Blueberry Protein Oatmeal Recipe

Here’s a recipe that will be sure to please those who love the taste of blueberries as well as include a healthy serving of protein.  This recipe makes a fairly large bowl of oatmeal, making it a great recipe for breakfast.  You can reduce the ingredients if you want less overall calories.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup steel-cut oats
1/3 cup oat bran
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop chocolate or vanilla whey protein powder

Water, as directed
ΒΌ teaspoon salt
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of Splenda/Stevia

Instructions:

Add steel cut oats into 3 to 4 cups of water at night before you go to bed.  Bring to a boil, simmer a couple of minutes, then remove from heat and cover the pot. The longer you simmer and/or the more water you use, the larger the bowl of oatmeal as the oats will expand with more water.

In the morning, bring the oats to a simmer once again on medium-low heat, adding the salt, cinnamon, and raw oat bran. Continue stirring and simmering for 5 minutes, or until you get the desired thickness.  Turn off the heat, then add the frozen blueberries and either Splenda or Stevia.

Stir until the blueberries are melted, thus cooling the oatmeal and allowing the protein powder to be added. The consistency should be fairly thick, especially after the oat bran has been added and cooked a bit.  You might need to add some water in the morning, depending on how much was boiled-off the night before.

Question about soaking the oats, I’m using the water used for soaking to bring to a boil right? I’m not throwing it out? Just checking.
