One of my favorite recipes pre-THM was Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal. This oatmeal was cooked in milk, so it was super creamy, was laced with the perfect brown sugar cinnamon mix and was topped with a creamy icing. It probably had as much sugar as three donuts! I’ve been craving a breakfast similar to my old standby, so I decided to create a healthier version of this oatmeal with a protein filled glaze and plenty of cinnamon flavor. Did I mention this recipe is an E? This recipe makes a single bowl of oatmeal but is sure to be a crowd-pleaser if you multiply it.
Mix 1/2 C. of rolled oats with 1 C. of almond milk in a small saucepan. Let this cook over low-medium heat until the oats are cooked to your liking. When your oats are done, stir in 1/8 t. molasses, sweetener to taste (I used 3 T. Truvia), 2 t. cinnamon and a dash of salt. Let the oatmeal cool while you create your “icing”.
To make the icing, mix 1 T. protein powder with 2 T. Greek Yogurt, 1/4 t. butter or caramel flavoring, and sweetener to taste. I wanted my topping super sweet, so I used 1 1/2 T. Truvia. If this glaze mixture is too thick, you can add 1/2 T. almond milk. Drizzle the glaze over the oatmeal and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon!
This oatmeal is the perfect E breakfast paired with some berries or a small wedge of cantaloupe. The greek yogurt and protein powder provide the perfect amount of protein to start your day!
