180 Nutrition, Video Recipes

Guy: Hi. This is Guy of 180 Nutrition, and today I want to show you how to make a very
simple snack.

It’s a high-protein biscuit, and it’s going to be made from completely all-natural
ingredients: the ones I’m showing in front of you.

So, naturally, we’re going to be using 180 natural protein supplement. I’ve got chocolate 180 here, and of course you
can use the coconut as well.

All we need is one egg, some coconut oil, we’re using some chopped prunes, we’ve also
got; these are chopped macadamias and almonds. Your preference of choice.

Here’s nut meal, shredded coconut, almond paste, and some water. And I’m just about to
show you how simple all of this is.

OK. We’ve got a 50-gram scoop. The 50-gram scoop is gonna be two scoops of chocolate
180 protein supplement, like so.

Now, here’s the nut meal. The nut meal is roughly about half a scoop, give or take. OK?

And we’re gonna use a full scoop of coconut. Now, this stuff is not the easiest to scoop so
I might as well just tip some in. There you go. I’ve done it, right there.

And put in an egg. One egg.

Then, this is a dessert spoon so a dessert spoon, tablespoon, I know they’re similar. This
is just some fresh mineral water. Just a spoon of that.

And then we want two tablespoons of coconut oil. One. Two.

And two tablespoons of almond paste. Like so.

And then mix altogether.

Get a nice consistency.

Paleo Recipe Snacks: High protein blueberry muffins

By Guy Lawrence

If you are into your paleo snacks, then these gluten free all natural high protein muffins are a winner! You can prepare them in under 10 minutes. A while ago, we put this paleo recipe into a blog post – High protein Bluberry muffin loaf. They are that good, we though we’d put the recipe into a video and turn them into paleo muffins.

Once made, you can pop them in the freezer and take one each day for your lunch box. By lunchtime they are defrosted and ready to eat. Delicious! Hands down better than any processed snack you buy for $5 bucks on the run.

  • Makes 6 muffins
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 2 x 50g serve of 180 natural protein supplement
  • 2 x 50g serve of hazelnut meal
  • 1 x 50g serve of shredded coconut
  • 1 x medium grated apple
  • 1 x medium mashed banana
  • 1 x tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 x egg whites
  • 1 x handful of blueberries

Paleo  recipe snacks / muffins transcript

Guy: Hi. This is Guy of 180 Nutrition, and today I want to show you how to make a high-protein blueberry muffin.

Very simple to do. And not only is it simple; it’s completely natural and very healthy as well.

paleo snacksSo, just in front of me here you’ll see the list of ingredients I’ve got. We’ve got Chocolate 180 Protein supplement. You can use chocolate or coconut for this. I’ve got a small apple, which is grated up. I’ve got a medium-sized banana which is mashed.

I’ve got a couple of egg whites. Now, the egg whites have the yolks taken out. Why? I don’t know. We’ll have to ask Caroline on that one.

We’ve got a lemon, got some blueberries, got some almond meal and some shredded coconut and also some vanilla essence.

And I’m basically going to show you how it’s all whipped together.

We’re going to just mix the ingredients, so the first thing we’ve got is, this is a 50-gram scoop. These come with the bags of protein. Now, we’re gonna use two scoops of 180 protein supplement.

We’re gonna use two scoops of almond meal. Again, we don’t have to be that precise. Two scoops.

And then we’re gonna use one scoop of coconut. There you go.

All right. From that point, we are gonna add; that’s the grated apple. We’ve got the mashed banana.

Just something to be wary of, as well, if you are trying to lose weight, just go easy with the fruit and take it half daily because it will affect your weight-loss plan because you want to keep your carbohydrate count low. OK?

So, if you limit yourself to one piece of fruit a day, and or have one muffin in between your meals as a snack, I think you’ll be fine.

So, we have added that. The next thing I’m gonna do is throw in some grated lemon.

You can use as much as you want. This is just an arbitrary guesstimate, up to a whole one. Perfect.

And then from there what we’re gonna do is, if you want a little bit of vanilla essence here, add a teaspoon.

And then just mix these in together nice and easy.

Once that’s mixed, you just sprinkle in a few blueberries if you like these.

And then get the two egg whites which have been pre-beated.

You simply fold these together. Just keep turning them over. Get that egg white amongst it.

As you see, there’s a nice paste coming.

Looks good to me. And then with the muffin tray that we have here, pop them in.

(Text on screen): 20 minutes later

Guy: So, these have just been in the oven now for 20 minutes, and, as you can see, they are looking beautiful and they are smelling beautiful, too. So, I’ve just got to make sure that Stuie holding the camera doesn’t come and eat the lot.

And, yeah, I hope you enjoyed it. Until the next time.

Turmeric & Garam Masala 180 Low Carb Cheese Balls


By 180 Nutrition

Guy: These are divine… For me spices + cheese = heaven! So when Caroline sent me through this recipe for the turmeric and garam masala 180 high protein cheese balls, I got very excited.

These make for an excellent vegetarian high protein snack. Have them for your dinner with your favourite veg or pop them in your lunch box and snack on them throughout the day. These natural snacks of goodness would beat any synthetic protein bar or supplement any day!

And if you are wondering which cheese to use. My rule of thumb is the more mature/fermented the better. Just stay away from your processed sliced and creamed cheeses etc.


Prep time: 2min

Cook time: 5-10min

  • 2 organic eggs
  • 150g of grated cheese
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp of garam masala
  • 2 x 50g scoops of 180 natural protein supplement (coconut)
  • Coconut oil to fry with

These quantities make approximately 8 balls/patties.


Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Roll into balls of your choice.

In a frying pan add some coconut oil and heat. Then place balls into the heated oil and fry on a low to moderate heat for 5-10min until golden brown.

These quantities make approximately 8 balls/patties. Which serves two for a meal or makes for a quick protein snack to add to lunch boxes etc.

I served it with mashed sweet potato and Broccoli. Really tasty and delicious… Enjoy!

Personally I don’t eat much bread. It’s been a number of years since I’ve cut out most grains from my diet. But I must admit, there’s nothing quite like smelling toast first thing in the morning! And when Caroline finally made a high protein low carb, grain free bread, I was very excited to try it!

  • 1 1/2 cups of besan flour
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • About 1 cup of mineral water

How to make this amazingly easy high protein low carb bread

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Mix the eggs then add them to the dry ingredients. Add the mineral water and mix with a fork until just combined.

Pour the runny mix into a loaf tin.

Bake for 25-30 min, it gets a bit dry if it’s overcooked.

Let it cool a bit then eat!!! It’s also great to slice and put in freezer, then toast when needed. Enjoy!

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees

You’ll need two bowls and a lined baking tray all in a row.

Thinly slice the sweet potato up and set aside for a moment.

Then put the egg yolks into the first bowl, add the crushed garlic and whisk up with a fork.

In the second bowl mix the 180 natural protein powder and the chopped rosemary together.

Step 2

Then start the production line. Dip the sweet potato into the egg mix and then into the dry 180 natural protein powder and rosemary mix. Finally place on the ready baking tray.
