12 Delicious Protein Oatmeal Recipes | Proats Will Totally Revolutionize Your Mornings

These protein oatmeal recipes will put an end to mid-morning hunger pangs, once and for all.

Protein oatmeal (AKA proats) is the nutritious breakfast that’s been missing from your mornings. Mixing protein and oats together makes for a tasty and, most importantly, filling breakfast, keeping hunger pangs at bay ’till lunch time. Winning!

Oats are brimming with beta-glucans – a fiber that slows digestion and keeps you going all morning. They’re also incredibly low in sugar – great for when you’re trying to slim down.

Adding protein powder to your oatmeal is a great way to increase your satiety (fullness), as dietary protein stimulates the release of a number of satiety hormones. Also, if you’re looking to maintain and/or gain muscle mass, you need to consume enough protein every day to support muscle growth.

Take a look through our favorite protein oatmeal recipes below.
