Crazy about Nutella

You all know I love chocolate and hazelnuts.  It is by far my most favourite food combination ever.  In the universe.   Judging by the Nutella body of evidence, most of the world seems to concur. If you have been around this blog long enough or, at least, have paid attention, you also know I…

Mocha Protein Bars

I thank the gods for chocolate every day.  These days I am even more thankful for chocolate.  Because while I am unable to bake anything that I could possibly deem blog worthy in my recalcitrant oven, I can still play with chocolate.    Hooray for chocolate! Well, actually, I’ve been busy with my Easter chocolate selection…

Hot Cross Protein Bombs!

Because Hot Cross Buns are just …. so last Easter 😀 Well, okay, big call.  Will undoubtedly fail to substantiate that one but you know, there are only so many hot cross buns I can eat before I run smack up against my carbohydrate allowance for the day. Things are slow here in the Chocolate…

Chocolate Strawberry Protein Loaf

I rather like the idea of chocifying the world.  Heck, the whole universe is better with a little chocolate shared around. If someone tells me they don’t like brussel sprouts, my response is usually … Well, you can’t be expected to love all the foods. But, if someone tells me they don’t like chocolate, it’s…

The Pros of Carrot Cake

The weather has started to turn lately and it is now very obviously Autumn here.  We have even reverted back to non-daylight-savings time.  It gets darker earlier and the nights are cooler (mostly).  Today it started to rain.  A grey, dismal afternoon, with the promise of a week of more rain to come. Good weather…

Coconut Protein Bread

More protein bread.  More protein recipes.  Well, yes.  Part of me getting off to a good start in 2013.  This is good, yes? 🙂 Also, there are likely to be some traditional dessert type recipes cropping up here soon, what with the merry-go-round of birthdays and such that will start in a few weeks here…

Banana Chocolate Protein Bars

  It’s time … remember I made those Strawberry Ripe protein bars a while ago, using freeze-dried fruit?  They are the bomb. The thing with protein bars is that you really want to be able to pack them into your lunch box or bag or wherever you keep your snacks or post workout stuff when…

Banana Chocolate Chunk Protein Bread

You’d be forgiven for wondering why the number of recipes pairing bananas and chocolate on this blog are proliferating.  Well, the truth is … I really love bananas with chocolate.  But I’ve also found that bananas, like berries, are a fruit that I can eat and enjoy without fear of a nasty GI Jane backlash…

Strawberry Ripe Protein Bars

Strawberry Ripe?  Don’t you mean Cherry Ripe?  Don’t you have a thing for Cherry Ripe?  Bounty Bars.  You also like those, right? Yes, I do have a thing for Cherry Ripe and Bounty Bars … oh wait, you read the blog!  😉   But it’s really hard finding freeze-dried cherries and I just wanted to…

Whey To Go Protein Bread

We’re clearly on a fitness bender over at my place now.  Well … *looks around in vain* … at least I am.  No fear.  Desserts, cakes, pastry, whatever coming up again soon what with a few birthdays and an anniversary looming at the end of February.  I promised badass proper truffles too, didn’t I? Just…
