I created these yesterday and was amazed with how they turned out! They are packed with protein and chocolate peanut flavour so are great for snacks during the day or after a workout. Plus although they are small they are super filling and heavy so a small bar fills you right up. They totally taste the same as naked bars but are way more filling and affordable!
250g of peanut butter
3 tbsps of honey
90g of oats
4 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1tbsp of cacao powder
2-5 tbsps of water
Firstly you’ll need to measure your peanut butter and honey and microwave in a plastic bowl for 30 seconds and mix.
Next measure all the rest of the ingredients in a bigger bowl and add the liquid mixture. Mix thoroughly and add as much water as necessary to combine the ingredients. The mix should be stiff and dough like.
Place the mixture in a square tin and push down hard with a fork. These are really filling and heavy so a thin layer is best.
Place in fridge for half an hour and you’re good to go!
I cut them in to small bars and wrap them individually to take to the gym.
Let me know if you try them!
Here in England the sun is finally out! So this is definitely encouraging me to eat more healthy before all the shorts come out!
I somehow whipped this granola up yesterday by mixing a few recipes and using what I could find. I’m sick of breakfast cereals being absolutely packed of sugar, and instead of cakes heavy snacks this is perfect for quick on the go munching. Eat with milk, yogurt on its own!
Any oil you can find, I used rapeseed but coconut would taste better
I didn’t measure anything I just kinda winged it. Mix everything in a big bowl, it shouldn’t stick together but should be slightly wet.
Then spread the mixture thinly on foil or baking paper and pop in the oven on around 180 degrees for ten minutes.
Then leave to cool and pop in a sealable container!

I attempted making my own protein balls the other day and they turned out pretty good! So I thought I’d share how I made them. These are the ingredients I used but add or swap whatever you fancy:
- Whey protein (banana)
- Cacao powder
- Mixed chopped nuts
- Chia seeds
- Peanut butter
- Chopped almonds
The essential ingredients are dates, soaked and chopped in a food processor or blender. And also nuts to give texture. And obviously protein powder.
The peanut butter made it for me, as did the cacao.
After blitzing the dates and nuts together, add water until it’s mix-able. Then add your other ingredients and stir. I decided last minute to add oats to soak up some excess moisture and I’m so glad I did as it made them much more filling and substantial. Then I rolled them in chopped almonds to finish, and pop in the fridge.
I’m going to slowly invest in more health ingredients to add in such as macca powder, but just use what you have!
