High Protein Oatmeal Recipe

Greek Yogurt Protein Oatmeal

I love oatmeal and all it’s gooey high fiber yumminess. Unfortunately high protein oatmeal is not..sigh.. and the carb count can really add up when you add fruit, and sugar (or my Canadian favorite – maple syrup). I refuse to give up fruit, but I am happy to sub the sugar for stevia, and add a big dollop of greek yogurt and a sprinkle of nuts for protein. So add this to your list of high protein breakfast foods ideas folks! In the future I want to try putting some protein powder in the mix, but for now here it is, quick and simple – my high protein oatmeal recipe. I put guava, blackberries, and pecans on mine, but you can put whatever fruits and nuts make you happy :)
