Cranberry Almond Protein Bars

6 tbs Blue Agave syrup
2 tbs vanilla
4 cups oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup almond meal
1 cup flax seed
2 tbs sunflower seeds
4 tbs cranberries
½ cup almonds
3 scoops protein powder

Combine wet ingredients.  Add dry ingredients.  Cook at 350o for 17 minutes.  Cut into bars while warm.

French Silk Pie

I’ve given you the pie crust recipe, now you need something to put in it.  This is seriously sweet, but how can you go wrong with sugar, butter, eggs and chocolate.

1 cup sugar
¾ cup butter
3 squares (3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled)
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 9” baked pie crust

In a small mixer bowl cream sugar and butter about 4 minutes or till fluffy. Stir in cooled chocolate and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed of mixer after each addition and scraping side of bowl constantly. You will see the mixture get lighter after each additional egg. You want a very smooth/silky feel to the mixture. Turn into baked pie crust. Chill several hours or overnight until set.
