I’ve been telling a few of you about this 2 recipes so I just decided to place it here at the blog for anyone to try it 🙂
I tried both. The muffins were perfect, even tho I’ve never baked a muffin before! It’s probably “foolproof”. The cookies, on the other hand, not so much lol the taste was fine, it was the texture that I didn’t get right. From what I talked with more experienced bakers than myself, it seems like I didn’t bake them long enough.
So, good luck and let me know how does it work for you.
- 4 1/2 c. Flour
- 4 c. Bran
- 3 c. Oats
- 1 c. White Sugar or Splenda
- 3 tbsp. Baking Powder
Take only 2 Cups of the Dry Mix and add 12 level TBS. of Formula 1 Protein Meal Replacement (whatever flavor you prefer)
Add wet ingredients to these 2 cups of dry mix, mixed with Formula 1
- 1 c. Skim Milk
- 1 Egg
- 1/3 c. Oil
- 1/2 c. Fancy Molasses or Splenda (this is great for diabetics)
- 1/2 c. Raisins, Nuts, Cranberries or Blueberries
Stir until blended. Makes 6 large muffins. 1 muffin = 1 meal
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups Herbalife Personalized Protein Powder (read notes at the end)
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 2 tbs ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups low-fat small curd cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl and blend with a fork.
3. In a separate bowl, combine next 5 ingredients and whisk together with a fork, or use an electric mixer or food processor.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix with a fork. Mix in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.
5. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an oiled or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes until the cookies are slightly brown on top.
Nutrient per servings (2 cookies):

Be aware that nutritional information won’t be accurate as I don’t know what protein powder they used in their recipe.
Trying to make a conversion, they say 16 tbs = 1 cup, the recipe asks for 2 cups of protein powder. 1 tbs of protein powder = 5 gr of protein, you would be using 36 tbs (pretty much 1/2 of your container) that would give you 160 gr of protein! Divide that by 38 cookies, gives you about 4 gr protein/cookie. The serving are 2 cookies so you would have almost 10gr of protein per serving. There you go 😉
