This GIANT Low Carb Pop Tart Is The Size Of An Infant

The first thing that may come to mind when you see a Pop Tart bigger than your head is “sugar rush.” This massive one, however, stays super low on the carbs but is great for those looking to bulk post-workout.

Zach Rocheleau, aka @theflexibledietinglifestyle on Instagram, created this XL Pop Tart packed with Legendary Foods nut butter. The base, filling, and frostings are all packed with protein, giving this toaster pastry some pretty insane macros.

You can fill the inside with as much Legendary Foods nut butter as you wish. In terms of the base, though, you’re looking at a solid 192 calories with just 3 grams of total sugar. There’s just under 16 total grams of carbs, but considering that 5 of those are fiber and this is for a Pop Tart that can easily feed the whole workout squad, that’s an insanely low figure.

Here’s how to make this high protein, keto-friendly XL Pop Tart that’ll make you the envy of your squad.

Macros for the whole Pop Tart Base: 575 Cals, 47g Carbs (15g of which are Fiber, Only 9g Sugar), 23g Fat, 45g Protein

Serves 3 people.

Ingredients

For the Pop Tart dough
30g (2 Tbsp) Vanilla Protein Powder
20g (1½ Tbsp) Coconut Flour
20g (1½ Tbsp) Ultra Fine Almond Flour
20g (1½ Tbsp) All Purpose Flour
20g (1½ Tbsp) Powdered PB
28g (2 Tbsp) Light Butter (This butter has around 5g fat per 14g)
28g (2 Tbsp) Plain Non Fat Greek Yogurt
4g (1 tsp) Stevia

For the filling
56g (4 Tbsp) Legendary Foods Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter (Recommended, but add as much as you want!)

For the Protein Frosting:
31g (2 Tbsp) Vanilla Protein Powder
5g (1¼ tsp) Coconut Flour
1g (¼ tsp) Stevia

For the icing
16g (1 Tbsp) Legendary Foods Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven on 350 Degrees F. Add all dry Pop Tart ingredients to a food processor and pulse to combine. Next, add butter in small chunks and blend until you have a ball of dough. Place in fridge for 10 minutes.

Step 2
Once dough has cooled, take ball of dough and place between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll it out as far as you can. Next, take a pizza cutter and cut out out bottom piece of dough. Take the leftover dough and add to another piece of parchment paper. Take the other piece you had on top of the other one and roll it out till you have your top piece of dough.

Step 3
Next, take your peanut butter and spread in the middle of bottom piece of the Pop Tart, leaving about an inch around the edges. Take your other piece of dough and add it on top. Do this by flipping the parchment paper over and laying that piece of dough on top and then gently peeling it off the parchment to not rip it

Step 4
Gently press down the edges and then spray the top with non stick butter spray. You can add egg wash here instead if you want. Then, take a fork and crimp the edges. Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden on top and a little bit darker on the edges.

Step 5
While the Pop Tart is baking, add your Protein Frosting ingredients to a bowl and slowly add cold water (20ml) at a time and mix until you have a thick icing/frosting like consistency. Add to freezer to chill and let it thicken up some more.

Step 6
Once Pop Tart is done, remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Once cool, add your frosting on top. Then add 32g of your Legendary Foods Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter (will probably only use 16g of it when adding to pop tart but need enough in there just in case) to a zip lock bag. Cut a small tip on the end and drizzle on top! Then enjoy this heavenly MASSIVE Protein Pop Tart!

This Low Carb Chicken Crust Pizza Went So Viral It’s Now In Grocery Stores Nationwide

Homemade pizzas were our jam growing up. We’d pop one in the oven and enjoy as we watched Legends of the Hidden Temple.

You may remember Real Good Foods as the company that creates ‘Real Good Pizza,” a low-carb pie that’s made with an all-natural chicken and parmesan crust, leaving it entirely gluten-free. Each serving only contains 4 grams of carbs and boasts 25 grams of protein.

The pizzas come in Uncured Pepperoni, The Supreme, and Three Cheese flavors. We tend not to pick favorites, but The Supreme is pretty damn good.

