I am sure for many of us kids of the 80s (showing my age now!) that the word “quiche” conjures up unpleasant memories of very beige looking creations with strips of fatty ham and a thick and soggy pastry casing….. so I’m pleased to tell you that I’ve given this childhood picnic staple a makeover and present this remixed high protein, nutrient packed version that makes a great dinner and an even better lunch the next day. Not only that, but you can customise the filling to fit your needs and macros. How do you make this vitamin-filled vegetarian version? Read on!
I was delighted when Sports Nutrition company Bulk Powders got in touch and asked me to create a recipe for them using a mystery flavour of protein that they wanted to send me…. I do love a cooking challenge!
So when I received several sachets of their high quality Strawberry flavour whey protein, I decided to create a healthy muffin recipe that you can enjoy as the perfect post workout refuel, or to satisfy your sweet tooth mid-morning (without worrying about the calories). But despite having great macros, good nutritional benefits and being easy to make, to me by far the best thing about these Bulk Powder Berry Protein muffins is the fact that they are pink! A protein treat to match my gym outfit – perfect!
So how do you make them?
When brand new high protein peanut butter brand Hi-Pro approached me to create a healthy recipe with their fabulous new nut butters I knew I wanted to come up with a nutritious twist on a naughty treat. So my Hi Pro PB Truffles were born! Hi-Pro is different from other nut butters out there because it contains 33% protein per serving so these truffles are protein packed, free from refined sugar and bursting with nutrients. There’s still time to whip up a batch to enjoy with coffee on Christmas morning!
