Salted Caramel Protein Mini-Cheesecakes

Aaaaand here we are with another cheesecake recipe on Bariatric Foodie. Predictable, right? Ok, ok I’ll admit over the years I can be accused of being a bit cheesecake obsessed. But that’s mainly because I think they are the post-op dessert. I mean, think about it. The main ingredient is cream cheese. Now yes, that can be fatty, but you …

Bariatric Foodie’s No-Flour, Low-Sugar Cookie Collection

Ah, cookies. They are a hallmark of the holidays. And as a post-op we spend a lot of time trying to avoid them, am I right? I actually respect that a lot. Cookies are tricky territory. They are small. Unassuming. There doesn’t seem to be much harm in having just one little cookie, right? That is…until one cookie becomes four cookies …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh peanut butter. How do I love thee…let me count the ways! Now I will preface this recipe by saying that it is possible to lower the fat significantly in this recipe by replacing some (not all) of the peanut butter for peanut flour. I did not choose to do that, but it is definitely a choice you could make. For …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Chewy Pecan Cookies

Oh la, la… Well first…and I know I sound like a broken record here. But these are cookies. In my world, cookies are always going to be a heavily moderated treat. That’s why I am ok with not trying to add protein powder to them. Your mileage may vary. Play with your food! And, of course, use your own best …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Thumbprint Cookies

You all have Amy to thank for this cookie. Amy is a member of the Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club. In the club, we’ve been doing cooking demos where I have been showing folks how to switch up holiday favorites. By far, the one club members seemed most excited about was to explore cookies! To make it even more meaningful I …

Peach-Ginger Chia Protein Popsicles

So first let’s address the elephant in the room: this is not the most attractive popsicle you’ve ever seen. If this popsicle were at television character, it’d probably be Jan Brady (not that Jan wasn’t attractive but she never thought she was as attractive as Marsha), especially in comparison to my Strawberry-Mint & Cheesecake protein pops. If it were a …

Strawberry-Mint & Cheesecake Protein Pops (featuring BiPro USA)

It’s summer! Sorta. I mean…theoretically it’s summer. Even on the calendar it is summer. Someone forgot to send Baltimore the memo. Don’t get me wrong. We have intermittent summer going on here. But it’s very indecisive. It’s like the city wants it to be summer but it’s afraid to let go of spring? We get these random, gorgeously warm days …

Protein Strawberry Cheesecake Cheeseball

Cheesecake. There’s a lot of it on this blog. There are full-sized cheesecakes, mini-cheesecakes,  savory cheesecakes, fall cheesecakes, cheesecake yogurt, cheesecake pops, cheesecake protein shakes and nowwwwwww….cheesecake cheeseball. Yep. I. Love. Cheesecake. Thanks for noticing. As opposed to extolling the virtues of cheesecake (because, really, who has to be convinced that cheesecake is good?), I thought that in the true …

Peppermint Mocha Protein Pudding

This is one of those desserts that so good it makes me want to cuss when I taste it. (Cuss? Yes, cuss!) I took one spoonful of this deliciousness and said to myself, “Hot DAMN, that’s good!” (Risque, I know…) But the beauty of this little dessert also lies in how simple it is to make. I mean seriously. This …

Four Ways WLS Post-Ops Can Have Cake

I know I don’t put dates on my posts so I will say that as I write, it is December 4, 2015. Also known as “the 14th anniversary of my 25th birthday.” What’s the first thing (food-wise) that comes to mind when you think of your birthday? Yep…cake. Birthday cake is more than just a food. It’s a cultural institution. …
