What I Ate Wednesday – Chocolate Dipped Protein Macaroons

Happy Wednesday friends! If the thought of Chocolate Dipped Protein Macaroons doesn’t get you into the holiday baking spirit, then nothing will, well unless you do not like coconut! Simple to make coconut macaroons, soft, chewy and full of coconut flavor. These are a great addition to your holiday cookie plate!

But first, let’s take a quick peek at some of my favorite eats from last week!

Breakfast

blueberry-waffle

It’s been a hot minute since I last made waffles! I used Birch Benders Paleo Pancake and Waffle mix to make two nice size waffles! I topped it with some Blueberry Walden’s Farms syrup and a dollop of Reddi Whip!

Morning Snack

quest-cravings

At the advice of two of my trusted foodie friends Liz and Jacklyn, I decided to order a few of the Quest Cravings Peanut Butter Cups.  I seriously could have eaten two packages in a row. They are that good! The peanut butter filling is so creamy and the chocolate has just the right amount of sweetness!  I am definitely ordering more!

Lunchchicken-and-waffle-bagel-sammich

Waffle encrusted chicken fingers on a Trader Joe’s Autumn Harvest Bagel  I just made another TJ’s run this weekend and bought what they had in stock. These bagels are SO good and are only around during the holiday.

My new favorite afternoon treat- Chocolate Dipped Protein Macaroons!

These bite sized protein treats are a coconut lover’s dream! Low in sugar, chewy and moist on the inside, crispy and golden on the outside. If you want to take these already delectable macaroons to the next level, then I recommend dipping or drizzling them in chocolate like I did using G-Butter Brownie Batter! I hope you enjoy the recipe! Chocolate Dipped Protein Macaroons

  1. Another super delicious day of eats! And thank you for the shout-out – I’m BEYOND happy that you too agree just how delicious the Quest peanut butter cups are (it only took Quest HOW many years to make them taste good? 😉 ). I’m more of a macaron fan than a macaroon fan (since, you know me and coconut, haha), but your treats sound/look super tasty and festive! Happy Wednesday, dear Wendy! xo

    • Thank you so much for introducing me to those PB cups! They are so freaking good! I forgot your not a coconut fan but your dad may enjoy these! I also love a good macaron- some at Home Goods the other day! xo

    • Thank you Jody! Macaroons are the hubby’s favorite! It doesn’t hurt for him to have something healthy on the sly!
