We think we’ve found the perfect post cycle cookie. Having researched online for some of the most high in energy and protein ingredients, the final list may sound quite odd, but the flavours work really well together once baked.

You will be bouncing with energy you thought you never had after eating just one of these! We've also been busy in the kitchen experimenting with adding protein powder to some tasty recipes, try them out for yourself here:
