7 protein-packed sweet snacks

Here at UNiDAYS®, we're huge fans of the sweet treats. You probably know by now that we dedicate a day to cake and every Thursday we bring in baked goods for the office to go crazy for! We love pretty much all cake, the homemade kind, the shop-bought kind, the clean/sugar-free/vegan/gluten-free kind and now we're trialling the protein kind! To celebrate The Protein Works sweet little student discount offer we're taste-testing some of their new products from their protein snacks range which are all made with seriously high-quality ingredients and are super nutritious. Article_ProteinWorks_2 Kicking off with one of the favourite items for the UNiDAYS® taste-testers were the Protein Millionaire’s Brownies. These are seriously fudge-y in textured and taste due to the 'Millionaire's' aspect and they definitely hit the spot for those with a sweet tooth. Plus with just over 100 calories and 11g of protein, the macros on these are crazy good.

These have the exact same texture and a really similar taste and they come in really handy bite-size pieces. They contain premium whey isolate and are covered in raw Indonesian chocolate and organic Peruvian cacao nibs so are packed with nutrients! There's only 18 calories in one of these little bites so 5 of these treats is 90 calories and 5.5g of protein.

‌Next up, the mega Protein Flapjacks Luxe range, these are available in Double Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut and Toffee Pecan flavours and we tried a bit of them all! They're packed with super grains like chia seeds, quinoa powder and flaxseed for energy, our favourite was the Toffee Pecan, the taste of this one came out top. These are definitely more substantial than your average flapjack so they're a perfect pre or post-workout snack.

We also loved the Protein Nutties were my personal favourite. We tried the pretty in pink Almond Super Berry flavour and I loved that these were actually pink - they're soft, tasty and you can really taste the berry and almonds together! They taste amazing and also come in Cashew Coconut, Peanut Crunch, Choc Almond Cinnamon or Choc Hazelnut flavours! The choices are endless.
Finally, their best selling Diet Protein Truffles have a really clever and unique premium protein-blend for full-day energy release! These are a real treat as they're quite big and can really satisfy that sweet craving whilst giving you over 10g of protein in each one. These also come in a wide range of flavours from Caramel Macchiato, to Mint Chocolate and Strawberry Cheesecake.
