Ingredients

    1 tbsp Cinnamon, ground
    0.50 tsp Salt

    0.33 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap
    3 tsp Baking Powder
    0.33 cup, unpacked Brown Sugar
    6 tbsp All Whites Liquid Egg White (3 Tbsp=1 large egg's white)
    2 cup Quaker Oats Old fashioned Oat meal
    0.33 cup Great Value Greek Plain Nonfat yogurt 1cup/227g=1 serv

    0.5 cup pieces or chips Walnuts

Tips

NOTE: I think REAL brown sugar totally makes this cake taste like the real deal vs. a protein "concoction". The topping is "crunchyĒ - a nice cinnamon crumb topping. I choose to not use much added sugar in my diet, but when I do have sugar - I go for the REAL stuff ; ) Of course, you can use your sweetener of choice - it will change the taste, texture and nutrition stats.
Recipe calls for 1/4 to 1/2 cup of walnuts and their optional. Changing this amount would change the nutrition info


Directions

* I like to grind half of the oats coarsely into flour; use the other half whole

Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar together then set aside for the topping.
Before adding the wet ingredients to the dry: Mash the banana in with the dry ingredients with a potato masher or a fork - OR
just mash the banana well before adding to the mixture
MIX all the ingredients - the batter will be the consistency of pancake batter. Start with 1/3 cup of water and judge whether
you need a bit more since protein powders do vary in consistency. I typically need just slightly less than 1/2 cup of water.
Line an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Lightly grease with coconut oil or a spray of cooking
spray. IMPORTANT! Donít skip this step; the cake will remove much much easier from the pan if you line the pan with foil or
parchment. I use foil.
Pour 1/2 of the batter into the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the reserved sugar/cinnamon mixture on top. Pour the rest of the batter
into the pan. Top evenly with the rest of the cinnamon sugar.
Bake @ 350 for 25-50 minutes. Ovens vary - you may need slightly less or more time. I typically need 45 minutes baking time. I
usually take it out of the oven after 30 minutes & cut into 8 squares/slices. I put it back into the oven to continue baking. This
allows the inside to bake thoroughly. Itís a dense bread-cake so it does take a bit longer to bake. Let cool completely. Store in
air-tight container. If you donít eat it all within a day - store it in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