If you’re looking to grab a couple boxes for your next Friday night in, you’re in luck, because Real Good Foods just announced pizzas will be sold at all Publix Market locations across the country.

Next time you’re on the hunt for some low carb yet highly delicious pizza that’s easy to make, pick some up your local Publix and just pop it in the microwave or oven.

Pro tip: we highly recommend pairing these pies with some ranch dressing.

Real Good Foods Just Debuted Low Carb Enchiladas, Here’s What We Think

A few months back, pizza lovers everywhere were introduced to Real Good Pizza, an innovative gluten-free, high-protein, low calorie pizza, with a crust made entirely from parmesan cheese and all-natural chicken breast.

With alternative diet trends gaining popularity, it’s safe to say Real Good Pizza raised some eyebrows once their line-up of low carb, high protein pizzas hit Walmart, Kroger and other stores over the past few months.

Now, the newest creation within the Real Good Food family of keto-friendly eats is a team of enchiladas that feature a similar parmesan and chicken breast crust, only this time it’s in the shape of a hand rolled tortilla.

Considering there is ONLY 4g Carbs & 20g of protein in an entire box, this uniquely crafted concept is a game changer, in the sense that it brings more variety to people looking for more protein in their diets or trying to cut back on their carbs.

Now available in beef, cheese, chicken and pork flavor, Real Good Enchiladas are NOW available at Kroger family stores across the country.

A New Brand Of Protein Chips Comes In Flavors Like Spicy Chili Lime & Salted Caramel

At long last, there may finally be an answer to the lack of healthy, protein-based snacks. Protes, a Brooklyn-based company, has created a solution in the form of a protein-based tortilla chip that may change the way you look at other tortilla chips from now on.

Regardless of your lifestyle, it’s never a bad idea to eat more protein. However, if you’ve ever spent time browsing the supermarket shelves, you’d know finding healthy and delicious snacks is harder than finding a needle in a haystack.

By introducing vegan and GMO-free chips to the market, Protes is here to change the mindset that tasty snacks can’t be healthy.

Protes Chips are made with pea protein, and each bag contains 15 grams of protein. With flavors like Zesty Nacho, Tangy Southern BBQ, Toasted Coconut and Spicy Chili Lime, there’s a flavor for every day of the week.  

So, next time you’re that late night snack craving hits, pop open a bag of Protes so you can taste all the flavor but dismiss all the guilt.  

Currently Protes Chips are available at GNC and The Vitamin Shoppe, along with their website www.eatprotes.com.

You’d Never Guess This Pasta Is Made With Only One Ingredient

Let’s face it, we all love pasta because carbs are basically the best thing on earth. Yet, the guilt that follows after, every time you boil up a batch and crush the whole thing, is more unbearable than waiting a week for the latest GOT episode.

With that in mind, KNOW Foods decided to rethink how pasta was made, and developed a super dope recreation, that doesn’t use wheat at all.

Know Better Pasta is only made with one, gluten-free ingredient — chickpeas. So, for those of us that can’t wait to get home to smash a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, we can grub without eating rabbit food six times a week.

With a variety of shapes, including elbows and twists, KNOW Foods has the guilt-free pasta game on lock. And, what’s also tight is that since it’s made with 100 percent chickpeas, it only takes a few minutes to cook.

We basically dropped it in boiling water, turned off the heat, scrolled through Instagram for 5 minutes, and it was perfectly cooked.

KNOW Better Pasta also has your back in the protein and fiber categories, with about 20 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per cup. That’s pretty baller.

Since we got a bunch of KNOW Better Pasta shipped to the office, you know FOODBEAST has been busy whipping up all kinds of fire recipes, like lobster mac ‘n cheese waffles, a giant mac ‘n cheese bun cheeseburger, and some pumpkin mac ‘n cheese bites.

It’s awesome to see a how a low-carb, gluten-free pasta can be modified into some super indulgent recipes that taste good AF.

For now, this guilt and gluten-free pasta can be found on Amazon and Knowfoods.com, so head over to grab a few bags.
