High Protein Baked Oatmeal
While those ingredients are mixing, take out a an oven safe dish. You could make multiple servings in smaller dishes or just use one dish for the entire recipe.
Pour your mix in and optionally top it. Sugar free chocolate chips, pieces of a protein bar, nuts, fruit, or anything else you want.
Put your easy high protein baked oatmeal into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20-30 minutes depending on how big your dish is.
So there is your protein packed oatmeal that you can easily switch up and yes, it’s absolutely delicious!
Now every good meal needs a drink so how about some coffee? Not just any coffee, flavored protein coffee!
Protein Bar Coffee
All you need for this is 3 things. Your coffee, something to put your coffee in, and your choice flavor protein bar which brings us to the sponsor of this recipe…Built Bar!
If you’ve not tried these bars yet, now is the time. There’s a flavor for any craving you’ll ever have, they’re packed with protein, and super calorie friendly. You can check them out by clicking here. Use Coupon Code “HOWES10” for a discount!
Now that you have your choice protein bar (I went with salted caramel) break off a piece it and put it into the bottom of your coffee cup. Bring that cup over to your liquid energy machine and prepare your coffee.
As you pour your hot coffee into your cup, the protein bar will melt giving your coffee some added protein and of course…flavor! You might need to mix it up a bit but it should melt pretty quick.
Another alternative is to use your protein bar and just mix it around in your coffee while it’s hot.
If you like coffee, don’t sleep on trying this protein coffee! It’s seriously an awesome way to give it some extra flavor.
Speaking of coffee, what’s your favorite way to drink it?

Half a container or yogurt is not a measurement! Halfway through making this recipe and aim at a standstill because I don’t know how much yogurt to use
Hi Alice! On all of our recipes we have metric conversions which will show you the weight of each ingredient. You can find this by clicking “Metric” at the top of the ingredient list. Hope this helps!
Just made this for my husband and I. We love it! It’s like a chocolate chip banana bread when it’s all baked. We put it in the air fryer on bake setting for 8 minutes. Perfection, thanks for sharing
Question: I used plain low fat greek yoghurt and I am afraid that makes the result a little sour tasting, is that correct?
Love the simplicity of the recipe btw! Love your channel!
It could (brand dependent). Did you also use unflavored protein powder? I’d add a little vanilla extract in or try using a flavor next time! Thank you Kay!
I’ll be making this soon as it looks great!
If I’m using PB2 (powdered peanut butter), how much do I use in this recipe? Is it 1:1?
I’d love to see you start doing some recipes with PB2 or other powdered peanut butters!
I’ve not tried it myself but I think you’d be fine with a 1:1 substitute!
Can I substitute PB for something else to make it lower in calories ?
Absolutely, a powdered peanut butter should work great for this.
For the yogurt, is it for ½ of a 75g container or ½ of a container, which should be about 75g? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this!
Hi Kim! This would be 75g total (1/2 of a standard 150g container). Hope this helps!
Lovely recipes! It’s good to know a protein and sugar free world out there.
Only I had a question do u have recipes with just protein and carbs no fat…as currently I am on a low cal diet. And not mixing carbs and fat.
Thank you Khushi. We do offer fat free substitutes to most of our recipes which may help you achieve this!
Great recipe! Hope some more come out soon!
This recipe is amazing! I didn’t have the chocolate chips but it’s still amazing! I’ve tried other protein recipes before from other sites that have just not been very good. So glad I found you, the cheesecakes and baked apple pie recipes look amazing, trying those next! Thank you!!
Thanks Matt! It’s definitely one of my favorites lately. Let me know how you like the other recipes too.
Do you think this would also work well with other types of fruit, such as blueberries or cherries?
Absolutely! I plan to film a couple more variations of this in the future.
The second time I made this I put blueberries along the bottom of my dish, add half of my batter, then add almonds. Then the rest of my Batter and topped with a few chocolate chips.
Delicious and love that I get a fruit and crunchy in there along with a little sweet treat on the top.
The third time I made it I added my Thrive 6 mushroom mixture, ground ginger. Ground chia seeds and it didn’t change the taste of my baked oatmeal. It was still super yummy. I am happy to be able to hid some things in my oatmeal lol
