Millionaire shortbread (or chocolate caramel squares as they are otherwise known) are one of my favourite treats. This recipe uses healthier ingredients without any refined sugar with the added benefit of protein from one of my favourite vanilla flavoured powders by Natural Nutrients which I picked up from OrganicAthleteLifestyle.com
This is hands down the BEST protein sponge cake I have EVER made (hence the name) do not try to remove/amend the ingredients (unless it's where I have added substitutions) as they are all there for a reason & doing so will probably result in a dry sponge, which is what I ended up with literally hundreds of times whilst trying to perfect this recipe. I challenge anyone to try this cake & not be truly shocked that it is a healthier version. Happy baking!
On a low carb diet? I have answered all your pizza based dreams with my low carb protein pizza! I've used flaxmeal to make the base and replaced the sugar laden sauces with Blend Bro's sugar free alternative for a healthy way to enjoy this takeaway favourite!
Craving Mexican food but could do without the copious amounts of fat, sugar and calories that comes with it? Don't worry, I've got the answer to all your Mexican food based dreams with my Healthy, Low Fat (and high protein!) Burritos. Although I've served the mince in wraps to make burritos, its also fantastic with rice or even noodles! Give it a try & let me know what you think.
These cookies need no introduction, just look at that golden crumb and shiny dark chocolate. But these are not any old cookies. Each one contains an impressive 9g of protein thanks to Ascent Native Fuel Whey Protein Powder! I suggest you make a batch of these then find a dark room to hide in whilst you polish off the lot!
Rich chocolate cheesecake with a crumbly biscuit base topped with fresh juicy cherries & drizzled with smooth dark chocolate. Sounds like a seriously tasty way to ruin your diet doesn't it. Well this recipe is completely macro friendly! SAY WHAT?! Yep, with a few healthier substitutions I've created this epic recipe with thanks to Ascent Native Fuel Micellar Casein Protein Powder and my genius brain :-p
Crispy chicken tenders are usually something that have to be saved for a treat, but with my recipe you can tuck in any time you like! I've used UFIT's new BBQ flavoured high protein crisps as the coating, then dunked them into Blend Bro's incredibly authentic but entirely sugar free BBQ sauce - because everyone knows you can't have a chicken tender without drowning it in sauce, which is usually the most unhealthy part! This recipe is so incredibly simple even those who don't think they can cook (or kids!) can do!
Lasagna is a family favourite, but it can be seriously heavy on calories. My version is just as tasty, but is up to half the number of calories per portion! In order to achieve this I've made a few tweaks to the recipe which includes using Blend Bro's new sugar free ketchup (yes I said ketchup!) which adds a really rich tomato flavour to the meat sauce, without all the sugar. Dish it up for you & your family & I promise you they won't notice the difference!
Fish fingers were a favourite of mine as a child, who am I kidding they are a favourite of mine as an adult. I ALWAYS had them with loads of ketchup (is there any other way of eating fish fingers?!) but standard ketchup is loaded with sugar, which is why I now use Blend Bros Sugar Free Ketchup which tastes just the same without any of the sugar! Whether you are on a low carb plan or not, these fish fingers are delicious and each portion contain over 30g of protein!
Sweet, sticky BBQ pulled pork is usually something that is saved for cheat day, but not anymore! You can make your own healthier version using my recipe which uses Blend Bros Sugar Free BBQ sauce. I like to serve mine in little gem lettuce leaves with lots of topping options like smashed avocado, spicy salsa, Greek yoghurt and spring onion. It's also great in a wrap or served with some Mexican rice. Give it a try & let me know what you think.
Do you love a Nandos? Who doesn't! If so, you'll LOVE this recipe. What you'll love even more is that it's super simple but seriously delivers in the taste department. I've made the rice from scratch, but to save on time (& a whole lot of effort) I've used Blend Bros fab new sugar free Peri Peri sauce which I'm a huge fan of. You can tailor this recipe to your taste so don't worry if you're not a fan of spice, you can omit the chilli (you big pansy!)
Sweet & sticky blueberry & banana bread enriched with protein without ANY fat and no added sugar, this baby sells itself. Not only is it seriously delicious it's also so quick and simple to make. Give it a try & let me know what you think.
This recipe is SO simple, the most technical part - the sauce has been taken care of by using Blend Bros awesome sugar free BBQ sauce. It's so authentic tasting, not like so many other sugar free sauces that just taste like chemicals! A normal portion of BBQ chicken wings would contain at least 15g of sugar, mine contains less than 5g in the entire portion!
I've combined two 4 of my favourite things in the recipe. Oats, protein, white chocolate & raspberries. But I've left out the usual butter, sugar and syrup you'd usually find in traditional flapjacks. Instead I've sweetened them with Bodybuilding Warehouse White Chocolate & Raspberry Whey Protein which is SO good & also chunks of their new Warrior Crunch bars which take them to another level! Don't worry if you don't have these, you can sub the bars for white chocolate chips, however I urge you to try them, some of the best protein bars I've ever had (and I've tried ALOT!).

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Snap Chat you'll already know I LOVE anything peanut related, and what goes well with peanuts? Chocolate of course! Even if you're not a vegan you'll love these super easy Chocolate & Peanut Vegan Protein Bars which I made using Good Hemp's fantastic range of hemp based products.
Personally I am not vegan, but I like to create recipes that everyone can enjoy which is how these Cranberry, Cashew & Hemp Raw Vegan Bars came to be! I used Good Hemp's fantastic products for this recipe. I'm a big fan of their range as I find it doesn't have such a strong earthy taste that you can get with other brands. These bars are ideal as a post workout treat or a healthy snack throughout the day - enjoy!
This Banana & Hemp High Protein Banana Bread is sweet, moist and delicious, just the way a banana bread should be! Rather than protein powder which can dry baked goods out, Good Hemp's High Protein Flour adds a great source of hemp protein without leaving you with a nasty dry sponge. It also means that this recipe is perfect for those that don't want to buy protein powders or who prefer to exclude dairy from their diet. It's also great for using up banana's which have seen better days!
These delicious blondies are free from flour, sugar and butter but are packed with protein. They are also insanely delicious and super simple to make. Fool your friends (and yourself) with healthy blondies that taste just like the real thing!
I've never created a vegan recipe before, well not intentionally anyway! But when Reflex Nutrition kindly sent me a tub of their vegan protein powder I thought I'd give it ago! I know there isn't many protein bars available to those on vegan diets so I thought I'd provide a recipe for some that you can make yourself! Even if you're not a vegan these bars are seriously delicious and not to mention SO easy to make.
It's been a while since I've had a guest recipe on the blog so it had to be a special one! I love this fantastic recipe from Hognuts ambassador Vian of Vees Fitness Foods for her indulgent Double Chocolate Cheesecake Bars.
