Protein Packed Recipes That Aren't Smoothies

 

Protein smoothies are great choices for anyone who wants to get more protein in their day without having to eat a lot of meat or fish. Although there are tons of really delicious smoothie recipes, sometimes you want a different snack option. Fortunately there are quite a few different recipes you can make with your favorite protein powder. Sure, these require you to cook and bake, but they taste great and are healthy for you!

Protein Oatmeal

– 1.5 Cup of Oats
– 1 Cup Almond Milk
– 1 Scoop Favorite Protein Powder

All you have to do is cook your oats as you normally would and then add in the protein powder once it’s finished. You can also add in some frozen or fresh berries if you want to add more nutrients. This is great with vanilla protein powder, but you can try any flavor that you have. Oatmeal with protein in it is something you can have for breakfast or even as a snack during the day.

Protein Pancakes

– 2 Scoops Protein Powder
– Water

Simply mix your choice of protein powder with enough water to make it the consistency of pancake batter. Pour the batter into a hot pan and allow it to cook on both sides until it’s golden brown. These can be a little dry, so it’s recommended to serve them with butter and honey. You can even add in nuts or berries if you want to add in additional nutrients. These are great for the entire family and are really delicious.

Protein Muffins

Simply mix all of these together and then pour them in a lined muffin pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can play around with this recipe by changing out the protein powders for other flavors or swapping the raspberries for another fruit. These can be frozen if you know you won’t be able to eat them all within a few days.

Protein Cereal
