Protein Packed Pumpkin Butter Bars and a Giveaway!

Pumpkin pumpkin everywhere.. and I LOVE IT!  Pumpkins are symbolic for Halloween.  I mean who doesn’t love carving a Jack-0-lantern? Pumpkins are loaded with vitamin A and fiber, and low in calories.  Thanks to  SI03 and their AMAZING Syntrax Protein Powders this recipe was so easy to come up with. Now I know the word ‘butter’ in the recipe make scare some people off as right away they think butter is from the devil.  Well this has NO butter in it (like not the kind you’re thinking of).  You make ‘butter’ out of pumpkin.  Just trust me on this.  It’s so yummy and way low in fat unlike the real stuff and JUST as amazing in taste!

Protein Packed Pumpkin Butter Bars2

These Pumpkin Butter Bars are just amazing!  They are soft and oaty with a creamy pumpkin filling that is lip-biting amazing!  I mean it’s THAT good! Now the true test was Mr. Fantabulous.  See he has never really been a hardcore pumpkin fan. I mean he’ll eat it but he would never ask for something pumpkin flavored.  As these were cooling I could hear him coming out of the office sniffing away (trust me, the aromas are intoxicating!).  Of course they were way too hot to cut to which I got the pouty face (he’s just so adorable!). Eventually they were cool enough to eat and let me tell you what, after his first bite, the entire thing went into his mouth for the 2nd bite.  There was no 3rd or 4th.  Just 2 bites (okay so they were small but it still takes me 4 bites to eat a square).  He LOVED these!

But wait… what about the giveaway?

Guiltless Chewy Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

So we all love desserts in some form – cakes, cookies, pies, brownies, bark, candies, etc.  Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if you could “have your cake and eat it too” WITHOUT the guilt?  Being The Kitchen Whisperer I take pride in providing a variety of recipes that appeals to everyone in one way or another – diabetic, gluten-free, vegetarian, meat lovers, seafoodies and so forth.  I’ve always said on here and on both Facebook and Twitter that if anyone ever needed help converting a recipe to a healthier version (when not listed) to just contact me.  Now granted not all recipes can be converted while still retaining that awesome taste but we do our best.

And by now you all know that I personally tend to eat a high protein diet with a good 1.5-2 hours of working out a day (yeah plus work my real job AND run TKW) but the passion and drive is in me so I do it.  However we all have those days where spinach doesn’t cut it when all you want in life is ice cream, cookies and well.. “junk food” as deemed by society.

What if I told you that I’ve come up with some really awesome HEALTHY (I’m calling them Guiltless) ‘treats’ that you can eat, still have the same pleasure as gorging down cheesecake without having remorse later.  Now granted this doesn’t mean that “Hey if it’s healthy or guiltless I can eat an entire dozen of these cookies and plop on the couch for 6 hours.” Um no, hardly. What it is saying is that you can have dessert without the guilt, still have amazing flavors and get that same awesome taste satisfaction.  Do you still have to watch what you eat?  Of course (unless you’re one of those lucky people like Mr. Fantabulous that can eat everything and anything and not gain an ounce -fyi..I secretly hate you *wink*) and yes you still have to work out but you really don’t have to deprive yourself.  Well okay, still follow doctor’s orders, naturally but if you want a treat that is good for you, high in protein AND taste amazing, I suggest you follow these posts using Protein Powders by SI03.

I 1 bajillion percent swear by their products.  My favorites are the Syntrax Nectars and Micellar Cremes. They blend perfectly into your milk, water, juice, baked goods and every day foods.  There is NO chalky taste (you know me folks; you know what a HUGE food snob I am!) and the taste. Good LORD the taste is INCREDIBLE!  I’ve yet to find a flavor that I dislike.  As you come to know, Mr. Fantabulous has been doing body building for years and swore by ‘his’ protein powder.  I tried his, a few times, but couldn’t get past the smell and the taste.  I needed something that appealed to all my senses – great flavor, no gross smells and useability.  I came across SI03 and Syntrax a few years back.  Literally I fell in love after my first taste.  I’ve been hooked ever since.  As the years went by I noticed my stash of protein powder was going down faster than usual.  I knew I wasn’t drinking that much.  I come to find out that Mr. Fantabulous fell in love with mine and no longer wanted his.

Now let’s dish on Whey Protein Isolate versus Whey Protein Concentrate.  First, I am no where near an expert on this; I only know what I’ve come to learn and be educated on.  The first ingredient in the Nectars is Whey Protein Isolate.  There are various schools of theory on which is better isolate versus concentrate.  Personally I feel the isolate is better as it’s a more purified protein which means it’s more pure protein.  Whey isolate usually contains between 90-94% protein while whey concentrate has a protein ratio of around 70-85%. It’s also better for those that are lactose intolerant.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff.  DESSERT!

LOOK at these cookies!  I mean they just scream “SCRUMPTIOUS!”

But if you listen closer you’ll really hear “I’m SCRUMPTIOUS AND GUILTLESS!!!”

Yep, these are packed with protein with the addition of the Syntrax Vanilla Bean Torte Protein Powder!
