Head to the Christmas party armed with good nutrition that tastes so good, you’ll swear you are cheating!
You will need:
Non-fat, no-stick spray.
1 cup oat flour (ground oatmeal found in the health section of your grocery store)
2 scoops vanilla whey protein (look for a low sugar, low fat and low carb variety, like Allmax Isoflex)
2 tsp cinnamon (heaping)
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
4 egg whites
¾ cup Splenda (or alternate no cal sweetener)
2 bottles of 4 oz. of baby food carrots (instead of shredded carrots) can also use packs
4 oz. of water (you can use an empty baby jar to measure)
1 cup quick cooking oats (optional for added carbs and energy)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 glass pyrex dish with non-stick butter spray.
In a large bowl combine: flour, protein, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and allspice. Stir with a fork until mixed.
In a medium bowl mix: egg whites, Splenda, water and baby food until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix well.
Finally, fold in the 1 cup quick cooking oats (optional) and stir until just combined.
Pour batter into the glass pyrex dish and spread evenly. Bake 28 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool and cut into 16 pieces – 4 x 4 each.
