Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘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.

Fit + Fueled

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.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

I actually thought up this macro-friendly recipe while laying in bed and after eating, like, 800 Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups leftover from Halloween. I seriously haven’t been able to keep my hand out of the bag. They’re that incredible.

Clearly, I was inspired by the flavor combo, but I also had some canned pumpkin that I wanted to use up. Yea, I know… I’m kind of weird obsessed with not wasting food, so I sometimes think about what’s in my fridge at random times of day. Ok, not normal.

Anyway, I’m loving all things peanut butter + chocolate lately, so, naturally, Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Brownies seemed like the perfect recipe. And, guys, these single-serving brownies couldn’t be easier to make– just mix up the batter, pour into ramekins, and nuke in the microwave. Easy as that!

And, of course, the melted peanut butter and chocolate is truly to die for. Enjoy!
