I got this book from the library & have tried 5 recipes so far. Not one has turned out well. I've had bars that are too dry, too sweet, that didn't hold their shape, etc. As another reviewer pointed out, it's like the recipes weren't tested prior to printing. Yes, I can probably make the recipes more palatable by tinkering w/ proportions, but that defeats the purpose of buying the book. A cookbook that is just a collection of ingredients that requires you to figure out the ratios isn't worth much & will cost you a lot in wasted ingredients & time.
I was excited by this book's potential, but would recommend avoiding it.
One thing I love is that I can change all the recipes based on what I have (i.e. - if I don't have pea protein, I can substitute and still come out with a great treat). My boyfriend and I are personal trainers and we have gotten many other people to purchase this book as well just as a helpful start on other creative protein sources. We have tried many of the recipes and our favorite it the banana bread (she has like 5 banana bread recipes at least). We add cinnamon, exchange banana whey protein with chocolate whey and come out with a delicious, moist bread every time. We have decided that it tastes even better than regular banana bread. Regardless of the recipe that we make - we easily change it around to fit our cravings and enjoy the outcome every time.
Note: I attached a photo of the recipe, before and after photo of our DELICIOUS personalized banana bread!
I highly recommend that people read and seriously take note of the first section of this book where Anna breaks down cooking with all types of protein. She also gives a crash course on food and the body; written easy enough for 8 year old to understand. There are also graphs of all the ingredients and how they can be substituted - rest assured that you will find all the information you need to cook with this book successfully.
If you are looking to cook with soy protein (which is a horrible idea) there are no recipes in there with soy - Anna even explains and SHUTS DOWN people that think otherwise. Soy is not only a nearly-useless protein, it just doesn't do for cooking what all the other, actually beneficial, proteins do. (So stay away soy people and also... stop using soy crap).
