Protein Recipes That Actually Taste Good

You only eat so much chicken and broccoli before craving something else, and protein shakes get old quickly. After a while, that tub of vanilla whey gets used less and less as something with more flavor is craved.

Thankfully, there are simple ways to sneak protein into delicious food. Here are 4 amazing, easy meal and snack recipes that incorporate protein powder without sacrificing flavor.

PROTEIN PANCAKES

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Oats
  • 1/2 scoop Protein Powder
  • 1/4 cup Cottage Cheese
  • 3 Eggs or 1/2 cup Egg Whites

Instructions

  • 1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until you form a batter.
  • 2. Heat griddle to medium-high heat.
  • 3. Use fat-free cooking spray or a dab of butter to grease pan.
  • 4. Pour batter until desired pancake size.
  • 5. Flip and cook to golden brown.

Tip

For extra protein, put peanut butter on your pancakes instead of butter. You can also add chia seeds to the batter before cooking for more protein, fiber, and omega-3's. If you have a sweet tooth, add berries and top with whipped cream.

PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN COOKIES

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/4 cups Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 scoops (60 grams) Protein Powder (Natural or Vanilla)
  • 1 1/4 cups Sweetener
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 3 Eggs

Instructions

  • 1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • 2. Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  • 3. Shape dough into "golf ball"-sized balls and place on pan.
  • 4. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.

Tip

Press the tops of the dough balls with a fork to make them cook evenly and flatter. Add chocolate chips for extra sweetness.

BLUEBERRY PROTEIN MUFFINS

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1-2 scoops Protein Powder (Natural or Vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup Stevia Sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 3 Mashed Bananas
  • 1/3 cup Milk (Regular, Almond, or Coconut)
  • 1 cup Applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries

Instructions

  • 1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, Stevia, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and protein powder).
  • 2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl, except blueberries (egg whites, bananas, milk, and applesauce).
  • 3. Gradually mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. After all the ingredients are together, gently mix in blueberries.
  • 4. Drop spoonfuls into a non-stick muffin tin or muffin cups halfway (a generous tablespoon).
  • 5. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.

Tip

Add your favorite nuts for extra flavor and protein.

PROTEIN OATMEAL

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup Milk (Regular, Almond, or Coconut)
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

Instructions

  • 1. Bring the milk and oats to a bowl and then simmer for 3-5 minutes until you get a thick porridge.
  • 2. Remove from heat and let cool. Add protein powder and mix.

Tip

Wait for the oatmeal to cool before adding protein, or the whey will curdle. Oatmeal is pretty versatile. Add honey, berries, orange, vanilla, or yogurt to get your favorite flavor.
