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?
