My Absolute Favorite High Protein Oatmeal and Eggs Breakfast

Oatmeal and Eggs 2-001

Let me tell you about my love for this oatmeal…for starters, I eat it just about everyday for breakfast and I never get tired of it. Ever.  I feel like I’m cheating on it on days that I choose to eat something else. After I finish eating this bowl of heaven I think to myself how I would be completely okay with eating the exact same thing as my next meal. Actually, not just completely okay; I would want very badly to eat it as my next meal. In fact, nutritional needs aside, I would eat this oatmeal for every meal of the day if I could. This is no exaggeration.

How are my persuasion skills working right now? Are you dying, waiting for me to share the recipe with you yet, or shall I tantalize you some more?

Here’s a picture of some yummy eggs.
A very delicious addition to the oatmeal.

Okay, okay, enough with the torture! Here is the recipe:

Oatmeal and Eggs 1-001

High Protein Oatmeal (with scrambled eggs)

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup almond milk (I like So Delicious Almond Plus Protein Unsweetened)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like Metrx Protein Plus)
cinnamon
2 eggs
1.5 tbsp liquid egg whites

Directions:

1. Place oats and water in a bowl. Microwave for 1 min 30 sec.
2. Add half of the 1/4 cup of almond milk, stir, and microwave again for 30 sec.
3. Set aside to cool.
4. While the oatmeal is cooling, beat the 2 eggs and 1.5 tbsp of egg whites together. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.
5. Heat a small pan on low and spray with PAM or another olive oil spray.
6. Once the pan is warm, add the egg mixture and cook to your liking.
7. After the oatmeal has cooled a bit, add half of the protein powder and the rest of the almond milk and stir (the reason I don’t add all of the protein powder is because its too much to stir all at once)
8. Add the other half of protein powder. Depending on how thin or thick your protein powder is, you may need to add a bit of water.
9. Top your oatmeal with a sprinkle of cinnamon, stir it up, and you’re all set!

  1. Hey! I’m having a High protein Low carb diet for cutting body fat. I don’t have budget for the protein powder, so can i replace it with peanut butter? and also can i substitute the water and almond milk with skim milk?

    • Hey Carine! Thanks for the question. Protein powder (depending on what brand you get and where) can actually be quite inexpensive for the amount per serving. But peanut butter or almond butter is great to add to oatmeal! I actually have been doing it a lot lately myself so keep an eye out for another oatmeal posting soon! Just make sure that your peanut or almond butter is all natural with no added sugar or oils. Chia seeds are also a great source of healthy fat and protein for relatively few carbs. And yes, of course, you can substitute any other kind of milk for the almond milk and water. Just know that the nutritional information that I provided will be a bit different. Good luck with your journey!
