WIAW: PB&J + pumpkin cream cheese chocolate cups

Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats
I've eyed some creative peanut butter cup recipes around the web and decided to make my own last night. It's a simple and easy way to let out the sometimes baker in me, without actually baking.

I mixed peanut butter, protein powder, and nutritional yeast then lined it with Crofter's rapsberry spread for a PB&J chocolate cup.

Look at those raspberry seeds!

I also made a pumpkin "cream cheese" chocolate cup by mixing pumpkin and Laughing Cow wedges.

This morning, I had some of a PB&J chocolate cup and a pumpkin amazeball before completing Bob Harper's Body Rev Cardio Conditioning workout. This is the toughest exercise DVD I have (though I don't have Insanity or P90X).

Nope, this wasn't breakfast. This was dinner because I had a late lunch and didn't want meat for dinner - it's hard for me to digest. Instead, I made oatmeal protein pancakes with egg whites, cottage cheese, and oat flour, all of which are good foods for sleeping.

Do you eat breakfast for dinner?
Do you crave a different dinner if you have a late lunch?


  1. i must confess some days a bowl of cereal is my dinner

    if i have a late lunch i always have a lighter dinner as im.not that hungry so ill have soup or couscous and veggie or beans on toast

  2. Sometimes breakfast just makes for a better dinner, so of course! I was actually thinking tonight may be an omelet kinda day.

  3. If I have a late lunch, I always want breakfast for dinner! Don't know why!
