HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!! Here are some delicious eats to make your honey, or have them make for you! ❤
Ok, I have been on this pineapple upside down cake kick for a while now. I searched EVERYWHERE for a recipe, but they all were super unhealthy and I wanted something I could eat a piece of every day. I took a recipe and tweaked it to a healthier version of the awesome old lady classic that is PUDC.
Since I used very little fat in the recipe this cake has a consistency that is almost exactly like my Oma’s German Struedel. It’s a dense, moist affair as opposed to something light and fluffy. You get a large piece for only 150ish calories, and it tastes AMAZING.

I LURVE protein bars, the downside is that they are prettttty much candy bars. Let’s be real. So instead of paying $4 a pop for fancy protein bars I made my own. Booya.
