    Cooking with Protein Powder

    Shop Now
    I was wondering, is it fine to cook with protein powder? And when you do are you getting the same benefit? Kind of a random question but I was curious and since it isn't really "real food" I wasn't sure if I just treated it the same way.

    Thanks!

    Apparently you can use it as a kind of flour substitute in baking. I'd like to see what would happen to a couple of scoops of plain powder in a stew or chili after 8 hours.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    Protein muffins would be interesting. Why on earth would you want to use it for anything other than a flour substitute though? Real food is a lot cheaper and healthier (though I've used protein powders in the past).
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I've used it to make sort of an angel food cake and proceed to turn that into all sorts of delicious things (french toast, shortcake, etc). Recipe on my blog. However, I do worry about the heat denaturing it and stuff.

    I often toss some (not alot) into things when I am trying to approximate bread or set a mixture.
