2015 Christmas Cooking Party Recipes

Cheers to all who celebrated Team A.M.Fit and another year of healthy inspiration at last night's Annual Christmas Cooking Party. As promised, I've included the recipes below. They'd make great additions to the traditional meals served over the holidays.

Snickerdoodle GoPro Balls
Makes 24 medium balls or 48 small balls
  • 4 scoops Cellucor Snickerdoodle whey protein
  • 1 c all natural peanut butter
  • 2.5 c oats
  • 1 c pure pumpkin
  • stevia/cinnamon to taste
Mix dry ingredients together first. In a separate bowl, microwave peanut butter to make it easier to mix in. Combine peanut butter and pumpkin, folding it all together until well blended and all sticky. Pop in fridge for 1 hour or so. Bring back out to form into small balls. Line them on a baking tray and keep in fridge (up to one week) or freezer (up to two weeks). 

Caramel Pie Butter
  • 1 c (or 1/2 can) pure pumpkin
  • 1 c all natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp caramel extract
  • stevia/cinnamon to taste
Blend all ingredients together using hand mixer or blender/processor. Keep in fridge (up to one week). Use as dip for fruit, spread on rice cakes, protein pancakes or by itself.

Low Carb Turkey Enchiladas
Makes 11x14 pan of enchiladas
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 package low sodium taco/enchilada seasoning (Mccormick's or Mrs. Dash)
  • 1/2 head cabbage (separate in big leaves)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 can organic enchilada sauce
  • 1 c nonfat cheese (cheddar/feta/whatever)
  • Mixed veggies (for topping)*
Cook ground turkey on stovetop in pan. Set oven to 350 degrees F. Mix in taco seasoning packet (follow packet instructions). Set meat aside. Spray baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Fill cabbage leaves with spoonful of meat and cheese and roll each up, placing the fold-side down into the baking dish. Pack dish full of the cabbage roll-ups, and top with enchilada sauce. Top with veggies if desired (think spinach, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, etc.) Be sure to cover all components with sauce, and if desired, sprinkle with more cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 mins. Uncover, check cabbage to be almost clear, and bake another 5 minutes uncovered until cheese is melted.

Superfood Enchilada Casserole
Makes 11x14 casserole
  • 1/2 head cabbage (peeled in strips)
  • 1 package low sodium taco/enchilada seasoning (Mccormick's or Mrs. Dash)
  • 4 c kale/spinach
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 can organic enchilada sauce
  • 1 c nonfat cheese (cheddar/feta/whatever)
  • Mixed veggies (for topping)*
Set oven to 350 degrees F. On stovetop, sautee all veggies except cabbage with 1 tbsp EVOO or coconut oil and 1/2 package of seasoning. Once cooked, set aside. Spray baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Layer cabbage leaves on bottom. Layer kale/veggie blend on top. Layer with cheese and top with enchilada sauce. Continue these layers until all ingredients are gone. Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 mins. Uncover, check cabbage to be almost clear, and bake another 5 minutes uncovered until cheese is melted.

Mexican Cauliflower Rice
  • 2 bags frozen cauliflower (1 bag)
  • 1 can diced green chiles (1 can)
  • 1 red bell pepper (I used one red one)
  • Mrs. Dash Chipotle Lime seasoning (tons of it)
  • Garlic salt
Mix all ingredients around in a casserole dish. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. The mushier it is, the easier it is to take a knife and chop it up like rice. You can also cook cauliflower in crockpot on high for 2-3 hours. Then, blend cauliflower in food processor. Transfer it back to crockpot, coat in chipotle lime seasoning and chili powder. Serve with salsa, fat-free sour cream or even atop a bed of greens.

PROats (Cake)
Makes 1 single serving unless multiplied for cake
  • 1/2 c oats*
  • 1 scoop whey protein powder*
  • Stevia/cinnamon to taste
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract**
  • 1/2 c water (or more)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
*1:1 Ratio for multiplying recipe to make cake
**Vary extracts for different flavors (i.e. maple, pumpkin pie, caramel, etc.)

Mix dry ingredients in a microwavable dish, and cover with water. Stir until batter consistency. Store in fridge until ready to bake. If making a single serving, cover and pop in microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir if needed. You can cook another 30 seconds if it hasn't risen. If baking a cake, bake in oven for 15 minutes at 300 degrees F, or until it rises.
