Quick Whipped Nutella Protein Oatmeal

I obsess over all things Nutella.  When I decided yesterday to shake things up in  the breakfast department.  I try to eat lean protein portion at every meal.  I don’t always have time to cook egg whites and turkey bacon, sometimes protein shakes don’t fill my growling belly long enough.  Plus, this week all I can think about is chocolate. 

Here’s my low guilt chocolate indulgence recipe.

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 cup skim milk

1/2 cup boiling water

1 tablespoon Nutella

1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder

****************************************************

Combine the oats, milk, and water in a small pan & cook for maybe 5 minutes (or until you get it a little soup-ier than your desired consistency).

Remove from heat.  Add in a giant overflowing tablespoon of Nutella.

Stir it up.  Add in 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder.

Stir it well.  Add a tablespoon of milk if the powder looks at all pastey.  (That’s why I leave the oats with a bit of extra liquid)

Serve!

Trust me, it tastes better than it looks!

It’s also a great PMS CURE post workout meal.  Quick absorbing carbs + whey protein = fast muscle absorption. True dat.

  2. You can put almost anything in oats and I’d love them…but make it something like Nutella and I’d be in loooove

  3. I love Nutella too and this bowl of oats sounds so good! My other new obsession is Biscoff spread. If you like Nutella, you’d love it too!
