Sweet Strawberry Shortycakes
1 cup sliced strawberries
2/3 cup quick oats, dry
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
6 oz container fat free, unsweetened Greek yogurt
1/2 cup fat free Cool Whip
1.5 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 packet stevia or Splenda
How to Prepare
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine oats, egg whites, vanilla, protein powder and salt in mixing bowl. Whisk together well with fork. Spoon evenly into 6-cup muffin pan, lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Put in oven and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until “cakes” are firm and lightly browned. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
- While cakes are baking, combine yogurt, cool whip, protein powder and stevia in mixing bowl. Whip together well with spatula or spoon until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
- Grab a bowl! Layer 3 cakes, half of the yogurt mixture and half of the strawberries until you have a strawberry shortycake stack! Grab a spoon and dig in…yum! (Save the other half for later)
