3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  1. It’s high in protein. Oats provide a wonderful source of healthy carbs but are usually lacking in the protein department. We beefed up this classic breakfast staple by infusing it with protein from two different sources, giving it both a smooth texture and an enhanced flavor.
  2. It’s easy and quick to make. Breakfast time is usually filled with some hustle and bustle, which means quick and easy options are the best way to go. This high-protein oatmeal with cottage cheese is simple to make and ready in less than 10 minutes.
  3. You can make it your own. One thing that I love about macros is that you have the freedom and flexibility to fill them how you wish and recipes like this make doing to fun and easy. You can feel free to add as many toppings and mix-ins as you like depending on your preferences and your macro goals.

Equipment

  • 1 Small saucepan
  • Mixing spoons
  • 1 Small Mixing Bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese (I like to use Good Culture)
  • ½ scoop vanilla protein powder (I like 1st Phorm Level-1 or Clean Simple Eats code TAMI to save)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup
  • Fresh berries (e.g., strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) for topping
  • Chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts) for garnish (optional)

Instructions
 

  • In a small saucepan, combine the old-fashioned oats and unsweetened almond milk, stirring until combined. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture reaches a gentle simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low and allow to cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the oats are soft and thick.
  • Once cooked, remove from heat and mix in the cottage cheese, vanilla extract, protein powder, sugar-free maple syrup, and optional cinnamon. Stir together until combined.
  • Transfer oatmeal to a serving bowl, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

Notes

Adjust the sweetness and toppings to suit your taste preferences and dietary needs.
Adjust the amount of milk used based on your consistency preference. Use more milk for a runnier oatmeal and less milk for a thicker oatmeal.
The nutrition information reflects the oatmeal without any optional toppings, if adding toppings, be sure to account for those when logging.
