Starbucks Copycat Protein Bistro Packs
You know those packaged Starbucks Bistro Protein Packs? I love to pick them up along with my “Tall, Decaf, Soy, No Foam Latte” (yes, a little high maintenance order there…but I can’t have caffeine and I want as much soy milk as possible so no foam…but I digress). Anyway, the latte is already $3.75 and the protein pack “snack” adds another $5.25 to the order and poof…the balance on my Starbucks app goes away pretty quickly.
Every time I pick one up, I think “I can make this myself.” Also, I don’t eat the cheese that’s inside so I’m wasting food – in addition to the plastic container. But the little tasty bread rounds are my favorite and the limiting factor in making the packs myself.

Meyer Lemon Snack Cake
This is a great morning snack cake! I love snack cakes because they have no or limited frosting and they are perfect with breakfast – you never feel like you are eating a heavy dessert. The tang of the lemon is a perfect way to start your morning. This recipe “only” uses less than a stick of butter so it isn’t super rich. And because of that, you can sneak pieces throughout the day. 🙂 Just sayin.
Baked in an 8″ square pan, you can get 9 really big pieces or more smaller ones. I cut several of these into triangles and they looked cute.
They say you can mi… Read More
