Here’s the recipe for Todd’s Power Oatmeal (and some photos of the assembly line). This is the “fully loaded” version. You can trim the calories a bit if needed by skipping the almonds! Also, the stats below don’t show fiber which is pretty high for a dish like this…
- • ½ cup Slow Cook Oats (or steel cut oats for extra crunch)
- • 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed
- • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
- • ¼ cup raisins or dried cherries or cranberries
- • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (Whole Foods 365 brand is my favorite…no artificial sweeteners). Can double this and eliminate the nuts for more protein)
Place in glass bowl with a lid and shake vigorously. Add water or almond milk to bowl the night before eating and mix thoroughly so the ingredients are wet.
In the morning, add fresh berries (blueberries and strawberries work well) and dress with a splash of milk or almond milk to give it a nice finish. You can swap the almond milk for regular milk or water depending on what you like. Enjoy!
