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!
Let me know any other easy recipes!
Let me start off by saying, I’m not an expert. Nor do I eat perfect every single day. But I like to think that I’m treating my body better these days and my eating habits are definitely improving! It’s all about finding foods that excite you and that you look forward to eating. And I serious can’t muster up excitement for kale. I really tried, but no. Instead I’ve listed the foods that have known health benefits that actually are yummy. At least to me!
Yeah, nothing new here. The obsession is real though. Healthy source of fat, fill you up for longer and can be worked into a variety of meals.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
I’ve only recently discovered this and I am obsessed. Splash it on salads and veg and it’s delish. It has heaps of benefits, and is perfect as it’s getting warmer. I love it on tuna salads.
3. Cacao powder
Well this is basically just healthy chocolate powder. Enough said. Add to anything. Smoothies, protein balls, baking, oats…
I know there is nothing new about tuna, but seriously I can’t get enough lately. Which is useful at uni, brain food. Anyone else feeling the obsession?
5. Sweet Potato
This is something I always keep in the house as it comes in so useful. Chop into fries, bake as a jacket, boil into a Thai curry or roast.
Let me know if you like this post and I’ll go on the hunt for more yummy healthy treats. Also let me know any of your faves.
