Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

   My craving for sweets tends to run rampant on my rest days (when my food needs to be low carb).  Rather than wrecking my macros, I often fit one or two flourless peanut butter and jelly cookies into my rest day meals. It’s a small treat that works wonders on satisfying my (and hopefully, yours!) sweet tooth. 

Makes 16 cookies

Macros per cookie: 8g Protein/Fat 8g/ Carbs 3g/Fiber 2g/Cal 130

Total Macros 120g protein/ Fat 122g/ Carbs 54g/Fiber 26g/Calories 2082

Quest Bar Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Parfait

Macros for Whole Parfait: Protein 85g/Fat 17g/ Carbs 72g/Fiber 18g/Calories 739

I recently tried out Quest Nutrition’s newest protein bar and I have to admit that they really nailed the cookies and cream flavor. There are actual pieces of chocolate cookie crumbles and cream chunks in each bar! While the bar is delicious on its own, I went the extra mile made it into a parfait made from liquid cheesecake (a gooey custardy spreadable cheesecake) and dark chocolate pudding! The liquid cheesecake takes about 20 minutes to make and then it needs to be chilled, so plan accordingly!

Rest day Green Tea Cheescake (Chiizukeiki)

Green Tea Cheesecake

Adapted from To Food With Love

I received a request through the Facebook fan page for Japanese cheesecake. I was quite surprised to learn that it is basically a hybrid of a soufflé/cheesecake/poundcake! I tweaked the recipe to be more rest day friendly with full fat cream cheese but you can easily swap it with low fat/non fat cream cheese.

Macros for whole cake: P 87g/Fat 90g/Carbs 56g/ Calories 1418

If cut into 8 equal slices: P11g/F 11g/C 7g/Cal 177
