S’mores Protein Oatmeal

1 Bowl578 cals

Start your morning with a healthier alternative to your favorite campfire dessert! This S’mores Protein Oatmeal recipe takes just a couple minutes to prep, has all the right flavors without the guilt, and is packed with diet friendly macros!

Unless you’re making your oatmeal on the stovetop the only thing you’ll need for this recipe is your favorite microwavable oatmeal bowl and your microwave!

To make this in the microwave all you need to do is add 1/2 cup of rolled oats and 6 ounces of unsweetened milk substitute into your bowl.

Give those ingredients a quick mix and microwave them for around 2 minutes. Microwave time may vary depending on how powerful your microwave is so keep this in mind.

While still hot, mix in 1 1/2 scoops of a chocolate protein powder and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.

To make this on the stovetop you would simply just bring your milk to a boil, add your oats in, reduce your heat, and let it simmer for a few minutes while occasionally stirring it until your oats thicken up.

Want more of a vanilla s’mores protein oatmeal? Use vanilla protein powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Protein S’mores Topping

To “s’mores” your oatmeal all you need to do is to top it with 1 crushed up low fat graham cracker, 1 tablespoon of sugar free chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons of marshmallow bits.

Did you know that in 2 tablespoons of marshmallow bits there’s only 20 calories? You can find these down the coffee aisle of most grocery stores.

Diet tip? Cut down on the carbs using 1/2 the amount of ingredients in your s’mores topping.

    10/10 would eat again. Awesome creativity and I love the tips on how to cut down on carbs. Have you thought about using an oven safe bowl and popping it under the broiler or something for a few minutes to melt the chocolate and brown the marshmallows? I don’t know if it would work or not! But thanks for the awesomeness in this!!

      Josie, I haven’t thought about that but now I HAVE to try it! Thank you for the idea! 🙂

    Before I comment on this recipe I just wanted to take a sec to commend you! I love all your videos, subscribe to your you tube channel and love trying your recipes. I really appreciate your hard work and your site is full of great info! I also love the protein powder you recommend (vanilla ice cream flavor so far (that Amazon was offering) is the only one I got and love it!). I attempted to make the oatmeal recipe this am (was totally out of eggs 🙁 and am pretty bummed. I don’t want to throw it away but can’t figure out ways to save it, maybe at least for lunch since I already got something else to eat? I am wondering if I should add more oats and put in some sugar alternative of some sort? I think 2 tbs of chocolate powder is a bit too much. It made my oatmeal quite bitter. I will start with a tsp next time. Granted I didn’t add marshmallows to mine (don’t like them) and used the vanilla chocolate powder, but the oamtmeal was so needing more sweetness to counteract the bitterness of the choco powder. Keep up the good work!Thanks for all the free info you share with all of us!

      Hi Natalie! I know this is late so I’m guessing you either ate it or tossed it. Did you end up saving it? How do you typically make your oatmeal? I know you mentioned not having eggs so I was just wondering since I don’t use them! Thanks for the love!
