Nutribuddy Healthy Bakes Recipes

You’ve probably seen Emma’s (@my_gf_weightloss_story) face pop up all over the Nutribuddy blog recently, but it is for good reason.

Not only has she shared her inspiring story of recovering from bulimia and working towards a healthy, happy lifestyle, but she’s also got an Instagram feed full of delicious Nutribuddy smoothie recipes. Trust us, they’re delicious (we might have tried out every single one already… #fangirls).

And, if it couldn’t get any better, she’s recently shared a handful of amazing Nutribuddy bake recipes on her Instagram profile. It’s kinda difficult to beat a sweet and indulgent bake which is low in calories and sugar yet packed with nutrition – so, of course, we had to share them with you!

We totally think Emma should sign up for next year’s Great British Bake Off – she’d get our vote! So, with that said, let’s jump right into Emma’s 5 nutritious Nutribuddy bakes:

Oat & Nut Butter Snack Balls

Okay, so we know we said bakes, but you don’t actually have to bake these little round balls of goodness – they couldn’t be easier to prepare!

Oat Protein Balls made with Nutribuddy

These gooey, oaty balls can be prepared the night before a busy day and brought on-the-go, for a quick, energy-boosting snack. Plus, they only contain 3 ingredients – winner! However, you could go a step further and add in dried fruit, seeds or nuts for an even bigger protein boost.

This recipe should make a few balls to last you a few days, depending on how big you make them – but you can always adapt the quantities to make more or less.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  • Add the oats and nutrient booster to a bowl.
  • Add in your nut butter. The amount you’ll need to add will depend on the brand, but we’d recommend adding it in slowly – by the teaspoon – and mixing until you get a thick, sticky consistency.
  • Roll into balls using hands.
  • Place in a container to set in the fridge for around half an hour.

NUTRITIONAL VALUES

Based on making 6 balls, using the quantities above.

Raspberry Breakfast Bakewell

We Brits love a good ol’ Bakewell, but they’re not always the healthiest of choices – especially for breakfast! But we love Emma’s idea of creating an oat-based Bakewell and topping it with raspberries for a healthy, nutritious breakfast. After all, who said you can’t have dessert for breakfast?!

We’ve adapted Emma’s recipe to make it 100% vegan and added an extra protein boost for satiety. This recipe should yield about 3 breakfast servings – depending on how big your appetite is, of course! It might not look like a big portion, but oats are packed with soluble fibre and will leave you feeling satisfied and full until lunch.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Mix the oats, protein powder, milk, raspberries and almond essence together in a bowl.
  • Transfer the mixture to a baking tray.
  • Sprinkle your Nutrient Booster and a few extra raspberries on top.
  • Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, or until firmed up and golden brown (keep an eye on it – you don’t want to overbake!).

Chocolate Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are another one of those treats that you immediately associate with excessive sugar and calories, which leave you feeling bloated for hours. And while there’s always time for those sugar-packed, chocolate-sauce-covered pancakes (it’s all about balance, remember!), they’re not exactly going to leave you satisfied and revved with energy for the day ahead.

Thankfully, Emma has found the perfect solution. Her chocolate flavoured protein pancakes are refined sugar-free, super filling and, thanks to their high protein content and oat base, leave you feeling full for hours. They make a brilliant breakfast, but would also work as a healthy snack when you need something to curb those sweet cravings!

Again, we’ve adapted Emma’s recipe to make it 100% vegan. This recipe should make around 3 or 4 pancakes, but this will depend on how thick/big you make them.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  • Mix or blend the protein powder, oats, nutrient booster, almond milk and baking powder together, until smooth.
  • Heat up a tiny bit of oil in a non-stick frying pan and spoon or pour in a small amount of the pancake batter.
  • Cook on a low-medium heat for a few minutes. Little bubbles should appear on the surface of the pancake – that’s when you know it’s time to flip!
  • Flip over and cook for a few more minutes, until golden brown.
  • Repeat for the rest of the batter.
  • Top with vegan yoghurt and a handful of berries – delicious!

Doughnut-Style Baked Oats

This last recipe is one of our personal faves. They’re the ultimate grab-and-go oaty breakfast or snack for busy days and make a great addition to the kid’s lunchboxes, too. Plus, they can be baked in big batches and kept fresh in a biscuit tin for a good few days, too! Do keep an eye on that tin, though, they’re so good that the whole family won’t be able to keep their hands off…

We made 8 small doughnuts out of this recipe, but as always, how many you get really depends on how big/small you make them. We actually quite like the idea of creating teeny tiny doughnut bites to use as a quick boost during those mid-afternoon or morning energy dips.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Mix the oats, protein powder, milk, blueberries and almond essence together in a bowl.
  • We’re well aware that most people won’t have a doughnut cutter, so just mould the batter into small, dough-nut shaped balls with your hands.
  • Place them on a baking tray and sprinkle your Nutrient Booster and a few extra blueberries on top.
  • Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, or until firmed up and golden brown (keep an eye on them – you don’t want to overbake!).

Based on 1 doughnut out of 8 small doughnuts made from the quantities above.
