Ingredients:

3 cups whole-wheat flour

4 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray an 11” x 17” baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, mix flour, protein powder, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

In a medium-large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 10 seconds, or until melted. Add almond milk, egg whites/substitute, and maple extract. Mix until uniform.

Add milk-egg mixture to the large bowl, and mix until uniform.

Gently fold in 1/2 cup blueberries. Transfer to the baking sheet, and smooth out the surface.

HG Storage Tips: These will stay fresh in the fridge for about a week. To freeze 'em, tightly wrap each fully cooled piece in foil or plastic wrap. Then place 'em in a sealable container or bag, seal, and freeze. To thaw one, unwrap and place on a microwave-safe plate. Cover or wrap in a paper towel, and microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes.
