Apple Pie Protein Oats

Breakfast, Recipes

If you are on a cinnamon kick like I have been then you have to try this snack. You can make this as a breakfast, a snack or a dessert. I personally like to have this as my post workout meal because when I train at MADabolics in Jupiter, I typically burn 300-400 calories and need to fuel my body with a meal that is macro friendly and has a lot of protein.

Lets talk ingredients!

  • 1 Apple, diced – I prefer to use Pink Lady Apples because they are crisp and don’t get soggy or brown when sitting overnight. You can used any apple you prefer though.
  • ½ Cup Old Fashioned Oats – Any brand will work.
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds – I used Organic Chia seeds from Navitas. You can buy them at your grocery store or on amazon.
  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter – In this recipe I think the creamy version is better but you can use crunchy as well.
  • 1½ tsp Cinnamon Powder – – Any brand will work.
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Protein – This can make or break the recipe. Choose a protein that you like the taste of. I find that Nature’s Best Vegan Protein by Isopure does the best in the recipes that I make. I like it because it doesn’t have any milk in it and the consistency is good when sitting overnight.
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • Water – Depending on the protein you use, you may need some additional water to make sure that the oats are not too dry. Just use a splash or two.

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Take out two small containers, bowls or cups.
  • Dice apple and put ¼ of apple pieces in each container.
  • In a separate bowl, combine oats, almond milk, chia seeds and protein and mix well. If it is too thick, add a few tbsp. of water. You want it to be a mush consistency but not too thick. If it is on the watery side this is okay because the oats and chia seeds will soak up some of the liquid.
  • Divide the mixture between the two containers.
  • Add ½ tsp cinnamon to each and top with remaining apples.
  • Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of the apples and 1tbsp of Almond Butter.
  • Set in refrigerator for 6-8 hours and enjoy! Note: You can keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
