I love oatmeal, I love blueberries. this is fast and good for you! eat it as a meal or a snack. You can use any berry you wish.
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 4 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
- 1⁄4 cup blueberries
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar substitute (optional)
- make the oatmeal as you would normaly. (stove top or microwave).
- when oatmeal is done, pour into bowl. mix in protein powder, splenda, and berries.
- serve and enjoy!
I found the amount of protein powder to be overpowering and impacted the taste. I wonder if adding it before cooking would help at all? I didn't add the sugar substitute, but think it should be included. This is a very thick oatmeal, I'd say another 1/4c of water is needed to get the right consistency for me. Great idea, but needs tweaking a bit for my tastes.
You really need to post more recipes that include the whey protein powder. I use this alot as I have elimated meat from my diet 2 years ago. I never thought of adding it to my oatmeal b/f and since I include oatmeal as my morning breakfast after a workout this is perfect. Thanks for the post. Please post more if you have any.
