Popcorn Chicken & Cinnamon Sugar Sweet Potato Fries

Don't get stuck eating the same, boring meals every day. Don't be afraid to try new recipes & ideas! ;)


For the chicken -
1lb chicken breast tenderloins
1 egg
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (blended into oat flour)
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper
1/2 tsp cumin

For the fries -
1 large sweet potato (cut into fry shapes)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
4 tsp stevia
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Beat egg in a bowl and coat chicken pieces in the egg wash. Put chicken, oat flour, flaxseed meal & spices in a ziplock bag and shake well until chicken is evenly coated.

Next, put the fries in a ziplock bag with the coconut oil, cinnamon & stevia and shake well and make sure fries are coated well.

Put fries & chicken on separate foil lined baking sheets. Put them both in the oven and bake for about 30-45 minutes or until chicken is crispy and fries are done.

ENJOY! :-)

Banana Hulk Protein Pancakes

Ever since I got my NutriBullet for Christmas, I have been creating many different spinach protein pancakes! Here is one of my simplest recipes. Although they contain over a cup of greens, they do not have a spinach taste at all. :)

1.5 cups raw spinach leaves
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp stevia
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 banana
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled
1/4 cup egg whites
1/8 cup unsweetened almond milk

Preheat a skillet or griddle and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Blend all ingredients together in a blender (or Nutribullet!). Cook like you would normally cook pancakes. I top this pancake with sugar free maple syrup or plain greek yogurt and cooked blackberries.

Makes 1 serving.
