Todd’s Power Oats…the Sunday evening assembly line makes it easy to make a week’s worth of healthy breakfast in about 5 minutes!


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!

Here are the stats:

Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp 6 2 0 0
Almonds, dry roasted, 0.75 oz (22 whole kernels) 127 4 11 5
Old Fashioned Quaker Oatmeal- Plain (1/2 cup dry), 1 serving 150 27 3 5
*Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 2 tbsp 60 4 5 3

Ultimate CHIAlife Chia Seed, 0.5 tbsp 30 3 2 1
