These are really a high-protein, high-antioxidant, eat-anytime health boost. And they're still brownies!
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
- 3⁄4 cup oat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa

- 3⁄4 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese
- 5 tablespoons canola oil
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Spray baking dish with cooking spray.
- Mix 6 dry ingredients; set aside.
- Separately fork-froth the Ener-G & water; add vanilla.
- Combine egg whites, cheese, & canola in skillet over medium heat, stirring as cheese melts.
- Add the Ener-G mixture & vanilla.
- If eggs start to cook, remove from heat for a bit, stir more.

- Stir, pour into baking dish.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool 10-15 minutes before cutting.
- Makes 16 snack-sized brownies, 97 calories each, or 12 huge brownies, 130 calories each. In each 12-size brownie: 5 g protein, 2 g dietary carbs. (Two of these brownies = the amount of protein in a hamburger.).
- * The cheese is what binds, like sugar & egg yolks without the harm they do. You won't taste the cheese, promise. This technique can be used with muffins, cupcakes, quiche etc., and it's still just egg whites, fat free cheese, unsweetened cocoa (with 4,000 antioxidants per tablespoon), and healthy canola. If only we could get the whole country eating like this, ousting everything unhealthy.
- Let's start a revolution. A healthy food revolution!
I was a little nervous when I saw cheese in the ingredients but gave it a go and turns out I really like this recipe. Very chocolaty, moist, and a little chewy thanks to the oatmeal. I did change a few ingredients to what I had on hand. I used coconut flour instead of oat flour. And I don't know what Ener-G egg substitute is so I used a tablespoon each of flax meal and chia seeds with the 6 Tbs of water as my substitute. Everything else was just as the recipe said. I didn't taste the cheese and it was pretty fast and easy to make. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
