Notes

How-to-Use
Athletes: It doesn't get much more perfect than these guys for a balanced breakfast. The recipe, as written, contains 375 calories, 31 gm protein, 45 gm carbs. Many athletes will want to add another carbohydrate to complete their recovery meal - like a banana or 2 slices of toast.
Healthy Eating: Start your day off right with some ridiculously balanced nutrition. Research shows eating enough at breakfast can help manage our appetite throughout the whole day. Breakfast is NOT where you want to skimp!! These oats should keep you satisfied for hours - if not, check out the recommendations under 'Athletes' for more.
Kids: I ate these too fast to share with the kiddos. But, if you have an active teen or pre-teen who you are battling busy mornings with, make these and leave them in the fridge for them.
Other Thoughts
  • These can easily be made vegan with nondairy milk and yogurt and vegan protein powder. I'd recommend using a whole serving of vegan protein powder as the nondairy yogurts do not provide much protein. Adjust the amount of liquid as needed - sometimes vegan protein powders absorb more liquid, therefore need more in a recipe.

  • I hung onto these guys for 4 days and tried a bite every day to test how well they saved. The flavor stayed consistent. But, the texture changes dramatically on day 3 - less chewy. If you make then for a week, I'd recommend making 2 - 3 at a time. Then, repeat.
