If you’re like me mornings are crazy busy and I always seem to be in some sort of rush! Or if I do have time I am headed into a busy morning where I won’t have the opportunity to eat or snack until lunch. Enter my secret weapon! These Protein Packed Oats will seriously keep you full for HOURS! I have a couple different flavors combos that I have whipped up that I rely on. But today I’m sharing my Chocolate Raspberry version! It is SOOO good and like I said will keep you FULL!
See how pretty!
Chocolate Raspberry Protein Packed Oatmeal
1/2 C Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 C Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 C Water
1/2 Scoop Chocolate whey protein Powder
1 Cup Fresh or Fresh Frozen Raspberries
2 pkts Stevia – or to taste
Top with a small handful of Dark Chocolate Chips (optional)
Stir Oats and Liquids until they come to a full boil. Reduce heat to a slow simmer. Let simmer for 10-12 minutes stirring occasionally. When you have about six minutes left whisk in protein powder. By whisking you’ll avoid nasty protein clumps. (Trust me you don’t want them!) Once the Protein has been whisked in add your raspberries. Remove from heat and let stand for a couple minutes. Then top with dark chocolate chips and ENJOY!!!
After adding the Liquids you’re gonna think I’m crazy!
It will seem like WAY too much! But trust it will all work out!
Whisk in your Protein Powder during the last 6 minutes of Cooking — this will minimize the protein powder breakdown.
Ahh yeah the best part is enjoying your yummy oats! Between the raspberries, oatmeal, and protein powder this little gem is engineered to provide energy and lasting fullness! Enjoy!!!
