5 Ways to Use Protein Powder That AREN'T Shakes
Hitting your protein goals for the day can be tough – and it can make protein shakes get really old, really fast. But one of the greatest things about whey protein, and specifically our blend of whey protein – is all of the diverse ways you can use it. Cooking with protein powder is easy & delicious! It bakes well, blends well and is packed with flavor so you can actually enjoy getting your protein in.
Here are five new ways to incorporate BPN Whey Protein into your diet that doesn’t involve a shaker bottle.
Pancakes generally don’t have the best reputation when it comes to being a healthy breakfast option – but that doesn’t have to be the case. Incorporating protein powder into your pancakes will not only add protein to your usual stack of flapjacks, it will add flavor, fluff and will make them much lower carb. Check out our recipe for Protein-Packed Cinnamon Roll Pancakes – you’ll never have a boring protein shake for breakfast again!
A bowl of oatmeal is a great way to start off your day, but one thing that an ordinary, plain bowl of oatmeal lacks – is protein. The good news is, our whey protein formula is a 88% whey protein + 12% casein protein blend, which is why its mixability and consistency is off the charts. It won’t make your oatmeal watery – just way more fluffier and packed with flavor. If your schedule is packed and you don’t have time to sit down and enjoy a bowl of warm oatmeal before your day gets started, opt for Overnight Oats, which is the perfect on the go option. Check out our recipe for Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats!
