I've been experimenting with oatmeal protein powder concoctions and just baked my first batch of oatmeal protein cookies. These things are damn good although i need to work out some kinks(There a little dry). Here's what i did

1.5 cups of protein powder(I used my whey/caseinate blend with splenda from protein factory)
about 7 egg whites(enough so that when you mix everything you have a nice, somewhat fluid mixture)
1.5 cups of Oats
sweetener of your choice
either some olive oil or a good amount of cooking spray(I used spray and don't think i used enough)

bake for about 25 minutes at 400 F
they will fluff up quit a bit when you bake
makes 4 gigantic protein cookies(about 5 inches in diameter and an inch thick

approximate nutritional breakdown:
1 cookie:
2grams of fat(good fat from oats)
18g carbs
30g protein

haha, with 7 egg whites i'm not suprised they blow up!

I was making cookies today, just not with protein powder.

Last time i tried with protein powder the outside went a lush crispy brown but the inside was goo.

thanks for the tip doc. I've been winging it pretty much, using what i have. Do you think some baking soda would help?

baking soda will help things rise. with less egg whites you may need some
If their to flat then add some to puff 'em up

Try sumthin like:

2 cups chocolate protein powder
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups uncooked oatmeal
Melt the peanut butter, mix it all together, add a few tablespoons of honey for consistency and to make it sticky. Throw some nuts, raisins or shredded coconut in there if ya want. Press it into a 13x9 pan (You should probably line your pan with waxed paper cuz it's gonna make a mess otherwise) then throw it all in the fridge. No baking and it's easy.

I can't remember who suggested that to me originally... or if that's even what they suggested, but that's what I've done when I just can't choke down anymore nastyass protein bars and know I won't have time for a real meal.

I think a few whole eggs wouldn't hurt, seeing as we're all quite active, and eggs are good for you, dammit.

Worm, if you perfect that, make sure to post it. Sounds good, but I'm too greedy to waste my whey on cookies that I'm not sure will work!

Found this recipe that I'm gonna try..:

2 Level scoops of chocolate soy or whey-based protein powder
1 Tablespoon of natural peanut butter
1/4 Cup steel cut oatmeal*
4 Egg whites
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 Cup unsweetened applesauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the egg whites and uncooked oatmeal. Add the remaining ingredients.
Spray a nonstick cooking spray in an 8"x8" baking dish. Spread the mixture in an even layer, over the bottom of the dish. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the edge starts to pull away from the sides of the dish.

Let cool for 5 minutes and cut into bars.

Makes 9 bars.

* Steel cut oats refers to the basic chopping of oats from their original form.

Rolled oats are actually processed and lose nutrients in the transition. Rolled oats are the most common form (think Quaker) found in the grocery store chains.

Steel cut oats are available at most health food stores. They are usually sold in bulk and are often called Irish oats.

An equal amount of regular rolled oats can be substituted.
