Fitness Karottenkuchen Riegel ohne Mehl – gesund, schnell und einfach!

Fitness Karottenkuchen ohne Meh

Da ihr ja nach mehr deutschen Rezepten gefragt habt kommt hier ein leckeres Karottenkuchen Rezept. Also eigentlich habe ich Karotten Fitness Bars daraus gemacht. Es ist wirklich so unglaublich lecker und köstlich geworden, dass ihr gar keine andere Wahl habt als es auszuprobieren! 🙂 

Backen mit Gemüse

Gerade im Herbst verwende ich sehr viel Gemüse um süße Nachspeisen zu machen. Zucchini, Süßkartoffel, Karotten und Kürbis geben den Gerichten einen ganz neuen lieblichen Geschmack. 
Hier muss man oft ein bisschen out of the box denken und einfach mal was neues probieren. Süßkartoffelbrownies sind zum Beispiel richtig lecker. Sollte ich auch mal ein Rezept dazu teilen. 🙂 Backt ihr manchmal mit Gemüse? Let me know in the comments! 

Fitness Karottenkuchen ohne Meh

Fitness Approved

Mein Karottenkuchen enthält weder Zucker, Butter noch Mehl. Also alle „bösen“ Zutaten wurden mit gesundheitsbewussteren Alternativen ausgetauscht.
Statt dem gewöhnlichen Weizenmehl verwende ich Nussmehl. Nussmehl hat viel weniger Kohlenhydrate. Natürlich dafür mehr Fett, aber auch mehr Protein. 
Die Butter habe ich durch Mandelbutter ersetzt. Auch hier habt ihr weitaus weniger Fett aber dafür eine extra Portion Protein dabei. 
Den Zucker habe ich durch meinen Küchenliebling Erythrit ersetzt. Erythrit ist ein natürlicher Zuckeralkohol und enthält keine Kalorien. 

Fitness Karottenkuchen ohne Meh

Raw & Vegan 

Bei diesem Karottenkuchen braucht ihr auch gar keine großen Kochkünste. Ihr mischt eigentlich alles nur in einer Schüssel zusammen und stellt es dann kalt. Das Rezept ist eigentlich auch vegan. Ich habe nur dieses Mal ein Protein verwendet welche auch etwas Molkeprotein zugesetzt hatte, was es dann nicht ganz vegan gemacht hat. Wenn ihr aber ein normales veganes Protein nehmt ist alles gut 🙂 

Ich war wirklich fasziniert von der Einfachheit aber auch dem Geschmack von diesem Karottenkuchen Riegeln. Es schmeckt einfach wie Weihnachten 🙂

Pumpkin Porridge – healthy and vegan

Pumpkin Porridge

Pumpkin porridge for the fall season! Sweet and creamy with just a couple ingredients, totally vegan and ready in 15 minutes!

Bye summer, hello fall

Alright guys we have to admit it. Summer is over. Bye, bye see you next year. Time to bring out those cosy socks, warm sweaters, cool leather jackets and nice boots for the colder season of the year. 

With this post I want to share one of my favorite fall recipes. You might not know this but I have a secret pumpkin obsession. During October and November almost every meal includes some kind of pumpkin. Also my breakfast. Since I absolutely looove this recipe I had to share it with you in a dedicated blog post. This pumpkin porridge is so creamy and warming. 

Spiced Pumpkin Porridge

Fitness Pumpkin Porridge Variations 

If you would like to add some extra protein this is the perfect opportunity to mix in an extra scoop of your favorite protein. I can recommend using vanilla, but chocolate is also super yummy! 
For vegan fitness versions of this pumpkin porridge I have used hemp protein and sunflower protein in the past and it was also super tasty. Only the hemp protein gave it a slightly different taste than it usually has. 

Pumpkin Porridge Toppings

Since this is a hearty and smooth fall composition I would recommend topping it with fall fruit like pears or apples.
I would also prefer slightly simmered apples or pears instead of raw ones. Like this the flavors evolve better and if you add some cinnamon and honey its just the perfect topping.
When I make it I usually use nut butter as well which adds so much extra delicious flavor to the pumpkin porridge . In the pictures you see peanut butter I put on top of the yummy bowl. I also really like cashew butter, but that didn’t came out so well on the picture 😉  
Another topping I can recommend are nuts. I used very special red nuts that my grandma has in her garden. But regular walnuts, pecans or almonds will do as well. 

Spiced Pumpkin Porridge

The ingredients

For this easy pumpkin porridge you will just need a handful of ingredients. 
It is super easy to make and will take you only 15 minutes. 
Regarding the type of pumpkin I only have made it with Hokaido. I like to use this kind of pumpkin because of the beautiful orange color. I am sure the other ones will work fine too. 
As I usually do I substituted regular refined sugar with Erythrit again to save quite a bit of calories. If you don’t have that at home you can use honey or regular sugar or Xylit.

