    Oatmeal--ideas?


    Hello all,

    Obviously Oatmeal (100% wholegrain oats) is a healthy option for breakfast, yet it lacks protein.

    Other than adding protein powder, how do you guys eat oatmeal, or what do you suggest I could do to mine?

    Thanks

    Unsweetened cocoa powder only has 10 cals a serving, no sugar, and is a VERY potent antioxidant. Almond milk (unsweetened) only has 35-40 cals a serving.

    As for ideas, check out this website http://www.katheats.com/favorite-foods/overnightoats

    quinoa is a good substitue if you get tired of oatmeal one cup of cooked quinoa has 8g of protein and 4g of fat and 200 calories and picks up flavors very well

    Well I make my own protein bars. With oatmeal, protein & all kinds of other good for you "stuff".
    These are not some dried out nasty tasking protein bars, these are delicious.

    Now all the ingredients are not cheep, but finished product is a lot cheaper than it you bought comparable protein bars pre-made.
    This recipe will make about 30 bags, with about (550 Calories , 26 grams of Protein & 9 grams of Fiber) per bag.

    Link to “Power Bars” recipe ---:> One Power Bar : Total Calories 94.2 Protein 4.3 Fiber 1.5

    Ingredients:

    10 Scoops vanilla protein powder
    10 Cups Oats
    1 Pound Walnuts Raw
    1 Pound Almonds Raw
    1 Pound Sunflower Seeds
    1 Pound Peanuts
    6 Bananas Bananas (Ripened)
    1 Pound Raisins
    2 Cups Wheat germ
    1 Stick Butter
    7 Eggs Eggs
    1/2 Cups Molasses
    50 Milligrams Stevia (About 25 scoops)
    2 tsp Baking Power
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    2 tbsp Cinnamon
    1 tbsp Vanilla

    If protein powder isn't the protein source I use eggs + stevia. You can either scramble the eggs and chop them up with the spatula so they are really small, or you can cook them sunny side up and let the runny yolk help mix the oatmeal into a slop of sorts. Might not sound good, but oats + eggs + stevia = delicious.
