Banana-Berry Baked Protein Oats

 

Protein oats are definitely one of my go-to breakfasts. I mix up the flavors, and sometimes I soak them overnight. THIS is something I have not tried before and what a delicious way to change up my breakfast! Low-fat, over 11g of protein, and under 200 calories!

This is a good base recipe, you can really mix and match the flavors and what you add in – I can’t wait to play around with this and I hope you guys enjoy it, if you make it let me know how it is!

Sweet Potato Toast

This is a great, and delicious, alternative to bread for your toast! It still has carbs of course, but at 13g for half of a sweet potato (approximately two slices of the “toast”) it’s definitely less, and then of course there’s the great nutrients that it has!

I had one with 1/4 of an avocado, pink himalaya sea salt, chia seeds and flax seeds, and the other with this peanut butter below – which is delicious! Low calorie and packed with protein, it’s a powder that you mix with a little water – then I added bananas and honey on that piece (and it was my favorite as opposed to the avocado toast). Both of these with everything on it was only 250 calories guys, and incredibly filling!

Try it sometime and experiment with your choice of topping – cottage cheese would be delicious, and lot of other things! Even a little greek yogurt with honey, yum!

Slice a raw sweet potato thin, approx. 1/4 inch slices, then toast them for 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Protein Waffles

This is so easy, and pretty delicious! I always like protein pancakes because they come out a little lighter and fluffier than waffles but these are a good break once and awhile! You can substitute any flavor of protein powder to change the flavor of your waffles, or use unflavored!

Ingredients:

2 eggs + 5 egg whites

1/3 cup steel cut oats

1 tbsp each flax seeds and chia seeds

3 scoops salted caramel protein powder

1 tbsp agave nectar or honey

pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt

(Makes 3-4 servings)

img_3515I always blend the eggs first before adding everything else, because it helps to make it a little lighter.

Add everything else in and blend it up!
