I recently staggered home with what can only be described as the world’s biggest box of protein, as Muscle Food very kindly sent me a selection of goodies to try.
Muscle Food are an online company selling a high quality selection of protein products – from steaks to shakes and spreads and supplements. This means they’re a one stop shop for bulk buying good quality meat, ordering your favourite nut butters or finding the naughty but nice treats that half of instagram put in their flex bowls.
I think this is really useful because when I do my weekly shop I can get 70% of the things I want and I then have to go somewhere else to buy my favourite nut butter, yoghurt, quiona and the more hard to find staples, and then somewhere else again for things like cacao, protein powder and coconut oil. Having them all available in one online store is really helpful as well as a cost effective way of making sure you have a nutritious and mixed diet, especially when it comes to buying meat. I have really struggled with buying good quality and ethically sourced meat that is affordable ever since first being a student six years ago.
Whilst a lot of online groceries also offer a variety of products to be delivered to your door, Muscle Food has the edge for me because of their chilled delivery which means the meats inside are chilled and fresh for up to 48 hours. This meant my order arrived at my work and I was able to not rush around to find a fridge, but take it home with me and unpack at the end of the day.
I’ve created new recipes and adapted some of my old favourites to make them extra nutritious with my Muscle Food products and I’ll be sure to share them with you all here. In the meantime if you would like to have a giant box of fresh deliciousness delivered to you with four chicken breasts for free then head to Muscle Food and add the code PW251398.
Onto the recipe! When I opened up my box to discover a jar of Nuts’n’more Coconut Peanut Butter spread, combining two of my favourite things, I suspected I was about to try something incredible. I wasn’t wrong.
I created these as a delicious and filling snack to have in response to a sweet tooth or a post workout treat.
1/2 cup of oats
1/4 cup of desiccated coconut
4 tablespoons of coconut peanut spread
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
Optional: chia seeds
Simply blend all the ingredients except the chia seeds in a food processor and chill the dough in a fridge for about 20 minutes so it’s rollable but not too stiff.
Roll the mixture into balls and in chia seeds if using, and then store in the fridge and enjoy.
