My Go-To Protein Oatmeal

Oatmeal has truly become one of my favorite breakfasts! Oatmeal is high in fiber and complex carbs and loaded with important vitamins & minerals. There are so many ways you can “dress up” your oatmeal and get a well-balanced meal of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats.

For awhile now, this oatmeal recipe has been my absolute favorite. For breakfast, a pre-workout meal or post-workout meal, it’s never a bad time to dive into this delicious bowl!

Ingredients for my go-to Protein Oatmeal:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP Chia Seeds
  • 3 TBSP Liquid Egg Whites
  • Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Scoop PEScience Snickerdoodle Protein Powder (Optional but SO good)
  • Desired Toppings

Steps:

  1. Add 1/2 cup oats to a bowl and fill with water until oats are lightly covered all the way. Cook for 1:50.
  2. Add 3 TBSP of liquid egg whites and mix – (May need to add a little more water at this point) – then cook again for 1-2 minutes. KEY: Make sure to watch oatmeal in microwave at this point because overflowing may occur #VOLUME!
  3. Add in 1 TBSP of Chia Seeds and Protein Powder and mix well!
  4. Next comes the best part: TOPPINGS! Add in sliced banana, strawberries & blueberries!
  5. Next step is adding in some healthy fats: almond slices & all-natural peanut butter
  6. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon!
  7. If you like your oatmeal not as thick, top with a little almond milk!
  8. DIG IN!

There you have the most perfect protein oatmeal which will keep you full for hours! Truly could eat this every single day- Yes, it’s that good!

(This oatmeal recipe can me made without protein powder & will still get a good amount of protein from just the liquid egg whites)
