This is a great way breakfast to start your day off with.  It’s quick, filling, and tastes amazing.  In fact, this is what I have for breakfast most mornings myself.

Ingredients:

oatmeal ingred

-1/2 cup of oatmeal

-1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (any flavor will work, I just prefer chocolate. The protein powder I use for this recipe is Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard, Extreme Milk Chocolate)

-unsweetened almond milk (vanilla unsweetened milk is fine too)

-1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter

-1/2 cup of water

Directions

1.  Place 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of water, scoop of chocolate protein powder in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

2.  Place the mixture in the microwave for 2 minutes.  After the 2 minutes are up, the mixture will puff up like a cake.  Now crumble it up with a spoon like below

3.  Pour some unsweetened almond on top, mix in a tablespoon of peanut butter, and then enjoy!

Tips:

-Be VERY careful about the kind of oatmeal you use.  Go for ones that  ONLY  have “oats” as the ingredient.  Some packs of instant oatmeal are loaded with sugar.

-Be VERY careful when buying peanut butter.  Peanuts should be the only ingredient(some may have a mild touch of salt).  A lot of “healthy” peanut butters are basically hydrogenated oil and sugar.

-When buying a chocolate protein powder(or whatever flavor you chose), make sure you read the label.  Some protein powders are GARBAGE!  The one I am using in the above pic is only 120 calories, has 3 total grams of carbs, 2 grams of sugar, and 24 grams on protein per scoop.  ALWAYS opt for low sugar protein powders.
