What a beautiful sunset to see on the way home from a long day at work:
I made another GREAT protein snack that I think you guys should try! I definitely need to make it again so I can perFECT it, but I can say it was still delicious!
PROTEIN OATMEAL LOAF
(Adapted from Beverly International No Nonsense Magazine)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 scoops Fitmixer Vanilla “Sculpt” Protein (any vanilla protein would work)
- 5 egg whites
- 1 packet stevia
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients into a bowl.
- Transfer to a small greased loaf pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
- 405 calories
- 29 carbs
- 13 sugar
- 59 protein
One piece – I cut mine into 4 slices
- 101 calories
- 7 carbs
- 3 sugar
- 15 protein
Extra add ins (that I may try next time) could be nuts or coconut or even some peanut butter in the batter! Yum.
The protein powder kind of sunk to the bottom so next time I think I need either less liquid or more oats…But it still tasted great.
Pair with fruit or peanut butter for an awesome breakfast, snack, or post workout snack!
So I finished off a jar of crunchy peanut butter to have just the perfect breakfast yesterday! Nobody left behind in this jar!
And I’m not going to lie, I had some for dinner also… This time with melted Nikki’s Coconut Butter- Macadamia Nut flavor! If you haven’t tried Nikki’s- it will change your life 🙂
Have a wonderful Day. It’s Almost the Weekend!

Since I am doing a 30 Day Challenge of No Sweets I decided I would make a “protein dessert” that I can eat! You also know that I am a protein FREAK, so I love making snacks that include just that 🙂 I also make a lot of “balls” recipes, hmm…
The long waited….
