Start every morning with 2 healthy options, Protein Cereal AND Protein Oatmeal! These high protein breakfast recipes are super easy to make in minutes, packed with great macros for almost any diet, and absolutely delicious.
To make this healthy cereal all you need to do is take out a cereal bowl or something to mix your powder in, a spoon, and your ingredients.
Start by mixing together right in your cereal bowl 1 cup of unsweetened milk substitute or fat free milk and 1 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder.
If your protein powder tends to clump when mixed with a spoon try mixing it together with your milk in a shaker bottle instead.
Once your powder is mixed, add in 1 serving of your choice cereal.
This is the ratio I use for my protein cereal, multiply or divide accordingly if you want more or less.
- Milk (1 Cup)
- Protein Powder (1 Scoop)
- Cereal (1 Serving)
Pro tip? Mix and match your protein powder and cereal flavors for unlimited protein cereal variations!
To quickly make your proats take out a microwavable bowl and add right into it 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 2/3 cup of water, and 1/3 cup of unsweetened milk substitute or fat free milk.
Microwave your oatmeal for around 2 minutes. Depending on how powerful your microwave is this time can change so make sure to keep an eye on it!
If you don’t like the microwave or don’t have one you can easily make this on the stovetop. How? Bring your liquids to a boil, reduce your heat to low, add your oats in, and let it simmer until it thickens while occasionally stirring it.
Once your oats are ready and while still hot, mix in the rest of your ingredients starting with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.
Follow your peanut butter with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 10-15 drops of some optional liquid sweetener or your choice regular sweetener.
Whatever flavor protein powder you want to use is completely up to you, just make sure it tastes good!
Top the protein oatmeal with fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, crushed up nuts, sugar free syrups, or anything else you want. Let us know some of your favorite variations in the comments below!
