Two Surprisingly Easy and Delicious Protein Powder Recipes

Sal Martella, Fitness and Health Care Professional and Founder of the Plant-Based Protein Brand EVR-Fit Edge, Shares His Favorite Healthy and Nutritious Snack Ideas.


March is National Nutrition Month, making it the perfect time to emphasize the importance of a balanced diet and exercise to enjoy a full and active lifestyle. However, as busy as the modern lifestyle is, it can be challenging to keep up with daily tasks and stick to a healthy meal plan. Sal Martella, lifetime fitness and health care professional and founder of EVR-Fit Edge protein powder brand, shares some of his favorite protein powder-based recipes that help him balance between business, private life, and daily fitness routine.

Vegan Overnight Oats

This recipe can become a lifesaver for those struggling to create a quick and nutritious breakfast. Using only basic ingredients and a short preparation time makes it perfect for meal prep and can help you avoid stress in your morning. 

“For vegan overnight oats, you will only need typical kitchen staples: oats, dairy-free milk, chia seeds for additional fiber and omega-3, and plant-based protein powder – such as EVR-Fit Edge Chocolate-flavored Clean Protein Powder. For more flavor, try adding a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg, and vegan maple syrup can make your overnight oats a bit sweeter – follow your taste! Mix and stir the ingredients in a bowl and transfer to glass jars with lids. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. It’s recommended to prep this meal in the evening so your healthy and nutritious breakfast is ready to be served the next morning,” – shares Martella.

Feel-Good Protein Balls

Here’s another quick recipe for those who are always on the go and need healthy snacks, which can also be used pre-workout. You only need six simple ingredients to make these:

  • 2 cups of oat flour
  • ⅓ cup protein powder, the most suitable flavor for this recipe is chocolate
  • ½ cup nut butter
  • ½ cup milk of your choice
  • maple syrup
  • pure vanilla extract

To prepare the protein balls, mix oat flour and protein powder together in a large bowl. Add and stir in the remaining ingredients until the texture resembles cookie dough – thick but not too sticky. Using a tablespoon or a scoop, grab the dough and roll it into balls, setting the balls on a plate or baking sheet.

“This is a great feel-good snack for those who meal prep as it’s both refrigerator and freezer-friendly – in fact, it can be stored up to three months in the freezer. When preparing these, I recommend planning ahead and separating the protein balls in smaller batches in small bags, so that you can consume them at your own pace,” – adds Martella. “For those who like a bit of sweetness, it’s also a great idea to add chocolate chips to the dough during preparation – the result will be delicious.”
