Presto Protein! Giving Cookies a Boost
From breads and muffins to cookies and cakes, baked treats are typically missing the protein your body craves—and your muscles require. Adding One Bake® to the batter quickly bumps up the protein content, so you’ll perform better, while still eating the oven-baked foods you love. Using it is easy: all you’ll need to do is swap out some of the flour in your favorite recipes—and replace it with One Bake®.
What Does Heat Resistant Mean—And Why Does It Matter?
As handy as protein supplements are, they can really start to break down when heated over 71°C. One Bake® is whey protein specially formulated to withstand high temperatures—and still deliver the protein you want for your body.
Here’s how it works: When the shape and structure of a protein molecule start to change, it’s called denaturing. This process takes place when you grill beef, sauté chicken, or scramble eggs. Research has shown that prolonged, long-lasting heat damages “amino acid bioavailability,” which means your body can have a harder time digesting and using the protein, after heating.
Most homemade baked goods, from banana bread to granola bars, quiche to whole wheat dinner rolls, are baked within a range of 165°C to 190°C degrees. That means you can confidently substitute a portion of the recipe’s flour with One Bake®—and reap the benefits of added protein, without sacrificing taste or texture.
How Do You Use It?
When it comes to baking, healthy swaps are everywhere—from switching applesauce or avocado puree for butter, to stirring in Greek yogurt instead of oil. But to really give your breakfast muffin an edge, it’ll be a challenge to find a more effective ingredient than One Bake®.
You can use One Bake® for any baked good recipe. You’ll want to play around with the ratios to see what works best for your taste buds. A good rule of thumb is to replace one-third of the flour mixture (whether wheat, almond, coconut or any combination of flours) in your favorite recipes with One Bake® to raise the protein level. You can even use it in a mug cake—just add 2 tablespoons of One Bake® to the mug along with the rest of your ingredients.
One Bake® also pairs wonderfully with Fitnessguru Organic Coconut Oil, Fitnessguru Stevia Drops, Fitnessguru Peanut Butter, and Fitnessguru Hazelnut Spread.
Breakfast Is Just the Beginning
One Bake® is especially effective first thing in the morning, after your body has been fasting overnight and when it’s in need of a quick boost in amino acid levels. It’s easy to add it to breakfast breads, such as zucchini, date-walnut, or banana bread; in the fall, try mixing it into pumpkin bread.
For a midday meal, you can make a quiche or other savory pie crust, as well as sandwich bread, with One Bake®. Snacks such as oatmeal raisin cookies, apple cinnamon muffins and even brownies work well with One Bake®. And if you’re looking for a protein-rich dinner after a hard workout, consider rolls baked with One Bake®, or fish or chicken dusted with One Bake® and seasonings before cooking.
Heat resistant whey protein concentrate.
One Bake® can be used as a food supplement, a baking ingredient or a neutral whey protein powder. For maximum results take three servings daily, preferably during breakfast, in between meals, and after exercise.
SHAKER: The best to keep your protein at hand at all times. Add one portion to 200-300 ml water, milk or soy with flavourings such as cocoa, vanilla, Stevia, berries (fresh or frozen), fruits, peanut butter and / or coconut oil.
If you do not have a shaker, you can design your own by choosing from over 1,000 different combinations of colours and sizes. Click here!
BAKING: Replace ⅓ of the flour mixture in your favourite recipes to raise the protein level. One Bake® is heat resistant and can withstand temperatures of up to 200˚ C.
USE: Consume 2-3 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day by combining high-protein foods with supplements.
TIP: Combine slow-release protein like One Casein® with faster-acting protein such as One Whey® Isolate at different times for maximum effect. Use One Bake® at breakfast after an overnight fast for a quick boost in amino acid levels. Take One Casein® before going to bed and in between meals when slow protein absorption is preferable.
