Power Oatmeal With Blueberries and Flax

The name says it all! I've been on a major oatmeal kick lately and wanted to create something that had just enough protein AND still very tasty! I use half a serving of Syntax Vanilla Bean protein powder with this recipe which has 12g of protein, as that is plenty of protein at one time for me - 1/2 a scoop measures a slightly heaping 1/8 cup. Your 'scoop' might be different sized - if you change the volume of the powder, you'll need to adjust the water accordingly. Don't skip the flaxmeal, I think its really important for the texture and flavor! I think you could use frozen blueberries, although I haven't tried it, just be sure to return your oatmeal to the microwave after adding them to warm them up. I usually don't add sugar or milk to my oatmeal and didn't include them in the recipe, but feel free to do so.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine oats, flax and cinnamon. Add water and mix well. Don't add the protein powder or it will become overcooked-yick!
  2. Microwave for one minute. **Microwave times given are for a 1300wt microwave, you will probably need more time if you have a smaller wattage microwave.**.
  3. Remove bowl from microwave and stir in protein powder.
  4. Return to microwave and set timer for 2 minutes, stirring every 20-30 seconds until your desired consistency is reached. *Watch carefully because the protein powder will puff and you don't want a mess!
  5. Add blueberries and stir - I like warm blueberries so I return the bowl to the microwave for another 15-20 seconds.
  6. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon.

Great oatmeal! Nutritious and filling. No need for added sweetner! I used quick cooking oats, so only needed 2 min. cook time in the microwave. I enjoyed the flavor combos!

Very quick for a power packed nutritious breakfast. I made on the stovetop, as written, except for adding some honey. My protein powder is plain, so like other reviewers added a touch of vanilla. Considering this is made with water, it's quite creamy....although next time I'd probably do half soy milk, half water. Like the blueberry cinnamon combo!
