This is my go-to post workout proatmeal recipe! It’s a super easy and filling breakfast that ensures you’re getting the protein you need after a hard workout.
1/2 cup of rolled (or steel cut) oats
I tbsp of Women’s Best vanilla whey protein powder
1/3 cup almond milk (or water)
1/4 cup Blueberries
1 tbsp all natural peanut butter (I use Teddy’s brand)
Place oats, protein powder, peanut butter and almond milk in a bowl, stirring quickly before placing the bowl in the microwave. I cook them for 1 minutes, stir, then cook for an additional minute to make sure all of the ingredients are combined. The oats should be fluffy but if you prefer you can add more almond milk!
For the toppings, I place the blueberries in a microwave safe bowl with a little bit of water and heat them for 30 seconds until they start to cook. Make sure you keep an eye on them so that they don’t burn.
Pour the blueberries over the oatmeal along with the additional toppings (feel free to add or substitute). Walnuts add additional protein while blueberries are a great source of antioxidants!
To make this recipe with steel cut oats, combine the same ingredients in a small pot and bring the mixture to a bowl before reducing the heat to low and bringing it to a simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When I am traveling I will put the oats and protein powder along with some walnuts or almonds in a plastic bag so that I can make them for myself while away. I find that they are just as good when using water instead of almond milk.
And that’s it! Super simple, and a great way to sneak your protein into your food.
