Pistachio Cranberry Protein Oatmeal

1 Bowl527 cals

One of my favorite ways to prepare my oatmeal. This Pistachio Cranberry Protein Oatmeal recipe is high in complex carbs, fiber, and protein all while tasting like a cake version of a thin mint girl scout cookie!

Tips:

  • Top with cocoa powder, whipped cream, cool whip, and/or more nuts!
  • To cut down on the carbs use a milk substitute and/or use half as many cranberries and pistachio nuts!

    Derek!..
    where have you been all my life!.. haha..
    wow… your recipes are amazing!.. it helps me convert my boring protein shake into a fun, tasteful “I cannot wait for my shake meal”!… very simple, easy to follow and cheap.. what else can we ask for!
    I love how you have incorporated a small gym section at the end of the videos… I think we would love to see more of those…
    I was wondering how come you never use oat flour?.. but instead you prefer to grind the oats.. just curious…

    thank you so much!!!

    Keep it up!.. 🙂

    Liked this recipe a lot this morning. A little too much peppermint for me, next time I’m going to try it without, but that’s a personal preference. Keep em’ coming!

    This looks amazing! I’m half-contemplating running out to the store to get peppermint extract and pistachio jello just so I can make this now, but will instead try to be sensible and wait til I eat my way through the meals I’ve already made. Can’t wait to try it out though! :]
