Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

GUYS.. Pay attention. You HAVE to make these. Like NOW. Or tomorrow at least. And then post it on instagram, tag @cait508 and make my mouth water all over again. I tasted a little bit of it and then immediately portioned it out for myself into ziploc bags so I didn't eat the entire 8x8 pan size of it. It tastes like protein almond joy heaven. Anyways... Here's the recipe.

1 mashed banana
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3 scoop chocolate protein
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
2 tbsp chia seed
1/4 cup almond butter
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut water
1/2 tsp almond extract (I used 1 tsp when I made mine, but it is a STRONG flavor, so make sure you like it first before you go all crazy like me)

Put foil into 8x8 baking dish. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. It will be very moist and sticky. Press into the prepared baking dish. Cover with more aluminum foil. Place in freezer for 2-3 hours. Cut into desired size squares and try not to eat them all in one day. :D

Turkey Stuffed Zucchini

I've seen like a million posts floating around Pinterest that gave me the idea for this one. I made this ground turkey mixture all the time to eat throughout the week. So I figured for dinner, I'd just shove it in some hollowed out zucchini and BOOM! dinner is SERVED.

2 zucchinis
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves, minced
1 lb ground turkey breast
8 oz tomato sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place aluminium foil on baking sheet.

Wash zucchini, chop off ends, cut in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, hollow out middle of zucchini. Set on baking sheet.

In a large skillet, sautee onions and green peppers in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add in cloves of garlic and ground turkey breast. Season with pepper, basil and oregano. Cook until turkey breast is fully browned. Add in tomato sauce and red pepper flakes.

Spoon mixture into hollowed zucchinis. Cook 25-30 minutes until zucchini is fork tender.
