The Best Protein Powder Oatmeal
Someone recently asked me: can you put protein powder in oatmeal? I just laughed. No matter who you are, there is no better way to start your day than with a bowl of oatmeal. Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth, and are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.
Numerous studies have shown that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits including weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and a reduced risk of heart disease. What is not to love? That said, if oatmeal has one shortcoming, it is that it is not high in protein. This is where protein powder comes in.
Adding protein powder to oatmeal is a perfect way to supercharge your breakfast. Oats and protein powder are a match made in heaven will keep you full (and happy) until lunch. Enjoy!
“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how much chalky oatmeal are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein oatmeal recipe.
-1 cup almond milk
-½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
-½ cup drink wholesome vanilla protein powder
-1 tbsp almond butter (optional)
Place all of the ingredients into a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat while continuously stirring. Stirring continuously will prevent your oatmeal from burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once your oatmeal is boiling, reduce to low heat and continue to stir for 5 minutes, or until oats have thickened to the desired consistency. Garnish with (dried) fruit and enjoy.
