Fact: I love cookies. End of. When I was at uni.. I used to make all the cookies, whoopee pies and, THE BEST EVER BROWNIE, aka the slutty brownie!
So, when on my quest to ‘healthify’ my favourite foods, I just had to do so to the humble cookie.
This recipe is chewy as a cookie should be, yet full of protein!
To make 10, you will need:
-30g of vanilla protein powder,
-150g of egg whites,
– 20g of coconut sugar,
– 100g of flour (I used quinoa flour),
– 50g of mixed dried fruit,
– 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Simply combine all of the ingredients until well mixed and then use a serving spoon to take one serving spoon size amount, place on a greased baking tray and spread in to a cookie shape!
Do that for all ten and then pop in to the oven for 10 minutes!
This combination is so creamy and tastes so naughty yet is super healthy and delicious. The avocado adds healthy fats, the dried fruit is a brilliant carbohydrate source and the protein is added for muscle repair so these are ideal pre or post workout!
- 1 serving of protein powder,
- 1 avocado,
- 2 tablespoons of cacao powder,
- 20g of chocolate spread,
- 30g of agave nectar,
- 50g of dried mixed fruit,
- 30g of cacao nibs.
- In your blender, combine the first 5 ingredients together until well combined (you may need to add some water),
- Once well blended, hand mix in the dried fruit and cacao nibs.
- Pop the mixture in the fridge for around an hour to set,
- Take the mixture out and role in to balls!
- Keep in the fridge and enjoy!
Cookie dough is one of my favourite treats, so when made I came up with this recipe to have it in a healthy way, I just had to share it with you! The combination of proteins, fats and carbohydrates means that these balls make the ideal mid morning snack to keep you full until lunchtime.. without them I would be getting HANGRYYYY!
- 40g of Coconut flour,
- 40g of Vanilla protein Powder,
- 1 of each of Whitworths shots; Toffee and Pecan and Raisin and Chocolate,
- 30g of Coconut and Almond butter (The Pip and Nut Sachets are ideal),
- 150ml of milk.
These couldn’t be easier as all you have to do is:
- Mix all of the ingredients together until well combined,
- Leave the mix to sit in the fridge for an hour,
- Roll the mixture in to balls.
Let me know if you try them and tag me on instagram (@_hannaheats, if you do)!
This recipe is an ideal sweet treat and snack to placate the sweet tooth without the calories yet full of nutrient dense wholefoods. And, moreover, who doesn’t love the current trend flavour combination that is salted caramel? These treats require no baking and are ready almost instantly.
- This couldn’t be easier; in your blender, simply pop in all the ingredients and blend until they are well combined.
- Line a baking tin with cling film and then spread the mixture over the top,
- Pop the bars in the freezer for around an hour,
- Take the bars out of the freezer, slice and enjoy!
- Store in the fridge for up to two weeks!
