Butterfinger Protein Oatmeal

1 Bowl475 cals

Candy bar flavor for breakfast without the guilt! This macro balanced and healthy Butterfinger Protein Oatmeal recipe is easy to make in just a couple minutes, delicious, and packed with all the right flavor.

For this one all you’re going to need is a microwavable bowl big enough to fit all of your ingredients into.

Add right into your bowl 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 6 ounces of unsweetened milk substitute, and 1/8 cup of water.

Microwave your oatmeal for 2 minutes. Depending on how powerful your microwave is this may take more or less time so keep an eye on it!

While still hot, add in 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of butter extract, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 serving of a sugar free fat free instant butterscotch pudding, and 1 tablespoon of a sugar free chocolate syrup.

Can’t find instant pudding? Try 1/2 teaspoon of butterscotch extract and a little optional xanthan gum to thicken it up.

Mix all of those ingredients together until you have your Butterfinger protein oatmeal!

You can optionally top or add into your oatmeal some more chocolate syrup, crushed up nuts, raisins, whipped cream, flavored Greek yogurt, and so on. Let us know what creative ways you change your oatmeal up in the comments below.

    Thanks for the recipe, Derek. I’ve tried a few of your recipes now, and decided to try the Butterfinger oatmeal this morning. It’s absolutely delicious. However, I’m glad I watched your video first because your recipe list says shredded coconut and not Cocoa powder. LOL. I look forward to making more of your recipes. I’m going to make your protein cheesecake tonight. Thanks again.

      Thanks Corey! Made sure to fix that. Must have been in the mood for coconut when I was writing them! Lol. Much appreciated
