ginger crunch

Our baked ginger protein crunch is rich in protein and energy and is a great indulgent dessert or snack which goes hand in hand with vanilla yoghurt. We weren’t too sure how well the crystallised ginger was going to taste here, but we were left wishing we had added more!

We loaded this small batch with 2 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder to show you another interesting way to introduce more protein into your diet.

If you're not used to the taste of vanilla protein powder, it can be quite strange at first, so make you try it first before making any of our protein powder recipes.


  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1/4 of a cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 of a cup of coconut milk
  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of apple cinnamon protein cereal
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of chopped almonds
  • 1/2 a cup of crystallised ginger
  • 1/4 of a cup of shredded coconut
giner crunch ingredients


Preheat oven to 160°C/Gas mark 3.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, on a low heat, adding the maple syrup, milk and protein powder and leave to cool.

In large bowl, add the cereal, oats, almonds and 3/4 of the ginger pieces. Pour the cooled melted butter mixture over these dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly.

Transfer the mixture into deep baking dish and compress down to make it form a solid mould.

Sprinkle the shredded coconut and remaining ginger pieces and bake for 20 minutes.

Once cooled, spoon into a bowl and add some vanilla yoghurt.

The healthy bit

One scoop of whey protein powder provides 22 grams of protein, a vital building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Almonds contain high amounts of vitamin E and magnesium.
