Apple’s are brilliant in cake recipes- they add moisture as well as a delicious fragrance. Combine them with cinnamon and mixed spice and you have a match made in heaven! So when Rachel shared this delicious recipe with me, I just had to share it with you!
So, here’s the recipe:
50g wholewheat flour
50g rice flour
50g coconut flour
25g vanilla plant protein powder
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g chopped Apple
1tsp mixed spice
150g egg white
20g melted coconut oil
250ml unsweetened almond milk
1tsp natvia sweetner
Preheat your oven to 150C and pop 12 muffin cases in to a muffin tray.
Mix all wet ingredients together, add all the dry ingredients, then fold in the Apple.
Divide mixture between 12 muffin tins and pop in the oven for 15 minutes or until firm to touch on top!
Enjoy as they are or smother with a lovely layer or peanut butter!

The sports nutrition industry has become littered with new brands that claim to be the best and provide you with the nutrition to produce ultimate performance. So, when it comes to know what to buy, how good it is and if you can actually trust the brands claims, it can all become a bit mind boggling. So, when I received a lovely looking parcel of protein shakes from UFit drinks, I wanted to see if their ‘on-the-go high protein health & wellness drinks for active men & women’, were as good as they look on the bottle.
The taste test:
- When trying the drinks, I based their taste on what I feel the flavour ‘normally’tastes like and, coming up trumps, for me was the banana flavour. It tasted SO good; like I was drinking an actual banana shake.
- The chocolate was thick and creamy, just as I like a shake to be
- None of the shakes were runny, so as a meal replacement, they are ideal because you feel as if you have actually consumed something of substance.
The nutritional content:
- In the ‘normal’ size bottle, the drinks contain a whopping 22g of protein, 11g of carbs and around 3g of fat; ideal to help you recover post work out.
- In the UFit 50 drinks, there is 50g of protein for only 336 calories! FIT PRO50 is naturally rich in essential amino acids, the building blocks of your body. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by your body, meaning they must be obtained from foods and drink. They also contain vitmains and minerals and are low in fat, again, ideal post workout!
Baking, making and creating with UFIT:
- The drinks are SO versatile to make things with; you can sub any liquid in a mixture for the drink and can make the ultimate protein pancakes.
- To make the pancakes, simply blend a banana, one UFIT drink and some flour together and then cook in a frying pan!
The price and where to find them:
I created this recipe for The Collective dairy using their delicious Straight up yogurt, as who’d have thought that doughnuts would make a healthy breakfast choice!

- 50g The Collective Straight Up
- 100g spelt flour

- 100g applesauce
- 1 medium egg

- Preheat your oven to 150C and grease your doughnut tin (if you don’t have a doughnut tin, muffin tins will work the same)
- Simply mix all of the ingredients together until they are well combined
- Put enough mixture in to each doughnut hole so that it levels off at the top of each ring
- The put your doughnuts in the oven for around 10 minutes or until they are springy to touch
