Apple Pie Protein Shake/Mock Ice Cream

1 Scoop Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Essence Flavor Protein Powder
2 Tbsp Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip
1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (would normally use apple pie spice but this is what I had on hand)
5-7 large Ice Cubes
1-1.5 tsp Great Value Apple Drink Mix
1/4 tsp Glucomannan Powder
1/2 cup water

Optional: 1 Tbsp Chopped Pecans for topping. My counts do include the pecans.

Mix everything in a blender and top with pecans. I put mine in a bowl so it would be more like ice cream. Normally I would use Almond Milk as my base but I didn't have any. It came out really good because the protein powder and WF dip thickened it up and you really couldn't tell there was water as a base.

Mini Bagels

Ok. I made some mini "bagel" type things of course using marcea's glucc/parm roll method.

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1tbsp glucomannan powder
1tsp baking powder
1 scoop (1/3 cup) protein powder (I use vanilla syntrax nectar)

Mix eggs and baking powder well. Slowly add in glucc while mixing until dough forms "waves". Then add protein powder. I added a bit of water to thin it out until it was a little thinner than funnel cake batter. Spray mini bundt pans, bagel, or doughnut pans and barely cover the bottom all the way around. A couple teaspoons maybe. Bake for about 20 min.

I got 14 of them with 28 calories, 0.11g carbs, no fiber.

Zucchini Bread Muffins










Ingredients:

3 servings syntrax (3 scoops vanilla syntrax protein powder)
4 servings flax meal(1/2 cup)
3 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large zucchini, grated
1/2 C chopped pecans
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp glucomannan powder
1/2 cup vanilla DaVincis (sugar free)
1/2 cup water (to thin out batter)

Crack the eggs in a bowl, and with a mixer, slowly add in 1/2 tsp of the glucomannan powder at a time, mix very well and the eggs should thicken up. Next add the vanilla, zucchini, pecans, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and DaVincis and mix well. Add the flax meal and protein powder and start mixing. The batter will be very dry at this point, and slowly add in the water while mixing to loosen it up until it is the consistency of regular cupcake batter.

Use an ice cream scoop to evenly distribute in muffin papers, should make 18, and bake for 30 minutes at *350 (check after 20 minutes because ovens vary.)
