Cinnamon Berry Pie for One!

Cinnamon Berry Pie for One

I have a large sweet tooth.. Like probably the size of a dinosaurs so I always want a treat! So I came up with this little Cinnamon Berry Pie for one! Yes one person! All yours ! Back off people... family, friends....this is an "I am not sharing kind of thing!"

1 cinnamon roll quest bar
1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup blackberries

 Microwave bar for 15 second cut off 1/5 of the bar and set aside. Flatten the rest into a small baking dish. Add berries( I chopped mine and put then in but you could mash them and add a little stevia if needed) Then I rolled the 1/5 of the bar into long strings and topped the pie.
Top with a shake or two of cinnamon 
Bake 350 for 8-10 minutes 

NOW Lets talk TOPPING options: 

You have three options and calories for each shown
You can double them up as well.  I am not perfect so my toppings could be considered a little guilty but I don't care. 

1st option:( 30 calories 5.25 protein)
3 tbs cottage cheese
6 drop berry flavored stevia
1/2 tbs almond milk
Pinch of xanthan (optional)

2nd option: (30 calories)
2 tbs fat free cool whip
4 drops berry flavored stevia

3rd option: (80-150 calories depending on brand and amount) 1/3-1/2 cup light vanilla bean ice cream or your on homemade version
( I am in LOVE with desserts that do the hot cold thing! So I am guilty adding this halfway through)

Biscoff Cookie Dough

I LOVE BISCOFF.  When i first found it I ordered a jar and let my sister try it. That valentines days she sent us all jars as little gifts. I may or may not have hid mine from my husband...opps. Anyway now it can be found at any grocery store. Go get some you will not regret it! Its like glorified  peanut butter with a cinnamon twist. This biscoff cookie dough is awesome. It taste so good and is totally healthy. 

1 can chick peas (Garbanzo beans) 
1 scoop vanilla protein
1/3 c biscoff 
3 tbs walden farms maple syrup ( a low sugar or Sugar free works)
2 packets stevia
1/4  and 1/8 tsp cinnamon 
1/8 tsp ground cardamom (this really gives it good flavor its a MUST)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp butter extract 
1 tsp vanilla 

Blend everything together in a VERY WELL in GOOD food processor. You do not want little bits of chick peas left in.  Thats it. ENJOY!
