Hint o’ Mint with Protein Cookies

 More experimenting with my vast quantities of protein powder (which are also delicious as shakes). These cookies have enough mint to taste, but not enough to be off-putting. I'll be trying the recipe with the other flavours I have on hand as well.

1 cup margarine

½ cup icing sugar

¼ cup corn starch

1 cup flour

2/3 cup Revolution Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Protein Dessert powder


Preheat oven to 325°F. Cream icing sugar into margarine. Stir in corn starch. Combine flour and protein powder and stir in. Form cookies into one-inch balls and flatten with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes.


Makes 3-4 dozen.

Mocha Almond Protein Squares

Having ordered a much bigger container of whey protein than I’d realized, I’ve started looking for ways to incorporate it into other things than shakes. This modification of an easy square recipe came out beautifully, and with protein powder substituted for the flour and some of the sugar should have fewer calories (or at least carbs) as well. 

1 cup margarine

1 ¼ cups sugar

2 eggs

1 ½ cups flour

1 ½ cups Revolution Nutrition Mocha Marzipan Whey Dessert

1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt margarine. Stir in sugar and let cool down for a few minutes before adding eggs (you don’t want them cooking). Combine flour, protein powder and baking soda and stir into margarine/sugar/egg mixture. Spoon into a 9 x 13 cake pan. It will be thin, but don’t worry, it rises.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until set. Cut immediately. Once cool, transfer to an air-tight container so the squares don’t get dried out.

Number of servings depends on the size you cut your squares. The recipe is supposed to make 48 but I never get that many.
