Healthy chocolate cake for breakfast, proats edition! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal recipe is packed with fiber, absolutely delicious, and guaranteed to fill you up.
The first thing you’ll need to do for this one is to choose how you’d like to prepare your protein oatmeal. We’re keeping it quick today and making it in the microwave but if you have some time you can make it on the stovetop too.
To make this in the microwave all you need to do is to add right into a microwave safe bowl 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 2/3 cup of water, and 1/3 cup of unsweetened vanilla milk substitute.
Give those a quick and microwave them for around 2 minutes. Remember that microwave time may change depending on how powerful your microwave is. Keep an eye on it and remember how long it takes for next time!
Continue by adding in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, 2 tablespoons of a sugar free chocolate syrup, 1 serving of instant sugar free fat free chocolate pudding, and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.
Did you know that cocoa powder is a great source of fiber with 2 grams for every 10 calories?
Pro tip? Make sure to add in the rest of your ingredients right after the microwave (still hot).
Mix everything together until you have your chocolate peanut butter protein oatmeal.
Optionally top it with some whipped cream, more cocoa powder, and anything else you want. Let us know some of your favorite healthier toppings for this in the comments below!
