You can do high protein oatmeal recipe fresh or jar it up as an overnight oatmeal to wake up to. I mix all of the ingredients except the oats in a blender in bulk to then add oats to as overnight oatmeal for the week. I often pack this in a jar for work or as overnight oats for breakfast on a wedding day.
An easy high protein oatmeal recipe to make in bulk
Having a high protein quick and easy breakfast is super important if you’re trying to build muscle or sustain energy throughout the day. Protein is the bodies fuel—particularly for muscle growth. Eating high amounts of protein supports your body to maintain and build muscle mass when you’re doing strength training. Protein is the building block for the muscles in your body.
Oatmeal is one of my favorite ways to sneak in different ingredients. It’s easy to sneak in protein powder, peanut butter, goji berries, and other sources of protein. I’m a big fan of making a few in bulk at the same time on Sundays to have for the rest of the week. Having easy high protein oatmeal recipes handy makes it easy to support my body every day of the week.
Ingredients for this high protein oatmeal recipe
- 1/2 C quick oats (3g protein)
- 1/2 C almond milk (~4g protein)
- 1/2 C water
- 1/2 banana
- 2 Tbs peanut butter (8g protein)
- 1 scoop or protein shake (your choice!)
- 2 Tbs nutritional yeast (8 g protein)
- a sprinkle of maple sugar (or other sweetener, up to you)
- You can add other things like hemp seeds, bee pollen, or chia seeds, blueberries, strawberries, or coconut flakes
Mix your dry ingredients first. Add in the wet ones and mix. If you’re making this fresh heat the almond milk and water to boiling, and add last to the mixture. I like to put the dry ingredients in a jar and shake until well mixed before adding the wet ones for an overnight oatmeal recipe.
