Breakfast Protein Oats

  • 1 shake OWYN Dark Chocolate Protein Drink about 1 3/4 cups
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds

Topping Ideas

  • fresh raspberries optional, for topping
  • vegan chocolate chips


  • Bring the protein shake, water, maple syrup, and vanilla to a simmer in a small pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add in the rolled oats and cocoa powder, stirring and cooking for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the chia seeds and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!


TIP: If the oats seem too thick, feel free to adjust the amount of water (or milk) to get the desired oatmeal consistency. Once you've finished cooking the oats, remove from heat and slowly add more liquid (a little bit at a time) until you've reached the right consistency for your personal taste!
