Are you looking for ways to add protein to your diet? Estimates show that about 12% of the world’s population has a protein deficiency, according to The National Institutes of Health. In recent decades, protein powder has become a popular way to supplement the key macronutrient when you’re at work, school, or gym. There are several tasty options to enjoy the dietary supplement besides mixing with water.

 

Oatmeal

Some of the least processed options include oat groats and (steel-cut) rolled oats. One serving of oatmeal provides about 12 grams protein, several vitamins and minerals, and 2 g fibre. You can also add lots of other healthy ingredients like:

 

  • Apples

  • Bananas

  • Raisins

  • Flax/Chia Seeds

  • Cinnamon

A powdery protein supplement can add some extra protein. It blends in well with the whole grains during the cooking process so it won’t have a grainy texture. Some powders have such a mild flavour you won’t notice the added protein.

 

Many health experts recommend that at least half your daily grains include whole grains. Oatmeal is a classic breakfast food, although you can also enjoy it as a snack during the morning, afternoon, or evening.

 

Pancakes

 

A serving of whole-grain pancakes provides about 5 g protein, according to Spark Recipes. You can add extra protein with powder and seed forms.

 

Whole-grain pancakes provide other health benefits over refined flour pancakes. They include complex carbs, lower glycemic index (GI), and more fibre. You can also get other nutrients by adding items like:

 

  • Eggs

  • Milk

  • Fruit

  • Chocolate Chips (unsweetened)

  • Flax/Chia Seeds    

 

If you are suffering from health problems like pre-diabetes or diabetes whole grains are a better option since they don’t cause blood sugar spikes like white flour.  

 

Protein Cookies

Many culinary historians believe the history of cookies dates back to their use as “test cakes” that included a little cake batter that bakers used to test oven temperatures, according to What’s Cooking America.

 

Traditional cookies are already high-protein with ingredients like wheat flour, eggs, and butter. You can boost the protein content even more with a powdered form. It’s recommended that you add the ingredient to recipes that include it, which can include options like chocolate chip cookies.

 

Dessert Waffles

In recent years this version of the traditional breakfast food has been trending. You can add lots of healthy ingredients, including fresh fruit, (real) whipped cream, and cinnamon.

 

You can also add some powdery protein to your recipes, including flavours like pea or vanilla. They provide a mild flavour and extra nutrition to your favourite dessert, waffles.

 

If you have health conditions like wheat allergy or celiac disease, you can even make gluten-free waffles. This option is perfect for people who can’t consume grains like wheat, barley, or rye. In some situations, people can experience unwanted symptoms after consuming wheat flour in homemade waffles, for example.

 

Coffee

The average Australian consumed 91 kilograms of coffee in 2019, according to Statista. It makes a good substitute for non-dairy creamer, then consider vanilla-flavoured powdered protein.

 

If you skip breakfast for purposes like intermittent fasting (IF), this is a great option. Studies show that a high-protein breakfast can help to reduce caloric intake throughout the day.

 

If you’re looking for alternatives to protein shakes and smoothies, try adding protein powder to your high-protein pancakes, peanut butter cookies, or cup of coffee. You can even find vegan variants with plant-based powdered protein.
