What can you add to oatmeal for protein?
- Cook your oatmeal in high protein milk. If you want to add protein to your oatmeal, skim milk or soy milk (if you avoid dairy) are your best bets.
- Add egg whites.
- Stir in cottage cheese when it is done cooking.
- Add ground flax, chia seeds, or hemp seeds.
- Add a scoop of nut or seed butter on top.
Stovetop: Bring 1 cup water (or nonfat or low-fat milk) and a pinch of salt (if desired) to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in 1/2 cup oats and reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.
- The key to getting a creamy, not-gluey bowl of oatmeal is using enough water. Notice we said water—cooking oatmeal in milk tends to make a stickier, thicker oatmeal. Follow the directions on the canister using H2O, then add a splash of milk or almond milk in the bowl.
