I am on a mission to find a protein bar that’s delicious, but doesn’t use soy as a main ingredient (personal choice to cut back, do your own thing). Welp, that’s not as easy or cheap as I’d like so I decided to try and make my own.
I looked up a few recipes and used Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bars as inspiration.
Clean Coffee Cake Recipe
1 c oat flour (I blended oats myself because I had them)
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used whey)
1/4c stevia or sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites
1/2c plain greek yogurt
1/2c milk of your choice (cow/almond/soy/cat)
Plus – cinnamon
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8×8 dish with non-stick spray. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Combine thoroughly.
Bake for 26 minutes or until top is set. Let cool (optional because you know I didn’t do that) and cut into 9 pieces. Or 2 – one for me, one for you.
This “clean” coffee cake recipe is also gluten free and packed with protein!
I topped my piece with peanut butter and it was melty and delicious on top. Mmmmm.
I stored the rest in the fridge and popped 2 in the toaster oven today for a snack. They are still delicious! You know how sometimes healthy baked goods get weird later – these didn’t. Win.
Question: When was the last time you had cake?
If it’s been longer than a week, you’re doing it wrong
