Found this interesting recipe on the internet and switched it up a bit...

HOMEMADE PROTEIN POWDER

Protein powder can be added to a variety of dishes, such as oatmeal and casseroles, or used as the key ingredient in a protein shake to boost your protein intake. Commercial protein powder can be costly and may contain ingredients you are not fond of. By making your protein powder at home, you can make a small portion of powder at a time and control the overall quality of the protein powder. Only a few minutes of time is required to make protein powder.

P.S. - I used all raw ingredients in my version.

Step 1

Put 1 tbsp. each of dried soybeans, whole oat groats, brown rice and black beans to a clean coffee grinder. Use only 1/2 tbsp. of each of these ingredients if you have a small coffee grinder. Overfilling the coffee grinder can cause damage. The soybeans and black beans are rich in protein but have a pungent flavor. The brown rice and oats have lesser amounts of protein but will mask the flavor of the soybeans and black beans in the powder, according to "Techniques of Healthy Cooking."

Step 2

Grind the ingredients in the coffee grinder until they reach an ultra-fine consistency, looking and feeling similar to flour. This may take up to five minutes, depending upon the coffee grinder.
Step 3

Pour the protein powder into an airtight container.
Step 4

Stir 1/2 tsp. of stevia into the protein powder if you made a whole batch that you wish to sweeten. Use only 1/4 tsp. of sugar if you made a half-batch.
Step 5

Place the lid on the airtight container and store the protein powder in a cool, dry place until you are ready to use it.

Add Ins:
I also added 1/2 of a vanilla bean and 2 tsps. each of maca powder and spirulina. 

You can add chorela, matcha, wheat grass powder, raw cacao powder, whatever your tastes take you.

I believe the protein is still absorbed from the powders. 
And, yes, sprouting and dehydrating would definitely be more alive and energetic.  But, I don't own a dehydrator. :-(

I know it would be more time consuming, but I would suggest sprouting/soaking the beans and then dehydrating them before pulverizing in the coffee grinder.  There would be much more bio-availability then.

I have been avoiding soy so will throw together the rest without the soybean. Thanks for the idea! :)
