This is a lovely recipe perfect for mornings where you feel like a cooked breakfast, but not a full blow cooking and cleaning session! Protein Porridge with Sauteed Fruit Topping is so easy anyone could make it, and easily adaptable for vegans (use almond milk and vegan blend whey).
200ml semi-skimmed milk
Teaspoon of cinnamon
100g rolled oats
50g whey protein
Diced medium red apple
Add the water, milk and cinnamon to a saucepan and warm over a medium heat for several minutes.
Pre-heat a frying pan with half a teaspoon of coconut oil on a medium/high heat.
Add the oats and stir through, reducing the heat slightly, and continually stirring.
Add the fruit to the frying pan- continually pushing it around so it doesn’t stick.
Add the whey protein powder to the oats and stir through, adding more water if necessary, before serving in an appropriate bowl.
After 3-5 minutes of cooking layer the fruit on top of the oats.
This meal can be easily and simply scaled down to better suit you caloric needs- so don’t feel you have to wolf down a portion of this magnitude!
