In the Kitchen-Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cupcakes

In the Kitchen with Wild Will

This week I bring you Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Cupcakes with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze. Let’s be honest who doesn’t love cupcakes? They are like little mini cakes of delight. But as we all know we must avoid a “true” cupcake most of the time to maintain a healthy lifestyle; especially during contest prep. So I bring you an alternative. True it is a not real cupcake with its flour and sugar. However when your sweet tooth starts to crave or you want to bring a healthy alternative to your backyard BBQ these cupcakes are sure to hit the spot. Enjoy!

3 TBSP Truvia

¾ Cup Plain 0% Fat Greek Yogurt

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 Cup Chocolate Almond Milk

2 TBSP Peanut Butter

You can add up to ½ more cup of whey protein if you like a thicker batter

Combine all the dry and wet ingredients into a large mixing bowl and blend.

Using a cupcake tin scoop out two spoonful’s per cupcake.

Place cupcake tin in your preset oven for 350 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Be sure to test the cupcake when brining it out the oven to make sure it has cooked through. I prefer to do this with a toothpick. Place it in the cupcake, if you (more…)

Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie Dough 

In my 29 years in have never met a single person, who doesn’t like cookie dough, it’s almost better than the cookie itself.  However cookie dough is not known for its nutritional value.

In the Kitchen with Wild Will- Sweet Potato Fries

In the Kitchen with Wild Will

Sweet Potato Fries

Look let’s just start this off with some honest talk. If you don’t love French Fries we can’t be friends. We all love them, look you know you do. Stop pretending but at least now you can eat them without guilt.

I’m sure we all have seen many Sweet Potato Fries recipes out there before. Usually they involved soaking them in olive oil and baking them which 10253368_10101840243174988_1647482849_ndoesn’t give the any kind of crunch. Usually it’s just a soggy mess and what the heck is the point of that? Or you have seen them in the frozen section of your grocery store. Have you read the ingredients? It’s basically frozen fast food fries. No thank you, I’m all trying to be all shredded over here.  Like you I was just about to give up until….until I thought well wait why not just recreate the deep fry process? EUREKA!! At that point Wild Will’s Sweet Potato Fries were born.

Here we go but first a disclaimer. Yes you can use other potatoes for this recipe; however sweet potatoes are the ideal given their nutrient density. However subbing in red potatoes or Yukon gold potatoes won’t destroy you.

This recipe is made with two large sweet potatoes


2 Large Peeled sweet potatoes

1 TBSP Salt

1 TBSP Pepper

1 TBSP Paprika

1 TBSP Season All Salt (optional)

In the Kitchen MeatZZa Pizza

In the Kitchen with Wild Will

Meatzza Pizza

Ah pizza. My favorite food group, yes I said group. There are so many different kinds. However…as we know pizza is not the sort of thing you can have a daily basis if want to live lean and trim. No fear Wild Will is here. This weeks In the Kitchen features a Meatzza Pizza. A Meatzza is when the crust is replaced by a layer of ground beef (95% lean of course). By replacing the dough crust with a meat crust you drastically cut down on the carbs. Meatzza 2

Be sure to check out the accompanying directional video.


1lb of lean ground beef (You can do ground chicken or turkey if you like)

½ can of Organic pizza sauce ( I prefer the organic because they don’t add sugar)

1 egg

The remaining ingredients are up to you.  Just like any other type of pizza you get to decide what to put on it. Your Meatzza can have onions, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms etc. It’s your Meatzza so make it your own. Now for macro purposes I am only going to include the top 3 main ingredients. In the directional video I personally used turkey pepperoni and part skim mozzarella cheese.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place beef and egg into a mixing bowl. Feel free to add anytime of spice you would like. In the video I use basic season all but for you more adventurous types. Go NUTS!! Have fun, its pizza remember.

Using your hands blend the beef and egg together

Grab a backing dish and place the beef mixture into the dish

Spread the meat (crust) out evenly throughout the dish. Be sure to get all the edges and keep the crust even. If the crust is uneven it will not bake properly. (more…)

Protein Brownies

In he Kitchen with Wild Will

Who doesn’t love brownies? I mean really,have you ever met someone who you offered a brownie and they said mmmm no thanks? If you have, I would personally stop being their friend. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. HOWEVER. Brownies are rarely found on a person living a healthy nutrient dense lifestyles meal plan. Sadly. That is until now. Once again I have entered your life to bring your Protein Brownies. These are some seriously tasty and moist (sorry for everyone who hates the word moist) brownies.

Be sure to try these brownies out for yourself. Now if you do make these please post your comments on Face Book with a picture of you and your brownies. I would greatly appreciate it.

Now the videos are coming. Editing takes a bit of time along with getting everyone together to film; a bit more ambitious then I originally thought. Apparently YouTube stars don’t have day jobs.

So without further delay here are Wild Will’s Protein Brownies.

Protein Brownies


1 cup of liquid egg whites

1 can (200g) of unsalted cooked black beans

3 scoops chocolate protein powder

1/4 cup of cocoa

1/4 cup of syrup

3 tbsp coconut flour

5 tbsp cottage cheese

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1-3 tbsp of peanut butter (optional but really nice)


photo 31. Using a mixer blend all the ingredients together. Bear in mind that what you want to end up with is a thick pancake-like batter. If your batter is too runny, add a tbsp more of coconut flour until it thickens. If it’s too thick, add an extra egg white or two.

2. Once your mixture is perfect, smooth and thick, yet pour-able. Bake it in a small brownie pan at 320 degrees for 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

3. Pull out of the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes

If you want to substitute the coconut flour, you can. Try ground oats, or a combo of ground oats and ground almonds. You’ll probably want to add a lot more than 3 tbsp of either of them to thicken the batter though, so just eyeball it and add enough until your batter looks like, well, brownie batter.

If you want to add an extra element of oomph to the brownies, throw some chopped walnuts onto the batter just before you put in the oven. Or add to the batter if you want them in the brownies themselves. Just be sure to account for it in the macros.

Almond Coated Chicken Nuggets

Raise your hand if you love Chicken Nuggets!! I love them; honestly I can’t really get enough of them. That great crunch!
