I have a confession to make. When this high protein bluberry loaf turned up at the gym, I found myself eating way more than my quota! In fact, I had to walk away accepting the fact that I would devour the loaf in one hit if I didn’t move fast. I know it’s not exactly a box of Tim Tams, but it’s still not great etiquette from a trainer right?
So if you are looking for a healthy high protein snack, then I encourage you to give this blueberry loaf a go as it is delicious!
Word of warning though… Even though this is an all natural high protein snack, it’s still contains a moderate amount of fruit. If you are looking at losing a few extra kilos, you have to be very mindful of the amount of carb’s you are consuming daily, so go easy.
- 1 grated apple
- 1 zest of a lemon
- 1 mashed banana
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 eggs separated
- 1 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup 180 protein powder
- 1 cup blueberries
This one is so simple even I’ve mastered it!
Place all the ingredients one by one in a bowl except for the egg whites and mix together.
Whip the egg whites into stiff peaks then fold gently through the other mixed ingredients.
The biggest decision you have to make now is if you want to bake a loaf or a muffin.
High Protein Loaf
Place in an approriate tray and bake for approximately 50 minutes at 160° or until it looks gorgeous and a knife comes out clean when you test it.

Pop into a muffin tray and bake at 160° degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until it looks gorgeous and a knife comes out clean when you test it.
Many thanks to Caroline Howe for the recipe.
