These are packed with protein and so simple to make with only a handful of ingredients. I often have a carton of egg whites in the fridge which I add to a range of recipes as well as making egg white omelettes. They are an easy way to add extra protein to any dish. These are delicious cold as a snack if you have any leftovers. For an indulgent treat I have served these with a chocolate sauce but they would be equally delicious with fruit and additional yogurt.
