    So I bought a whole bunch of banana creme flavor protein power that was on sale. It tastes horrible, it's so sweet it makes me want to vomit.

    Anybody have experience with baking with protein powder?

    I make really good banana walnut bread. Would it make a difference if I eat the bread instead of drinking the shake after a workout?

    Chains of amino acid molecules make up proteins, with each type of protein having its own unique sequence of amino acid. As I understand, heat may not affect the amino acid structure of the protein or its nutrients, but it might affect the ability of the protein to be digested.

    What is the protein powder made of?

    Soy, whey, egg?

    That will also make a difference.

    Lol now THIS is entertaining!

    I wouldn't do it... you might inadvertently ruin the other ingredients in the batch ;)

    Yes you can.
    In fact, I believe ON sells a flavorless whey protein that is used exclusively for cooking/baking with.
