Protein Sprinkle Donuts + Vanilla Glaze

Ever have FOMO when someone is eating something you really want to indulge in but your trying to be good? It can happen at family gatherings, office parties or when you walk outside of your gym after a great workout and smell bagels from the bagel shop next door. Le sigh, we are guilty of it. But why not be able to enjoy without all of the self loathing? I'll be honest, I saw about five delicious donut posts this morning on Instagram and I instantly was craving a sugary treat. We recently bought a donut pan and I've been wanting to try it out and see what we could create. So, we made some protein donuts! Here's what you'll need: 

Ingredients (yields 6 donuts)
2 c of Kodiak Cakes mix
1/2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 cup water
1 egg
3 tbsp of sweetener of choice (we used Stevia)
1 tsp vanilla extract

The Glaze 
1/2 c of confectioner sugar
1 tsp of vanilla 
1/3 c of unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
Sprinkles for topping 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all donut ingredients together in a bowl. The consistency will be a bit light and airy. Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag to pipe batter into the sprayed donut tin. If you do not have a pastry bag go ahead and use a ziplock bag and cut the tip. Cut one corner of the bag so you can easily squeeze it into a donut pan. Shake your tin to even out the batter. Bake for 7 minutes. Next, mix together glaze ingredients. The consistency should be right in the middle of thick and runny. After your donuts have cooled, dip the tops of your sweet streets into the glaze and then into your sprinkles (or whatever topic you prefer!) Enjoy for breakfast, dessert or whenever you'd like :)

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We love using the air fryer for "frying" up some of our favorite dishes. From chicken parmesan to veggie fries and most recently bagels and empanadas, the options are endless. So we decided to try out wings this time around. It was the perfect meal for some Sunday football enjoyment. We also roasted up some crispy brussel sprouts with bacon and a cranberry balsamic drizzle for a complete meal. Here's everything you'll need for this dish: 

Ingredients (for wings) 1 lb of chicken wings or drumsticks  1 c of nonfat greek yogurt  3 tbsp of paprika  1 tbsp of oregano  1 tsp salt  1 tsp pepper  Juice of 1/2 a lemon  1 c of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour  1 c of hot wing sauce (Frank's or your favorite hot sauce)
Directions Mix together yogurt and lemon juice with all seasonings and spoon into a ziplock bag. Add chicken and let marinate for at least 4 hours. In a flat plate evenly spread out your seasoned flour and dredge your wings in both sides. Make sure to preheat your air frye…

Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 

Ingredients 3 cups of Kodiak Mix  1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt 1 tsp vanilla extract  1 tsp of baking powder  3 eggs, beaten  4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened  1/3 cup of brown sugar  3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk  3 tbsp of lemon zest  1/8 cup of lemon juice 
Ingredients (glaze) 1/2…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 

Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
