Great thread! Hope to see some more recipes up here. I'm dying to try Jamie Eason's recipe! When I find a great recipe, I will post one up here asap. I tried making oatmeal with protein powder once, and omgosh, I must of added it wrong, because it came out sooooo bad! I used the Isopure banana flavored ( that I am trying to get rid of since my husband can not take it anymore, due to allergies) and it came out gummy, chunky, and yucky! You can only imagine... =) Today I just bought sun warrior's chocolate protein powder, and boy it was good!

these are my first attempt at making homemade protein bars with whey. they were pretty good. i froze them and just warmed one up in the microwave when i wanted a bar. you could easily cut more of the calories but using sugar substitute and egg substitute in these, too. also, you could add different fruits, like blueberries, raisins, prunes, cherries, cranberries, banana, etc.
Take two scoops of chocolate-flavored whey protein, add 2T (32g) natural peanut butter, then slooooowly add warm water while stirring till it gets to the consistency of cake batter. Add 1/2 c. frozen berries and put the whole mixture in the freezer for 10 minutes so it chills. It tastes like cake batter or delicious pudding and it has a TON of protein!
I have a recipe that I have posted for protein balls with flaxseed which calls for nonfat dry milk but I substitute half of the amount called for in the recipe with protein powder (I use whey protein powder-vanilla ice cream flavor-delicious). These little snacks are better than a granola bar.
Here is a link to Jamie Eason's recipe for her "Oh Baby!" Carrot cake protein bars. I've made this one several times. I substitute Organic Sucanat for the Splenda because I don't like artificial sweeteners. (It changes the nutritional value slightly) I've also made it with canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) and it is very good! I love treating myself to baked goods, so this is a way to incorporate protein plus a little bit of veggies into dessert or a snack. I recommend keeping them in the refrigerator to make them last longer. Enjoy!
just buy protein that can be used for cooking(optimum nutrition has one) remember the protein makes everything dry, so it depends on how your protein, carb, fat ratio is. you can hide the protein well if you can eat a lot of fat in your diet. Ivan
Hi all, I am interested in knowing if others have any creative cooking ideas for protein powder. We all know what we can shake it or blend it with, but I am interested in actual recipes to integrate that protein, because sometimes, I would rather chew. I have seen some protein pancake ideas in Oxygen mag. Any others? Thanks!
