What is your favorite LC recipe using protein powder?

I've never bought it and just wondering how to use it in recipes?

I have a protein shake every morning for breakfast. I use my Magic Bullet to mix them or else a hand blender works great. Here's 2 of my favorites right now:

Pumpkin Pie Shake

2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons Cool Whip Lite® or
2 tablespoons heavy cream
6 ounces water
1 packet Splenda
1 dash allspice
1 dash pumpkin pie spice
1 dash cinnamon
3 ice cubes
30g vanilla protein powder

Blend thoroughly.



Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake

30g vanilla protein powder -- (or enough to equal 30 gms protein)
1 tablespoon sugar free instant vanilla pudding
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 packet artificial sweetener
a few dashes of butter flavored sprinkles or butter extract (Butter Buds)
6 ounces water
3 ice cubes -- (3 to 4)

Add all ingredients to blender whip and serve!

Dizneegirl's Easy Vanilla Flax Pancakes

1 scoop vanilla whey protein
1/8 - 1/4 cup flax meal
1 egg
1 Tbs. oil (or melted butter or coconut oil)
2 Tbs. DaVinci sf syrup (or cream/half and half/etc. + sugar sub to taste)
dash salt

Mix, pour onto hot greased griddle/pan. When top of pancake looks somewhat dry, lift one side & look at bottom... when golden brown, flip and cook second side to golden brown.

Dizneegirl's Vanilla Flax Muffins

2 eggs
4 packets Splenda packets
1 dash salt
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup oil
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 scoops Designer Whey, French Vanilla
1/2 cup flax meal
2 teaspoons baking powder

Mix all ingredients and let rest for about 5 minutes, or until it doubles in size. Fill well-greased muffin tinsand bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, until dry looking and a nice light-gold. Remove from pan and let cool. Makes 6 muffins.

CarolynF has a good recipe for protein bars using whey protein. A search for whey protein, protein powder, or Designer Whey on the recipe help board will probably turn up more recipes using it.

ETA: These are really good...

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Dry ingredients:
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1 cup vanilla protein powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups granular Splenda or Diabetisweet

Wet ingredients:
1 egg
2 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
14 tablespoons butter - softened
2 tablespoons oil
4 Carbolite dark chocolate candy bars

Add egg mixture to dry mixture and mix well.
Add butter and oil and blend well.
Chop up 4 Carbolite bars and add chocolate chunks Stir together until incorporated. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop dough by large spoonfuls.

Bake in at 350 degrees oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I bought my Magic Bullet just to mix protein shakes..my current favorite is..

1/4 cup Half & half
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
white chocolate da vinci syrup-to taste
3-4 drops fiberfit or stevia plus
3-4 strawberries
crushed ice

This tastes great and it keeps me full 4-5 hours.

[COLOR=Red]This is not my recipe but it is good [/COLOR]


"No cook fudge"
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
1 stick of butter
2 oz. cream cheese
1 cup of granular Splenda
2 scoops of vanilla Designer Protein Whey powder

Melt the peanut butter and butter in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave for an additional 1 minute. Use a 2 quart size bowl as it will bubble up and over if you use a smaller one. Stir in 2 oz. of cream cheese. Stir in Splenda. Then stir in 2 scoops of the of the Designer Vanilla Whey powder ( the scoop comes in the container). Pour into a small dish that has been greased with butter . I use a 1 quart corningware square dish. Place the bowl in the refrigerator until cold and setup. Cut into 20 squares for a carb count of 2.2 per piece. If you just can't wait for the fudge to set up place in the freezer for a while.

: Just a note about peanut butter. Lately, I've been buying natural peanut butter made with Valencia peanuts. From what I've read, Valencia peanuts are grown in dry climates, therefore avoiding fungus problems of other peanuts, yuk! I found the Valencia peanut butter is less bitter and therefore tastes a little sweeter and it does have a creamier consistency. You can find this PB at Trader Joes or the 365 brand at Whole Foods.
