Also made a batch of vegan protein bars for work afternoon snack/pre workout. Recipe is chubby hubby protein bars by Desserts with benefits, seemed quite dry but tasted OK so fingers crossed the fridge time sorts out the texture! For any good dairy free protein bar recipes?? #vegan #veganprotein #proteinbars #foodprep #healthysnacks #chubbyhubby #peanutbutter #pb&chocolate #dessertswithbenefits #cleaneating

Today I made some gluten free/sugar free (just how I like it) cupcakes from dessertswithbenefits

They were her bittersweet chocolate quinoa cupcakes (minus the chocolate frosting). They’re pretty good! I made the quinoa and brown rice flour myself in a blender and I think I might have left it a little to coarse and I left out the stevia extract (THE ONLY SWEETENER IN THE RECIPE) because I don’t have any, but luckily on a whim I also added some semisweet mini chocolate chips which made them just sweet enough, but overall due to my mistakes I’m sure they were a little more muffiny than cupcakey but still super yummy, I love Jessica. 

I’m going to bring them to Tyler and our friend Syma who takes photos tonight. I’ll let you know what they think!

This is Jessica’s photo, not mine, but mine looked just as yummy minus the frosting, plus some chocolate chips.

here’s the recipe



  • 7g (1 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Soy Milk
  • 82g (1/3 cup) 100% Pure Pumpkin Puree, canned
  • ¾ tsp Apple Pie Spice (or cinnamon)
  • 4 packets Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/16 tsp Salt
  • 40g (1/3 cup) Buckwheat Flour
  • 1 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder


  1. Spray a 4" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flax and soy milk.
  3. Stir in the pumpkin, apple pie spice, truvia and salt.
  4. Stir in the buckwheat flour, then stir in the baking powder.
  5. Scoop batter into prepared dish and microwave for 5 minutes, or until the surface springs back when tapped.
  6. Let cool slightly, flip over onto a plate (or eat it right out of the dish) and enjoy!
