Protein-Packed Peanut Butter Oatmeal
I love any peanut butter and banana combination, and in a warm bowl of oats in the morning, it’s hard not to! This is a quick protein packed oatmeal recipe which you can adjust to your liking. Easy to make in the morning to start the day off with energy. I like to add an egg into my oatmeal because it makes it fluffier, and adds protein. If you haven’t tried it with an egg, I bet you won’t go back to regular oats again!
I personally prefer to make my porridge on the stove, but if you’re really in a rush you can make this is the microwave too.
Serves: 1 Cooking time: 15 mins Total time: 20 mins
1 whole egg
15g peanut butter
On the stove: Start by heating up a pan of water until it boils, and add your oats with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Lower the heat down to a simmer and stir occasionally for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl whisk an egg up and stir it into the oats. Turn up the heat and cook it for another 5 minutes adding any liquid if needed. Serve it in a bowl and add the milk. Top it up with a chopped banana, and the peanut butter. Ready to eat!
In the microwave: If you choose to do it in the microwave, simply add your oats, whisked egg and water into a bowl. Make sure its big enough or it could overflow! Microwave this for 2 minutes and it will need a stir. Add more liquid if needed and microwave it for another minute. Now you can stir in the milk and top it up with the banana and peanut butter.
You can skip the egg if you don’t like them or eat them, but if you do I completely recommend you try it, and tell me if you liked it.
