Low sugar? Check! Lotsa protein? Check! Aaannd it does in fact have fiber in it I just couldn’t calculate how much…This would make a wonderful breakfast for just about anyone looking for something yummy and filling (hello protein and healthy carbs!). I had this before my leg workout and it fueled me effectively for that purpose!

Cookie dough PictureCookie Dough Baked Protein Oatmeal

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1/2 cup +1tbsp Oats

1/2 scoop Garden of Life Chocolate Raw Protein

1 tsp Psyllium Husk

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

2 tbsp Liquid Egg White (or 1 egg white)

1/2 a Banana

1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/4 cup Water

1/4 of a Cookie Dough Questbar.

1.2 tbsp Natural Crunchy (or smooth) Peanut Butter

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt 1/3 of your banana in the microwave then add your almond milk and egg white and stir up.
  3. Then add your oats, raw protein, psyllium husk, cinnamon and a few tbsp of water and combine. Keep adding water as needed to get a smooth ‘cooked oatmeal like’ consistency.
  4. Dice a 1/3 of your banana and your Quest bar and fold those in (leave a few pieces of the Quest bar for topping).
  5. Pour into a greased/sprayed foil cup and bake until the top is firm and the edges are pulling away from the side slightly. Mine took about 20 minutes.
  6. Once done, take out and let rest in the container for a few minutes before flipping out onto a plate.
  7. While its rests, make your TOPPING: Mix 1/3 scoop of chocolate protein powder with some water until you get a thick icing consistency and spread that on your cake.
  8. Top with the last 1/3 of your banana (nuked), left over quest bar pieces (I baked mine) and 1/2 a tbsp of natural peanut butter.
  9. Faceplant and Enjoy!

I hope your tastebuds sing just like mine did with this delicious and healthy breakfast treat! 😀
