Protein brownies

preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4 egg whites
7-8 oz. berry babyfood (I use stage 2 Gerber Apple Blueberry)
1/2C oat flour
3 teasp. unsweetened cocoa or 2 cap fulls of chocolate extract (Watkins)
2 cap fulls of vanilla extract
1/4 cup Ideal brown sugar (or Truvia- maybe a little less)
2 teasp. baking powder
1/3C water
4 scoops Chocolate VCore protein from Complete Nutrition (or any whey protein)

In a large mixing bowl combine: egg whites, babyfood, extracts, water and sugar substitute.  Then mix in the protein powder until all of the lumps are smooth, next add the oat flour and last the baking powder.
Spray an 8x8 square baking dish ( I use a glass baking dish.)
bake at 350 for 25minutes (give or take 5 minutes, until the center is done.)

These must be stored in the fridge.  So, after they are mostly cool, I cut them into 9 pieces and individually wrap them with plastic wrap and store them in the fridge or freezer.  I hope you enjoy these as much as our family does.  When I have one the next day, I like to warm it in the microwave for a bit and put a little natural chunky peanut butter on top... but I'm a PB lover!  My husband prefers them plain because he doesn't like them too sweet or rich!

Oh and by the way, I found a recipe similar on the Internet about a year ago (sorry, don't know where to give someone credit!)  but I've tweaked the recipe several times until they are "prefect!"  That's why I put name brands of the ingredients to be more specific.  I noticed when I used substitutions (like different protein powder) they did not turn out as good.
