I thought I’d make the recipe I’ve been using public and toss it out there for folks opinions.
This is a low cal weight loss recipe targeted for 1-2 daily meal replacements and designed to balance out a diet where “normal” meals tend to be heavier in carbs and fats. (so the attempt is to keep carbs/fats low in the mix). I also use multiple sources for protein- whey,soy and peanut. For simplification and cost reduction just soy protein could be used but for long term use I like the idea of more than a single source for the protein. The peanut flour provides a nice peanut-butter flavor that blends well with the cocoa powder.
I don’t see many recipes that use peanut flour, not sure if that is because it is a bad idea to consume this everyday or it is just not popular?
I’ve been using this recipe for several months now (tweaked it a little here and there) with good results. Depending on my dinners I tend to lose about a pound a week and will likely up the oats and sugar a bit when I’m at a weight I want to maintain.
I’d welcome any constructive criticism
