Ingredients


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup dry oats
(We used Quaker Oats.)

1 1/3 cups Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

2 scoops (2/3 cup) protein powder
(We used GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Flavor.)

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

2 large egg whites

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

4 cups frozen cherries, thawed and pitted


1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the trays of an 8-mini-loaf baking pan with fat-free cooking spray.

2. Stir together the first seven ingredients, flour through salt. Then mix in the egg whites, vegetable oil and cherries.

3. Divide the mixture evenly into 8 trays of the mini-loaf pan. (Each mini-loaf is composed of approximately 1/3 cup mixture.)

4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from mini-loaf pan and serve.

Yield: 8 Servings
