Beyond the Shake -- Protein Powder Cooking
Protein Powder Cooking...Beyond the Shake by Courtney Nielsen is a new cookbook that will help you ditch boring shakes for quick and hearty protein-packed baked treats that boost metabolism and build muscle.The 200 quick-and-easy recipes provide a clever way to supercharge your diet with whey, soy, and casein while unleashing the amazing benefits of protein powder to increase energy, build muscle and boost weight loss.
The recipes draw on a variety of proteins and powder flavors for tasty items, such as Sweet Potato Pancakes, Chocolate Banana Nut Bread, Baked Buttery Dumplings, Bacon and Shallot Rolls, Monkey Mocha Coffee Cake, Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake and much, much more.
I received a copy of this cook book for review and immediately thumbed through it, tagging recipes that I wanted to try. I love buying different flavors of protein powders to boost my "bro-shakes" so the thought of actually using protein powder to cook is amazing to me.
Since receiving the book, my go-to recipe has been the Overnight Creamy Oatmeal. It's easy to make in batches and is so tasty. I also love the Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie, Java Cappuccino Smoothie, and Cinnamon French Toast. Next on my list to tackle is the recipe for Snickerdoodle Muffins!
