Soooo you may or may not know that the peanut butter marshmallow whey protein by cellucor is my all time favorite protein powder evvvarrrrr. Well last week I decided to branch out and I got the cinnamon swirl as well as the whipped vanilla flavors by cellucor. Now my new obsession is the cinnamon swirl flavor O_O So. Good. I had a scoop post-workout this morning on the drive home and then made these as well, ha. Never too much cinnamon (well, one time…… :x). I burnt my wrist making these D; so I hope you enjoy the recipe!
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 scoop cinnamon swirl whey protein (cellucor)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 stevia packet (Optional)
- 1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp walnut extract
- 1/3 cup chopped pear
- 1 TBSP chopped walnuts
First grind the oats to form oat flour. Then mix the oats with the next 4 ingredients (dry ingredients). Add the next three ingredients (wet ingredients) and blend until thick and creamy. Finally, stir the pear and walnuts into the batter with a fork. Cook on a medium/low heat in a pan sprayed with a nonstick spray. After 5-6 minutes, flip, and cook another 4-5 minutes. SHOO-WOP, DONE. Flufffyyyyy!
I topped mine with unsweetened coconut shreds, caramelized pear slices, and sugar free syrup. To caramelize the pear slices, I just cook it in a pan with a tbsp of sugar free syrup and dashes of cinnamon until they’re soft :)
