Chocolate Orange Marmalade (healthy version)

Chocolate Orange Marmalade Makes about 700g (4 small jars) Chia seeds jellify in liquid, so less sugar needed to get that ‘jammy’ consistency. You can put this on protein pancakes, add it to smoothies for post workout carbs, or I recommend trying Sukrin Low Carb Gluten Free Breads warm straight from the oven. Mmmmmm pure […]

Strawberries & Cream Chocolate Chia Pudding

This is actually healthy enough to be an extravagant breakfast, but you wouldn’t know it to taste. Chocolate is the ultimate feel good food at that’s a fact – it actually increases ‘happy’ chemicals serotonin and dopamine in the brain.

Red Velvet Anniversary Shake

This was devised after I had leftover beetroot puree from the Red Velvet pancakes from Valentine’s Day that I’d frozen. It’s my wedding anniversary at the end of August, so I figured this would be a suitable start to the day! It’s a really yummy twist on the classic chocolate shake, with extra nutrients from […]

Protein Pow + Green & Blacks Chocolate Cupcakes

Protein Pow + Green & Blacks Chocolate Cupcakes I wanted to see if I could literally take any cake recipe and just swap the flour for one of Protein Pow’s baking mixes. So the rest of the ingredients are exactly the same as ‘traditional’ cake – butter, sugar etc. I used the whey one but […]

Christmas Praline Chocolate Gluten-Free Chia Porridge

Is it just me or does ‘normal’ porridge get a bit samey? I love, no make that absolutely adore a hot bowl of something squidgy and comforting on winter mornings. There’s something about it being almost too hot to eat that somehow makes it feel much more satisfying than a cold breakfast, at least in […]
