Speedy Protein-Powered Oat Recipe

Chocolate Oats

I’m on a mission to help my busy clients by creating quick, easy and nutritious recipe ideas. Today’s healthy recipe are oat based with a 20g power-packed protein boost. I have been experimenting with protein powder – a little hint – when buying whey protein powder always check that it is ‘undenatured’ as this should mean the protein is at its best to help with muscle growth and repair.

You can make a big batch of these oats and store them in the fridge. The recipe below was a meal however you can divide it up, add some fruit and have it as an afternoon snack especially if you tend to have that mid-afternoon #sweetcraving or you are #training in the evening. Enjoy!

I use The Protein Works protein powders.
