Banana & Coconut Protein Oats

Thing you don’t like oatmeal? Or that you don't like anything besides sugary instant oats? Give this recipe a try! The protein powder + toppings is the key- as well as using milk (almond) instead of water.  Best part about it-- there were no pots or pans dirtied in making this breakfast!


  • 1/3 cup Quaker Oats
  • About 2/3 cup reduced sugar almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop of your favorite flavor protein powder (I used Optimum Nutrition Cookies & Cream)
  • 1 Tbsp lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • A pinch of coconut flakes and coconut (or brown) sugar


  • Mix uncooked oats and almond milk.
  • Cook in microwave for 2 min. There should be some extra milk- if not add some more
  • Stir in 1/2 protein powder
  • Add sliced banana, coconut milk, flakes, and sugar toppings
