5 protein recipes you need to know

With 35% off MaxiNutrition as your motivation, here's 5 sweet treats to curb those Christmas cravings.

1. Protein pancakes

Protein pancakes are a great way to get that sweet treat hit either in the morning or as an after dinner treat. This recipe from Willow Bird Baking is super easy and quick as it only has four ingredients; a banana, 2 eggs, some baking powder and your trusty protein powder. We like MaxiNutrition's Promax Whey Isolate in Vanilla for these badboys. Add whatever toppings you like from fresh berries to honey and enjoy! ‌

2. Protein fluff

Ok, so if you've not heard of the wonder that is protein fluff, where have you been? This is a whole load of mass for not many calories and it'll fill you up and give you that sweet pudding hit that you may be craving. You can eat it on it's own as a kind of Angel Delight alternative or use it as a topping for your favourite pancakes or yoghurt. All you need is protein powder, milk, an egg white and whatever flavouring or fruit you fancy. ArticleSize_Maxinutrition_4 Image & Recipe c/o EatHealthyWorkHard

3. Protein muffins

These raspberry and chocolate protein muffins are a recipe from Laura Simpson recipe, a super cool fitness chick from the UK. Per muffin they have circa 111 calories, less than 2g of fat and 8g of protein. They are so tasty due to the little chunks of chocolate that go all melty. A perfect protein-packed snack to curb sweet-tooth cravings. ‌

  • 25g Linseed
  • 25g Honey
Measure it all out, mix it all together and whack it in the oven on grease proof paper! ‌
