Happy Weekend

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Hi, guys! 😎 Just a quickie post– mostly for accountability’s sake, but also to tell you about a cool event taking place in New York City next weekend that you could win a ticket to attend!


At NuVal, I made myself a mug of sugar-free hot cocoa. And, when I got home, I whipped up a 3-Minute Cookie, but I changed the recipe to give it a more “cake-y” texture.


I combined the following ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Vega Smoothie Infusion
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

Then, I nuked the mixture in the microwave for 60 seconds. The consistency was softer and denser than my original recipe. It was also more filling. I actually might like this “cookie” better.

  1. Hey Tina, have you tried PB2? It is lower in fat and calories than regular peanut butter. I know you have your favorite and I totally understand that you don’t get between a girl and her favorite peanut butter. I am asking because it would go really well in the cookie! It would give you the flavor and cut back on some of the fat/calories. It is not as sweet as regular peanut butter, so I like to add a little vanilla stevia drops to it…so good. Just thought I would suggest it. Speaking of which…I need to try this cookie soon!

  2. I just tried your original cookie about 5 minutes ago. All I have to say is yum!! I gave mine an “icing” of 2tsp vanilla yogurt mixed with 1 tsp peanut butter. and it was heaven!! Loved it, you are a genius!

  3. Your cookies are so interesting. I might have to give it a try.

    I’d love to attend that event, but there’s no way I could get to NY. Whoever gets it will love it, I’m sure!

    Contest on my page. My very first, check it out!

  4. Oh bummer, this is so close to me and I LOVE Pure studios. Unfortunately I won’t be in town but hope the winner has a blast! Have a great weekend!

  5. I am so wanting to try this cookie, love the addition of Greek yogurt. This weekend I am giving it a whirl. We going skiing, Think I could put this in my pocket instead of a power bar? I would like this better, the bars are too sweet for me. This cookie is better balanced.

  6. Hi Tina,

    I’ve been reading your blog for upwards of 2 years now, but have never commented. I wanted to do so now, however, to tell you I think you’re fantastic and to share the following link with you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPsXCXSn7WU

    If you are afraid to click on it (I’m super virus-conscious also), go to youtube and search “play him off keyboard dog”… excessively adorable pug footage. Guaranteed to make you smile!

  7. Hi there! This was my second attempt at making your cookie. The first time I added amazing meal to it and i could not even eat it. This time I skipped the amazing meal and added the greek yogurt and barney butter and its edible, but not delicious. It sort of tastes like a protein pancake. Hmm.. guess I have to keep playing with it.
