Added Too Much Water to The Mix? Three Easy Tricks To Try.

If you find yourself with a watery protein cookie mix, don't worry—we've got three simple tricks to save your batch before you throw in the towel.

1. Add Some Flour or Cornstarch

To thicken the mix, consider adding a tablespoon of flour or cornstarch. For flour, you can use regular white flour or oat flour. Slowly incorporate the flour or cornstarch into the mix while stirring until you achieve the desired dough consistency for making cookies.

2. Double the Ingredients

If you have another Variant Nutrition protein cookie mix, especially of the same flavor, doubling up can help absorb excess moisture. Mixing in another batch allows you to save your mix and bake a larger quantity of cookies. It's a win-win!

3. Get Creative

Our protein cookie mix is incredibly versatile, so don't limit yourself to just cookies! Transform your watery mix into something new: pour it into a non-stick muffin tin for protein-packed muffins (add some baking powder), spread it in a cake pan for a protein-rich cake, microwave some of it, or whip up pancakes for a hearty breakfast.

Example: Midnight Snack Brownies

Recently, we found ourselves with a watery Midnight Snack mix. Instead of tossing it, we turned it into delicious brownies! Adjusting the water to achieve a cake batter consistency, we added oat flour, spread it in a greased pan, and baked it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes. The result? Moist, protein-packed brownies ready to enjoy in minutes.
