7 Fantastic Recipes to Make with Protein Powder That Taste like Dessert ...

Most people who read my blog The Soulful Spoon know how much I love finding new recipes to make with protein powder.

I’m always on the hunt for a delicious pancake or muffin recipe that uses protein powder instead of flour, and I honestly don’t know if I could go a day without using protein powders in my daily smoothies.

I adore them to no end!

I’m pretty strict about consuming only the cleanest varieties of protein powders out there, since there are some pretty sketchy ones on the market alongside the healthy ones.

Yet, when you use the right protein powder, a recipe can be transformed into a low glycemic, lean muscle-fueling and hunger squashing creation that tastes incredibly indulgent!

Check out these fantastic recipes to make with protein powder below and you’ll never feel deprived from junk food again!

Once you’ve had some of the filling, delicious recipes, chances are you’ll keep protein powder stockpiled shamelessly like I do!

1. Red Velvet Protein Bars

Red Velvet Protein Bars

One of my favorite types of recipes to make with protein powder is homemade protein bars.

Not only are they leaner, cleaner and tastier, but they are much easier to create fun flavors out of, for less money overall.

You can literally throw any flavor boosters you want into homemade protein bars, like these delicious Red Velvet Protein Bars by Kammie at Sensual Appeal blog.

I love Kammie’s blog, because she uses protein powders in many of her recipes to create a divine concoction that looks like a calorie bomb, yet quite the opposite is true.

Kammie’s recipes are incredibly low-cal and high in protein, low in sugar and gluten-free.

Check out these bars, which are one of my favorites by this protein pro!

Ingredients:

¼ C vanilla protein powder

2 + 2 T coconut flour, separated

2 T almond flour

2 T Coco Cardio (you can buy online or use cocoa powder)

½ C almond milk

¼ tsp vanilla extract

¼ C dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Add the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.

Add almond milk by 1/4 cupful and mix.

Add the rest of the milk in the bowl and mix still.

If the batter is still too liquidy add the other Tbsp of coconut flour.

The batter is supposed to be thick enough to mold into shapes.

Take a little bit of the thick batter and shape into balls.

Once you’ve formed them into balls, press and mold them into the shape of bars and put on parchment paper.

Put the bars in the fridge for a couple of minutes to harden.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or on the stove and once it’s melted dip the bars into the chocolate to coat.

Scoop the rest of the melted chocolate onto the bars with a spoon.

Put in the fridge for at least an hour.

Remove from fridge and enjoy!
