Yesterday was full of firsts for me – yes that title is correct – I have never tried a banana or coffee – and I tried both yesterday for the first time. Last week when my care package from Garden of Life arrived I was excited for a refill of my RawFit and when I saw the Marley Coffee raw Protein I was a little unsure of how it would taste so it sat in the cupboard for a week – I’m regretting that now! There’s a recipe waiting for you at the end of the post!
For my snack yesterday I wanted something with fewer calories but lots of protein. It was time to try the Marley Coffee protein. As you can see from the photo above this is a high quality protein, it’s verified Non-GMO, Organic, and Gluten/Dairy/Soy Free – How can you go wrong! If you’re going to supplement this is a must try. I’m a big fan of protein shakes and the like as I don’t seem to get enough protein in with out them.
I love that most of the ingredients are sprouted – how awesome it that. The Marley Coffee is exclusively for Whole Foods so on your next trip make aure you give this a shot. As for the flavor, it’s not a strong coffee taste which I loved and would be perfect if you make protein coffee lattes or whatnot. The smothie above was organic almond milk, spinach, blueberries, cashew butter and the Marley Coffee. Garden of Life is my #1 choice for protein – I’ve yet to find anything better and I doubt this kind of quality can be beat. If you’d like further endorsement, check out my pal Zach and what he has to sayabout it.
Okay, okay so you want the baking goodies! I made these last night and was sure I wouldn’t eat them because they have banana in them and I can’t stand banana. I was wrong. I ate 3. Rob (my trainer) is lucky his were wrapped up already otherwise I may have kept them!
This recipe is super simple and take only about 20 miutes total. It makes 16 servings (or however many you choose).
- 2 Scoops Marley Coffee Protein
- 1 Banana
- 1/4 C Organic Coconut Sugar
- 2 Cups Rolled Oats (organic/wheat free)
- 8 Tbsp Pure Pumpkin
- 1 1/2 Tbsp of Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
Mash all ingredients together and spread into a metal baking dish. Spread it out level with a fork. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let cool then cut into 16 slices. The work out to about 70cal and 3.5g of protein per piece. Try not to eat the entire batch!
