After missing the fluffy white Sunbeam PB&J sandwiches of my childhood, i’ve recently been indulging in pb&j flavored everything!
Queue, The Oats!
The other day while shopping and looking for some new oatmeal to try, I ran across some “protein oats”. Hey, I might still have to cook them on the stove top, but I figured why not? (Oh, how I miss some of the conveniences of America!) This oatmeal is naturally lactose and milk free while maintaining a higher protein count, although, it is processed in a facility where milk products are handled. If you have a serious milk allergy, make sure to avoid this product!
The Texture and Cooking!
The texture of the oats seems odd as it has “ærteprotein crisps”, AKA Pea Protein Crisps. When cooked they do not add any additional taste or texture. I would say this oatmeal cooks quickly (about 3 minutes), tastes plain, isn’t special, etc. It definitely requires some spicing up, hence my toppings of choice! I do not recommend trying to cook this oatmeal in the microwave as it requires near constant stirring to achieve a desirable texture.
Crunchy peanut butter, because, obviously. Low calorie berry jam. And my favorite BodyLab Superfood raspberry zero topping!
- Weigh out your desired amount of oats. I used 50g here.
- Cook with water on stove top over high heat for 3 minutes. You can add a packet of zero calorie sweetener if desired.
- Pour into a bowl.
- While still hot top with 1.5 tablespoons of peanut butter, a tablespoon of jam, and zero calorie topping!
- Wait for a few minutes, and enjoy!
