Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread (GF)

Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bars

Need a delicious and healthy Breakfast or Snack Idea?

These bars are where its at!! Plus, you can’t go wrong with pumpkin….ever.

Its not quite paleo, because there are little bit of oats and protein, it’s as close to Paleo in a delicious bar as I’m gonna get today… They are moist and delicious!!

This recipe is adapted from my friend Jaquelyn Kay, who adapted it from Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Bread.. so basically its a twice removed recipe from the star Jamie, herself ;)

All the amazing ingredients you can get from VITACOST. They have a freaking AWESOME selection of things like coconut flour and greens, etc. (watch out, my cart was full in about .5 seconds!!)

GLUTEN-FREE  

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly grease your pan with olive oil (9×9 square pan works best)

In small bowl combine: (set aside)1/3 cup Truvia and 2 tsp cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together  flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and protein powder.
In a medium bowl, whisk together egg and whites, coconut milk, honey, and pumpkin.

Pour a shallow layer of batter into the loaf pan (about 1/4 of the batter). Sprinkle heavily with half of the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining batter & cinnamon/sugar on top. Draw a knife through the batter to marble. Bake for 25 minutes or until knife comes out clean when you poke the center of bread.

Almond Coconut Oatmeal Bake (breakfast or dessert)

Oatmeal Bake (breakfast or dessert)

(revised recipe from Anna Slotnick)

Sometimes the old egg whites and oatmeal breakfast gets a little boring. Maybe you just don’t have time! This Oatmeal Bake you can make the night before and just grab a bar in the morning!

(or sometimes I like to have a bar after dinner for a little something sweet, but not too naughty!)

There are 3 combos I made:

Almond Coconut

Banana Walnut

Apple Pecan

They are all freakin’ awesome and you can create your own combos too!

 

Ingredients:

2 c. old fashioned oats (not quick oats)

4 scoops vanilla whey (I’ve used Dymatize Elite XT and Muscle Pharm Combat, both worked great)

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

lots of brisk shaking of cinnamon (2 itsp??)

4 egg whites (or 1/2 c liquid egg whites)

1.5 c cold water (or almond milk if you want)

3/4 c. Pumpkin (or you can use no sugar added applesauce)

Sweetener as desired—4-6 packets of splenda or truvia, 3-4 dropperfuls of lohan (or none)

 Then…. this is where the fun starts
OPTIONS–
Coconut & Almond (1/2 c. coconut, 1/4c. almonds chopped)
Apples & Pecans (1 whole apple chopped, 1/4 c. pecans chopped)
Bananas & Walnuts (1 whole banana sliced, 1/4 c. walnuts chopped)

 

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Mix together wet ingredients – except fruit, nuts, or coconut

3. Mix together dry ingredients in separate bowl.

4. Spray pan with non-stick baking spray or grease with coconut oil (we used a cake pan– 8×13)

5. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients – make sure it is distributed evenly. Then add nuts, half of the coconut or fruit. **if doing a banana, line the pan with banana slices

6. Pour mixture into pan and top with extra shredded coconut or extra apple slices

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes (make sure a knife/toothpick comes out clean in the center)

 

They taste amazing when still warm from the oven, but still are delicious when room temp or reheated;)

 

Cut into 1/4ths. (This makes 4 servings.)

Each serving has:

1/2 c. oats

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 egg white

little bit of: pumpkin, sweetener, spices, etc.

 

29 g carbs (less than 3g of sugar– from fruit and little bit of pumpkin), 33 g protein, 0.5-2g  g fat (depending on if using nuts or not)
