Continuing on with the egg white recipes! Here is another great protein packed "treat" that is super easy to make and can be made into endless variations as well. The base recipe is for a simple "cake" made with chick peas, cottage cheese and egg whites! The base recipe is 200 calories and packed with 22 grams of protein. From here you could add in anything you want to the cake (banana, berries,  carrot, zucchini, peanut butter) or cook it as is and add to the top once it comes out of the oven! 

Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup chick peas
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 tbls cocoa
  • 1 tbls coconut flour


**I use coconut flour as it is a great substitute for wheat or regular flour. Coconut flour is being used a lot more these days in tons of recipes. It only requires around 1/3 of what regular flour is typically used. So if you want to use regular flour, I would suggest you would use between 2-3 tbls of regular flour. If anyone out there makes this recipe with regular flour, please leave a comment below and let me know how it turns out! 

                           

Directions: 

  • Spray a ramekin or small dish and preheat oven to 400'
  • Use your blender or magic bullet to puree all of the ingredients together. 
  • Pour into dish and cook for 30 minutes
  • Let cool and either eat right out of the dish or put in a bowl with other goodies.





My sister took the recipe and tried it at home before we finalized it and posted it here. She didn't have a handy one dish ramekin like I did so she used a loaf pan. She also topped with pan fried banana's and coconut peanut butter. I would love to see your creations and pictures! Send them to me and I will share other creative ideas as you make them!


Also, another handy trick is to freeze your leftover chick peas so that you can have a bag of frozen chick peas available to you when you want to whip this recipe together!
