Are you looking for how to make Homemade Weight Gainer Protein Powder? Look no further! This cheap weight gainer recipe is easy to make with simple ingredients, packed with great macros, and absolutely delicious!
All you’re going to need to make this homemade weight gainer is either a blender or food processor and a container to store your powder in. If you don’t have a blender or food processor, here’s a link to the food processor I’ve been using for years and recommend.
Start by adding right into whatever you’re using 3/4 cup of rolled oats, 1 1/2 scoops of your choice flavor protein powder, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of a chocolate mix.
Choose whatever type or flavor protein powder you want as long as it compliments the chocolate and peanut butter flavors in the recipe!
Did you know that cocoa powder is a great cheap source of fiber with 2 grams for every 10 calories?
Blend or process everything together until you have your homemade weight gainer protein powder.
With the ingredients listed above I would consider this a single serving. If you want enough to last you the entire week then you’ll have to multiply the recipe by however many servings you want. You can easily do this using the sliding scale below in the recipe card!
Pro tip? Store it in a travel friendly container and take it with you anywhere.
This cheap homemade weight gainer protein powder is low in sugar, high in both fiber and protein, has no artificial or unhealthy fillers, tastes great with water, and comes in at under $1.00 a serving!

Some of these comments in this thread a hilarious… good recipe
Any close substitute for protein powder, chocolate mix and rolled oats or any oats would do? I am Nigeria and these are hard to find here.
Hi! Any oats should do. How about cocoa powder? Not quite sure what to do for a protein powder sub. Hemp powder?
You can actually find everything listed in the recipe above in popular local market in Nigeria.
Would I be able to insert it into capsules?
To consume? You’d need quite a few capsules per serving…
LMAO bro thats like 500 capsules
Hi Derek, I already have the rolled oats, chocolate mix and cocoa powder but I dont know where to get the protein powder and powdered peanut butter, what do I do?
Where are you from? You should be able to find both of those locally (my grocery stores have both nowadays).
I’m from Nigeria I can’t find them too
Sir how to take this recipe
Hi! Are you asking me what to mix the powder with? Milk or water both work great!
Sir, pls with this recipe u have given above, how long will it take me to start seeing the result?
There are too many variables to give you an answer here.
hi Derek, it can intake only powder or mix with water?
Is this for 29 years women….i m skinny ….will this help me for weight gain..
How many scoop for 1 serving?
Once I blend everything into a powder and make enough for a week, how much would one serving be? Thanks for the great recipe!
I know my question would be a kind of alien questions 😀
but do you have any recipe for making protein powder? 😀
Thank you for the recipe. My son is a high school athlete who is trying to put on some clean weight and this should help. He eats fairly well for his three meals a day, but finding a way for him to get in his high calorie snacks, without impacting his meals, has been a challenge.
If I wanted to add carbs and reduce protein, could I just increase the oats and reduce the protein powder by the same amount or could I just add some maltodextrin?
Also, how well does this powder mix with water in a shaker cup?
Hi Jason! Yes, more oats would absolutely be fine. Everything will mix well as long as it’s processed into powder.
Can I use peanut butter instead of peanut powder
Hi Cecilia! You could add in peanut butter at the time of mixing your shake which will also give you some more calories/fat.
Chocolate mix? I guess I need more specifics.
Thank you I will give a try. Looks simple and nice.
Love the recipes, just a couple of questions…why rolled oats? Could I use chia seeds in place of them? Please help with a weight loss shake recipe that is high in protein low cal and carbs that tastes good, do you have a recipe for that? (:
Hey Derek thanks for this nice tip!
I’m gonna try it tomorrow looks realy nice and handy for gainig those extra pounds
How much water do you add? Thank you.
Hey Audrey! To the shake? Per serving around 8 ounces. 🙂
Nice! Now, do you have a weight losing protein powder recipe? 😛
Haha! I’ll see what I can come up with in terms of keeping you full the longest/lower calorie!
