After spotting the secret stash of Nutella in the pantry (yes... there is Nutella in our pantry. But I PROMISE, I have only opened it once to dip in pretzels :). And it has stayed out of my hands ever since... lord knows how much the boys have partaked in the jar of Nutella!).... Anyways so he saw the Nutella and there went the light bulb. So there was born on Saturday December 8th at 4:30 pm.... Protein Power Butter.
5 tablespoons of Peanut Butter or Almond butter
1 heaping scoops of Chocolate whey protein
1/2 tablespoon of Golden Flax Seed
1. In a large bowl, pour in your softened peanut butter or almond butter. We used almond butter because it tends to be runnier and easier to mix without having to heat it up.
2. Pour in your whey protein and Flax Seed and mix thoroughly.
3. Place in a resealable container and save in the refrigerator for all week long.
This should make enough for your household all week for toast, bananas, oatmeal, etc. Its even good for a snack to dip in pretzels.
Today I made some homemade Protein Banana Bread that Jeff just had to try it with... Yummmmm!!!
Check out the excitement in his face.... Priceless!
