High Protein Oatmeal

Tonia Bloom
A really easy breakfast with quick-cooking oatmeal and high-protein milk. I add a little brown sugar and nuts so it's not so plain.

Equipment

  • Microwave

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup Quick Cooking Oatmeal
  • 1 cup Reduced Fat High Protein Milk such as Fairlife® 2% Reduced Fat
  • 1 tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Walnuts chopped

Instructions
 

  • Place milk and oatmeal in a microwave save bowl. Cover with a paper towel or paper plate. Microwave at full power for 1-3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and walnuts.
  • Note: I microwave ¾ cup of milk with the oatmeal for 90 seconds. Then I stir in the remaining ¼ cup of milk, sugar, and walnuts.

Notes

Note on Milk:  Standard milk contains 8 grams of Protein.  I used to buy Horizon High Protein milk, but I can't find it anymore.  Fairlife's packaging doesn't state that it is high protein, so again, you need to read the labels.  One cup of Fairlife milk contains 13 grams of protein, which is really good.  Plus, it tastes great.
