This week’s recipe is geared for the pumpkin enthusiasts and lovers of fall. Dusty has created pumpkin cake bars that are pretty straight forward and easy on the macros.
- 1/2 cup (39 grams) quick oats
- 1 scoop (32 grams) whey protein powder (vanilla works well)
- 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) egg whites
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- Optional: 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Measure out oats, whey, and almond milk and combine by stirring in a pot. Cook on the stovetop on medium heat until most of the milk is absorbed and the oats become more “sticky”.
- Add in egg whites, a little bit at a time and stir with a whisk until all is well combined and cooked, about 1-2 minutes.
- Top with any kind of creative additive you can think of!
