Bariatric Recipes of the Week:

High Protein Oatmeal

High Protein Oatmeal

This week's Recipe of the Week is born from my LOVE, LOVE, LOVE of BSN Lean Dessert Protein Powder

.

This is the brand of protein powder I typically start my day with...

...either in the form of a protein shake, or mixed with oatmeal. So I thought I'd share my "secret oatmeal" recipe!

I taste A LOT of protein powders so that I can stand behind what I recommend, and this protein powder is by far my favorite. It tastes amazing and it's got LOTS of protein:

1 scoop = 130 calories, 20 grams of protein, 7 grams carbohydrate, and 3 grams fat.

It tastes just like it sounds...DESSERT!

Although I use the cinnamon roll or banana nut flavor in the oatmeal, BSN Lean Dessert Protein Powder

comes in lots of dessert like flavors:

  • Cinnamon Roll
  • Banana Nut
  • Banana Cream
  • Vanilla Cream
  • Chocolate Fudge
  • Chocolate Coconut
