View Full Version : Need help baking with protein powder!

Hey guys, does anyone here bake brownies or cookies with protein powder?

Do you guys recommend any basic chocolate flavored cookies, a link would be appreciated. THere are so many out there, just wanted a recommendation.

I am not sure if it's possible to bake cookies with an approximate calorie value.

Say 100 calories per cookie, and 8 grams of protein in each one, rest of calories from fat and carbs.

I have absolutely no experience in baking cakes and the likes.

Just go for it.

Add up the total calories and then figure how many cookies you need to make to hit your target.

Same here I feel like a fairy...but damn I got obsessed with those subway cookies. Now I want to make something similar except with lots of protein.

i made peanut butter (with white chocolate shhhhh..) cookies and added whey to the mix. they turned out tasting good but after like 1-2 hours they got HARD so yeah, not sure how to fix that.

so if you make some be sure to eat all of them fast ha

There are some pretty good no-bake cookies that use protein powder. You could give those a try.

Awww.. ewwww man wtf I tried it and it was HHORRIBLLEEEE.

I messed it up. I added 2 extra eggs, a tiny bit of extra baking soda, and 5 scoops of milk protein isolate. I also messed up on the Vanilla extract, I used 1 tablespoon instead of one TEASpoon


Never again will I try baking.
