Power Protein Oatmeal

I remember one of my first blog posts was an oatmeal recipe. I have since improved my recipe and decided to add a new ingredient to it to increase my protein intake for the day which is usually very low as I find it hard to eat foods with lots of protein. ( I’m more of a carbs kind of gal, sadly ).

When making my porridge I usually use Flahvan’s, Progress Oats.

Oats are considered a superfood because:

  • They are low in fat and saturated fat – foods that are low in fat are considered important in diets such as those to treat heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
  • They have a medium glycaemic Index – foods with a low to medium GI and high soluble fibre content (such as oats, beans and lentils) can help reduce blood cholesterol as part of a healthy diet).
  • They are high in soluble fibre.
  • They are low in salt and sugar.
  • They contain a variety of vitamins and minerals.

To increase my protein I will be adding a serving of whey protein powder that you can buy online or in supermarkets and sports shops.

For my topping, I like to add cinnamon, banana, blueberries, honey, almond milk, peanut butter etc. ( not all at once, I do different combinations ). My recipe below is for 1 person so increase if you are making it for more people.

Ingredients:

  • 40g oats
  • serving of protein powder
  • 110ml water
  • 110 milk of choice ( I use almond or European soya )
  • toppings of choice

Method:

  1. Add oats, water and milk of choice to a saucepan over a medium to high heat.
  2. Stir continuously until mixture starts to bubble ( boil ).
  3. Lower heat and continue to stir until you have reached desired thickness and creaminess.
  4. This all takes about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Spoon into bowl and cover in toppings.
  6. Stir in protein powder.
  7. Gobble gobble!

I hope you try this recipe as it is one of the healthiest breakfasts you can nourish your body with!
