Collage protein-added super easy gluten-free oatmeal!

You hardly need a "recipe" for easy instant oatmeal from scratch, but I have been doing this off and on for months now and just think it is such a good partial breakfast solution I have to share!

This post contains affiliate links.

I stopped eating oats for many years but have added them back into my diet with no issues, plus they say they can help with breast milk production--big plus for me since I went back to work.

I love adding collagen protein to things (smoothies, treats, baked goods, drinks... see more on my recipes page!) AND it's a great supplement to help with hair, skin, and nail growth--I need that right now with my postpartum hair loss!

Also, this simple recipe below takes 1 minute to cook for a single serving, and not much longer to assemble. SO fast and easy.

This recipe is great for anyone, but especially good for pregnant or postpartum moms!

Collage protein-added gluten-free oatmeal recipe


Ingredients:



    Instructions:


    1. Combine oats, protein powder, and sea salt in a bowl. Add 3/4 cup water (I usually just approximate in the measuring cup I used to scoop out 1/2 cup of oats).
    2. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
    3. Stir up and toss in add-ins of choice. 
    4. Add half-and-half or milk of choice.

    I used cranberries, walnuts, and these cocoa nibs I bought at Trader Joe's a while back but hadn't found a great use for. They are delicious in this and (with the cranberries) add chocolate-ey-ness and sweetness!

    That's it! SO fast and easy! I usually eat this as my first or second breakfast when I'm home during the day, and eat 3 eggs for my other breakfast. This breastfeeding mama gets hungry (and I was always a breakfast person, actually). I love that there's some extra protein (10 grams protein in the half-serving of protein powder) but it's also just a tasty, warm treat that I can customize for what I want each day.
