You know me, always trying to cram extra protein into my diet. I did a new thing the other day and added protein powder to my oatmeal. It turned into the best thing ever.
You know those little packages of oatmeal you can buy (the kind you have to eat 6 of before you feel full). My favourite kind was the peaches and cream flavour. That being so, I decided to make a high-protein peaches and cream oatmeal for my lunch. Hello yummy.
But then, peaches are one of my favourite fruits. They make everything delicious.
I amped up my 1/3 cup of quick oats protein count from 4g to over 27g! Also, my oatmeal tasted amazing. The vanilla protein powder I used made my oats so creamy I used hardly any milk! Serves 1.
Peaches N’ Cream Protein Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 scoop vanilla protein*
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 peach, chopped
- Cinnamon, to taste
- Almond milk
*I used FitMixer vanilla protein
Cook the quick oats, egg whites, and water on medium heat until completely cooked (around 3-5 minutes). You will have to stir constantly to keep the egg whites from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.
Once cooked, add protein and almond milk and heat until desired temperature.
Top with chopped peach, cinnamon and almond milk.
Look at that creaminess! Mmmmm…
This is a great recipe for all those chilly fall mornings coming soon! It’s got your carbs, protein, healthy fat, fibre, and a fruit – the perfect meal!
What is your favourite fruit? Have you tried protein in your oatmeal?
