Cookies and Cream Cookie Butter


  I’ll be honest, when I started this mini cut, I thought it was going to awful… I was so used to eating a ton of food and never really feeling hungry. I have a massive appetite and love to eat huge meals so I knew it was going to be a challenge trying to satisfy my appetite while being on poverty macros. To give you perspective, I went from 400g carbs and 65g fat per day to 200g carbs and 45g fat. ​ The trick when dieting is to trick your body into thinking it is eating the same amount of food by picking more macro friendly option aka more volumous, ​so you feel like you are eating the same amount of food! But this mini cut was a blessing in disguise because it gave me a kick in the butt to create some macro friendly recipes ​or I was going to die! 🙂 So In this post, I am going to cover my 5 recipes (with some bonus variations 🙂 that I’ve created that have allowed me to flourish while on these poverty macros and make this mini cut a piece of cake…. That was punny So here are the recipes I will cover:
  • ​4 Super Easy High Protein Frosting Recipes
  • Diet Saving Jello Protein Cheesecake
  • Low Calorie Crunch Wrap Burger
  • Salad Gainz
  • 3 Easy Low Calorie Protein Cookie Butter Recipes

RECIPE #1: 4 Super Easy High Protein Frosting Recipes

I needed to find a recipe that was portable, high volume, macro friendly and most importantly, was sweet to have for my first meal of the day. I started thinking of my options and knew I wanted to use my new PEScience protein powder (honestly the best protein powder I have ever tasted… literally not even close) to make a tasty creation. So I thought of my options for the base of the recipe and knew that chickpeas would be a great base because of my previous recipe for cookie dough. So if I wanted for it to be higher volume, I knew I rice cake are an amazing option to make like you’re eating more!
