Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Competitor Carb Load
I ended up with two ways to enjoy this meal - a pie and a plate of cookies ;-) NOM NOM NOM!
Competition Carb Pie
1 cup Oatmeal (plain)
6 oz baked Sweet Potato (no skin)
4 oz banana, mashed
1 Tbsp butter
Water to moisten
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (pure)
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix the sweet-potato & mashed banana together until well combined. Add the spices and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk the oatmeal & baking powder.
Stir all ingredients together, then add water if needed, just until it's moistened.
Pour into greased pie pan & bake for 30-40 minutes.
Less baking makes a "baked oatmeal" dish, more baking creates a "cookie".
GIANT COOKIE OPTION:
Instead of baking as a pie, roll into balls and cook on cookie sheet... This turned out to be my favorite way of carb loading ;-)
You can also replace the butter with peanut butter or almond butter.
