I always enjoy Jamie Eason’s Protein Bar recipes!  So this week I decided to give this one a try because I love cinnamon and I really needed to switch things up a bit!  So this is now my afternoon or morning snack with my cup of tea!  Guilt free and complete because it has my complex carb and my protein in one meal!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!

Ingredients

1/3 cup Ideal (Xylitol)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cups oat flour + 2 scoops vanilla whey protein

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup Ideal (Xylitol) or ¼ cup Stevia in the Raw

egg whites

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (Almond Breeze)

1/3 cup or 1 4oz jar of baby food applesauce and ¼ cup low sugar vanilla yogurt (optional)

Directions

 

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8 X 8 inch Pyrex dish with non-stick spray.

In small bowl combine: (set aside) 1/3 cup Ideal (Xylitol), 2 tsp cinnamon.

In a large bowl combine: (whisk together) 1 1/2 cups oat flour + 2 scoops vanilla whey protein, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup Ideal (Xylitol) or ¼ cup Stevia in the Raw.

In a medium bowl combine: (whisk together & add to large bowl) 2 egg whites, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (Almond Breeze), 1/3 cup or 1 4oz jar of baby food applesauce and ¼ cup low sugar vanilla yogurt (optional).

Pour a shallow layer of batter into the loaf pan (about 1/4 of the batter).

Sprinkle heavily with half of the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining batter & cinnamon/sugar on top.

Draw a knife through the batter to marble. Bake for 24 to 28 min. Let cool for 10 min. Bread will be dense.
