You don’t need instant oats to make a quick oatmeal breakfast. You can cook Protein Banana Oatmeal on your stove in less than 10 minutes!
In fact, I encourage you to stay away from instant oats as they are highly processed (precooked and dried) and often contain added sugar. My rule of thumb is to avoid processed foods as much as possible. Old-fashioned oats, also known as rolled oats, are much less processed because they are only steamed and then rolled flat.
Ingredients (1 Serving):
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Handful of sliced almonds
- Bring water to a boil on the stove top.
- Add rolled oats and turn to low heat.
- Mash half of the banana in a bowl.
- Once most of the water has evaporated, stir in vanilla protein powder and mashed banana.
- Serve into a bowl and slice the remaining half of the banana as a topping along with a handful of sliced almonds.
This protein Banana Oatmeal breakfast leaves me feeling satisfied for hours. A study by N. A. Schwarz and colleagues, published in the 2011 issue of the “Journal of Nutrition Metabolism” discovered that oatmeal contributes to the ability to control your appetite. Oatmeal’s slow-digesting carbs offer long-lasting energy when eaten before workouts.
When paired with bananas, oatmeal makes an excellent pre-workout choice. I love bananas because they are a healthy way to sweeten up a meal while also providing rich nutritional value. Bananas are especially popular for athletes because it is a substantial boost of immediate and long-lasting energy. This is due to your body’s ability to easily digest the mix of fast and slow digesting carbohydrates. Bananas help power your muscles for an even better workout.
