After a weekend of less than perfect eating (enter friend’s AND grandfather’s birthday celebrations), I was craving nothing but goodness today. Goodness as in good for the body, not as in delicious-tasting-goes-straight-to-your-hips goodness. But why can’t we have both delicious and good-for-the-body goodness? Oh we can.
I have been
stalking surfing this girl’s blog lately and have come across some pretty appealing recipes. Okay, she has a great bod too and sometimes I catch myself spending more time looking at her abs 😉 There was a great recipe for what she calls “egg puffs“. I hate eggs. Actually, I despise eggs. They have to be well hidden in something for me to eat them. There are a few recipes, though, where me and nature’s most complete protein have gotten along. This is one of them.
Cinnamon “Sugar” Egg Puffs (adapted from Vanilla Bean Lean)
Ingredients: egg whites (I used a cup of carton egg whites), cinnamon, 0-cal sweetener, xanthan gum (optional – I only used 1/8 tsp)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Add your xanthan gum (helps keep the shape of the puffs while baking), cinnamon and sweetener to taste (I just kept adding/tasting until it reached yumminess factor 😀 )
Enjoy each protein packed cloud of joy!
These were sooooo good!! I ate every.single.one! But you know what?? It’s okay because they are nothing but good for you! The stats for all of them – 120 calories and 28 grams of protein. So there. I can eat a whole batch of treats and feel absolutely no guilt!

Go make these. Now.
