Boost your protein levels and stay satiated all morning with this simple protein porridge. Load with your favourite toppings – we used granola, banana, chocolate chips and seeds
- Serves: 1 person
- 40g oats (use gluten-free, if needed)
- 250ml liquid (milk, nut milk or half milk/half water will work), plus an extra 1-2 tbsp
- 15g protein powder
- 1tsp ground cinnamon
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- banana slices
- chocolate chips
- shelled hemp seeds
Step 1Put the oats and liquid in a pan, and cook on a medium heat for 2-3 mins or until thick and creamy. Turn down the heat and whisk in the protein powder until smooth. Pour in another dash or two of liquid, add the cinnamon and vanilla, and whisk for another minute until deliciously creamy. The mixture will thicken up on cooling so take off the heat a little before it reaches your desired texture.
Step 2Pour the porridge into a bowl and serve with topping ingredients. For an additional protein boost, hemp seeds are a great choice.
