These raspberry and choc cookies are packed full of gut loving fibre! The base of the cookies are chickpeas & oats, then I’ve also added chia seeds, psyllium husk & raspberries for fibre. Gut health is something I am SO passionate about and that’s why I chose to create a cookie recipe that nourishes your gut health and also tastes great! These cookies are lower in sugar and higher in fibre than traditional cookies and use whole food ingredients from your pantry!
Brownies have to be one of my favourites treats! Particularly when they are soft and gooey on the inside! I wanted to create a brownie recipe that was soft and gooey but also healthier then traditional brownies with more nourishing ingredients. I made these brownies plant based so those with allergies and lifestyle preferences can enjoy them as well.
I added nuts to this recipe as there is great research & evidence for the benefits of nuts & heart health. Did you know that a handful of nuts (30g) every day can reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease by more than 20% and coronary heart disease by nearly 30%. Regularly eating nuts can also significantly reduce your total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol and improve the ratio of bad to good cholesterol, which are all risk factors for heart disease! So… I guess that means these brownies are good for your heart hehe
Who doesn’t love a delicious muffin recipe as a snack! Blueberry muffins are a childhood favourite of mine so I wanted to make a healthy version of traditional muffins. These delicious & wholesome muffins are made higher fibre, lower sugar & more protein than what typical muffins are (plus they’re toddler approved!). The additional fibre and protein plus lower sugar content mean that you’ll stay fuller for longer and reduce those pesky sugar cravings! I like 1 muffin as a snack choice or 1-2 muffins + 2 boiled eggs for breaky (the addition of the eggs with the muffin at breaky adds more protein and fat to keep you full and satisfied until your next meal).

This has been my morning tea snack option for the past 2 weeks. I must admit, I’m obsessed! My slice is packed full of nourishing ingredients and has the perfect amount of fibre, protein and healthy fats to keep you feeling full all morning long. I used my favourite high protein, low lactose yoghurt (YoPRO) in the slice too as the vanilla flavour is SO tasty! It makes quite a lot (32 slices in fact!) so perhaps half the amount the time first time if you don’t want that many slices. I really hope you enjoy it and if you do, please tag me on Instagram: @the_fitness_dietitian
You guys will love these HEALTHY CHOCOLATE PROTEIN PANCAKES! You can thank me later!!
Getting enough protein at breakfast is important. It keeps you full throughout the day and helps manage blood sugar levels/ cravings too. Many people eat a breakfast which is far too high in carbohydrates and not high enough in protein. These healthy chocolate protein pancakes are not only high in protein, they are also great to satisfy any cravings you may have on the weekend but in a healthy way!
Yes you heard me right! I’ve got a healthy muffin recipe for you! These Healthy Breakfast Blender Banana Muffins are the BEST!!

The amount of protein, fibre and healthy fats in these muffins make them the best healthy banana muffins around and will keep your blood sugar levels stable too!
I’ve had lots of messages from my wonderful tribe asking me for lunch box friendly, savoury muffins so here is one of my favourite recipes with some sneaky veggies added in!
You guys asked for them so here they are: my easy, healthy and tasty peanut butter protein balls with chia seeds! Literally you should have every ingredient in your pantry for these ones (especially if you’re a peanut butter fan like me!). You don’t even need your blender for these ones which is the best part! You can mix them just with a spoon and it’ll only take you a few minutes. Super healthy, easy and delicious! You can thank me later!
This is literally my favourite ever healthy muesli bar recipe. Only 5 ingredients and vegan friendly too! I love that you get to use up all the over ripe bananas in your freezer too! They’re packed full of fibre, protein and healthy fats to keep you full and nourished until you eat your next meal.
I love when all the hot cross buns start appearing in the shops but I also equally dislike how unhealthy a lot of them can be. I’ve come up with a tummy friendly and healthy version of this Easter treat for you and your loved ones to enjoy. They are best served warm straight out of the oven!
