When you're short on time but still want a nutritious breakfast, reach for this recipe. This bowl of oatmeal is the perfect substitute for a hot stack of protein pancakes. It's also perfect when you wake up on a cold morning and want something warm to kick off the day.
- ¼ cup raw oats
- ¼ cup vanilla whey protein powder
- ½ cup coconut milk
- ¼ cup ground almonds
- ¼ cup chopped dates
- In a nonstick pot, bring your milk, oats, and ground almonds to a boil. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until you get a thick and "porridgy" consistency.
- Remove the oatmeal from the heat and let it cool a bit before topping the whole thing with chopped dates and the maple syrup.
- Note: Almond milk can be substituted for coconut milk. Optional add-in: 1 tsp maple extract.
