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.
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)
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.
I got 8 servings from this recipe. Each serving is equal to 103 calories, Carbs 14.4g, Fat 1.2g, Protein 8.8g.
Enjoy and remember to keep sharing the love !
