Today's recipe is a savory, warm and filling breakfast that will help you knock off your protein content for the day, and keep you full.

The best part is that you can top this with fresh fruit, peanut butter, Nutella, nuts, chocolate chips…whatever your heart desires!

This week’s recipe is geared for the pumpkin enthusiasts and lovers of fall. Dusty has created pumpkin cake bars that are pretty straight forward and easy on the macros.

Protein Oatmeal Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (39 grams) quick oats
  • 1 scoop (32 grams) whey protein powder (vanilla works well)
  • 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) egg whites
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Protein Oatmeal Directions
  1. Measure out oats, whey, and almond milk and combine by stirring in a pot. Cook on the stovetop on medium heat until most of the milk is absorbed and the oats become more “sticky”.
  2. Add in egg whites, a little bit at a time and stir with a whisk until all is well combined and cooked, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Top with any kind of creative additive you can think of!

When you add the egg whites to the oatmeal, it cooks them slowly and gives more volume to the meal itself. Some WAG members have actually added riced cauliflower to this as well for more carbohydrates, volume and fiber.

I hope you enjoy this protein packed meal and give it a try next time you’re attempting to spice up your oatmeal and increase your protein intake!
