Protein Oatmeal with Almonds and Nectarines

On a very rare occasion, I wake up and don’t feel like making eggs or another protein source for breakfast. More often, and for more people, there just simply is not time to make a balanced meal while throwing everything together and rushing out the door. Whichever group you fall into, egg haters or morning rushers, breakfast can certainly be a confusing meal. You know that you are supposed to get at least 20 grams of protein to start your day, but nothing with protein sounds good, or it all takes too long to make. That is where this simple blend of protein powder, oatmeal, and fruit and nuts comes into play. Protein Oatmeal, or “proats” are easy to make, easily transported, and infinitely customizable. Try chocolate oatmeal with banana and peanut butter for a rich taste reminiscent of a Reese’s cup, or follow this recipe for a delicious summer treat.

Ingredients:

  • ½ Cup Old Fashioned Rolled oats, or ¼ Cup steel cut oats
  • 1 Scoop SFH Vanilla Protein Powder (any other grass fed whey protein works, as does a vegan protein)
  • 1 Medium Nectarine or Peach, chopped into bite size pieces and divided
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk (or other milk of your choosing)
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup Almonds, chopped
  • 1 Dash Salt (optional)

Steps:

  • Combine the oatmeal with the cashew milk and half of the peach or nectarine, as well as the cinnamon and salt in a microwave safe dish if using old fashioned oats, or in a small pan if using steel cut oats. Cook oatmeal according to package directions.
  • Allow the oatmeal to cool for at least 2 minutes, and then stir in the protein powder. If you don’t let it cool, the protein oatmeal will take on a strange, somewhat bitter flavor, so don’t skip this step. You may need to add a little more milk to the mixture to help the protein mix in completely, as well.
  • Top the protein oatmeal with the almonds, another dash of cinnamon, and the rest of the fruit. Dig in!
