This has to be one of my favourite oaty recipes to date!

Currently on my competition prep, I get porridge/oats twice a week so I like to make the most of them and spend time over them.

Let’s cut to the chase, here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 50g oats- I used 30g Jordan’s Chunky Jumbo Oats and 20g Quaker rolled oats
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Protein- I used Sun Warrior
  • 1 medium Courgette grated  (optional)
  • 10g chia seeds
  • Alpro Unsweetened Almond Milk – I use around 300ml
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder- Game changer!!
  • 1 tsp Little’s Chocolate Orange Coffee
  • Optional Squeeze of a fresh orange
  • Topped with 40g Vanilla Coyo- optional

Method:

  1. Pour oats, baking powder and milk into a saucepan
  2. Cook on medium until soft and fluffy
  3. Optional- add courgette
  4. Continue to cook and stir
  5. Add in protein powder, coffee and chia seeds
  6. May need to add more milk- I like might less thick
  7. Add orange juice and stir – if using
  8. Take off of the heat and leave to settle for two minutes
  9. Pour into your favourite bowl
  10. Top with yoghurt or anything your heart may desire!

These are SO tasty!

Why courgette and baking powder?

They both work to make the bowl bigger…. I am ALL about volume. Like I said, I only get oats twice a week so I will do anything I can to make them last as long as possible!

What are your favourite go-to Sunday breakfasts?

Bounty Bliss Balls

Woweeeee I made these a couple of months ago and they went down an absolute storm, so now you can make them too! It’s also another FANTASTIC way to add Little’s flavoured coffees into your life!


Ingredients:

500g date paste

105g unflavoured protein (3 scoops)

2 tsp Little’s Swiss Chocolate Coffee 

1 heaped tbsp raw cacao powder

1tbsp maple syrup/ agave

3tbsp melted coconut oil

1 cup dessicated coconut

Coating:

3tbsp melted coconut oil

2tbsp raw cacao powder

Method:

• Melt 3 tbsp coconut oil, stir in 35g protein and dessicated coconut.

• Press mixture into balls in the palm of your hand. Aim for about 15

• Place on/in a freezer safe dish and pop in the freezer while you prep the rest.

• Heat date paste in the microwave for approx 20-30secs to soften

• Mix in 35g protein, raw cacao, maple syrup

• Make up black coffee using minimal water, add to the mixture and combine

•  Roll mixture out and cut into 15 circles ( I shamelessly used the rim of a wine glass)

•  Remove coconut balls from the freezer

• Wrap the date mixture around the coconut balls making sure there aren’t any holes/gaps in the mixture

•  Repeat for all

•  To coat- melt 3tbsp coconut oil and stir in 2tbsp cacao powder

• Either roll each ball in the liquid chocolate OR drizzle over the top

• Sprinkle with a little extra dessicated coconut

•  Refrigerate to set the chocolate

• Enjoy! (Recommended serving- 2 bounty balls)


These are a delicious snack! What’s better is, you know EXACTLY what’s inside them!

You can pick up Little’s at Holland and Barrett, Wholefoods, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and online here.

You’re welcome!

It’s the LITTLE*S things….

So the lovely Will and Caroline over at Little’s coffe sent me a selection of their flavoured coffees including the new Coconut Island flavour! I’m going to be sharing with you ways to use flavoured coffee in your daily life.

It was Little’s Maple Walnut and Chocolate Caramel coffees that got me through the last few weeks of my Bikini Competition prep. In those weeks, diet is SO strict and you can’t help but crave sweet treats. So to keep those cravings at bay I’d make myself my favourite cup of Little’s and be VERY satisfied!

Keep an eye out because every week I will be sharing with you a new recipe and way to be using your coffee! Here’s my first recommendation:

LITTLE’S Bulletproof Coffee

You need: 1 mug black  Little’s Coffee + 1 tsp coconut oil

Method: Blend together your cup of coffee and coconut oil in a jug or nutribullet(esque) blender. Pour into your favourite mug. This recipe is particularly good with the Coconut Island flavour.

Honestly that is all you need to do. When blended, the coconut oil also whitens the coffee so there is not need for milk at all. So why coconut oil coffee? Coconut oil is know for its metabolic properties. It raises your metabolism causing you to burn more calories. It also serves as a form of natural energy so in a coffee you’re boosting the energy potential of your cup- the perfect pre-workout coffee!
