My Go-To Breakfast: Power Oats!

I have been eating oatmeal almost every day for 7 years... and I still haven't gotten tired of it.

I started making what I call - POWER OATS - when I was competing as a Division I Athlete. I would usually have a 6 am lift, where I would have a quick source of carbs like a go-go squeeze or granola bar, then come back and eat my oats as breakfast after.


Power Oats Benefits

  • The ingredients combine to deliver the perfect and powerful punch of carbs, protein, fiber, and antioxidants to kickstart your morning.

  • Can be a great post-workout breakfast to refuel and keep you full until lunchtime

  • Great for athletes, fitness lovers, and people who are constantly on the go

There is no excuse to skip breakfast.

A massive part of committing to a healthy lifestyle lies in the preparation.

It can sometimes get mundane, but I'd much rather spend a few minutes every night prepping breakfast than go for a quick bagel, muffin, or cereal that lacks nutritional density and is full of empty calories.

You can eat Power Oats COLD (as overnight oats) or heat them up in the morning and enjoy HOT!


Oatmeal base:

  • 1/2 heaping cup of rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  • 1/2-1 scoop protein powder of choice

  • 1/2- 1 whole mashed banana

  • .5-1 TBSP chia seeds

  • .5-1 TBSP flaxseed

    • Optional add-ins: .5-1 TBSP hemp seeds, 1 tsp maca powder, 1 TBSP dark chocolate chips (in the base for overnight version)


Toppings:

  • Natural nut butter (opt for no oils, salt, or sugar added)

  • Fruit

  • Dark chocolate chips (after microwaving for the hot version)


Directions

1. Get out a container of choice

2. Pour the rolled oats into the container then add the protein powder, chia seeds, and flaxseed (optional to add in maca, hemp, and for the overnight version dark chocolate chips here)

3. Combine well using a spoon

4. Pour in 1/2 cup of almond milk and mix well

5. In a small bowl on the side, mash a banana with a fork

6. Scoop mashed banana into the base and mix until well combined (add more liquid - almond milk or water if needed)

7. Scoop desired amount of natural nut butter on top, a handful of fruit, then let sit in the fridge overnight


If you prefer your oats HOT:

You would put it in the fridge after step 6 then add toppings such as nut butter, dark chocolate chips, and fruit after microwaving for 1:30-2 min.


Enjoy this superfood-packed power breakfast! Let me know if you want more recipes! 🤗⚡️
