We know how important it is to take 10 minutes for yourself to relax and recharge (stay tuned for more on this on the Neat blog tomorrow…), even if that’s just a quick breather mid-afternoon to sit down and enjoy a good cuppa. So, to help make sure those precious few minutes are the luxurious break you truly need, here’s 10 of our favourite recipes to enjoy as a high-protein sweet snack mid-afternoon. Because after all, what would a tea break be without a treat to go alongside? Go on, pop the kettle on! 


Banana Pecan Muffins

Banana Nut Protein Muffin Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

There’s something about the cake-y texture of a mini muffin that makes it the most satisfying snack to devour with a good brew. These are naturally sweet and malty thanks to the banana and coconut sugar and gently spiced with cinnamon.

Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins

Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffin Protein Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

Not a banana fan? Try this zesty take instead. Complete with a delightfully sweet icing and a poppy seed crunch - what's not to like?

PB and Choc Chip Protein Balls

Choc Chip Peanut Butter Protein Ball Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

An afternoon sweet treat doesn’t always have to mean fancy baked goods; it can be as simple as these 3-ingredient peanut butter protein balls. They take less than 10 minutes to knock up from start to finish, so there’s no excuses for not snacking in style…

Peanut Butter Protein Brownies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Brownie Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

When pals pop over on the weekend, there’s nothing that will impress them more than a tray of these protein brownies. With a gooey banana and peanut butter centre, you’ll struggle to believe that they’re vegan-friendly, gluten and soy free...

Nutella Protein Balls

Nutella Protein Ball Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

If you’re a chocolate fanatic (although, who isn’t?) you’ll be a fan of these chocolatey Nutella-esque protein bites. Technically they'll last in the fridge for up to a week, but they certainly didn't last that long at Neat HQ!

Vegan Chocolate Cookies 

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

Although we're advocates for living a healthy lifestyle, we're all about balance here at Neat, and sometimes a really delicious chocolate chip cookie is exactly what the doctor ordered! This recipe is made using our chocolate vegan protein, is 100% plant based and can easily be made gluten free; but don't be fooled, they taste just like the real deal! Anyone for tea and cookies?

Nutty Pumpkin Loaf Cake

Nutty Pumpkin Protein Loaf Cake Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

Yes, you heard us right, it's a vegetable-packed cake! This might sound a little odd, but pumpkin is surprisingly tasty in sweet desserts and is perfectly complimented here with cinnamon and chopped nuts. Although it still tastes great cool, we really love this gooey loaf cake fresh from the oven or cool with a spoonful of nut butter.

Carrot and Walnut Cupcakes

Carrot and Walnut Protein Cupcake Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

You can't go wrong with a classic carrot and walnut cake! These cute little cupcakes are really easy to make and come out super light, fluffy and not to mention moist (sorry!)…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie Recipe | Neat Nutrition. Protein Powder Subscriptions.

Another cookie recipe, for those of you looking to snack smarter. Not only are they sugar free, but they are packed full of protein and made using spelt flour which means they are great for those following a FODMAP diet. The perfect cookie to offer out to friends or colleagues when the kettle goes on - we guarantee they’ll be begging for the recipe!
