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.
