8 egg whites
1 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal, dry
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp + 1 tsp (or 4 tsp) cooking oil
2 tsp baking powder
28 grams plain or vanilla protein powder
I was tinkering with this recipe, and it may not be quite right yet for "perfect" zone balance, but I baked these up for my kids and they devoured them! Only comment was that they were not very sweet (which is just fine with me!).. Just wanted to post so that it was recorded; I can always come back and make adjustments as needed.
Grind oats until floured. Add baking powder and protein powder, set aside.
Blend wet ingredients in a blender-eggs, cottage cheese, vanilla, oil. Then combine flour mixture and the batter, mix just until blended. Pour into muffin tin, and then spoon in fresh or frozen blueberries into each cup. Top off with chopped walnuts.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 min until they begin to turn golden brown. Knife or toothpick inserted should come out clean.
A nice option would be to add some cinnamon and/or nutmeg.
For those who really can't eat them without some sweetness, you could add some splenda before baking.
