Perfect Oatmeal Cookie Protein Oats Recipe

Getting enough protein at breakfast can be a difficult task, especially if you’re a vegetarian or not a fan of eggs. A great way to boost your protein intake at breakfast is with protein powder.

Instead of chugging a chalking and heavy protein shake, however, you can now add protein powder right into your morning cup of hot coffee or tea as well as in breakfast foods like pancakes, hot cereals, and oatmeal.

Nutritional consultant and clinical dietician Abby Langer stopped by the Allo test kitchens to share one of her go-to recipes for using protein powder at breakfast: oatmeal cookie protein oats.

Oatmeal Cookie Protein Oats Recipe

All you need for this one is a microwave, a bowl, and a spoon. It’s a quick and easy recipe that doesn’t make a mess and gives you a great start to your morning with an extra 10 grams of protein to fuel your day.

One of the best parts of this recipe is you can easily customize it to make it your own. For the classic oatmeal cookie taste, we recommend using either the natural unflavored or vanilla-flavored Allo protein powder.

Feel free to add as much or as little chia seeds, raisins, and maple syrup as you like, throw in a pinch of cinnamon, or experiment with Allo’s caramel and hazelnut flavored protein powders. And, as always, any type of plain or vanilla-flavored plant-based milk can be used in place of animal milk.
