I am always on the look out for an easy post workout snack that is high in protein, but not in sugar and calories. Now add that I don’t want any nasty additives, fake colors, or ingredients I can’t pronounce and there aren’t very many options left. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own! This recipe is easily adaptable and you can add, swap, or leave out ingredients. This just happens to be one recipe that I liked the flavor and nutritional value. Alright, here we go!
Bake 350 for 15 minutes
2 egg whites
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/8 cup honey
2 1/4 cup steel cut oats
1 3/4 cup rice cereal
3/4 cup powdered milk
3 scoops whey protein powder-any kind you like!
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup PB2-or regular peanut butter!
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
First Preheat the oven to 350 degrees! In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients.
Mix everything together well, and set that aside.
Then in a mixing bowl with a whisk type attachment whip your egg whites together until they are frothy. I don’t know if this is too important, if you don’t have a whisky thing then don’t worry about whipping the egg whites, it’s not too crucial.
Whip until the egg whites look like this…then add the rest of the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl. Once the wet ingredients are added slowly add in the bowl of dry ingredients. The mixture should look something like this…
Spread the entire mixture in a sprayed or greased 9×13 pan and pack it down slightly, it will be pretty sticky so this is a little tricky.
Pop them in the oven for about 15 minutes, or the ‘ol until a toothpick comes out clean trick. I then drizzled them with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter for a little extra flavor. Yum!
I keep them in the fridge for 2 or 3 weeks and just bring one with me to the gym for a perfect pick-me-up or after workout snack. Enjoy!
