Protein Brownie Mix
With the reduced stress of baking home cooked brownies from scratch, this mix makes it so easy. All it requires is:
- Some yogurt
- An egg
- And a touch of milk
It’s super quick, easy and completely eradicates the confusion and annoyance of starting from scratch – it also saves on washing up (bonus).
Though, if you’re rubbish at baking, like me, it’s still easy to forget ingredients. I managed to completely forget about the egg the first time I made this and ended up with a giant crumbly mess *Face Palm*.
To make it you need 6 scoops (150g) of protein brownie mix. 5 scoops makes around 16 portions, but it really depends on the size you cut the squares and how much you plan to eat.
Made using Rolled oats and whey protein, this protein brownie mix is extremely Moorish.
Here are the nutritionals of the mix as sold, (don’t forget you need to add eggs, milk and yoghurt).

How To Make:
- Mix 150g of Protein Brownie Mix with 175g of Greek yoghurt, 45g of milk and an egg
- Whisk or blend into a smooth batter
- Grease up a baking tray – we used coconut oil to do this.
- Pop the baking tray in a pre-heated oven (around 180 degrees)
- Cook for 18 – 20 minutes or pop a fork or toothpick in it, if it comes out clear it’s cooked and ready to be gobbled up.
For some reason, I figured this would come out chewy and dry like many protein bars, but it was delicious and especially good while still warm. I wish I had some ice-cream to go with it – warm brownies and vanilla ice-cream are life.
The second time I made these I add in a giant handful of chocolate chips, just to add to the gooey, chocolatey goodness. It did not disappoint.
Also, I recommend you lick the spoon on this one – the mix tastes incredible before cooking and smells even better whilst cooking.
But please remember to put the egg in it – the crumbly mess I made the first time tasted good but I had to spoon it in my mouth like bread crumbs.
Protein Muffin Mix
When you can bake a batch of tasty protein muffins in under 15 minutes, why wouldn’t you?
Created using different protein sources including:
- And milk protein
These protein cupcakes are a quick and easy way to boost your protein intake.
They are so easy to make and only require a few ml’s of milk and some coconut oil. So they’re perfect for anyone who enjoys the joy of baking without the stress and washing up that comes with it.
3.5 scoops (100g) makes approximately 4 standard size muffins. You could stretch this out to make 6 – but they would be rather small and un-muffin-like.
Macro wise, for the whole 4 muffins (as sold) will be:
- Protein – 41% – 36g
- Carbohydrates – 48% – 42g
- Fat – 11% – 4g
Nutritional Info (as sold):
|Energy||1523 kJ/360 kcal||18%|
|of which saturates||1.6 g||8%|
|of which sugars||26 g||29%|
How To Make:
- Take two tablespoons of coconut oil and microwave until liquid
- Mix coconut oil and 100g of muffin mix with 100ml of milk (skimmed, whole, semi – whatever you prefer/fits your macros)
- Once mixed, separate into 4-6 portions either straight into a muffin tray or in muffin paper
- Cook for 12-15 minutes or until golden on top
Although tasty, I did find them slightly dry and plain – I suppose using unflavoured mix could be the cause of that. My second attempt at making them I decided to add some chocolate chips and some Toffee FlavDrops to add to the flavour and it helped with the taste, although they were still slightly dry.
Many people have suggested blending up a banana and adding some fruit to soften it up – some suggest adding more coconut oil, I haven’t tried these suggestions just yet, but if you have please let me know.
Not as good as a real, highly calorific triple chocolate muffin – but I never expected it to be. It was, however, a pretty good, macro fitting substitute.
