BSI Entry: Nutty Stacks

Hi!

Are you having a good day? I am having a really nice Saturday!! I got up and taught Body Step and then took Body Pump. After, I went food shopping for the week. I came home and made Josh and I a nice lunch and have been mostly relaxing/doing house work since then. I was excited to put together my BSI entry this week! Amy selected Walnuts and I instantly knew what I was going to make! I started with inspiration from a Williams Sonoma recipe I had made previously and added some additional inspiration from the Clif Mojo bars to make these nutty stacks:

Ingredients:
2 egg whites
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
non stick spray
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup roughly chopped pecans
1 cup smashed pretzels
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with aluminum foil. Spray aluminum with non stick spray.

Mix egg whites, brown sugar and vanilla until there are no more lumps. Add in all remaining ingredients until well mixed. Scoop rounded tablespoons full of mix onto baking sheets (like cookies). Bake for 15-16 minutes. Once cooled, peel nutty stacks off foil and enjoy!

Sounds like a great Saturday! Know anygood aerobic DVDs for advanced cardio workouts in the kickboxing/ step arenas? I've been looking to update my Billy Blanks and Amy Bento DVDs.
