They’re perfect as a post-workout reward that will definitely hit that sweet spot, or you could earn brownie points (and star baker status) by making up a batch at the weekend for your friends and family.

Makes 4



  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°
  2. Firstly, prepare a clean work surface or chopping board with a light sprinkling of plain flour (this is to make sure that the pastry doesn’t stick).
  3. Then, roll out a sheet of puff pastry, smoothing it out lightly with your fingertips. Use a knife to cut it into quarters. Keep 1 quarter on the chopping board and set aside the other 3 for now.
  4. Get your Protein Spread and use a spatula to scoop out a generous amount from the jar. Spread it evenly across the pastry, making sure you cover from edge to edge.
  5. Next, carefully roll up the square of pastry, then use a sharp knife to cut lengthways down the roll so that you have two long pieces.
  6. Form a twist by wrapping each of the pieces around one another. Pinch the pastry together at top and bottom of the twist.
  7. Repeat for the other 3 pieces of pastry, then place all of the twists onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  8. Brush each chocolate twist with egg wash (beaten egg).
  9. Bake for around 15 minutes, until the pastry has turned golden brown. Enjoy!
