This quick and easy, high protein snack tastes just like Almond Joy Cheesecake, but it’s packed with protein and is super healthy!
Is there a food in your life that you hated when you were a kid, but now you can’t stop eating?
For me, it’s coconut.
I just can’t stop eating it. I seriously wonder about the brain of my child-self.
I mean, how can a sane person not enjoy the flaky, tropically goodness of this stuff?
Then again, we all know that “completely and totally sane” isn’t really a descriptor for my personality…
A while back (Like when this blog was birthed) I shared with ya’ll my MOST FAVORITE bedtime snack recipe: the Chocolate Peanut Butter “Cheesecake.”
And, you know what? Since then, I have still eaten it every single night.
So, let’s do math (DON’T RUN AWAY. Math that involves nut butter = acceptable.)
I have been eating it for 3 years. That’s 1095 days.
Yeah, that recipe has been tested over 1000 times. I can guarantee you that it works. I KNOW.
HOW-EV-ER, Mr. FFF thinks that my diet is, generally, pretty boring. Cookie dough overnight oats for breakfast every day. “Cheesecake” for snack every night. What can I say? I am a stuck in my ways grannie (remember we talked about how I am practically fossilized back with that chicken kebab recipe)
Anyway. He was all “you should eat something different before bed tonight.”
And part with my beloved? NO WAY.
So, I pulled a Jedi mind trick on him…and made the same thing, I just switched the nut butters and added some coconut (<3)
Totally pulled the wool (where does that saying come from? Who wears wool? I don’t understand) over his eyes guys.
The huberoni was all proud of me for being “out there” and “living on the edge” with my usual boring food choices.
All the while, I ate my “cheesecake” and laughed to myself.
It sounded like this: MUAHAHAHA. I win.
Read above mentioned “completely and totally sane” isn’t a descriptor of my personality.
P.s Change that involves things that taste like cheesecake and an Almond Joy bar, WITH 30g of protein?
I could get into it.
