The majority of people struggle to consume enough protein on a daily basis, which is why protein powders come in very handy. Protein powders are affordable, convenient, versatile, tasty, and an easy way to bump up your protein intake.
Despite what you may think, there are several ways to implement protein powders into your diet. You can make a shake, smoothie, add a scoop to your oatmeal, cereal, or coffee, and even bake with it!
If you want to bake/cook with protein powder, it's important to note that certain types of protein powder are better than others. Typically, plant-based protein powders, such as American Made Nutrition VEGAMN, tend to handle heat better than dairy-based protein powders.
In other words, baking/cooking with whey protein tends to dry out the food and create a rubbery texture. Whereas, plant-based protein (rice/pea protein) retains the food's moisture and results in a softer, more enjoyable texture. So if you use a different protein powder as opposed to VEGAMN in any of our recipes, they likely won't be as good.
To showcase the versatility of VEGAMN, we wanted to share one of our favorite protein-packed recipes with all of you!
