There’s nothing like a brownie when you need a chocolate fix. Fortunately, these also provide some protein and nutrition from whole oats and peanut butter. Just goes to show you that eating “clean” doesn’t mean you have to give up desserts or treats completely.
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/2 c. honey
- 6 heaping scoops (200 g) chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 c. nonfat milk
- 1 c. natural peanut butter
- 2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
Mix the peanut butter and honey in a bowl, microwave on high for 100 secs. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together. This is tough to mix and it takes time. If you don’t have the tools you may want to cut the oatmeal a bit to make it easier to work. Preheat oven to 320o F. Smooth into 13x9 tray and bake for 20 minutes. Oven times may vary, use the toothpick test. Cut into 20 equal bars and wrap and store in fridge.
