The Best Protein Powder Popovers
The COVID-19 pandemic is here and a lot of my usual protein sources (eggs, chicken, etc.) are out of stock at my local grocery store, so I have been getting creative with protein powder. One of my favorite creations has been protein powder popovers.
These popovers are dairy-free and delicious. It took me forever to get the ratios right, but when I did they came out light and fluffy. I have them for breakfast with raspberry jam.
“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome unflavored protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard popovers are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein popovers recipe.
-½ cup drink wholesome unflavored protein powder
-4 tbsp coconut oil
-2 cups dairy-free milk
-1 tsp baking powder
-½ tsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place muffin tins in the hot oven for about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, mix the protein powder, coconut oil, milk, eggs and sea salt. Carefully remove the tins from the oven. Dollop 1 tsp coconut oil into each tin and fill it ⅔ with batter. Bake for 15 minutes. Poke holes in the protein powder popovers with a toothpick. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes. Makes 12 servings.
