It still amazes me how often I get asked about diet shakes. If only it was that simple. Take a couple of diet shakes daily and wholla! Seriously, stay away from them. If you are concerned about your health as much as your weight, then eating nutrient dense food that keeps your blood sugar levels steady will do the trick.

If you think eating has to boring eating, then think again! The diet shake has nothing on our super healthy 180 natural protein banana muffin (just go easy on the banana not to effect blood sugar). These natural high protein snacks are seriously delicious!


Makes 6 muffins

  • 1 grated apple
  • Lemon zest
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spices
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 mashed bananas
  • Pinch of stevia to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup 180 natural protein superfood (chocolate)
  • 1/4 chopped pecans
  • 2 extra egg whites

Step 1

Grate the apple and place in a bowl. Then add the lemon zest, lemon juice, mixed spices and cinnamon and pop in a bowl. Sprinkle over the stevia and vanilla essence and let all the yummy juices combine.

Mix in the 2 eggs into the apple mixture.

Step 2

Then add the almond meal, the coconut, the 180, pecans into the apple mix.

Whip the last two egg whites into stiff peaks and then fold gently into the existing mix.

Place the mixture into a muffin tray and bake at 170 degrees for about 30min or until a knife comes out clean when you test it.

Snack on these gems when hungry. This will out muscle diet shakes any day!

Big thanks to Caroline Howe for the recipe and allowing us UTS guys to test the goods before it goes live on the blog….They go down very well!
