Chocolate Protein Powder Oatmeal Recipe
One breakfast I’ve been loving is Double Chocolate Protein Powder Oatmeal. With this Chocolate Protein Oatmeal I get what I need: protein to keep energy up and chocolate. Because who doesn’t want chocolate in the morning? I look forward to waking up now!
Here’s a quick recipe video I made to show you how easy it is to make!
For my Chocolate Protein Powder Oatmeal you need one scoop of protein powder (I use Vega Essentials powder) and a few basic ingredients that I know you have in your pantry. Unlike other chocolate oatmeal recipes you don’t need cocoa powder because the protein powder adds enough chocolate taste.
I prefer using unsweetened vanilla almond milk because I love the taste, but you can use dairy, or even oat milk.
How to Make Chocolate Protein Oatmeal
This protein oatmeal is extremely easy to make, there’s really only 3 steps.
MIX. Combine milk (dairy or plant based), protein powder, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium high heat, whisking for about 3 minutes.
BOIL. Add in the rolled oats and continue to cook for about 3-4 more minutes or until they reach a light boil.
SERVE. Pour oatmeal in a bowl and then add in a handful of chocolate chips. Serve and enjoy!
