Introduction

As a nutrition major and girlfriend to a man with a bonafide chocolate and sugar addiction, I am realizing that though I can eat chia seeds and broccoli all day long, the average Joe needs healthy eating to be packaged a tad more sneakily. Is "sneakily" a word? Word or not, these little protein packed ninjas are officially boyfriend approved! So sneak 'em past those meat and potato appetites. Your waist lines will thank you. :) As a nutrition major and girlfriend to a man with a bonafide chocolate and sugar addiction, I am realizing that though I can eat chia seeds and broccoli all day long, the average Joe needs healthy eating to be packaged a tad more sneakily.

Ingredients

    .5c Soy Flour (Hodgson Mill)
    1c Old Fashioned Oats
    2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (Precision Engineered)
    4 tbsp Cocoa Powder (Ghiradelli)
    4 tbsp Stevia
    .5 tsp baking soda
    1c Unsweetened Applesauce
    .5c Water
    4 Egg Whites
    Cinnamon and salt to taste

Tips

Flavor Variations:

1) Chocolate Mocha: replace water with room temperature brewed coffee. Adding it while hot will curdle the egg whites before baking.

2) Apple Spice: omit cocoa powder and add nutmeg and ginger to taste

3) Autum Pumpkin: Replace half the unsweetened applesauce with canned 100% pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!). Add pumpkin pie spice to taste.

*Store these in the fridge or wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in freezer bags.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grind the oats in a food processor until they are as fine as possible. Combine ground oats, soy flour, whey protein powder, cocoa powder, baking soda, and cinnamon and salt in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine applesauce, egg whites, water, and stevia. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well. Pour mixture into lightly greased 6 muffin tin.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove and let cool in tin.
