Cinnabon High Protein Oatmeal

cinnabon

When I first heard about making a high protein “frosting” I was deeply suspicious. I love frosting. Especially buttercream. I couldn’t imagine that this topper would actually taste great. 

The secret is in the two ingredients: vanilla protein powder and cream cheese. I used Greek yogurt cream cheese but you could substitute lowfat cream cheese and it would be just fine. 

For under 300 calories you get a breakfast that packs 28g of protein AND helps satisfy your sweet tooth. Win/win, yes? Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup dry old fashioned oats
  2. 1 cup water
  3. pinch salt
  4. 2 egg whites
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  6. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, divided
  7. Optional: packet of stevia
  8. 1 Tbsp Greek yogurt cream cheese
  9. 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used True Nutrition Whey Isolate)
  10. 1-2 Tbsp water or milk to thin frosting
Instructions
  1. Bring water to a boil over high heat in a medium saucepan. Add oats, a pinch of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Lower heat to medium and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Turn off the heat. Add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, then whisk in egg whites gradually, stirring quickly so they don't scramble.
  2. While the oats cook, make your frosting. Mix the protein powder, remaining 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon and vanilla, and cream cheese. Thin with milk or water to make a frosting consistency. Swirl over your oats and eat that up.
