I have something good for you all today: a High Protein Oatmeal Recipe! Remember when I tried “Oatless Oats” awhile ago but wasn’t a big fan of the texture? Well, I decided to try a new version of high protein oatmeal, adding eggs to the mix but leaving some oats in there as well for texture purposes. It came out awesome!
This is a simple recipe and I’m sure there are other variations of high protein oatmeal around on the internet, but I still figured it was worth sharing. I think this is going to become my new staple in our house — it definitely held me over better than regular oatmeal!
If you’re too busy for stove top oats, you can also make this in the microwave! Simply follow my Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal recipe, but before putting it in the microwave, whisk one egg into the oats/milk/banana mixture. That’s it – do everything else the same!
High Protein Oatmeal
This high protein oatmeal recipe incorporates eggs to increase the protein while still keeping the usual oatmeal texture, and ground flaxseed adds some healthy fat to the mix! For a more filling breakfast, enjoy topped with berries, nuts, seeds, additional banana- whatever you like!
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
1) Mix all ingredients together in a pot on the stove; turn to medium high heat.
Just because I was curious how much protein was actually in this recipe, I decided to calculate the nutritional information. Each serving (this recipe makes two servings) has 13 grams of protein – sweet! Without the eggs (e.g., normal oatmeal), the protein would be half the amount. They really up the staying power of this recipe!
I hope you all give this a try! If you have trouble with oatmeal keeping you full for long enough, this recipe might be your answer.
