This cinnamon swirl bread is AMAZING. I know, it’s a “healthy” treat, which always seems to ruin my idea of how good something can really be. But this stuff…so delicious and so NOT bad for you! What’s not to love??

  2. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of your sweetener and the cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together: wheat flour, vanilla whey protein, baking powder, salt, and the remaining sweetener (1/4 cup)
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together: egg whites, almond milk, and applesauce. Then add and mix in with the large bowl ingredients.
