Making protein rolls yourself? Absolutely! With just 6 everyday ingredients, you can effortlessly prepare the most delicious, healthy whole wheat rolls. Often, ready-made low-carb and high-protein rolls from the supermarket lack flavor. So why not make your own rolls and give them an extra boost with protein powder?
Why choose protein powder in this recipe? Firstly, it helps balance the macronutrients. Normally, rolls are mainly made of carbohydrates. By adding our protein powder, you also make them rich in proteins. A protein roll contains 14.4 grams of carbohydrates and 14.6 grams of protein. For comparison, a regular brown roll contains 26.5 grams of carbohydrates and only 5.5 grams of protein. That’s a significant difference! Secondly, it provides extra fluffiness. And who doesn’t want airy rolls?
These rolls are ready in a snap. While you prepare to head out the door, the rolls are already baked and ready!
But beware, you’ll want freshly baked protein rolls from your oven every morning from now on!

A protein-rich piadina is essentially the Italian version of a tortilla or wrap. If you’re looking for a high-protein or low-carb option, a regular flatbread isn’t the ideal choice. Normal tortillas or wraps are mainly made of flour and thus contain a lot of carbohydrates. But if you’re in the mood for a flatbread, you can easily make a low-carb wrap or tortilla yourself!
This recipe for an Italian wrap is made with unflavored protein powder and is surprisingly easy to prepare. By adding natural protein powder without added flavors to your savory dishes, you can quickly put a high-protein meal on the table. In this case, you get a delicious protein-rich piadina! This flatbread can be used as a flatbread, wrap, tortilla, or even as a healthy pizza crust.
The benefits of adding unflavored protein powder to dishes like wraps and piadinas are numerous. Ready-made wraps with fewer carbohydrates and more proteins are often expensive, dry, and don’t taste great. We’re here to show you that it can be different!
