Check out my favorite recipes using my new plant-based protein powder, Plant JYM


While my protein powders have always been designed for drinking, recipes that use them have become popular as a way to introduce variety to your diet while also getting high-quality protein from your meals. With the release of Plant JYM, it didn't take long before the call for recipes followed. Below are 6 of my favorites, and they just might become your new favorites too.

Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Brownies

Ingredients

    • 2 scoops (76g) Chocolate Hazelnut Plant JYM
    • 3/4 cup (90g) all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup (50g) unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp baking soda
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 cup (240g) unsweetened applesauce
    • 1 cup sugar-free maple syrup**
    • 1/4 cup dairy-free milk
    • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds + 2 1/2 tbsp water)*
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the chocolate ganache

    • 1/4 (60g) dairy-free chocolate chips
    • 2 tbsp dairy-free milk

Notes:

*A regular egg can be substituted for chia egg if you aren't a strict vegan.

**Can use a different liquid sweetener like agave, honey, or regular maple syrup.

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350° F.

Add flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Mix.

Add applesauce, sugar-free maple syrup, milk, chia egg, and vanilla extract. Gently stir together until a smooth brownie batter forms.

Spry a 9 x 9 non-stick baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment. Pour batter into the pan. Bake at 350° F for 25 or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Depending on the oven, it may need to bake slightly longer.

Let brownies cool. Once cooled, melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe container. Add dairy-free milk and stir until a smooth ganache forms. Top brownies with ganache and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to let ganache set.

Cut into 12 brownies, and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Protein Cookie

Ingredients

    • 2 scoops (78g) Oatmeal Cookie Plant JYM
    • 1 cup (250g) creamy peanut butter
    • 1/4 cup (50g) Swerve sweetener*
    • 1 cup (240g) unsweetened applesauce
    • 1 chia egg**
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt

Notes:

*Swerve is a sugar-free granular sweetener that measures 1:1 with sugar and bakes like sugar. You can substitute for another sweetener that measures 1:1 with sugar.

**To keep these completely vegan, use a chia egg. If you're not a strict vegan, you can use a regular egg. Make chia egg by mixing 1 tbsp chia seeds with 2 1/2 tbsp water and let sit for 5 minutes to thicken. It should be gel-like and thick.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Gently stir together until a smooth, thick cookie dough is formed.

Line a baking sheet with parchment. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop 12 cookies onto the pan. Press down and flatten to about ½ inch thick with a fork and make cross-hash marks.

Bake at 350F for 8 minutes to keep cookies more doughy, or 10-12 minutes for a more crisp cookie. I preferred them at 8 minutes and a little bit more of a cookie dough texture.

This recipe yields 12 cookies.

    • 2 whole eggs
    • 2 egg white
    • 1 banana (ripe is better)
    • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

Iced Oatmeal Cinnamon Cookies

Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick spray.

Combine dry ingredients and then add in wet ingredients. Stir into a batter.

Form batter into a large cookie shape and bake for 12–14 minutes.

Note: Batter does seem to spread out a bit more than animal-based proteins, so beware of that.

Optional toppings: Almond butter, peanut butter, PB2, and I've heard Cocoa Bar in a Jar Iced Oatmeal Cookie spread is a perfect combination.
