How is your “getting back to the regular schedule” going? I found this week that after spoiling myself with sweets during the Christmas time, I am now craving them even more than before-so that’s bad news. The good news is that since we are back to regular life, Tom ate all my chocolates that I received as gifts, we can start to eat clean again. Well…at least we are trying.
I was searching for tasty recipes to satisfy my cravings. I found delicious protein bars from Bodybuilding website- tweak it a little bit and here it is (actually it’s gone already but at least no guilt what so ever).
Protein Apple Cinnamon Bars for your post workout mid-day snack (or if you are like me all day long snack)
½ cup of almond meal/flour
1 scoop of protein powder
You can taste it in your bar so make sure you like the taste of your powder. I choose the chocolate one.
2 egg whites
pinch of salt
1 tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg
1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese
¼ cup of stevia + tbsp of Agave
1 shredded apple
1 tsp of baking powder
1tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of ground flax seed
Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl and in a separate bowl mix:cottage cheese, apple, Agave, stevia, vanilla, egg whites, stir it together until well blended. Then pour wet mixture with the dry one, whisk until smooth. Bake at 350F in a prepared dish for about 30 minutes.
