overwatch oatmeal cookies [pumpkin spice oatmeal cookies]


Fall’s here and you know what that means … PUMPKIN SPICE!

Last October, I created a pumpkin spice recipe inspired by Diablo III. This time around, I decided to focus on another Blizzard game.

With beta around the corner, it’s time for me to start cooking up some Overwatch inspired snacks. That’s right, we’re hopping aboard the Overwatch hype train! CHOO CHOO. But this time, the hype train is fueled by PUMPKIN PROTEIN COOKIES!


Cheers love, the cookies are here!



  1. 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
  2. 2 tablespoons of agave nectar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/2 cup, 1 teaspoon of almond milk
  5. 1/2 cup, 2 teaspoons of pumpkin puree
  6. 2 pumpkin pie Quest Bars
  7. 1 cup of oats
  8. 1 square of dark chocolate


Prep time for this recipe is about 20 minutes. Cook time is ~14 minutes. This recipe will make 9 cookies.

Each cookie contains: 6g of Protein, 4g of Fat, and 5.5g of Net Carbs


  1. Take your protein bars and cut away the orange coating. Reserve these pieces in a bowl for later.
  2. Cut the protein bar into pieces and place into a bowl. Add 1/2 cup of almond milk.
  3. Microwave the protein bar for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and stir. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Stir until it makes a smooth liquid.


  1. Put your protein mixture into a large bowl. Add in 1/2 of your oats and stir.
  2. Pour in your pumpkin puree, agave, and egg. Stir until combined.
  3. Add in your remaining oats and gently fold it into the rest of the mixture.
  4. Pre-heat your oven to 325° F.
  5. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking dish. Use a spoon to portion out your cookie dough mixture, and drop spoonfuls onto the baking dish.
  6. Gently press the cookies into disks.
  7. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.


  1. Add 1 teaspoon of almond milk and 2 teaspoons of pumpkin puree to your reserved protein bar coating. This will make your orange frosting.
  2. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave again for 30 seconds.
  3. Microwave your dark chocolate in the same manner.
  4. Place your orange frosting and dark chocolate in piping bags.
  5. Pipe the Overwatch symbol onto your cooled cookies.
  6. Eat!

GG WP, hero! Now you’re ready to save the world. 😀


Or, you can wait for your beta access and bake cookies like me. The world needs more cookies.

sgt. hammer’s BFG meatloaf [cheesy stuffed meatloaf]


A while back in an interview, I was asked by Vaeflare if I had any Heroes of the Storm themed recipes in the works. I responded with this:

“I plan to write some recipes about the heroes themselves. How awesome would it be to take a bite out of Sergeant Hammer’s BFG missile?!” 

I finally sat down and created Sgt. Hammer’s smiley BFG missle… but in MEATLOAF FORM! Spreadin’ the loooove!

If you’re not familiar with Sgt. Hammer’s Heroic Ability, “BFG” or Blunt Force Gun, it’s basically a smiley missile that launches across the map.



Now, this isn’t your ordinary meatloaf… This is a STUFFED meatloaf full of vegetables and cheesy goodness. It’ll explode with flavor!


This recipe has been kicked up with added protein in the form of crispy Quest Protein Chips!



  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. 1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
  4. 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  5. 2 tablespoons of smoked chipotle paste
  6. 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  7. 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  8. 5 mushrooms, chopped
  9. 1/4 cup of broccoli, chopped
  10. 1/4 of shredded pepper jack cheese
  11. 1 onion, 1/2 chopped and 1/2 left in reserve
  12. 3-6 pitted black olives
  13. 1 1/2 lb of lean ground beef (I used 90/10)
  14. 2 bags of Quest BBQ Protein Chips
  15. 1 red pepper


Prep time for this recipe is about 35 minutes. Total cook time is roughly 1 hour 10 minutes. This makes ~5 servings.

Each serving contains: 34g of Protein, 16g of Fat and 2g of Net carbs.


  1. Set a small pan on high heat. Add in your olive oil.
  2. Saute your chopped garlic, mushrooms and broccoli.
  3. Let them cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.


  1. In a large bowl, combine your worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, paprika and ground beef.
  2. Crush 1 bag of protein chips and add it to the meat mixture. Add in 1 tablespoon of chipotle paste. Stir to combine.
  3. Lay a large sheet of plastic wrap on a flat surface.
  4. Put your meat mixture on top of the plastic wrap. Squish the meat against the plastic wrap to make it flat.
  5. Place your sauteed vegetables on top of the flattened meat. Be sure to leave about an inch of room on each side. The ends will require about 2 – 3 inches of space.
  6. Grab the edge of the plastic wrap and begin rolling the meatloaf on top of itself.
  7. Place the meatloaf in a baking dish.


  1. Shape the meat into a “missle” shape — one side pointy, the other side flat.
  2. Cut small wedges out of the red pepper. These will be the “fins” of the missle. Place them in a circular formation on the flat end of the meatloaf missle.
  3. Mix your ketchup and chipotle paste. Spread this mixture over the pointed 1/2 of the missle.
  4.  Cut a mouth and eyes out of your remaining piece of onion. Place them on to the meatloaf.
  5. Slice pupils from your olives. Place them on top of the onion.
  6. Crush your remaining bag of chips. Sprinkle them over the un-sauced portion of the meatloaf.
  7. Cut an olive in half. Use a straw to poke a circular piece through the olive. These will be the rivets. Place them on the edge where the sauced portion touches the chip-coated portion.
  8. Pre-heat you oven to 360° F. Cook the meatloaf for about 50 minutes – 1 hour, or until done.
  9. Eat!


Now you’ll have a tasty and protein-packed meal that will keep you and your Heroes team fed. :)


It’s a very very smiley meatloaf…


See you in the Nexus, hero! 😀

But make sure you duck — never know when that BFG is going to fire from across the map!
