    I was baking some Ghiradelli brownies with my GF over the weekend cuz we bought the monster box from Costco, and I was eyeballing my 5lb tub of ON Double Chocolate Whey...

    Anybody ever mix it in? I'm afraid of it being the wrong consistency or something (too thick, etc)... :dunno:

    try it out, the most you'll lose is a few bucks. I'm sure you'd have to add a little water/oil to compensate

    yeah... recipe doesn't use much oil in the first place, asks for 1/3 cup (less than 3oz, while a single serving of whey asks for twice that much water, and comes out pretty thick. I'd like to get ~10 scoops, so for a 9-brownie 8x8 pan (in thirds), that's ~25-30g protein per serving... but that's a shitload of extra powder, definitely would effect the way it cooks.

    How does rehydrated whey protein bake, anyways? Like cheese or something? :dunno:

    who knows? :dunno: I bet it could be very yummy, and I'm always down for a brownie, good way to get some protien in.

    wait wat

    I'm saying, if I was shooting for a shake's worth (~25g or so) in each brownie I ate (usually cut a 8x8 pan into 9 squares, thirds each way)... I'd need about 10 scoops, and that's a SHITLOAD of powder

    As much fun as edibles are, I'd rather not find myself with my arms over my head wondering why I'm holding a couple hundred pounds. :420:

    I know... that's definitely too much. Gonna have to settle for maybe 15g protien each I think.

    well yeah, obviously... that's why I mentioned it in the part of the quote you edited out. :wtcslap:

    2 scoops would only be like 4 or 5g protein for a ~300 cal square. That means you'd have to eat ~1200 cal just to get 20g protein? I'll pass... not really into bulking QUITE that dirty.

    I've been mixing chocolate whey with pancake batter lately. Fucking delicious! Good for that 2000 cal PWO meal:x:

    NO, he wanted a protein enriched brownie.

    so there is no harm in trying to make some. just get too it!

    You gotta feel it working immediately. If you don't feel it, add at least one more double cheeseburger.

    for a really healthy and damn good tasting brownie, try this if you have a trader joes near you...

    they have fat free brownie mix that you mix with plain yogurt...they also have this greek style fat free yogurt that has 20g protein per serving(and 4 g carbs i believe)...make the brownies with that stuff and you have a mouth watering high protein and carb snack(the brownie mix does have sugar in it but its a hell of a post workout meal, wash it down with another protein shake and you're golden)

    Try mixing some protein with the liquid before you mix it with the flour/cocoa/etc.

    2.5 servings in what is i believe a 16 oz tub. its not the regular macronutrient breakdown of nonfat yogurt you find at a typical grocery store trust me. the whole thing has 50 g protein and 10 carbs, zero fat and tastes good as hell(at least to me, its sour compared to regular yogurt but i likes it)

    Got the trader joes yogurt and brownie mix last night, it fricken rocked! It wasn't to sweet felt somewhat healthy for brownies. Btw that yogurt is the bomb 20g of protein per 100 calories ;) nice break from whey.
