I've used pea protein from time to time. I like it because it blends well with other stuff and doesn't leave a lot of grittiness. It also has fairly simple ingreidents and not a lot of sugar or additives. It's always been easier for me to digest too. And it is inexpensive compared to other vegan protein powders. It doesn't have a lot of taste in itself though.
I used it almost exclusively for smoothies. I did try using it in baking but it would leave an off taste. I would blend it with frozen banana chunks, leafy greens (soft lettuces, spinach, turnip greens all seem to blend more smoothly than kale and other tougher greens), berries or cantaloupe or mango. I love thick creamy smoothies and the protein powder along with the combinations I mentioned did the trick and tasted fairly decent. I would add a little stevia (I grow my own plant in warmer months and throw stevia leaves right from my herb garden into the blender) too. the banana and other fruit also provides more flavor and sweetener.
Another thing you could try. I make chickpea flour omelets sometimes for breakfast. It is very quick and easy to make. I usually add a half cup of chickpea flour to a bowl. You could add a serving of pea protein in there as well. then add a pinch of cumin powder, ground black pepper, or other spices of you likeing. Add a half cup or slightly more cold water to the mix and mix vigorously to make a pancake batter consistency. Heat a nonstick skillet on low medium, and spread you batter on it like a pancake. Let it cook and when it bubbles, add some chopped leafy greens, salsa, bell pepper, celery, or whatever other veggies you prefer. Then fold over your pancake and let it cook a half minute, flip and let that side cook a half minute more, and viola you have a filling chickpea flour omelet! Since chickpea flour and pea protein are fairly close in taste I think the two mixed together would work well. A half cup of chickpea flour alone has 8 grams of ptotein, so add the serving of pea protein, plus a cup of spinach, and you can get a huge amount of protein out of that "omelet". The addition of salsa, especially spicy, really puts it over the top as far as an eggy savory awesome taste for breakfast, that is very low sugar. Dang, I wish I would have had this for breakfast this morning instead of my oatmeal lol.
