If you’re just checking in after a great weekend, here’s what you might have missed:

Pumpkin Bread Protein Oats and a Mocha to calm pre-race jitters!

I got prepped for my 10-miler


And I ran an awesome 10 mile race in Chicago!

Today’s post has some delicious treats just for you all. But you have to wait, workout first!

After my 10 mile race on Saturday, I knew some hot yoga would be perfect to stretch out my legs. I had bought a Groupon to Bikram Yoga River North Chicago for 20 classes, and finally decided to give it a go! I’d heard a lot about Bikram being really intense, so I was very nervous!

I woke up starving so I had to eat something before class. I put some peanut butter and Trader Joe’s Cranberry Apple Butter on a rice cake, and added slices from half a banana.

I took the bus down to the studio and thought I was in the wrong place at first, it was in a really nice office building! The people there were so nice and made sure that I knew what to expect and how the class would go. I set up my mat and towel, scared, but ready!

Turns out, Bikram yoga was basically a longer version of the classes I had been taking at Core Power Yoga. I knew all the moves, we just spent more time on them! I loved the instructor and can’t wait to go back!

Now, it’s time for what you’ve all been waiting for. Remember last week when I tried out the Pumpkin Protein Pizookie from My Food N Fitness Diaries?

Well, I spent the rest of the week hard at work, coming up with my own recipes and variations on the pizookie/microwavable cupcake. I never really understood the pizookie thing, so these are cupcakes. Get ready.

Chocolate Chip Banana Protein Cupcake

photo (19)


1 T flour (I used gluten free baking flour or garbanzo bean flour)

1 T protein powder (I use Sunwarrior; also you can use a whole scoop for a larger cupcake)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 packet stevia

1/4 smashed banana

1 T applesauce

1 + 1/2 T milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

1/4 tsp vanilla

chocolate chips


Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the liquid ingredients (including banana) but NOT the milk. Add 1 T of milk and mix, if you need more, then add more. It should be somewhat liquidy. Microwave for 30-35 seconds if you’re only doing 1 T, microwave for 40 seconds for a scoop of powder. Also, I use these times because I like it a little undercooked. Add 5-10 seconds if you want it to be more “baked”.

Next up? Chocolate time.

Chocolate Mousse Protein Cupcake


1 T flour

1 scoop  protein powder (since there is no banana, the whole scoop adds more volume)

1 tsp cocoa powder (use more if you like it more chocolaty)

1 packet stevia

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 T applesauce

1 + 1/2 T Milk (I used unsweetened chocolate almond milk)


Same as above, but no banana involved. Also, this one is REALLY good under-cooked, because it’s more mousse-like.

Last but not least, this one was inspired by my Blueberry Muffin Protein Oatmeal:

Blueberry Protein Cupcake


1 T flour

1 scoop protein powder

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 packet stevia

1/4 tsp vanilla

1 T applesauce

1 + 1/2 T milk



Same as the Chocolate Chip Protein cupcake!

I am OBSESSED with these right now! They are so delicious and packed full of protein!


Let me know if you try any and like them, or if you have any problems with the recipe working. Also let me know if you have any flavors you’d like to see!

Have you ever tried Bikram, or any other kind of yoga?
