Protein Powder Oatmeal
Add protein powder to your morning oats for a protein-packed breakfast that will keep you full all morning.
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 banana sliced (optional)*
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla optional
- 1 scoop protein powder
- Your favorite toppings
Add oats, banana slices and sea salt to a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Add cinnamon and vanilla, if using. Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick and fluffy.
Remove oats from the heat and stir in protein powder. If the consistency of the oats gets too thick, add in a little more water or milk. Transfer oats to a bowl and top with your favorite oatmeal toppings. I used chocolate chips, peanut butter and bananas.
