1 pinch salt

Banana Cream Filling:
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 cup LACTAID® Fat Free Milk

1/4 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 teaspoon banana flavor
2 bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions:
Makes: 5 servings.
Serving Size: 3 prepared angel bites.

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly oil a 13×11 inch-baking sheet. Set aside.
2 – Make Angel Bites: Place egg whites in a medium mixing bowl. Whip on high speed using an electric beater or wire whisk until frothy.
3 – Add Splenda® Granulated Sweetener, vanilla and salt. Mix on high speed until medium-stiff peaks form (approximately 20 to 30 seconds).
4 – Spoon rounded tablespoons of egg white mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Cool.
5 – Make Filling: Place egg substitute, LACTAID® Fat Free Milk, vanilla and light butter in a small saucepan.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken and bubble (approximately 3 to 4 minutes).
6 – Remove filling from heat and add banana flavor. Stir until well mixed. For an extra creamy filling, pour into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Cover and process until very creamy (approximately 10 seconds). Pour filling into a bowl and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or until ready to serve.
