Easy Protein Packed Oatmeal

This article, entitled Easy Protein Packed Oatmeal, comes from partner site Body OverHall.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why do so many of us skip it? “Not enough time” is the biggest excuse I hear. Well here is an easy oatmeal recipe that will give you energy, is packed with protein, and most importantly, tastes great. Sure, you may need to wake up a few minutes earlier to fix it, but it’s well worth it. My son eats this almost every morning before school and it’s one of his favorites (although he is not a fan of the cottage cheese so we just skip that part). Give it a try and hopefully it will become one of your favorite breakfast options.

  • ½ to ¾ cup plain instant oatmeal

  • ½ to 1 full scoop vanilla or strawberry whey protein powder

  • 1 packet Truvia or Splenda

  • ¼ to ½ cup plain Greek yogurt or low fat cottage cheese (optional)

  • ¾ to 1 cup Hot water (depends on how thick or thin you want your oatmeal)

  • ½ to ¾ cup berries, fresh or frozen (thawed)

  • 1 Tbsp Chia seeds or milled flax seed (optional)

Mix oatmeal, protein powder, and Truvia in a bowl. Slowly add hot water, stirring oatmeal mixture. Let sit for a minute, then add yogurt or cottage cheese, berries and chia seeds or milled flax seeds. Enjoy with a cup of hot green tea if you like, or Eric enjoys his with a glass of milk!

Be Well,