Pumpkin Porridge

I hope you will find great use of this recipe this fall season. I can promise you its worth a try for every pumpkin lover out there!

Caramel Protein Cheesecake

Ready to taste the best protein cheesecake of your life?! With this blog post I am sharing my all time favorite recipe with you 🙂

Protein Cheesecake 

My protein cheesecake consists of some very easy ingredients and gives you the full dessert indulgence you are looking for without adding those extra calories to your hips 😉 

I am literally making this protein cheesecake once a week because it is that good. The wonderful thing about it is that you only need a couple ingredients and it is so easy and fast to make. like most of my healthy recipes. 

protein cheesecake

Macronutrients of the protein cheesecake 

First of all, I am sure you are wondering why this cake is so much better than regular cheesecake. Obviously since we are not using any sugar the taste will be a bit different than the unhealthy options you get to eat in restaurants, but the macro nutrients are sooo much better. 
A lot of people always think that in order to make fitness food you need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and buy many expensive ingredients. That is not the case at all though, especially not with my recipes. They usually never take longer than 15 minutes and the end result will be tasty and good for you at the same time. 

Calories

Did you know that a regular New York Style Cheesecake has about 450kcal per slice? For some girls that could be a regular meal for them. If you go to the Cheesecake Factory and order yourself a Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple cheesecake you might end up eating up to 1100 kcal per slice. That is crazy right. I bet you are curious how many calories this healthy protein version of a cheesecake has now?! 
So this one will have only about 250kcal per slice depending on the exact ingredients you use. That is quite a difference right?! You can save almost half of the calories you would usually eat with a normal cheesecake. 

Protein

Lets go back and compare our fitness protein cheesecake to a regular New York Style cheesecake regarding the amount of protein you will get per slice. Usually one slice only provides you with around 9 grams. However, due to adding protein powder this fitness cheesecake has up to 31 grams of protein per slice, depending on the whey you are using.

Protein Cheesecake Recipe

Alright after having told you how awesome this protein cheesecake is I hope you are totally ready to make it now. 
It is really so easy. All you need are basically two bowls. In the first one you mix all the ingredients for the filling and in the second one all the ingredients for the base.
Then you press the base into a pie form or silicon mold and pour the filling over it. After that it goes into the oven and you let it bake for about half an hour. Take it out and let it cool off completely. For the glaze you will be mixing more cream cheese with Xylit and simply cover the cheesecake with it. Finally melt some dark chocolate and sprinkle over the cake. In my recipe I used a sweetener called Yacon syrup for decoration as well, since it has the looks and subtle taste of liquid caramel. But that is not a must. 

protein cheesecake

Protein cheesecake variations

Certainly in this very specific example I made a caramel protein cheesecake. I used specifically caramel protein powder and Yacon syrup which is quite similar to caramel. However the base recipe always stays the same and you can substitute the flavors as you want. 

Here are some ideas for cheesecake variations: 

  • Strawberry protein cheesecake: You can use strawberry or vanilla whey for the filling. Use sugar-free jam to cover the surface of the cake and decorate with sliced strawberries. 
  • Peanut butter cheesecake: Add 2 tbsp of peanut butter to your filling and more peanut butter for the topping. 
  • Blueberry cheesecake: check my recipe from earlier at the beginning here!

Life Update

On another note I thought to give you a short life update in this blog post. At the moment I am super busy planning everything for my big trip starting at the end of September. I will be going to Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico.
Alberto and I will be traveling through these countries, but working at the same time. It is the first time we are doing this and are simply so excited to try it out. It is so amazing when your work is that flexible and I really just need my camera, computer, phone and internet.

However, there is still so much travel preparation to do and I am getting more and more excited every day to finally leave and escape the cold and windy Austrian fall days. 
Also, come up with a plan of how to take most of my food props with me on my travels. This will be quite the challenge, but we will see how it goes to take food pics somewhere else than at my studio at home.

Protein Blueberry Mugcake

Healthy_blueberry_mugcake

Are you looking for a quick and delicious recipe? Then this might be for you! A tasty protein blueberry mugcake with fresh blueberries, almond butter and greek yoghurt. 
So many people have the misconception that protein food doesn’t taste good. I can promise you this recipe will make you think otherwise. I love it when I surprise myself with delicious creations like this one. 

Protein Blueberry Mugcake

Protein Blueberry Mugcake

The fun thing about this recipe is that you simply put everything in a mug, stir and microwave it for a minute and voilà you have a delicious treat. 
I actually made this recipe for mothers day this May. I surprised her with breakfast in bed and this mug cake was the absolute highlight! 

Healthy_blueberry_mugcake

Ingredients

For this blueberry mug cake you need only a few basic ingredients. The only „special“ ingredient you need for this mug cake is coconut and almond flour. But in my opinion these two great flour substitutes should be part of every fitness kitchen anyways. 

