Homemade Protein Bars  
1.5 Cups Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup honey
2 scoops Protein Powder
3 Cups dried oatmeal
  In a microwave safe bowl combine peanut butter and honey for 70 -90 seconds. Add protein powder and oatmeal. Mix all of this (it will be thick). Press it into 9X13 inch pan. Put it in the refrigerator to cool.  
* If you use too much honey it will be too moist.  Too much protein powder and it will be too dry.  You’ll need to play around with the amounts to find the right balance or desired texture.  You can also add raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate chips, or sliced almonds.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza
1 head of cauliflower (raw)
3 egg whites
1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Parsley to taste
Oregano to taste
Ground Black Pepper to taste  

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, blend the raw cauliflower.  It should be a breadcrumb consistency.  In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower, egg whites, and parmesan cheese.  If mixture is too wet, add additional parmesan cheese.  Add the spices.  Form the dough into a ball.  Spray a pizza or baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Using your fingers spread the dough on the baking sheet in the form of your crust.  Bake for 20 minutes until a light golden color on top.   Remove from the oven and top the crust with tomato sauce, toppings of your choice, and a blend of cheeses.     Bake for 12-15 minutes.

  * The key is to not make the crust too thick.  The cauliflower has a lot of water so making the crust thinner really works best.  Keep toppings to a minimum.
