LEMON-HERB RANCH DRESSING
Drizzle & Dip: This creamy, tangy, herb-filled delight makes an amazing dressing for any salad or a tasty dip for veggies. Its cool, ‘ranch’ like flavor also works well as a sauce for grilled chicken or fish.
- 2 Tbs Lemon Juice
- 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 cup of plain Elli Quark
- 2 Tbs of fresh herbs (such as parsley, oregano, chives, thyme) OR 1 tsp of dried herbs
- 2 Tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- pinch of salt & pepper, to taste
Whisk together lemon juice & garlic. Allow to sit for a few minutes, this mellows the garlic out a bit, before folding in Elli Quark. Next, drizzle in olive oil while whisking rapidly. Lastly, add herbs and season with salt and pepper.
BANANA NUT PROTEIN MUFFINS
Sweet, slimming snack: These muffins offer a wonderful, nutritious start to the day! We also love them on-the-go for or an easy, breezy snack throughout the day. The best part!? These unbelievably moist muffins contain not oil or butter!
- 2/3 cup of oat flour
- 1 scoop of Vanilla Perfect Fit Protein
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup
- 2 small to medium very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup of Plain or Banana flavored Elli Quark
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts
Preheat oven to 400° degrees F and spray a 12 cup muffin tin with organic cooking spray, or grease well with coconut oil. In a medium bowl whisk together oat flour, Perfect Fit Protein, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix mashed banana, apple sauce, Elli Quark, egg whites and vanilla together until well combined and smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. Allow batter to sit for 2 minutes in order to thicken. Divide evenly into 12 muffin cups and top with crushed walnuts. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
