Vegetarian Protein Powder Recipes

Vegetarian athletes face a unique challenge: meeting their body’s protein needs on a restricted diet. Of course, there are plenty of protein-rich plants (and we’re going to assume that vegetarians here are comfortable with eggs) but the full-fledged omnivores out there get to enjoy the convenience of protein powders for snacks and quick meals. Fortunately, there are tons of high-quality vegetarian protein powders available – including pea protein. To get you started, here are a few simple recipes.

Basic Protein Pancake

You can add all sorts of seasonings and toppings to these pancakes once you’ve got the protein-rich base down. Because vegetable protein powders absorb liquids, you may need to adjust the measurements to achieve the needed consistency depending on your powder of choice.

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 scoop Naked Pea protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk

Use a coffee grinder or food processor to powder the oats and combine them with the protein powder and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix in the milk and eggs. Lightly grease a skillet or griddle and bring it to medium-high heat. Spoon the mixture onto the hot surface and cook each side for about 3 minutes.

Apple, Banana Protein Muffins

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 cup apple sauce (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 scoop Naked Pea protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Prepare a muffin pan with non-stick spray and divide the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Farenheit for 35 minutes.

Quick Easy Smoothie

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 scoop Naked Pea protein powder
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 pear
  • 1 cup spinach

Combine ingredients in a blender.
