There's nothing better than the holiday season ... it truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

You may think you have to completely fall off the wagon to enjoy these delicious desserts, but that's not the case. 

As a Christmas gift, we wanted to hook you up with some tasty recipes that can crush your holiday cravings ... while still allowing you to stay on track! 


Cinnamon Swirl Protein Cake 

Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 egg white
- 1 scoop Stage 7 Sugar Cookie Protein Powder
- 2 teaspoons Stevia

1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.
2. Blend in a blender the oats, egg white, and water until the consistency is smooth.
3. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Whisk it together with the protein powder and 1 teaspoon Stevia. The mixture should be thick like pancake batter.
4. Pour half of the batter into a small (about 4.5 inches across) nonstick pan and sprinkle with two-thirds of the cinnamon plus 1 teaspoon Stevia. Pour the remaining batter and sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon.
5. Pull a knife through the batter a few times to slightly mix in the cinnamon and Stevia.
6. Bake for 25 minutes and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

No Bake Chocolate Peppermint Protein Balls

Ingredients:
- 10 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup Level-1 Peppermint Bark Protein Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 2-4 tablespoons crushed candy canes
- 2-4 tablespoons chocolate chips
- 2-4 tablespoons water (optional - see notes below)

Instructions:

1. Put everything except the candy cane, chocolate chips and water into a bowl and mix well.
2. Slowly add water if needed. You may not need any water if your almond butter is runny. Start with a teaspoon and slowly add until you get a well mixed batter. If you add too much then the batter will be too soft to roll.
3. Add the candy canes and chocolate chips and mix again.
4. Allow to chill in the fridge while you clean up, then roll into balls.
5. You can then top with more crushed candy canes for presentation if you'd like. We just rolled them in or sprinkled them on top.
