Want more protein in your daily diet without the meat?
These black burgers are for you!
Now normal black bean burgers, like these ones I've posted about before, do have protein AND are a great substitute for a meatless meal; However, if you're like me and weight lift, you often need more than just 4-5grams; you need something in the teens and beyond.
These Burgers have 14g of protein thanks to protein powder.
These burgers were truly an experiment, but I'm glad I gave it try, because they are delicious!
I usually have three types of protein powder on hand: Whey French Vanilla Creme, Whey Mocha Cappuccino, and Chocolate Supreme Casein. I usually drink the Mocha Cappuccino powder with some almond milk, and I usually make some kind or dessert with the casein, but I generally reserve The French Vanilla Creme Whey just for baking purposes. It bakes really well and, of course, adds more protein! But as you can imagine, it is on the sweet side, but it was my best option out of three so threw it in.
I admit, I was worried my burgers would come out sweet, but I added in a little sirracha and that sweetness from the powder was masked up real quick.
Bonus: these burgers are so easy to make.
