Whoop! Doughnuts are back on the menu my friends. These little beauties contain no wheat flour, no added sugar or fat and provide a decent whack of protein in each one. They are also really easy to make. I suggest getting yourself a silicone doughnut mould (like this one) but if you don’t have one you can use a regular cup cake tin. Not quite as fun but still as tasty :-)
I adore Mexican food. All those fresh ingredients and spices. But it can often be pretty heavy on the fat and calorie front. In this recipe I’ve lightened up the ingredients to make it an everyday meal that still has all the tasty Mexican flavours.
Rich, moist and chocolately. Nothing beats a big warm chocolate brownie. Apart from when it contains over 18g of protein and is dripping in sticky protein glaze!
I suggest you hide yourself away with these as you won’t want to share them…
There isn’t much that beats the combination of rich chocolate, creamy peanut butter and sweet banana. These little protein filled treats are so quick and simple to make too – the hardest part is not eating them all at once!
I’m a huge fan of puddings in a hurry. Which is why I LOVE this moist chocolate and peanut butter microwave cake. A little mixing and 2 minutes in the microwave and you’ve got yourself a warm steamed pudding that is the perfect canvas for all your favourite toppings!
Before a heavy leg session I always make a big stack of protein pancakes. This week was no different and I had some new Hydra 6 protein from Grenade I was really looking forward to trying. It being so close to Christmas I thought I would put a festive twist on this weeks pancakes, so I topped them with warm stewed apples, raisins and cinnamon which was simply delicious.
These homemade Quest bars taste JUST like the real thing (perhaps even better – yep I said it!) but are a fraction of the cost. You only need to have a little look at my recipes to see that I am a huge fan of peanut butter, so I chose to add Quest craving peanut butter cups to these. Which turned them from tasty to woooaahhhh! I used chocolate whey for the base, you need a really tasty protein powder as this is what provides the base flavour, I used Smart Protein’s chocolate whey which is really creamy and was perfect for this recipe. You will also need the secret ingredient used in Quest bars which is IMO syrup and is available from Muscle Food (as are the PB cups!)
I made this banana and peanut butter protein smoothie for my breakfast when I needed something really quick and nutritious that I could take with me. I knew my chimps would love this one too, especially with the addition of plenty of peanut butter. It’s so simple to make but tastes like a thick and creamy milkshake.
These chocolate chip and almond protein cookies are completely free from flour and contain no added sugar. They are however super simple to make and are really filling. Perfect for an on-the-go high protein snack.
This low fat, low carb healthy prawn and vegetable curry is quick and simple to make but is packed full of flavour and protein! I like to serve this curry with my legendary cauliflower ‘rice’. Perfect for those on low carb diets, you can enjoy a big plateful of food with minimal calories!
Possibly all of my favourite flavours packed into one tasty treat! These banoffee millionaire protein flapjacks seriously hit the spot if you have a sweet tooth which I certainly do.
Chef to a 100k strong chimp army I had my skinnychimp family in mind when coming up with this recipe. It needed to include a chimp staple – bananas. Toffee was an obvious choice thereafter, which is when I turned to Bulk Powders toffee popcorn whey and topping anything with chocolate improves it right?
I used Get Buzzing’s all natural banana flapjacks for the base. Some would say this is cheating, I would say clever as I had inhaled the entire batch within 20 minutes of coming up with the recipe.
You can either do my ‘cheats method’ or if you are feeling particularly Mary Berry and have more time you can try my ‘from scratch method’ – either way you must try them.
Creamy, rich and delicious this creamy steak sauce gives all the flavour with only a smidgen of the fat and calories of standard steak sauce.
I really enjoy a good steak and none more than the stunning range from Muscle Food. From classic beef steaks to exotic steaks like kangaroo and horse! I’m slowly working my way through them all.
I am an absolute sucker for strawberry creams. At Christmas you will always find me digging through the tin to find them. This year I wanted to ensure I had nailed the perfect healthy protein packed version. With only two ingredients (well three is you count the water?) they are extremely clean and simple to make.
Some call it French Toast, I’ve always known it as eggy bread. What ever you like to call, it it’s unlikely to play a part in your healthy diet. Until now! My healthy protein packed version is low in fat, high in protein but is just as tasty – I promise!
Hi I’m Jamie Alderton, Team Grenade Athlete and Body transformation coach. As I’m currently off season I have a habit of going into Costa and sinking into a big, sugary slice of carrot cake! I pondered and thought there must be a way that I can recreate a healthier version of my favorite slice and voila!
My healthy red thai curry is the perfect mid-week dinner. It’s super quick and simple to make but really tasty and healthy too! What’s not to love about that?
I’m Jason Eacock and my identical twin is Kristian Eacock, we go by the names Jay and Kig and are also known as The Eacock Twins. 24 years old and proud Athlete’s for SCI-MX Nutrition, we’re both fully qualified engineers, however, fitness and nutrition is our lives and after leaving university we both pursued our passion and opened our own fitness facility as a joint business venture called Revolution Fitness. Diet and nutrition is what we love the most about fitness and we are both very passionate about using diet to reach our goals.
This easy-to-make recipe is one of my absolute favourites. It’s so easy, convenient and unbelievably great tasting that I have it every single day! I have many reasons for choosing this recipe, not only the ones I have already stated but also because it is quick to do and gives a high protein source of nutrition. It is so versatile that almost anything can be added to increase flavour or to change the macronutrient ratios! I absolutely love having whey protein as it is one of the best sources of protein available. When dieting down it is so easy to waste calories of food that help you hit your macros but do not satisfy hunger cravings. This recipe gives a low fat source of protein and carbs but also gives a very full feeling that you may not necessarily achieve from a whey protein shake alone. Did I also mention how good it tastes? For this you will need the following.
Nothing beats a big plate of warm chilli. Either piled high on some protein pasta like I have done here, or served cold in a wholemeal wrap, chilli is a firm favourite for many of us. But it can also be loaded with fat! My recipe uses extra lean mince and plenty of veggies which makes it much lower in fat and calories.
These protein ‘After Eight’ chocolates couldn’t be more simple to make. With only two ingredients, a little melting and chilling you can enjoy healthy chocolates that fit your macros! (whoop!)
This is the perfect lazy recipe. All you need to do is a little chopping, throw everything in your slow cooker (or saucepan) and leave it alone. There is no need to stir it, sing to it or tend to it in anyway until it’s cooked.
These no bake strawberry & chia seed protein bites are a perfect on the go breakfast or healthy snack. They involve no cooking or baking at all so are really easy to make. They are also very versatile so you can make them with your favourite flavour protein powder and coat in anything you like! These ones are made with Smart Protein’s strawberry flavour whey which is really tasty. I also added chia seeds for some healthy fats and a little crunch. This recipe is really flexible to tailor to your macros and you can use any protein powder or coating.
