Banana Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats

“I adapted my favorite overnight oats recipe to this calorie-packed option for the cancer patients I work with who may be having treatment-related side effects like weight loss, diarrhea, or difficulty swallowing. I particularly like using Orgain’s vegan protein shake in it as it gives me a chance to highlight the American Institute of Cancer Research’s recommendation to eat a plant-based diet for cancer recurrence prevention.” – Angie

Peanut Butter Protein Buckeyes

“These peanut butter protein buckeyes literally only uses TWO main ingredients: peanut butter and protein powder! The traditional recipe uses pounds and pounds of butter and powdered sugar with the peanut butter, and honestly I daresay this version tastes just as good if not better than the original. I love how the protein powder mimics the traditional powdered sugar in two ways: by adding sweetness as well as thickening the peanut butter to achieve the proper consistency and texture. These taste like a homemade, healthy Reese’s peanut butter cup! I love having a batch on hand in the freezer.” – Brittany
