high_protein_snack

This healthy delicious recipe (big thanks to Caroline Howe!) is low in carbs and high in protein, good fats and lots of fibre making it the perfect treat for an alternative low carb, high protein snack. This is seriously tasty and is a awesome alternative to that 3pm gluten free sugar loaded muffin!

Ingredients

  • Cooking Time: 30min
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup 180 protein powder
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 mashed bananas
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • Juice of one lemon (if you like it lemony)
  • 3 eggs yolks
  • 3 egg whites whipped into hard peaks

Step 1

Pre-heat the over to 170 degrees for a fan forced oven and grab a loaf tin out of the cupboard and line the tin with baking paper.

Mix all the dry ingredients together which are:

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup 180 protein powder
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Step 2

Now mix the wet ingredients which are:

  • 1 mashed bananas
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • Juice of one lemon (if you like it lemony)
  • 3 eggs yolks

Put the wet ingredients into the dry.

Step 3

Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the combined mixture. This is best done with a silver spoon to keep the bubbles. Folding gently is the key to getting that nice light fluffy feel, so hold back with those flexed biceps while you cook.

Place the mix in the prepared tin and sit back and wait for 30min’s as the great aroma fills the room! And hey presto! The perfect healthy high protein snack.

If you have people floating around the house that you don’t want to share the masterpiece with but need to store the loaf, then slice it up and put it in the freezer. My guess it will not last that long anyway!
