Peach Protein Frittata Recipe

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of NOW Foods.


While reviewing some of the great NOW Foods protein powders and other supplements I received in the mail, I decided to get creative and put a recipe together for everyone to enjoy.
With the help of a good friend, the recipe came out amazing! 

I absolutely love this dish and would eat it every day!!
Try it out and let me know what you think!

For this recipe I used a pea protein instead of the traditional whey you see more commonly.
Peas have no major allergens and are great for post-workout nutrition for athletes who may have difficulty supplementing with other types of protein. The NOW Sports pea protein I tried out tasted great and worked perfectly for us.


Here is the recipe:


•One carton or 4 cups of egg whites•3/4 C smashed slivered almonds•3 peaches•4 scoops of Now Sports Vanilla Toffee Pea protein powder•1/2 C Steel Cut oatmeal cooked for 2 min•1/2 tsp stevia•a little powdered vanilla


Lightly coat a pie dish with olive oil, crush almonds and arrange in a layer and put in oven under the broiler until toasted. Set oven temp to 350, arrange a layer of sliced peaches on top of the almonds and put back in the oven for 6 minutes.
Whisk all other ingredients and partially cooked oatmeal then slowly pour on top of baked peaches.
Cook for 40 minutes. Pull it out and put remaining peaches on top. 
Turn the oven off and put back in for 10 more minutes.




Now doesn't that look awesome?!?!
