This recipe comes from the 360Health Recipe Book. Mark Robinson from Team 360 is my dietician, nutritionist and the secret weapon who helped me lose the last of the weight I had put on whilst pregnant with the twins.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a total sugar junkie. And I don’t mean lollies and other super processed foods – my love is for fruit, think acai bowl after acai bowl! Now, under Mark’s guidance, I’ve cut the sugar out of my diet except for a cheat meal every two weeks or so (or the three days I ate leftover cake after the twins 1st birthday party – whoops!).
This former fruit bat is loving the payoff of quitting sugar though! Cellulite I never thought was going to leave is gone, I’m being told that my eyes are sparkling and my skin is clear and bright. Like anything in life, too much of a good thing isn’t good for you, even fruit!
If you’d like to see results like this yourself, you can work with Mark too. Book in for nutrition consultation for a discounted rate of $240 through Essence of Living. You will receive a personalised eating plan, measurements and follow up appointment. Contact us if you’re interested.
Now, onto the food!
I love this recipe because unlike many loaves (think sugary banana bread) this one keeps me feeling full and satiated! It’s the perfect on the go mid morning or afternoon snack if you’re a busy mum or business owner like me.
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup protein (I choose Ezyprotein vegan protein powder)
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 1/4 sugar free maple syrup
- 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 medium apple, peeled and diced
- 2 dates, pitted and chopped
Preheat oven to 175C. Mix everything together except the apple. Add the diced apple and stir evenly throughout the mixture. Line a bread loaf with baking paper, then pour the mixture into the pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned or a knife inserted comes out clean.
Slice into 8 pieces and enjoy!
