Not in the dietary plan at the moment, but will be later:
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, the eggs, cocoa, 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 (I dont know what size they are). 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).......
Peace and happiness,
