Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I feel as if I have been neglecting this blog for far too long! I promise to be better! I have been sick for over a week now but finally getting over it and hopefully starting up my workout routine again tomorrow! I seriously CANNOT wait!!! This past weekend was a very low key one for me as I was diagnosed with bronchitis, a double ear infection, a sinus infection, and a throat infection! I basically isolated myself to my home other than going out to eat just to get out and get some fresh air. However, I really did enjoy relaxing at home and was finally able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a long while...watch the five hour BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice" with my boyfriend! I prepared quite a spread for us...as it was five hours long and we would definitely need our sustenance!
In the bottom left corner, you will see my lovely pumpkin biscuits that I baked! These biscuits came out so fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, and had a scone-like feel! Not only are they delicious, but they are low calorie, high in vitamin A, and are a good protein and fiber source! Here is my recipe for my Pumpkin Biscuits!
Makes 11-12 biscuits (depending on how big you make them)
2/3 cup pancake and baking mix (GF or multigrain)
1/2 cup oats
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 T coconut flour
1/4 cup almond flour (or additional scoop of protein powder)
1 whole egg
2 T brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin
16-18 packets stevia
1-2 t pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon (depending on your preference!
The method is pretty simple...as always! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of your ingredients together. The mix will be a drop batter type of consistency, but will hold together to be able to form biscuits on a baking sheet. Line your baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray. Make 11-12 small biscuits with the batter, then bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from one of the center biscuits!
Then...enjoy!! These make a perfect dessert or movie snack, but also served well as my breakfast the next day, or while enjoying afternoon tea with my Mama!
This recipe is sooooo easy and delicious; I really hope you all get to try it! They perfectly complemented our lovely british film and were the tastiest, healthy treat!
