Salted Butter Toffee Protein Oatmeal

It’s been all about oatmeal around here, hasn’t it?

We’ve had high-protein baked oatmeal, scrambled oatmeal…well this morning I just wanted a plain bowl of oatmeal. But for me it has to have protein. Why? Because in my old bariatric age (just turned 5 years post-op), I seem to be developing blood sugar control problems (I refuse to call it hypoglycemia yet) and so starch has to be accompanied by protein!

S’anyway. I have a good bit of leftover sugar-free Torani English Toffee syrup from the Protein Shake Sample Kits so I decided to see how that would work in my protein oatmeal.

Nik’s Salted Butter Toffee Protein Oatmeal


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. quick oats (That’s what’s in the above. I realize that might be WAY too much for some of you, so if need be, cut down to 1/4 c. I’ll give modification directions with the other ingredients.)
  • 1/4 c. Torani sugar-free English Toffee syrup (or use 1 tbsp. for every ounce of oatmeal)
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein (I used Any Whey unflavored. If you are using less than the 1/2 c. serving, use a 1/4 scoop of protein per ounce of oatmeal. So 1/4 c. would be half a scoop of protein).
  • 1 c. skim milk (use twice the amount of milk than oatmeal)
  • A small pat of butter or low-calorie butter substitute
  • A generous pinch of salt (this works especially well if you have large-crystal salt)
Directions:
In a bowl combine your oats, protein powder and syrup until thoroughly mixed. 
Then add syrup until a coarse, thick paste forms.
Add your milk and stir it in thoroughly.
Pop it in the microwave for about three minutes but stop half-way through to stir.
It is done when the oats have absorbed all the liquids. You’ll need to stir again to incorporate the protein all the way.
Top with your pat of butter and your pinch of salt and…
NOM!!!! I think I found a new favorite oatmeal flavor!

  1. Sounds delish! Is Any Whey the protein that cooks best?

  2. I think so, yes. It says it's formulated for cooking and it's always worked great for me!
