Ingredients


fat free butter flavored cooking spray

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 cups oatmeal
(We used Quaker Oats.)

3/4 cup Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

4 scoops protein powder
(We used GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Flavor.)

1/4 cup brown sugar

7 egg whites

(Vegetarians can substitute 1/2 cup silken tofu, soft for the egg whites.)

1/4 cup sugar free orange marmalade
(We used Smuckers Sugar Free Orange Marmalade.)

2 tsp. imitation butter extract

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tsp. pumpkin spice

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. no sodium salt
(We Used No Salt Sodium Free Salt.)

1 (15 oz.) can pure pumpkin
(NOT Pumpkin Pie Mix!)


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the trays of an 8-mini-loaf baking pan with fat-free cooking spray.

2. Combine the first 5 ingredients, whole wheat flour through brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir them together.

3. In a blender combine the next 9 ingredients, egg whites through no-sodium salt. Blend them together for about a minute.

4. Pour the contents of the blender over the dry mixture and start stirring. Then add the can of pumpkin and keep stirring until thoroughly combined.

5. Divide the mixture evenly into 8 trays of the mini-loaf pan.

6. Bake for 20-25 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
