I don't think so. What about whole wheat flour? It really is very versatile.

I don't think so. I've found it gets really clumpy and gross when heated.

I've used it to substitute for cocoa powder, but flour has yeast that protein powder doesn't. I'm afraid if you sub it for flour you will end up with a very yucky mess.

I've heard of a quinoa flour that might make a suitable substitute, but I have no idea where to find it. If you find it, let me know.

I have used it in baking with excellent results. I made banana bran muffins and swapped out half of the flour for unflavered protein powder with no problems at all.

I don't think it would work so great in sauces or gravy type things. Probably be very lumpy.

You can do some creative stuff with it, but I wouldn't call it a replacement for flour

I make some excellent banana pancakes with protein powder. I was thinking of reducing the water and trying to make a chocolate syrup with it to go on the pancakes, but I haven't tried it yet. I also made a chocolate cheesecake with it.

Protein powder and oats...you can make up for it...Even got a recipe for high fiber protein packed muffins for you:

1 1/4 cups protein powder
1 1/4 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup splenda
2 tbsp olive oil
2 egg whites
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1/4 cup walnuts or almonds

See no flour, delicious and good for you. My Aunt is a fitness instructor and she swears off these. Every morning with a cup of coffee...

Google Jamie Easton for more recipes like this, can have pancakes and all kinds of other things with no flour.

wheat flour; you wanna stay away from whites (flour, rice, etc)
February 28, 2012 8:16 AM
I saw some muffin recipes, that called for you to take old fashioned oats and grind them up for the flour.

Use OAT bran. I use it to make my own 'bread substitute. It is very healthy and it fills you up. It performs like flour in a recipe.
it is 340 cals per 100grams, so it's not the lowest calorie food out there, but it's SO good for you and fills you up. It gives you that carbed feeling without the badness. I am not on the dukan diet, but I make the dukan oat bran muffins, and i've made them so many times now that i've begun to be creative and add blueberries and so on.

When I add it to recipes I do decrease my flour, but not at a 1 for 1 ratio. However, it does tend to make my baking more dense and gluey. For example I used it in blueberry muffins and they were denser than normal and had a strange . . . thickness. they also never fully set around the blueberries.

I use it in baking all the time as well, but whey protein is made of whey (milk). Using milk instead of flour doesn't seem to make sense to me.

Perhaps rice protein can be used as flour?

That's a good point, I use gluten free vegan rice protein so it may react differently than whey.
