Use for powdered egg whites?

The grocery store had the large container of Deb el powdered egg whites on closeout. Having bought a small container of this last year to make the fantastic flour mix or better than flour mix, I bought it because the price was fantastic.

Other than the fantastic flour mix, any suggestions on ways to use this?

I make almond crackers with one cup of almond flour and one egg white. Add a pinch of salt, roll out very, very thinly on parchment or non-stick foil (put a piece of plastic wrap over the top while rolling). Use a dull knife to score into cracker shapes, and sprinkle with coarse salt, or other seasonings. Bake at 325* for about 10-12 minutes, or until browned. Easy, and tasty!

The almond thin crackers are fantastic. They can be savory or cinnamon/sweet. I forgot I have some powdered egg whites in the garage/storage.

Thanks for the reminder, I usually use a fresh egg and now I have a use for the dried!

There is no reason to be cracker deprived and these are very low carb and low calorie!

i would think you could add the egg whites to protein drinks or mocha powder. it's always a good thing to add protein to your diet. sure keeps my metabolism revved.

Adding extra protein can be problematic for those of us with CKD....with that in mind, I not only count carbs, calories & fat, I count protein. Ugh, it was so much easier when I was in my 40's!

Epicurious has some excellent recipes for meringue cookies - but not necessarily the sort of meringues where you have to whip the whites to stiff peaks first so that tends to be a good use for powdered eggwhites.

There's a very good recipe for almond and pine nut cookies on Epicurious that's very popular with people for whom I bake.

Are you interested in sweet or savoury uses for the eggwhites?

Both. Thanks for the suggestion about meringue recipes on Epicurious.
