Ingredients


6 large egg whites

1 cup fat free milk

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

4.5 oz. (about 16) pitted plums, chopped

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

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

2 cups Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

1/3 cup walnuts, finely chopped

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp. allspice, ground

OPTIONAL Lemon Topping

4 oz. fat free cream cheese

2 Tbsp. Splenda or Stevia sweetener
(We used the Splenda box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

2 Tbsp. lemon peel, finely grated


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 five wet ingredients, egg whites through plums. In a seperate bowl mix together the eight dry ingredients, flour through allspice.

3. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Once it's thoroughly combined, divide the mixture evenly into 8 trays of the mini-loaf pan. (Each mini-loaf is composed of approximately 1/2 cup mixture.)

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

5. While the bars are cooling, mix together the cream cheese, sweetener and lemon. Spread 3/4 of a tablespoon over each bar for a creamy topping.

Yield: 8 Servings

This is a Freezer Friendly Recipe!

Freeze bars for easy re-heating later. Make sure they're tightly sealed inside freezer safe bags or containers.

Do NOT put the lemon glaze on top if you intend on freezing them!

Microwave each bar for approximately 45 seconds to 3 minutes, depending on microwave strength. Cover the bar with a damp paper towel to keep it softer.