Decoration

This mug cake by the way works with all kind of fruit. You can use strawberries, raspberries, peach, kiwi or mango to decorate it. For this special recipe I picked corn flowers from the field as they match the blue color of the blueberries perfectly. Flowers simply always pimp your recipe decoration. If you look very closely you can also see the little stars I cut out of bananas. If you have little cookie cutters that is a great way to add some eye-catcher effect.

I really hope you will try this recipe, as it is definitely one of my favorites. 🙂

Berry Protein Pancakes Recipe

Proteinpancakes

Protein Pancakes – what a delicious way to start the day!

Skip the flour, sugar and butter and replace it with an extra dose of healthy protein. I use this recipe so many times for weekend brunches and birthday pancake morning surprises. No matter what the occasion these protein pancakes will always make an impression and will let you enjoy a guilt-free breakfast!

Protein Pancakes

What most people don’t know that you can actually use whey protein powder for cooking and baking! I make the most wonderful recipes with it. You leave out the high calorie flour and replace it with protein powder. Perfect for protein pancakes! 

A little pancake making secret

Like most of my recipes it is very easy to make as you are basically just throwing things together in a bowl and blending it until you have a smooth dough. My one and only most important tip for you guys is to make SMALL pancakes! As the dough is simply not as strong and dense as a normal pancake dough you need to be more careful when flipping them. Making big pancakes will not work. The smaller the better 😉 I can also recommend using an empty ketchup bottle. Fill the dough inside the bottle and like this you can make perfectly round pancakes.

Protein Pancakes

Choosing your toppings

Regarding topping you can use everything your hearth desires. I like to mix greek yoghurt with a bit more protein powder and top it with fresh berries. For the berry pancakes in this blogpost I also used sugar free strawberry jam and white almond butter for topping. This obviously adds extra calories, but also makes it extra tasty 😀 

Protein Pancakes

The recipe

Now lets not keep you waiting for much longer. Here is the recipe:

How to make a unicorn nice cream bowl

 itemprop

We all see them on Instagram – the famous unicorn super smoothie bowls. It always looks like a magical creation sent from a different galaxy for you to enjoy.

Today I want to show you with this very simple blogpost how easy it is to make a unicorn bowl all by yourself. There are only a couple of simple tricks you need to know in order to make a beautiful creation and impress all your friends with it.

What I love about nice cream is that it is really so super easy to make. It takes about ten minutes and you have a delicious low fat snack. Working with frozen stuff however is also a great challenge – at least for me – as ice cream simply will start melting and you need to be fast before everything runs away.

But a little practice and soon enough you will be making the most magical bowls yourself.

So lets jump right into the recipe 🙂

This is what you will need:

3 frozen bananas 

100ml any kind of milk 

4g of blue spirulina powder

4g of pink pitaya powder 

And that is literally it. If you want you can add an extra scoop of protein, coconut flakes or a teaspoon of almond butter. There are many ways you can pimp the basic recipes.

There is only one thing you need to prepare before you can start making the recipe. You will need to cut the bananas into slices and freeze them overnight. Also, you will need four bowls. Make sure to also put them into the freezer so they will be cold once you start working with the nice cream.

Now pour the milk into the blender and add a couple of banana slices. Start mixing and keep adding more frozen bananas. You might have troubles mixing it at first. Stop the blender, use a spoon to mix up the frozen blend and start mixing again until you get a very smooth consistency.

And that is literally it. If you want you can add an extra scoop of protein, coconut flakes or a teaspoon of almond butter. There are many ways you can pimp the basic recipes.  There is only one thing you need to prepare before you can start making the recipe.

Make sure to also put them into the freezer so they will be cold once you start working with the nice cream.  Now pour the milk into the blender and add a couple of banana slices. Start mixing and keep adding more frozen bananas.

You might have troubles mixing it at first. Stop the blender, use a spoon to mix up the frozen blend and start mixing again until you get a very smooth consistency.

 

Take out the cold bowls from the freezer. Divide the nice cream into three different bowls.

Now its time to add the color. Put a teaspoon of pink pitaya powder into the first bowl and mix it well until you get a beautiful pink color.

Add the blue color to the second bowl and again stir well. Take the third bowl and add a bit of the blue and a bit of the pink powder until you will get a nice purple color.

Now you need the fourth bowl. Divide the bowl mentally up into thirds and pour in the different colors from different sides. Take a spoon and slowly swirl the colors together.

Almost done! The final step is decorating your bowl. You can use bananas, strawberries, blueberries, granola, coconut flakes, sprinkles, macarons and what ever else you can think of!

Now quickly take a pic – it melts fast. and enjoy your beautiful bowl.

If you try this recipe please send me a picture of your bowl. I would love to see your wonderful creation.
