Oatmeal Cookie Protein Breakfast
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup dried oats
1 scoop vanilla soy protein powder
2 tablespoon wheat germ or ground flaxseed
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries
maple syrup or other sweetener to taste
Mix almond milk, vanilla protein powder, and oats together in a sauce pan over medium heat.
While cooking set wheat germ or flaxseed, walnuts, and dried cranberries in serving bowl. When oats have finishe'd cooking, pour mixture over dried ingredients, mix together, and sweeten to taste.
I know this sounds a lot like just plain ole oatmeal, but this turns out pretty thick. Its a lot like eating cookie dough, which for breakfast feels sinful but this recipe is actually pretty healthy! Its loaded with protein, carbs, and omega 3s. A great way to start the day and very simple!
You can add mashed banana in lieu of the maple syrup if you'd like as well.
