What you need:

 

  • Cream Pie Ingredients

1 Can of chickpeas

1/4 Cup almond butter

1/2 Cup oats

2 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. vanilla whey protein

  • Frosting Ingredients

1/4 Cup almond butter

2 Tbsp. vanilla whey protein

2 Tbsp. non-fat Greek yogurt

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 20 minutes; Servings: 8-10)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F.

  3. Take the Cream Pie mixture, and fill a large, lightly greased muffin tin, using enough mix to fill each individual muffin tin 1/4-1/2 of the way full. (Quick Tip: It’s easier to make the “pies” with a muffin tin, but you can also use a cookie sheet.)

  4. Bake in the oven for 13 minutes; while the Cream Pies are baking, mix together your Frosting ingredients by hand in a small bowl.

  5. When Cream Pies are done, remove them from your muffin tin or cookie sheet; next, add “cream” to one side of Cream Pie, and make sandwich with the other; Serve immediately, or refrigerate for a later date.

  6. Eat & enjoy!
