MCT "Cook~n~Craft"


GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome back to another "Cook~n~Craft". 
I am SUPER HAPPY about today because my team & I are sharing a project of our choice along with one of our FAVORITE recipes!

First up, here is my card I made today! :)  Since it is raining in some parts of our world, I thought this was the perfect card for someone who is under the weather.  I colored in my umbrella using my FAVORITE "Zig Clean Color Brush" markers!"  These are my FAVORITE markers because you can get EVERY color for around 10ish, which was way more affordable for me.  I REALLY tried to grow my copic collection, but realized that there was NO WAY I would be able to afford EVERY copic color, so I just stuck with the handful of colors I already had & purchased my ZIG markers!  The brand of watercolor paper I used was CANSON .
I REALLY LOVE how my card came out! :)

Okay, now onto a couple of my FAVORITE recipes I am enjoying right now! :) 

First is my "Protein Pancakes" that I have made for my boys this summer! I would have these ready for them when they came back from their workouts every morning!  They either had it BEFORE or after each daily workout.  These are SOOO YUMMY & not to mention these are VEGAN & they are guilt free pancakes! :) You can see recipe below this picture.


Protein Pancakes
~ one ripe banana
~ 1 tsp vanilla extract
~ 2 tbls coconut nectar or maple syrup
~ 1 1/4 cup oat flour
~ 1 tsp baking powder
~ 1 tbls flaxseed meal
~ 1 scoop protein powder (I use THIS one)
~ 1 1/4 cup almond milk or any other non-dairy milk

If you do not have oat flour, you can just blend up some regular oats! Throw everything in the blender, then cook them! :)  SUPER EASY & SUPER YUMMY  Now, you can totally omit the protein powder & have these without it & they would STILL be YUMMY! :) 

For my boys, I would give them a green smoothie with their pancakes!  I make sure they have ALL the nutrition they need especially after their high intensity workouts! ;)

I also enjoyed the pancakes along with my boys, but I made a "Matcha Green Tea Latte" for me! ;)
I LOVE this stuff because there are several health benefits! Here are just a few:

~ high in antioxidants
~ boosts memory & concentration
~ increases energy levels & endurance
~ burns calories
~ detoxifies the body
~ fortifies the immune system
~ improves cholesterol

Now, there are a few more health benefits, but these are the ones that are important to me!
You can see how I make this below this picture!



Matcha Green Tea Latte
~ 1 tsp Match Green Tea Powder (I use THIS one)
~ 1 tsp Pumpkin Spice Powder
~ Maple Syrup to sweeten
~ 1/4 - 1/2 cup hot water
~ 1/2 cup of almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)

I just blend everything together in my nutra bullet & it comes out nice & frothy! ;)  Last I just add a few shakes of cinnamon on top~!  This is perfect with my protein pancakes!  Now, keep in mind, you don't have to follow this recipe to the tee! Feel free to adjust it to YOUR liking!

Now onto my AMAZING team!  Dont' forget to click on each name to visit each blog & see the recipes they share! :)

OH,  I wanted to touch base with you all on our FLASH sale we had over the weekend! We SOLD OUT of the "EXCLUSIVE" die set "Stitched Zig Zag Dies"  Remember I mentioned that once they are gone......they are GONE FOREVER?!!   Now, since these are sold out, I am keeping them visible in my store so you can refer back to it for inspiration! :)
