I will warn you though, you're going to feel guilty when you eat it because it's SO good you won't believe it's good for you!

Enough of the chit-chat, let's get that recipe!

In a large bowl combine:

In a medium bowl combine:

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond or coconut milk (for added protein use Fairlife or Organic Valley Fat Free milk)

  • 4oz. Greek yogurt (or 1 small container of unsweetened apple sauce)

In a small bowl combine and set aside:

  • 1/3 cup of Monk Fruit Sweetener or Stevia

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup oats

Optional icing:

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.

  2. Spray an 8x8 Pyrex dish with non-stick spray.

  3. Add the wet ingredients (medium bowl) into the dry ingredients (large bowl) and combine until mixed well, making sure not to stir too much.

  4. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the dish.

  5. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cinnamon/sugar mixture in the small bowl on the layer.

  6. Pour the remaining batter into the dish and cover with the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture.

  7. Take a knife and swirl it through the batter to create a marbled affect.

  8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  9. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then drizzle on the icing (optional).

  10. Store in an airtight container for 7 days. Best when heated!
