The Seedy Protein Base

We know that getting a good hit of protein at breakfast is a great way to start the day. This mix of powders and seeds is one way to get a mega 20g of protein into breakfast (and the mix is around 240 calories if you’re counting).

Using peanut butter powder adds the well loved peanut butter flavour without the hit of calories that 2 tablespoons of the real thing would give. Whilst it’s hard to imagine anything beating the real thing, I am a complete convert to the powder after picking up a jar on offer in Aldi recently.  Although, I will never ever be without a few jars of the real thing in my cupboards too.

You can use this as a base to add to smoothies, yoghurt or overnight oats.  If you mix this into 150ml of soya yoghurt you get another 6g of protein.  Add some berries and you’re all set for a fairly low calorie, protein packed brekkie.
