Apple Pear Puff
Erin Staunton Woodbury, @livingleanwitherin
8 egg whites, ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt, 3 packets granulated sugar substitute (I use Monk Fruit and Natvia), ½ tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp vanilla extract, ½ scoop protein powder (I use Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl), 1 cup of Modern Oats Apple Walnut Oatmeal, 1 cup gluten-free oats, 1 Asian pear (sliced thin), 1 red pear (sliced thin), 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a springform pan with coconut oil spray. Beat the egg whites on medium with a stand or hand mixer until bubbly and fluffy, but not to stiff peaks (about 2 minutes). Add the yogurt, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla and protein powder. Beat 1 minute. Slowly pour in the oats and mix for a few seconds. Pour the now fluffy mixture into your pan. Layer the Asian pear and red pear around the center, alternating the two. Sprinkle with a little more granulated Stevia. Place in oven for 15 minutes. Pull out and sprinkle with walnuts and a little shake of cinnamon. Return to oven for another 8-10 minutes. It should be set, but not dried out. You can top with Greek yogurt or whipped coconut milk from a can.
