I love easy, high-protein recipes.
This one is 100% G.L.A.D. Diet approved and is ridiculously easy to make!
The GL for this recipe is 10, so it’s a good choice in terms of controlling blood sugar levels.
Yep – high-protein oats/porridge.
I had already thought of this combo before, but as cooked whey tastes disgusting, (as anyone who has ever tried to make protein pancakes with whey can attest to) I never actually went as far as to actually make it.
However, there is an easy way around this.
Cook your oats in some water while you make a whey shake with milk separately. Then when the oats are ready, pour the milky whey goodness on top and mix it in .
Here’s how I make it…
- 30g serving of quaker oats
- 100ml / 3.5 fl oz water
- 25g serving Whey Protein Isolate
- 200ml / 7 fl oz milk
* Mix together your water and oats and microwave for 1.5 minutes.
* Mix your whey with semi-skimmed milk in a Mixer Cup and leave to one side
* When the oats are done give them a quick stir, then mix your shake in
This will provide approximately 290 calories made up of the following macronutrient profile:
Protein – 32grams
Carbs– 28grams (net)
Fat – 5.5grams
It really tastes great, especially with vanilla or banana flavored whey. I would imagine raspberry or strawberry would be too weird of a combination.
So you’ve got some quality protein, some slow-releasing carbs, and if you want to be really healthy, sprinkle a teaspoon of flax seed on top for some essential fatty acids.
