If you are a lover of all things chocolately and peanut butter, this will be your new go-to breakfast from now on. It takes all of three minutes to prepare and is going to supply you with a balanced mix of healthy fats, protein, along with complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber.
So many people know that oatmeal is a great way to start their day but then make the mistake of choosing store-bought flavored varieties such as peaches and cream or apple cinnamon. While these will still offer fiber and some complex carbohydrates from the oatmeal, they’re also loaded with sugar and very low in protein.
Instead, you want to prepare your own oatmeal dish that contains a healthy mix of protein and fats while still staying low in sugar. This is what will keep you satisfied all morning long and ensure that you are not going to suffer from an energy crash during your mid-morning meeting.
½ cup raw oats
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
sprinkling of peanuts
Cook the oatmeal according to the package directions and then once finished, stir on the chocolate whey protein powder. Note that in some cases you may need to add a little more water as the protein powder will thicken the oatmeal and in other cases you’ll need to do the opposite. This is going to be very dependent on the type of protein powder that you’re using.
Once mixed in, stir in one tablespoon of natural peanut butter and then top with the sprinkling of peanuts. Serve immediately.
Note that for a slightly different flavor, you could also swap out the sprinkling of peanuts for a half sliced banana instead.
