RECIPE: "Zucchini Bread" Protein Bars

As promised, here is my recipe for "Zucchini Bread" Protein Bars.  Such a tasty treat.  A good snack choice whether you're contest dieting or just trying to eat clean.
 
Ingredients:
Non-stick cooking spray
2 medium zucchini, peeled and cooked (steamed) until tender.
1 cup brown rice flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I like Dymatize Elite 100% Whey Protein).
3 egg whites
3/4 cup Splenda, granulated. (or Pyure Bakeable Blend - stevia sweetener*)
1/2 cup low-fat organic cottage cheese with live, active cultures.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8" x 8" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Cut zucchini into smaller pieces measuring about 1-1/2 inch in length.  Place zucchini pieces in blender and puree, then set aside. 
 
In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, allspice, nutmeg, and protein powder.
In another bowl, combine egg whites, Splenda, cottage cheese, and pureed zucchini. Then add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
 
Pour batter into the baking dish and spread evenly. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool completely and then cut into 9 pieces.
 
Recommendations:
1)  Use egg whites separated from whole eggs, rather than pre-packaged liquid egg whites.  I've found the consistency of the protein bars turns out better when I use whites from whole eggs.
2)  I use organic cottage cheese with live, active cultures.  This avoids the concern that physique competitors have regarding dairy consumption and then bloating from lactose.  The live, active cultures utilize the lactose sugar while the product sits on the shelf, so by the time you eat it, the sugar content is negligible.
3)  Try ground cloves intead of allspice for a different taste.  I really like it!
4)  You may choose to alternatively use 3/4 teaspoon of stevia extract instead of the granulated Splenda.

* Update (11/26/12): Just tried Pyure Bakeable Blend stevia sweetener instead of Splenda in this recipe.  Turned out FANTASTIC!

If it is not for profit, costs are still a necessary consideration, and cost estimates must be as accurate as possible. Think about the costs of fitness equipment, the space you will be using and manpower for upkeep of equipment. Thanks.

This zucchini bread is not really bread as we usually think of bread. It is sweet and more akin to a coffee cake. It serves well as dessert with milk or coffee. I love it...

Cosmetics (colloquially known as cosmetics or make-up) are care ingredients used to improve the overall look or smell of one's human human body.

Cover-up is commonly used by cosmetic-conscious men. Cosmetics manufacturers launch cosmetics especially designed for men, and men are progressively using such items.

The Make-Up mixed garage area stone, spirit, and a self-styled freedom theology to create a new category they known as "Gospel Yeh-Yeh". This design led to an focus on stay activities and connections between the team and their viewers, integrating the viewers into the activities as a "fifth member", developing what one critic described as ""highly dynamic and participatory stay shows".
