You might think you have to be sooo restrictive and never indulge in sweet treats to lose weight or improve your body composition. I used to think this too, but I was wrong!
Every time I would try to lose weight, I would give up all my favorite foods and eat the strictest of diets. I would see results for a short period of time until I couldn’t take the restriction anymore and I would dive head first into a box of chocolate chip cookies or a whole cheesecake (you too? or just me?).
If you’re anything like me, you love sweet treats and you can’t - and don’t want to - live without them.
This is exactly why I created Protein Bakes!
A way to indulge in all your favorite desserts, while also still hitting your protein targets for the day, reaching your fat loss goals, and feeling good and satisfied in the process!
I’m proof of it! I spent the last 6 months developing these recipes, pretty much eating 1-2 desserts every single day (there were a lot of failed attempts 😂), and you would think I would have gained weight. But nope! Surprisingly I got leaner in the process, and my digestion is better than ever!
What makes Protein Bakes different and so special?
The recipes support fat loss and muscle building!
All of the recipes in the e-book are high in protein, something you hardly ever find in a dessert. So, you can still indulge in these desserts and hit your protein needs for the day. Hello, building muscle and losing fat while eating dessert!
The recipes support gut health, hormones, and overall detoxification!
All of the ingredients in these recipes not only support fat loss, but they also support your gut health, hormones, and overall health. No nutrient-less food here!
They taste delicious!
Most high-protein desserts taste like cardboard. And when they don’t, the protein is so low (and calories are so high), that you’ll need to eat bland nutrient-less chicken breast the rest of the day to meet your protein and caloric needs. None of that rubbish here!
These are not your typical paleo or keto or “healthy” dessert recipes!
Most “paleo” or so-called “healthy” dessert recipes are made out of nut flours and nut butters that are full of polyunsaturated fatty acids, oxalates, and phytic acid.
These compounds not only inhibit the absorption of certain minerals, like zinc, iron, and calcium, but they also inhibit digestion, leading to digestive dysfunction, thyroid issues, and hormonal imbalances.
These “paleo” and “healthy” desserts are also usually void of any muscle-building protein, leading to those extra calories going straight into your fat cells.
I’ve left the nut flours and nut butters completely out of this recipe book and instead filled them up with metabolism-boosting protein!
Why is protein so important, you may ask? Protein is not only essential for fat loss and performance, but it’s also necessary for proper detoxification, gut health, and increasing energy levels.
Most of us hardly get enough protein for our basic, physiological needs, nevermind getting enough protein to change our body composition (i.e. lose fat and gain muscle).
With Protein Bakes, you get to eat the most delicious sweet treats while supporting your fat loss, muscle building, and overall health. Win win!
Does this sound like just the thing you need to keep you on track with your health and fat loss goals? I thought so too…
Protein Bakes Reviews...
"Don’t hesitate or waste any more time searching for 'healthy' treats or bakes! Amanda has created a game-changing cookbook which provides not only a nutritional approach but also none of the common calorie-free crap and pseudo-healthy alternative BS! I’ve had the pleasure of tasting a few of the recipes and I can honestly say it’s the best high-protein dessert cookbook."
- Ryan Carter @livevitae, registered nutritionist
"As someone with an aggressive sweet tooth, a passion for health, and a lover of all things food and functional health, consider my standards HIGH.
For years, I’ve searched for sweet treats that would cover my nutritional bases (support my protein needs, stabilize blood sugar, and provide actual nutrients).
Protein bakes checks off all of my boxes. I’ll happily eat protein bakes at any time of the day, as dessert or snack, and feel completely satiated (and so will my bottomless pit of a husband).
This book empowers you to see how you can actually support your metabolic health while enjoying delicious treats. This feels like food freedom to me.
This is your sign to spoil yourself and your loved ones with some incredible recipes!"

Who am I?
I’m Amanda, a functional nutritionist and personal trainer, annoyingly passionate about all things health, and a self-proclaimed dessert lover.
I struggled for many years with chronic gut issues, food intolerances, and an inability to lose weight, until I dove head first into learning everything I could to not only heal, but to transform my body.
Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of women and men do the same though private coaching and my Fat Loss 101 and Gut Health 101 courses.
