Hoot Protein Cake
Do What? Yeah crazy name, but here’s the deal….throughout my time on this great planet, friends & family have bestowed a number of suedo names upon me: “Amos”, “Aimz”, “Sutter”, “Qmy Suttez”, “SooterScooterSaladShooter”, to name a few, and “Lippy” being the most recent -courtesy of my Dream Team Trainers. My friends Tommy & Irene have called me “Hootnannie” for years and when chattin’ up this concoction, they christened it “Hoot Cake”. There ya go ;o)
Ingredients: Chocolate Protein Powder approx 1/2 cup, 2 scoops flax, 2 scoops wheat germ, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 5 dried prunes chopped, 7 egg whites, and 2 yolks. (Optional Garnish: oat meal and chocolate covered sunflower seeds…just to dress it up & make it festive! ;o) )
How To: Pre-Heat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl…separate your egg whites, but add 2 yolks back, add protein powder, flax, wheatgerm, and chopped nuts. Mix with spoon or hand mixer, just enough to blend all the ingredients together. Line a 9×9 inch cake pan with parchment paper, spray the paper with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper in the pan evenly. Take the cut up prune pieces and evenly space them in the mixture in the pan – pressing them down so that the mixture covers them. Sprinkle optional garnish on top and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
