how to cook with protein powder! The key to using protein in your recipes is picking a protein that is 1) high quality and 2) that you enjoy the taste of. No matter what anyone says, if you don’t like the taste of the protein in a shake, you probably won’t like it in a recipe. Not all protein is created the same either, some are more chalky, some have less flavor etc. In order for these to taste the best, choose the protein you enjoy the most.

This recipe creates 11-12 balls which is about 208 calories per ball. 16.4g of Carbs 17.5g Fat and 11.6g of Protein when using 2 scoops of protein powder. Increase the protein by choosing a high protein Peanut Butter.

INGREDIENTS  

  • ¾ Cup Almond Flour
  • ½ Cup Quick Oats
  • 1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 3-4 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey
  • ¼ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Scoop Protein Powder (Vanilla)
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • Water (only if batter is too dry to stick together)

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Combine all ingredients in a mixer until dough is sticky and bunching together.
  • Make into 1-inch balls (should make 11-12 balls). If the dough is not sticking together, add 1 tbsp. of water at a time while mixing until batter is a sticky, but firm, consistency.
