Double Whammy

Why share one recipe with you... when I can share two?!

Happy Monday everyone.  I don't know about you, but I could have definitely used another day off to recover from Saturday's craziness.  Do I get a relaxing Saturday this week you may ask?  Oh no.  My 10K run at the Morton Pumpkin Festival is bright and early this Saturday.  Though, I am stoked to run with one of my WW buddies and to get my free pumpkin donut when I finish.

On to the recipes!

#1: Pumpkin Energy Bites

Servings: 20-22
WW Points/Serving: 1
1 Cookie/serving

Preheat oven: 375

2 mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup almond milk
2 cups old fashioned oats (or oat flour)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 nutmeg
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips**

Combine bananas, pumpkin, milk, and vanilla in a bowl.  I used my kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment.  Mix until well combined.  Add oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate chips.

Spray your cookie sheet with cooking spray (olive oil misto). Use a small ice cream scoop to measure out your cookies.  You can place them pretty close together on your cookie sheet.  They don't spread when they bake.

Bake 20-25 minutes.

(**If you want more chocolate, this recipe with 1/2 cup mini choc chips would make the cookies 2 points a piece.)

#2: Chocolate PB Protein Shake

Serves: 1
WW Points: 9

1 frozen banana
1 handful of spinach
3/4 cup coconut milk (I used So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk now that I'm not on Whole30)
1 scoop chocolate Designer Whey protein powder
2 tbsp peanut butter

Combine in a blender and blend until smooth.


  1. Mmmmm. I'm going to make the energy bites!!!

    1. I had a few before my swim! They're pretty tasty!
