This is one of my favorite fueling hacks made with the brownie packet! It is so quick and easy to make, but yet oh so delicious! It is just a matter of mixing a few ingredients! No cooking required! Yes! You read that right!
I added PB2, but you can always leave it out! Peanut butter makes everything better in my eyes! I also added a little bit of whipped cream (1 Condiment for 2 tbsp) and a tbsp of Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup (1/2 Condiment) for a more decadent dessert!

Originally, Optavia made a Greek Yogurt Cookie Dough recipe using the chocolate chip soft bake which is also very yummy, but this is even better! If you haven't tried that one yet, you need too!

Look at all that yumminess! 

This does count as half a Leaner Lean, but it is so worth it! You would need to add half a Lean and three Greens to complete your Lean and Green for the day. Something like 3 ounces of grilled chicken and 1 1/2 cups of roasted approved veggies. Another great choice could be 2.5 ounces of 93% ground beef and 1 cup of cooked spaghetti squash with 1/4 cup low carb marinara sauce! Then have this for dessert a little later. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Brownie Batter Yogurt


1 packet Optavia Brownie (1 Fueling)
5.3 oz container of low fat plain Greek yogurt (1/2 Lean)
1 tbsp PB2 or PBFit (1/2 Snack)


Combine the three ingredients in a medium sized bowl and stir until combined. Mixture will be thick. Enjoy!

1 Serving with 1/2 Leaner and 1/2 Optional Snack

This is one of my favorite "On the Go" recipe. You can make these in advance and stick them in little plastic baggies to take along with you. The weekends are kind of hectic in our household, so these are perfect for me to make the night before. Another great thing about these little cakes is that you can switch out some of the Medifast or Optavia pancake fuelings and use them with a variety of soft bakes for added variety! These are especially good with the light laughing cow cheese! Oh my heavens! Delish! Enjoy this versatile recipe!

Blended cottage cheese with sugar free syrup is used to make this awesome dessert. I have tried it cold and warm, but my preference is warm! Right out of the microwave is the best way to eat these in my opinion! Enjoy this yummy recipe!

Slutty Brownie

1 MF brownie (1 Fueling)
1 MF chocolate chip soft bake (1 Fueling)
1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese ( 1/6 Leanest Lean)
1 tbsp Walden Farms sugar free caramel syrup (1/2 a Condiment)

 Mix up your brownie mix according to directions, 
split between two small ramekins.
Mix up your soft bake according to directions, and set aside.
Whip the cottage cheese with the syrup in a small blender to get the lumps out. Pour the cottage cheese mixture over the brownie, then top with drops of the soft bake.
Microwave 1 minute (it will be underdone). Eat warm or freeze 30 minutes and then eat.

I am not sure if you guys are familiar with the candy called haystacks? It is commonly known in the South as a crunchy candy using chow mein noodles or pretzels, butterscotch morsels, peanuts, and peanut butter. They are delicious! I miss them but this fueling maker is a great substitute. If you would like them sweeter, add a packet of Stevia. Enjoy!


1 Optavia or Medifast Hot Cocoa or Brownie Mix (1 Fueling)
1 Optavia or Medifast Cinnamon Pretzel Sticks, crushed (1 Fueling)
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp PB2 (1 Optional Snack)
1 packet Stevia - optional (1 Condiment)

Crush the pretzels by opening one side of the bag and squeezing the bag to form crumbs. In a small bowl, combine hot cocoa or brownie mix with 3 tbsp of water to form a paste. Add 1 tbsp PB2 and Stevia; stir until combined. Add the crushed pretzels to the mixture and stir making sure the pretzels are evenly coated. Drop the haystacks on a piece of foil or plate forming 6 piles. Freeze for at least 30 minutes to an hour.

I am down 1.4 lbs this week which is great considering my little problem with late night eating. I am finally substituting a cheese stick (sometimes 2!) with whatever I may be craving in the middle of the night. It seems to be working since I had a gain towards the beginning of the week and now I have a loss so I will take that! To celebrate my loss for the week, how about a sweet treat! Say... ice cream sandwiches! These ice cream sandwiches are made with peanut butter and cool whip so you get a delicious treat that will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! Enjoy this recipe!

If you are craving a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, go make this fueling hack right now! You will not regret it! This is absolutely delicious and super easy to make, especially when you are craving a delicious sweet treat!

You can find PB2 at your local grocery store. It isn't as sweet as regular peanut butter, but you can add sweetener to sweeten it up. Personally, I left out the sweetener because the hot cocoa and brownie are sweet enough for me. I made this with the hot cocoa and the brownie mix and I prefer the brownie mix, but it is just a matter of personal preference. No matter which one you choose, they are both delicious!! Enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

1 package Optavia hot cocoa or brownie mix (1 Fueling)
2 tablespoon PB2 (1 Snack)
1 packet of stevia or sweetener of choice (optional)

Mix 2 tablespoon of PB2 and stevia with 1 1/2 tablespoon of water until creamy. Set aside. 
In another container, mix hot cocoa or brownie with 3 tablespoons of water. 
Spread half of the choclate mixture over the bottom of a ramekin or silicone baking cup. 
Then spread PB2 over the chocolate bottom layer. 
Spread the rest of the hot cocoa mixture over the top of the PB2. 
Place in freezer for at least one hour.

Makes 1 Serving
1 Fueling, 1 Optional Snack and 1 Condiment (if using stevia)
