Quick High Protein Oatmeal Recipe

I have been on the hunt for high protein oatmeal. Oatmeal is such a good breakfast on cold winter mornings and there’s room for variety since you can top it with whatever you’d like from fresh fruit to brown sugar and butter ( my personal favourite ) it’s hard to get very bored of it. The problem with high protein oatmeal recipes is that they tend to either require protein powder – which bothers my stomach since it’s hard to digest so much protein at once, not to mention it can make the oatmeal a weird texture – or cooking an egg with it, making the oatmeal rubbery. After eating rubbery oatmeal almost every day last winter ( why Peri? Why? ) I have figured out the trick to quick, high protein oatmeal, a splash of milk! It makes the oatmeal almost creamy and adds a little extra protein.

 

Recipe

Ingredients

Makes 1 serving.

1/2 cup applesauce or 1 very ripe banana

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of quick cook oats

1 egg

A splash of milk so that all the oatmeal is soaked but there’s no extra liquid

Toppings of choice. Chopped dried dates, fresh fruit, brown sugar, etc. I used a bit of maple syrup ( because I’m Canadian ) and topped with some brown sugar and butter.

Applesauce can be made by peeling and cutting a few apples, adding a splash of water, then microwave for 7-10 minutes or until very mushy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directions

In a microwave-safe bowl, mix applesauce and oats together ( or mash banana and add in the oatmeal ), add the egg and mix well making sure the yolk is broken. Add a bit of milk until the texture looks moist but not too wet.

Microwave for 1 min 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Just until it looks a little rubbery, stir once it’s done to break it up. Add toppings of choice and enjoy!
