Morning Protein Oatmeal Recipe


I started eating this breakfast nearly every day over a year ago and have yet to get tired of it. It keeps me full, gets my energy up in the morning, and is a cinch to make!


1/2 cup quick or regular oats
1/8 – 1/4 cup skim milk (or soymilk)
1 scoop protein powder
1 T flax seeds
1/2 cup blueberries or other fruit
Sprinkle of cinnamon


Make the oatmeal according to package instructions. Stir in milk, protein powder, and flax seeds. Top with blueberries and cinnamon as desired.

Tip: Make a few servings extra of oatmeal so the next day you have a really easy breakfast.
