Cherry Bakewell High Protein Oatmeal Recipe
- Vanilla Whey Protein (I used Protein Lifestyle’s Whey Protein in this recipe)
- Almond Milk
- Almond Essence
- Glace Cherry
- Reduced Sugar Jam
How To Make This Cherry Bakewell High Protein Porridge Recipe
- Weigh out your oats into a microwavable bowl
- Combine your protein powder, almond milk, almond essence and some water in a shaker & mix
- Add your liquid to your oats
- Place into a microwave for 2 minutes
- Stop, stir and place back in the microwave for around 1-2 more minutes (until the oatmeal is at a consistency you like)
- Take your jam, and swirl it into your protein porridge
- Place your glace cherry (or cherries) on top
If you don’t mix the whey protein in with your liquid, it will clump and taste like ass. You can add your whey protein after its cooked if you so choose.
About This Cherry Bakewell Protein Porridge
Along with chicken breast, steak, eggs, rice and peanut butter, porridge is a bodybuilding diet staple. It’s also one of my favourite foods. Not only do i enjoy eating bowls of porridge, but pretty much anything containing oats.
Oatmeal, granola, flapjacks, cereal bars, I just cant get enough of them. (Check out my homemade quest bar recipe for a low carb protein bar)
I love Cherry Bakewell Flapjacks. However when trying to squeeze the most out of my diet when cutting, I just can’t seem to fit them into my macros. That’s what gave me the idea to try and create a high protein oatmeal recipe, that contained the cherry bakewell flavour, that would be far more filling than a flapjack.
I’ve got to say, I did a pretty good job!
You can place as many cherries on top as you like. Glace cherries add up pretty quickly, so if you’re watching your carbs, be careful how many you add.
The combination of the vanilla whey and almond essence gives the entire bowl of porridge a really moreish taste, without being overpowering. You can add as much whey as you want, but even just 1 scoop really does turn this into a powerhouse of high protein porridge.
The swirl of jam on the top layer of oats captures that essence of eating a cherry bakewell tart. Of course it wouldn’t be a cherry bakewell inspired recipe without the cherry on the top!
Over To You
