Friends, have you ever wondered how do you make protein porridge?

Or maybe how to use protein powder at breakfast time that isn’t a smoothie?

Well, Let me introduce you to one of my most favorite recipes that I ever created in the 1.5 years that FFF has had it’s own little space in the interwebz… The protein PACKED version of my  gluten free cinnamon roll overnight oats.

….That just so happens to be ready in 5 minutes. And you don’t have to make an actual homemade cinnamon rolls recipe and mess with yeast. Which means you don’t need to keep checking on your dough every 34.6 seconds to see if it’s risen enough so that you can bake it and FACE PLANT into all things sweet, gooey and full of cinnamon perfection.

Why you will LOVE This Recipe

Starting the day with oats is something that I do ALL the time. On top of being delicious, oatmeal is a comforting, satisfying way to start the day and it really fills you up and sticks to your bones! I love cooking up a bowl of cookie dough protein oatmeal in the morning or prepping some easy overnight steel cut oats for a breakfast-made-easy the next day. If you’re an oatmeal lover like me, this protein oatmeal recipe is sure to be a hit in your household. It’s rich and creamy, made with better-for-you ingredients, and has a hint of cinnamon and the perfect amount of sweetness to curb that craving. 

Ingredients Needed

Ok, so now that your stomach is grumbling and you’re ready to cook up a pot of high protein oatmeal, let’s pull together everything we will need to make it a success! Here’s what you’ll need to grab from the pantry and fridge or pick up at the store:

How to make Cinnamon Roll Protein Oatmeal

Boil

Add the oatmeal and sweetener to a small pot. Add in the water and some of the vanilla and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat once it is boiling and cook until the oats have thickened. Set it aside to cool it.

Mix

In a small bowl, add the protein powder, cinnamon and coconut sugar and stir to combine. Add in the water, a little bit at a time, until the mixture forms a spreadable paste. In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese and remaining vanilla. 

Enjoy

Add the cream cheese mixture and the cinnamon mixture to the oatmeal and stir it around. DEVOUR!

Recipe Substitutions

If this recipe doesn’t quite fit your needs when it comes to dietary preferences and needs, I encourage you to switch it up! For dairy free and vegan, use dairy free protein powder and dairy free cream cheese. To make this oatmeal a bit sweeter, use brown sugar instead of coconut sugar. You could make this oatmeal with milk to make it even creamier, and you could also try cooking it in the microwave instead of on the stovetop. I haven’t tried to make a protein baked oatmeal version of this recipe, but if you do, let me know how it turns out for you!

How to store Oatmeal for Meal Prep

If you want to make a few servings of this protein oatmeal for meals and snacks during the week, I highly recommend it! It keeps well in the fridge when stored in an airtight container and will last up to 3 days. Simply reheat and enjoy!

Can you add protein powder to oatmeal?Yes! I love doing it and do it everyday. I recommend adding your protein powder to your oatmeal AFTER you cook your oats. I also recommend making your oats a little more runny than you prefer them because the powder will absorb a lot of liquid!

Is oatmeal a good source of protein?Yes! Oatmeal has more protein than other grains which means it’s a great way to start the day.

Is oatmeal good for you?Oatmeal is very good for you! Oats are a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
