I would love the recipe.
And, we Wooooooooooooosh in and deliver for the brother in the fight:
Chocolate whey powder-Oatmeal Bars (with Natural Peanut Butter)
3/4 cup Splenda or sugar if you prefer(or suite to taste)
2 scoops whey powder
1 cup Natural Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy, or what is preferred)
1/2 cup "Smart Balance" Butter
3 tsp of veggie oil (makes it moist, has good fats)
1 cup mashed bananas (optional
--try without first)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (real vanilla not the imitation)
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3-4 cups old fashioned oats (or the quick type would work)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, Stir in Splenda (or sugar), the eggs, whey, vanilla, NPB, oil, Smart balance butter, beating well, and set to one side.
In a separate bowl, sift together (healthy) flour, baking soda and salt. Grab the other bowl, and stir in creamed mixture. Stir in oats. Pour into prepared pan.
I use very small loaf pans and make mini breads out of them (But I would reccommend a 9x5 inch pan (with non stick spray), and then bake about 20 or so minutes (keep an eye on it, its is best when the middle is still a little soft and sort of liquidity. It will cool with a very moist middle. Additionally, enure you put the remaining in a plastic container with an air tight lid.......while hot (You know when it has cooled but is a little warm yet. This tends to keep the inner moist and sort of chewy).......
Drop just over one tablespoon on a cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. And, bake about 7 to 9 minutes at 350. Make sure the middle is a little soft (somewhat liquid, but not too much). This keeps in chewy and soft.
There ya go my brotha.
