32. Crispy Fried Cod Fish Sticks

These Crispy Fried Oceanic Cod Strips achieve a fantastic crunch and will become a beloved choice for both children and grown-ups. The method of preparation is straightforward and the result is utterly delightful.

31. Low Carb & Easy Strawberry Pudding

This splendid protein-rich delight is free from sugar, low on carbohydrates and high in protein, and it’s exceedingly tasty. It’s the ideal choice for breakfast, a quick nibble or an after-meal treat!

30. Protein Berry Crumble

Every now and then, all I crave is this succulent berry crisp. It may not hold the most photogenic award, but trust me, its appearance doesn’t do justice to its taste.

It’s brimming with a luscious blend of fresh raspberries, almonds, and oats. Unlike many crisps laden with sugar, this one utilizes Stevia as a substitute.

For those moments of extra indulgence, I’ll drizzle some rich whipped cream or top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

29. S’mores Protein Cookies

This isn’t just a regular assortment of cookies. Consider these as incognito s’mores, crafted into the guise of cookies.

Each hefty cookie is laced with a generous amount of protein powder and collagen.

But that’s not all the protein you’re getting. These cookies are also packed with peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and almond milk.

And naturally, what is a cookie without some sweet elements? This version brings s’mores to mind with the inclusion of chocolate and marshmallows.

28. Oreo Protein Balls

I’ve mentioned a couple of cookies and cream desserts before, but there’s one more that merits a try.

Protein treats provide a burst of energy with just the right measure of cookies and cream flavor.

These treats are the ideal afternoon energizer that pairs wonderfully with a chilled glass of milk.

27. High Protein Frozen Yogurt

The appeal of this frozen yogurt lies in its sweetness without the excessive use of sugar.

It boasts an exquisite fruity flavor derived from the mango and raspberry. For a super creamy texture, opt for full-fat Greek yogurt.

It’s recommended to consume this immediately rather than leaving it in the freezer. Otherwise, it may harden too much for optimal enjoyment.

26. Oreo Chocolate Parfait

Parfaits aren’t always about the amalgamation of fruits and granola.

This particular version serves as a sumptuous dessert, showcasing a blend of chocolate pudding, cookie crumbles, and whipped topping.

And guess what? It can be prepared in just 4 minutes!

25. Protein Rice Krispie Treats  

Recall those beloved treats from your childhood? Rice Krispie snacks are an all-time classic that’s not only simple to create, but can also be enhanced with added protein.

You’ll stick with the traditional components like marshmallows, crispy rice cereal, and butter.

The twist here is the addition of whey protein powder.

These can be left as they are, or drizzled with some dark chocolate syrup for an extra protein kick.


24. Keto Funnel Cakes

For many, funnel cakes bring back fond memories of childhood family outings to fairs.

Despite their delightful taste, these carb-loaded, oily delicacies are far from being health-friendly.

Say hello to these keto-adapted funnel cakes. With only 1 net carb, these are absolutely delicious and guilt-free.

23. Chocolate Protein Ice Cream  

What’s a better way to beat the heat than indulging in a scoop of ice cream? How about infusing some protein into every bite for an extra nutritional punch?

You can whip up this velvety chocolate ice cream right on your stovetop. That’s a boon for those without an ice cream maker.

Essential ingredients include cocoa powder, monk fruit sweetener, and protein powder.

22. Strawberry Protein Fluff

When craving something less decadent than chocolate, I opt for a serving of this airy, light dessert.

Almond milk and xanthan gum contribute to its lush texture, while the strawberry essence takes center stage.

It’s reminiscent of a glass of frothy strawberry milk in terms of taste, while its texture is all mousse.

21. Powerhouse Protein Parfaits

If a power-packed dessert is what you’re after, these delightful parfaits are your answer.

They’re loaded with plant-based ingredients and a touch of dairy. For a completely plant-based version, swap Greek yogurt with a nut-based milk.

Though these make for an excellent protein-rich dessert, they can also serve as a breakfast option for a nutritious start to your day.

20. Chocolate Workout Brownies 

While brownies might not typically spring to mind when considering health-conscious desserts, these particular ones are an exception.

Free from refined sugar and gluten, these exercise-friendly brownies won’t necessitate extended gym sessions.

The natural sweetness comes from ripe bananas and honey, providing a perfectly balanced sweetness.

The addition of nut butter lends them a gooey consistency, while also incorporating more protein, further amplified by chocolate protein powder.

19. Milkshake

This luxuriously creamy smoothie is so delectable, you’ll be tempted to savor every last drop! The double whammy of chocolate comes from chocolate-flavored ice cream and a generous drizzle of thick chocolate syrup.

Remember, the darker the chocolate, the more protein it contains.

To enhance its protein content, choose dark chocolate syrup and garnish with some dark chocolate shavings.

18. High Protein Cheesecake

Yearning for a sumptuous dessert? Here’s the perfect solution.

Start with a base of low-carb almond flour crust.

Next, layer it with a white chocolate cheesecake filling that gets its protein kick from Greek yogurt and protein powder.

Feel free to experiment with toppings or stick to the theme and drizzle white chocolate over the top, adding a handful of raspberries for good measure.

17. Chocolate Protein Pudding

Labeling this as a simple dessert would be selling it short.

With only four ingredients, you can whip up a velvety, dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate mousse in a mere 5 minutes. It really is that straightforward.

Whether it’s an afternoon snack or a late-night chocolate craving, this recipe is a quick-fix solution.

16. High-Protein Peanut Butter Cups

The classic duo of peanut butter and chocolate create some of the most irresistible desserts.

When I’m after a protein boost, I turn to these homemade delicacies.

Surpassing store-bought versions, these peanut butter cups are enveloped in dark chocolate and have a touch of vanilla from the whey protein.

With no additional sugar, these are an excellent choice if you find traditional Reese’s cups overly sweet.

12. Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Protein Cookie

If you have ever wondered how to make protein cookies, you have come to the right place! When PlantFusion got in touch with me to ask about partnering with them to show off their awesome plant-based proteins I was excited to try them in some non-traditional ways – like in a baked good! I’ve seen a lot of people online asking if you can use protein powder in baking and I’m happy to say the answer after some extensive testing is YES (for PlantFusion anyway – no promises about anyone else’s protein).
