Hey folks, if i was gonna bake some protein cakes or cookies how would i go about doing it?

Also, would baking a cake with protein powder in it denature the protein? I've never been too certain about this one...


08-29-2001, 11:46 AM
why should it. you do bake chicken and turkey do you.

08-29-2001, 02:33 PM
Chigs, there was a post about this a few weeks ago. Its got a bunch of recipes for protein bars and stuff like that. In fact I think there's two different threads on the subject. Not sure though.

08-29-2001, 04:32 PM
hmmm....i think what spidey is so nicely suggesting is that you USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION chigs. :D


08-29-2001, 05:01 PM
Actually... I think he's saying "Damned if I am looking but if you wanna find it go for it." :D

08-29-2001, 05:09 PM

or maybe this one:

1 scoop of Promax protein, use a sive to remove all lumps.
1 Pinch of salt 1 Whole egg (small)
150ml of skimmed milk, use low lactose type
65gms flour - wholewheat, non raising.

How to prepare:
Add the flour to a bowl by placing it through a sieve. This will remove any lumps that exist and make mixing easier. Then add the Promax protein powder also through a sive to remove any lumps. Flavour is your choice, but banana or chocolate compliment the pancakes well. Next, add the whole egg and beat the whole mix with a wooden spoon. Gradually add the milk, drawing in the sides to form a smooth batter.
Next, heat up a pan and wipe some olive or sunflower oil to stop the batter sticking. Pour in enough batter to thinly coat the pan.

Thin pancakes taste better than big thick ones and cook far quicker. Cook batter in this way, mix up your topping and serve accordingly.
Some people prefer to mix the batter in a blender. If you do this add the egg and milk first, then the flour and only process for no more than 3-4 seconds. You can add sugar, fructose or dextrose to the formula. This will make it sweeter for people with that kind of taste bud.

flap jacks!

where are you finding these?

08-30-2001, 12:13 PM
I did a search using yahoo with this paramter:

"pancake" AND "protein powder" AND "recipe"

or cake or cookie, or whatever.

08-30-2001, 12:24 PM
so do one for flap jacks then biatch!

08-30-2001, 12:31 PM
a pancake is a flap jack, doofus.

08-30-2001, 12:36 PM
Where, in the blue hell do you live wina?

Pan cakes = pan cakes.

Flap jacks = flap jacks.

They are two completely different things!

08-30-2001, 12:38 PM
ok....what the hell is a flap jack then?

08-30-2001, 12:48 PM
Hard to explain actually!

Like oatmeal busicuits with honey.

That's the best i can think of.

08-30-2001, 12:51 PM
okay....i'm doing some research, and i came up with some sort of oaten substance...but i have no idea what that would be called in English...;)

let me try to figure this out.

08-30-2001, 12:55 PM
is this a typical recipe for it?


8oz Margarine,
8oz Demerara Sugar,(or soft brown)
1lb Oats,
6oz Golden Syrup,


Place margarine, sugar and syrup in the microwave for 6 minutes
add oats and thoroughly mix.

Flattern mixture into tin, (30cm x20cm approx)
Cook for 20 to 30 minutes at 180 centigrade.

08-30-2001, 01:19 PM
Damn! Nice recipes Tryska ma' darlin. ;) I may have to try a few of those. :)

08-30-2001, 01:22 PM
hey thanks spidey...let me know how they turn out if you try them.....i just found them - they're not my recipes..so if they suck..blame the world wide web..*lol*

08-30-2001, 01:34 PM
that sounds like the money tina, so how do i make it a protein flap jack?

08-30-2001, 01:40 PM
k, chigs.....since that's the recipe, there's not much wiggle room in it. From what i'm reading, protein powder is used to replace some or all of the flour in a recipe...and well, since there is no flour, it makes it kinda difficult.....how about an oatmeal cookie instead? the way i figure it....the consistency will be a bit different, but perhaps, swap out the raisins for honey or syrup or whatever? skip the cinnamon? it will be similar, but not quite.


1 cup old-fashioned (that's the slow-cooking) oats
2 scoops vanilla whey or other vanilla protein powder
4 eggwhites
1/2 tsp. baking powder
cinnamon to taste
1/4 cup raisins

Combine dry ingredients, then add eggwhites. You may need to add some water, depending on your protein powder. Then add the raisins. You can cook these in the pan somewhat like pancakes like I first did or drop them on a non-stick cookie sheet like conventional cookies. It's a pretty flexible recipe--you can go down to about 1/2 cup of oats if you like (if you want lower carbs), or just use one scoop or protein, or only 3 eggs and use more water to make it the right consistency, etc. I think unflavored protein works fine, too. Or you could emit the raisins and cinnamon and opt for some other flavored protein to make chocolate, etc. cookies. These are really nice because they're healthy and full of protein but are fulfilling when you're needing a little something that feels like cheating. Enjoy!

For those of you interested, I just read through the latest Muscle & Fitness and it has some good recipes for cookies, brownies and cake in there. They seem pretty good. Yet I have not made any of'em yet.

09-01-2001, 05:10 PM
Yo mamma sounds good, but I have not eaten her yet :p

Thanks Tryska for the recipes.

09-01-2001, 10:44 PM
Ah-ha...here is something I discovered this morning:
vanilla protein powder + egg + skim milk = the most horrible pancake-things you'll ever taste. I tried drenching them in sugarfree syrup and they wound up tasting even worse. I've never been able to make syrup make anything taste WORSE. Absolutely positively a failure. Lesson learned.
