Rhubarb, Ginger & Cinnamon Protein Treats

20160502_191824-1

 

If you like rhubarb then you will love these protein treats.  Inspired by a recipe from @love_lifting , I made some little changes to the original recipe to suit what ingredients I had in the cupboard!  I used strawberry flavoured whey protein but I would say the Cinnamon Danish flavour from http://www.myprotein.com would be even nicer (get it here )or Vanilla would work too!  Delicious to eat on their own or as a dessert with some Greek yogurt or homemade custard.

Ingredients

450g Rhubarb, chopped into small pieces (1 cm)

1 – 2 inch piece of fresh Ginger, grated

1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon

225g Natural or Greek Yogurt

100g Egg White

90g Rice Flour ( Buckwheat or Wholemeal Flour would work too)

1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

4 Scoops Whey Protein Powder, I used a Strawberry Flavour.

100 ml Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2 tsp Vinegar (or Cream of Tartar)

Method

Add all the ingredients, except for the egg whites, into a large bowl and mix well.

In a separate bowl beat the egg whites with the vinegar until stiff peaks are formed.

Gently fold the egg whites into batter and transfer to a lined baking tin (I used 9″x 9″).

Sprinkle some Cinnamon and bake for 45 mins at 170 degrees.

Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting into portions.
