Five Quick And Easy Protein-Filled Dessert Recipes

Even if you’re following the strictest of diet plans, there’s no point having dessert if it’s not going to be a treat. Ersatz versions of brownies and cakes that strip out all the good stuff aren’t going to satisfy a sweet tooth – if anything they’ll just make you crave the real thing.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to completely discard your healthy-eating intentions come pudding time. With a little tweak to the recipe of your favourite desserts, you can at least ensure they’re full of muscle-fuelling protein.

Avocado’s everywhere these days, including, it would seem, desserts. Fudge made from avocado and Greek yogurt might seem bizarre, but it works. Somehow, it just works.

There are no strange ingredients in these bad boys, just a whole load of excellent ones like peanut butter, honey, cashews and oats. Melted peanut butter in fact, which you drizzle over the bars. My word.

No list of dessert recipes would be complete without a brownie, and this is a doozy, with chocolate protein frosting crowning the banana, almond milk and cocoa base.
