Protein-Packed Steel Cut Oatmeal

January 20th, 2018 | no comments

 

Oatmeal used to be a breakfast staple for me, but I noticed I would get hungry an hour or so afterwards. So I sprinkled a few nuts on top and the extra fat seemed to help sustain me a little while longer…but it still wasn’t enough. Then I tried stirring in some plant-based protein powder. The texture seemed off to me and I simply didn’t enjoy it.

Finally I hit the jackpot of just the right oatmeal ingredients to really make it stick to my ribs! And the magic ingredient? Eggs!

This recipe adds two eggs to the final 10 minutes of cook time, offering an extra four grams of protein per serving.

But don’t stop with the eggs! Adding 1/4 cup of nuts and a tablespoon of seeds really makes an impact on satiety and blood sugar control. I love to top mine off with a little cinnamon and a 1/2 cup of berries, or diced apple or pear with the skin on!
