How to Mix Protein Powder Into Hot Oatmeal

A steaming bowl of oatmeal is a healthy, cholesterol-lowering breakfast that tastes great on cold mornings. Give your oatmeal extra punch by stirring in a scoop of protein powder. Protein helps to rebuild damaged muscles and gives you stamina to keep going until lunchtime. The combination of oatmeal and protein powder can also help you feel full longer, making it an asset for dieters. There is no need to add protein powder to the water while cooking the oats. You can simply add a scoop to the bowl just before eating.

Step 1

Boil 1 cup of water on the stove or in the microwave. You may wish to add a few extra tablespoons of water to compensate for the thickening action of the protein powder.

Step 2

Pour 1/2 cup of oatmeal into the boiling water. Lower heat and stir constantly for one minute.

Step 3

Add 1 scoop of protein powder to the cooked oatmeal just before eating. Whey isolate protein powder mixes smoothly into oatmeal without clumping.

Step 4

Stir the oatmeal well to blend the protein powder in thoroughly.

Step 5

Add one mashed or sliced banana to the oatmeal to make it smoother and to cover the taste of the protein powder.
