High Protein Apple Cinnamon Churros + Quest Bar FLASH Giveaway!

apple cinnamon churros quest bar

Hey guys!!

It’s time to make some yummy food! As you know, I’ve been cooking up some fun high protein, high fiber, and low carb recipes with my Quest Bars and today is the official debut of our first episode in Season 2 of Cooking Clean with Quest! This honestly is one of my fave recipes and it’s just too easy to make. Here’s what you’ll need:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 Apple Pie Quest Bar
  • 3 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons diced apple of your choice
  • a pinch of cinnamon

Here’s how to make it! Watch my cooking video with my good friend Brett Hoebel, amazing Capoeira martial artist (that stuff is HARD), and Biggest Loser Trainer from Season 11!

 

DIRECTIONS:

The Strips

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Spray a cookie sheet with canola oil (or coconut oil)
  3. Roll out the Quest Bar as flat as possible
  4.  Slice into thin strips
  5. Place strips on baking sheet
  6. Bake for about 5 minutes

The Dip

Combine Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, diced apple, and cinnamon in a Magic Bullet or Blender and puree until smooth.

Ok so here’s the deal guys. You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been on some Quest love fest and let me assure you that they are not paying me to say any of the nice things you’ve been hearing on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Sure I get compensated for my time on set (it’s like a job, but a fun job :)), but beyond that, it’s up to me to share this information with you. I am super duper crazy selective about who I choose to brand myself with because it’s kinda like who you choose to spend your time with…who gets to be in your group of good friends. Growing up, I was never the “popular type” with a bajillion friends but rather the kind who got things done and hung out with a select few.

I used to want to be popular in school so bad! I mean, who didn’t!? But then I realized I had nothing in common with those girls. I sure as heck didn’t wake up at 5:30 am to do my hair and makeup! I think the farthest I went was black eyeliner back in high school.

ANYWAY! What I am trying to say is that til this day, I still only have a select few friends and companies that I truly care about and that care about me. Quest is one of them. It’s been almost a year since I was introduced to their brand. Beyond making a spectacular product (high protein, low carb, low sugar, high fiber, and delicious), what stands out to me most is how they run their company. With passion. With a genuine heart. And with a true fire to want to help people. 

A lot of companies I run into want to use me to get to you guys and sell you something. I say no to a lot of deals because I can see that. I want you to benefit from Blogilates as much as possible. That’s why all your workout videos, meal plans, and workout calendars are free. So please, take advantage of that!

I only want to create relationships with people who care about your well being. That word. Relationships. Not business deals. I’m friends with the President of Quest Tom Bilyeu, his dear wife Lisa, and a lot of their team. It aint no fake “hey hello how are you? good. good? good.” type of relationship. It’s an inspirational FRIENDSHIP. That’s the kind of people I work with and want to introduce you to.

I once learned from another driven female entrepreneur that you become like the 5 people you surround yourself closest with. So be choosy about who you hang out with. Create friendships with those that inspire you and lift you higher!

Anyway, I thought I’d share that with you because as an entrepreneur, I value people who are willing to help others rise with no need for anything in return but to see you succeed yourself.

So omg wow I totally went off on a tangent. What I was trying to get to was this…

    Please post an healthy version of french fries?? I loove them!!

  2. I would love to see a healthy lasagna or healthy versions of girl scout cookies!

  3. Looking forward to trying out a quest bar. :) I’d love to find a way to make oreos & peppermint patties healthier! :)

  4. When I tried to eat this quest bar just the way it was, I had to wait until I got home, so I could microwave it. It’s so hard to bite into! Does no one else feel this way? I have this issue with most high protein bars.

  5. Carina Heegaard says:

    I really love a good brownie with icecream and strawberries – so a healthy (or more healthy at least) brownie recipe would be so awesome!!

  6. Macarons

  7. Maybe healthy bread,sweet pie,lasagna and the final is healthy croissants ;p

  8. Omgosh, this makes me so hungry. T.T Looks so goooddddd~ Anyway, healthify shepherd’s pie Cassey! My family loves shepherd pie so a healthy version would be great! Keep doing what you do! Loves <3

  9. Alexandra says:

    Healthy cinnamon rolls would be awesome! :)

  10. Oh oh I really love cheesecakeeeeee!!!!! I mean I can eat the whole cake by my self. What about making quest bar crust cheesecake with like Greek yogurt filling??

  11. You should totally try to healthify brownies! I’ve tried “healthy” brownie recipes before, but none of them turned out to be very tasty, so my fiance and I end up just making box mix brownies. He wants brownies tomorrow, and I’m going to be sad making them, knowing I can’t eat them with him because I’m trying to eat healthier. :(

    Also… Just throwing some ideas out there… lasagna, hot dogs, ice cream sundae(or something like it), chili, cinnamon rolls, milkshakes(if that’s possible), and maybe veggie sushi?

    Aaaaaand…. I know not everyone here is a drinker… But what about a low calorie cocktail?

  12. I’d love to try this! I like the idea of protein bar recipes–I subbed to the Quest instagram to get more ideas, but I’d definitely love to keep seeing them.

    Also, did you have a french toast one? or bread pudding?

  13. Anything pastry- related would be DIVINE! I’m a sucker for sweets :P

  14. bahhh how exciting!!! I am OBSESSED with quest bars! I would love to see a healthified pumpkin bread that actually has the texture of bread! not sure if that’s even possible :)
