Using Protein Powders in Recipes

If you are like me, you like to give in to temptation sometimes and eat something delightfully decadent, and yet not good for you waist line. You may also have children (like me) who are vegetarian and yet you do not feel they are getting sufficient protein. I submit the following solution! Substitute some protein powder for flour in some of your baking recipes!

I know this sounds too good to be true, but I promise you it works amazingly. Doing this I have actually made some pretty tasty waffles, pancakes, donut holes, cakes, cookies, breads, and muffins! My current personal preference is to use Pea or Rice Protein. It's quite easy to do, just substitute part of the flour that you are going to put in the recipe with an equal part of one of the above proteins. If you are making something sweet I recommend the Vanilla flavor. If it's something savory I recommend the unflavored. That's all there is to it!

Now you can go out and make some delicious treats for yourself (maybe your kids too. If they're good :-) ) and feel somewhat good about it knowing that you are adding some protein to the recipe, you know, for health! Heck you can even enjoy a protein cookie after a hard workout!

I posted my Pancake and Waffle recipes!
