Serves: 8
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
  • 96g Protein Bake Mix
  • 112g Protein Drink Mix
  • 50g wholemeal flour, plus extra to dust
  • 100g reduced fat margarine [Lighter Flora], melted
  • 70ml semi-skimmed milk

Equipment: 20cm round oven tin

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3 and line the bottom of the tin with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Protein Bake Mix, Protein Drink Mix and flour. Mix in the melted margarine, then stir in the milk gradually. Use your hand to bring the mixture together into a dough by kneading for 1 minute. The mixture should be firm but sticky.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin and dip a metal spoon in a small cup of water or milk and use it to smooth it down the mixture to fill the whole tin, creating a smooth surface. Using the tines of a fork, dusted in flour, make a pattern all around the edge of the shortbread by pushing the fork tines into the mixture and making an indent. Score four lines going from one end of the tin to the other at equal intervals, so you have eight triangles within the circle. Prick the shortbread with a fork several times with in the triangles to make a spotty pattern.
  3. Bake on the bottom shelf of the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden, then allow to cool in the tin. Remove from the tin and cut where you scored the lines to create triangle pieces of shortbread.
