Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread


Let’s not lie.  I’ve never actually made these but my mom does all the time for me and they are amazing!  Definitely one of my favorite choices for breakfast or post-workout snack.

Jamie Eason's Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread


Ingredients
1/3 cup Ideal (Xylitol)
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 cup oat flour + 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Ideal (Xylitol) or 1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw
2 egg whites
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (Almond Breeze)
1/3 cup or one 4oz jar of baby food applesauce and 1/4 cup low sugar vanilla yogurt (optional)


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8x8 inch Pyrex dish with non-stick spray.

In a small bowl combine (set aside): 1/3 cup Ideal (Xylitol) and 2 teaspoon cinnamon.

In a large bowl combine (whisk together): 1-1/2 cup oat flour + 2 scoops vanilla whey protein, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 cup Ideal (Xylitol) or 1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw.

In a medium bowl combine (whish together and add to large bowl): 2 egg whites, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (Almond Breeze), 1/3 cup or one 4oz jar of baby food applesauce and 1/4 cup low sugar vanilla yogurt (optional).

Poor a shallow layer of batter into the loaf pan (about 1/4 of the batter).

Sprinkle heavily with half of the cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon/sugar on top.

Draw a knife through the batter to marble.  Bake for 24 to 28 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes.  Bread will be dense.
